Broken Break

If you've been following my Twitter at all, then by now you've probably gathered that the laptop is still out sick. My tech has been dropping like flies lately; just this afternoon my wireless keyboard and mouse died on me, so I had to walk down to Office Max to get a replacement.I still don't… Continue reading Broken Break

It was knitting week, with a side of TV.

It has been a long day. An incredibly long day, filled with crazy, angry people, including one guy who thought it was totally cool to use my workspace in an associates only section of the store as a changing table for his 2.5 year old.Yeah, it was that kind of crazy.On the bright side, though,… Continue reading It was knitting week, with a side of TV.

Borrowed time and a borrowed laptop

After a weekend spent with my parents and hiding in my room, I'm trying to be more optimistic.

For the past few days, I've been trying to get my electronic self in order--the aftermath of my laptop falling apart. It's hard to get 500GB of stuff organized on a computer that has less than half that space. I have my external hard drive hooked up, but I have to copy the files onto… Continue reading Imploding

Retro Laptop

 I'm a bit late this time around. Yesterday was insane, and today left me exhausted even before unexpected (though still welcome) visitors arrived. Now that the typecast is up, I think it's time for bed.

Stuff and Things

1. This was going to be a typecast, but I didn't feel up to hauling out all 40 pounds of Prince Henry.2. I got zero response on the S.T/A.R project, so that is on hold for the moment. 3. Instead of working on the stuff I'm supposed to be working on for the past few… Continue reading Stuff and Things
