Meet my new drum carder.
...yeah. Doesn't look like a drum carder, does it?
Two days ago, a virus ate my computer. I'd backed it up a few days earlier, because it was acting funky, so not much data was lost. I went out and used my drum carder budget (I'd been saving up for a while) to buy a net book. The net book, plus the external CD ROM, came out to almost exactly what I'd planned to spend on the drum carder. The kismet of the whole thing should probably please me, but it doesn't.
I'd been planning to get a net book for awhile. When I go back to school, I'm going to need something like this to use for school; the days of taking notes by hand for hours at a time are over. With this, I should do all right - type notes for all my classes except math. Do math by hand. Oughta work.
So, ultimately, I just got this a little early. Didn't derail my plan entirely. But I'm still mad I didn't get a drum carder.
Other news... Hmmm.
I think I'm starting to feel better. Still having trouble sleeping, but otherwise the breathing is going better. Now I need to shovel out the apartment, seeing as I haven't really cleaned in a month, since I got sick. Urgh.
Started watching Castle. Fun show. Humor, good writing, good mysteries (I have yet to figure one out in the first half hour of the show - my usual rule of thumb for decent plot), and Nathan Fillion. Can't really beat it.
Am finally gearing up to start on the bag I'm supposed to be knitting with my mother-in-law. She's been at it for two months now. With luck, this should mean fiber related posts soon. I hope.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go re-install a shitload of software. Anyone seen my Civ IV install CD?
