Flare Zatsudan 28 July 2022 2/3
Flare recently went to buy a new laptop. (For context, she plans to take a break in September and wanted a laptop to play games since she plans to go home to see her parents and possibly go on a short trip.) While there, she also went to buy Undertale and Yume Nikki goods. She saw all the Sans goods in the store and wanted to buy all of them. Flare knew that there were goods that were only available in the physical store so she wanted to go there herself rather than order online. She also bought a Hollow Knight coaster.
The laptop she bought was more expensive than her actual streaming PC. Her 2-year-old laptop was a Ryzen 9 and 2080 SUPER. Flare has apparently started a business and bought a bunch of stuff since the fiscal year is ending soon, so the new laptop will be a fixed asset and depreciation will be incurred. (I have no idea what this means, I copy-pasted this from DeepL because I don't understand Japanese accounting terms.)
New laptop specs: Core i9 12900H, 15.6inch 4K 144Hz monitor, RTX3080Ti, DDR5-4800 32GB, M.2 SSD 1TB, 230W PSU (AC adapter) (According to chat, this should be about 400k-500k yen, possibly over 600k)
The first thing Flare wondered about it was if it could handle ARK. The employee ensured her that there are no better laptops than this one. Flare said that she will be playing ARK and Minecraft during her break, so the elfriends can peek at other holos' streams to see her online. The very first thing Flare downloaded on her new laptop were Elden Ring and Sekiro. Flare also bought a laptop cooler since she knew that playing these high-spec games would be bad for the laptop without it. Flare spent the rest of the day practicing mahjong, doing her merch signing and also installing Steam and Discord on her new laptop.
>Date with Fubuki
Flare and Fubuki went to a stamp rally collaboration with MonHun at Yokosuka. They decided to meet at 10am to go but needed 3-4 hours to arrive. They wanted to eat Yokosuka curry but the store was closed. Since Flare woke up earlier to go to Fubuki's place to meet up, she knew that Fubuki would definitely be sleeping since she didn't respond to her texts. While doing the stamp rally, Flare kept pushing Fubuki to read "Harigane Service" as usual. When going home, Flare took a taxi and the taxi driver was very talkative. He kept bragging about his daughter the entire time but Flare's komyushou limited her to basic responses. Fubuki then wrote in chat that she was sleeping the entire way home in her taxi.
They actually wanted to go to an onsen but they didn't have a spare set of clothes, and they had been walking around the whole day and were sweaty, so they didn't want to bathe then put on their sweaty clothes again. They agreed to go to the onsen another day.
It has been a long time since Flare and Fubuki first met and she felt very close to Fubuki. She felt that Fubuki doesn't really talk about herself often and was glad that she could open up to Flare. Since Fubuki loves all the holos but doesn't really put as much care into herself, Flare is happy that Fubuki can talk about herself to her. The next step would be for Flare to call her "Fubuki" instead of "Fubu-chan" which Fubuki is perfectly fine with. Flare said she might one day just drop it randomly like "Hey, Fubuki, about this..." Fubuki also talked a lot about Rust and gambling and Flare thought that a satisfied Shirakami was a good sight.
But Flare was walking around the whole day, so her feet got sore at the end. Flare thinks her shoe size might be wrong since she always gets sore while wearing her loafers or sneakers for the whole day. She thought about making a custom-made pair of shoes instead.
