...dreamers

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser

Rob's was entertaining.

We played Settlers and watched Fast and the Furious. Also watched some of the British House of Commons on C-SPAN where everyone basically mocks Tony Blair for doing stupid shit.

It's funny as hell, and yes. We are huge dorks. But at least we are educated about World Politics!

Ha ha.

Anywho. Home now. Really fucking glad there's no school tomorrow. Disappointed the weekend went by so quickly. Mixed feelings about how little I got done. Overall, I've definitely spent more time this weekend in pajamas than not. I took far too many naps for two days and did too much lazing and lounging around. I blame my mother, as usual.

Now I'm going to do some more of that sitting around on my ass doing nothing in pajamas. Whee.

And I look back on Venus, and I look back on Mars

Despite my last post being at midnight last night...I didn't go to bed until 2:30.

I was readin'. I think I only have three more chapters to go.

I'm only up now because Fayanne woke me up. We are having lunch with Mama. Oh joy of fucking joys.

I'll be back later, kids.

I'm sorry Mama, I didn't mean to hurt you. I didn't mean to make you cry

This song is too damn catchy. Grrr...

Lunch was fine. I'm now home. Bored. Awake. Blah.

I could...
-Take a nap
-Read more Ender's Game
-Type out the STUNTS agenda for the Production Board meeting tomorrow
-Finish my STUNTS questions things for Shaina for the newspaper
-Watch TV and vege all day
-Go to Cici's and make new icons
-Abduct someone and make them go with me to the Art Institute


What will I do? Probably the STUNTS stuff, maybe the nap, and most likely the reading. *sigh*

I suppose I've done what I should have...

Might head up to Cici's. I want a new Britney icon...and who knows what else.

I never meant to make you cry, but tonight I'm cleanin' out my closet

AHHHHHHH!!!! Fuck you for deleting my post!!!!

I hate Windows!!!!! Explorer can kiss my ass!!!!!

I WANT A MAC!!!!!!!!!!

*ahem*


Having that said...what I wanted to do was show off my two new pretty icons. The one I'm displaying obviously reflects myself right now. Elegant, stylish, beautiful and graceful...while yelling at my fucking computer.

The second, which I might actually end up keeping for longer than a few days is this:


It's cynical and snarky and I'm a sucker for the Stronger video. So yay. [This would actually best describe my mood, I suppose.]

It's a little late for the "vegging all day" and I couldn't go downtown and make it back for my appointment with Doctor Lady #2, so I guess I can read some more. I have until 7.

I keep on wonderin' if I sleep too long, will I even wake up again...or something

Fuck fuck fuckity fuck fuck.


My computer is really screwed up tonight. And usually shutting it completely down for a while will help.

It's just had 2 hours of complete off time...and it's still screwed up.

Fuck fuck fuck.

....

On a completely unrelated note:
I wonder if refrigerating cereal would give a similar effect to soaking in cold milk. It isn't the milk I'm going for...it's the chill.

And then it doesn't get soggy

It's happened at last...I'm starting to get started

Fun news first...Jason sent me a 4 second clip from the first Evita rehearsal they had tonight. Yay!

And...I'll probably finish Ender's Game tonight.

............

And the bad shit...

I honestly don't know what's wrong with my computer. I've tried everything I can think of to try, but the bugger's 4 and a half years old. And it's a PC. It's obviously a grimm future.

So here's my issues(and maybe some of y'all can help):
-The resolution is funky (I had to compensate by screwing with the actual resolution)
-The colors are all grainy, or just plain wrong (usually reverting to a gray color)
-There are funky dashed lines around all the windows
-It's overall just really slow
-Highlighting stuff makes it purple

I've restarted, I've shut down, I've cleaned out files (though now most of the big stuff lives on the other computer because they are networked), I've turned off the sleep function and the screen saver, I've taken things out of the startup function (it was opening about 10 programs each time it was rebooted...poor thing). *sigh* Oy. Not now, you piece of shit. Please.


SO! Any suggestions? Please? Bueller?

And I still need you. And I still miss you. And now I wonder...

I finished Ender's Game. Woo! And since it's not midnight yet, I'm saying that I accomplished my goal of reading it all this weekend.

Yay.

My computer is still fucked though. And if I go to bed now, I only get 7 hours of sleep.

*sigh* Life is a give and take.


Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you...
