|Understand why the fuss, HERE.|

You're wondering if this is "the post" in which I show you my shiny new computer, which I bought with your generous help, right?
All donations have arrived now, but before it happened I did something stupid. I asked Paypal to transfer all my donations to my credit card. I didn't know at the time which computer I was going to buy, and knowing that such withdrawal (as they call it) would take a few days, I thought I should anticipate myself. If I were to go to a physical store I'd have the money ready, and if I decided to buy it online I could use my credit card all the same. Precautious girl, eh?
But you see, what I wasn't counting is that Paypal withdrawals take from 3 (okay) to 14 freaking working days! Why a mere virtual transaction would take so long? I'm not sure, but my sister (from whose computer I'm writing now) suspects they take all withdrawals and put it on highly lucrative short term investments. How else would they be able to maintain that structure with the pitiful commissions they charge for their services?
Well, since I'm here and I'd hate to see you through a whiny-only post, I'm going to share some good news as well. ;)
See the picture up there? It's the mark that you'll see on every reward-post I'm preparing for my lovely and generous knights. Here's what you'll see at Randomities as soon as evil Paypal releases my darned money:
Some of the major contributors will have a whole week dedicated to them at Randomities. Yes, a whole week! :D
Say, Cathy Webster, who's been a fundamental help for me to reaching my funding goal: she'll have an interview posted on Tuesday, and a story featuring herself and someone close to her on Friday.
Laura Eno, for instance, will have an additional book review, posted on Sunday. The differentiation here is only because Cathy hasn't written a novel yet. If she had, she'd have the same treatment as Laura. These two are the almost-ready stuff that are coming up soon. Of course I'm preparing other knight-dedicated weeks for the near future. ;D
In the meantime, there will be people on the spotlight with single posts as well. So prepare yourself for amazing books to be reviewed here, guest posts, interviews and more!
I'm almost as excited about the knight-weeks and posts as I am from having the new CP in my fidgeting hands. ;D
Update: I finally have it! If you're curious to see pictures, please visit this post. ;)
