ROCKETMAN'S BACK! Complete with a shiny new keyboard and a functional battery! Now he can strut down the street and all the lady computers will stare at his fine, fine bottom case.

As a reminder, guys! It's Just A Game now has open reserves! Please check it out; we're already shaping up to have a wonderful cast, and the more the merrier!

In less jolly news, Rocketman is in the computer hospital. Sunday evening he spat out screws, and suddenly attempts to try and close the monitor became very difficult, with the siding coming off and computer innards showing. HP said they'll take care of it, but that means sending him away for perhaps a full week; I'm relying on the home computer now, which at some point since I got Rocketman became slow as balls. Just a heads up for anyone who I didn't whine to about already |D;;b

I guess the advantage to having unreliable 'net access would be it might force me to do more writing. And considering all the terrible things Evil AU has been doing... I think some brofic is in order. More as the situation develops =|

If my computer keeps ruining things for me, I think my head might explode.

Hot water's on, and guess what else? WIRELESS INTERNET!

For the first time in the year since I got him, Rocketman can move freely throughout the house without a big fat 60-foot cord connecting him to the internet! Until he runs out of batteries.

For the last day, Comcast decided to shut off all the interwebs in the whole area, but by the time it was back up, dad's new router was ready to go, and now there's nothin' that can stop me! Awwwww yeah.
unij: YOU BET KID (Guh-loooooom)
Ugh, moving tomorrow. So not looking forward to it. I like our house. This new one is so... not the house I've lived in for thirteen years. 8(

Dunno if Internet will be up and running tomorrow, but I'm figuring it will be by the end of the day. Hopefully. We'll see.

Rocketman continues to be a douche of a computer, with lousy battery life and now the siding is coming off. Come on, man, you can do better than that.

Been playing Plants Vs. Zombies a lot lately, because that song they made is completely awful but mind-numbingly catchy. It's just plain silly.

I am so out of practice with writing fics, but the drabbles I've been doing for the 30 Challenge have been pretty fun, though none of them have been very long--all under 400 words. Though, they did inspire me to work on a slightly longer fic idea. I'm not sure how long that one will go, but it's been interesting to work with so far.
unij: YOU BET KID (Badass Enough To Not Care)
UGH, COMPUTER. I can understand shutting down with, like, 10 percent battery left. I can even accept 25, though that's pushing it. But 35% of the battery left, and my computer suddenly clicks off? Hell with that. This thing doesn't even give me any warning of running low on juice until 25%, and even then it's a barely noticeable icon in the corner. Bull hockey.

Also, saw Inception tonight with my friend. We were both pretty solidly underwhelmed: it wasn't bad, but we really didn't think it lived up to the hype at all.

Day 11: A song from your favorite band

I think this question is cheap for making me pull out my favorite band when i could use it on another category 8| Regardless, They Might Be Giants is a brilliant group--one thing I love, beyond their whimsy and bizarreness, is the fact that you get songs about things that you never hear about; while everyone else is writing love songs, here we have a song about the effects of imperialism and the glazing over of history, put to a fun and easy tune.

(speaking of Tiny Tunes, dear god I only realized the other day that Elmyra Duff is supposed to be the opposite of Elmer Fudd. DERRRRRP)

Day 12: A song from a band that you hate

Again, I don't really listen to things I don't like, so nothing really stands out in my mind as a terrible band who I loathe. That being said, while Nickelback songs on their own are okay--I can listen to them on the radio, etc--it drives me insane that they are pretty much all recycles of the exact same song over and over. The same thing applies to Linkin Park.

30 Days )
unij: YOU BET KID (Digimon are so squishy <3)
I beat Diabolical Box with 123 Puzzles completed =D This plot was even sillier than the last one but it was still buttloads of fun and also had some amazing animated cutscenes, as ever. Though I'm confused, did the people actually live there or were they just... *spoiler*s? I dunno man.

Now all I gotta do is wait for the Time Travel plot 8D And go and work on the last 30 or so augh this game

Rocketman got a spyware saying "YOU GOT VIRUSES QUICK BUY ANTIVIRUS STUFF MAN" and it was very annoying. But he's okay now.

I need to find more icons

unij: YOU BET KID (Puzzle Road Trip!)
Laptop got fixed. Apparently it was a glitch in the update that was affecting all people who tried it. HP was swamped with "WTF GUYS." But once we got a call through, they really were quick about helping us through it and getting Rocketman back online. Yay!

In other news, I've got over 80 of Layton's puzzles solved, and I haven't even had to look online or cheat at all! Though I have spent some hint coins. But my hamster (named Fawful) is fit and ready to sniff out any new ones anyway, so I have no worries. This game, it is ridiculous fun and makes me feel both smart and incredibly stupid.

Hmmm. Three rounds of unfortunate, with increasingly unhappy events.

1) So I've had this keychain for like a year and a half now. GameStop gave it to you for preordering Apollo Justice. I liked it, so I decided to wear it on a belt loop pretty much every day for the aforementioned year and a half. I didn't even like AJ that much, but it was a nice little stable part of my fashion sense, right? Just something for me to fiddle with and know would be there. Yesterday at the fair, I believe I lost it. I figured it would happen eventually, but it's still sort of sad for me after this long.

2) Today, I took my dog for a very quick walk. I forgot to grab a poop bag, entirely my fault. And since I wanted to keep the walk short, I went on a different route, down a street that I usually bypass. When Kelly does her business and I got no method to clean up with, the resident sees and proceeds to chew me out. Apparently, someone has been not cleaning up after their dog pooping in that same spot nearly daily, and he of course assumes it to be me. I apologize profusely and try to explain that this is a rather one-time sort of event for me, but I don't think he bought it. He gets my name and address out of me, and threatens to call Animal Services if it happens again. The guy's got the right to be mad at me, sure, but if he's calling animal authorities on me for something my dog doesn't do, then what the fuck am I supposed to do about it?

3) Rocketman got blue screen of death'd today. It said I needed to restart to get updates, I go sure, why not. But when it boots back up, a minute or so later, bam. BSoD. Damn, okay, maybe it's a one-timer, try again. Nope. Three times in a row. I've got all sorts of warrantees and whatnot on this guy, so one way or another they should fix it, but this is not the best omen for a brand new lappy.

Man, and yesterday was so good.

unij: YOU BET KID (menacing)
So we got Julie and Julia at work today. If you've been paying attention, perhaps you are aware that this movie is getting big exposure and pretty damn good reviews. And you may also notice that today is the very first day for it, and I think we're the only local theater that has it. Why does this matter? Because this combination never happens at our theater.

See, what we usually get is movies that are usually artsy or depressing, the kind only people who are old, haughty, or both go to. And most often, we only get said movies a week or two after their premiere, when the bulk of viewers went to whatever other nearby theater had it.

In short, today was packed. In a four hundred seat theater, we rarely exceed one-fifty people on the weekends. We had three hundred and eighteen at the seven o'clock showing.

Ganager is freaking out per usual, and due to business being so huge, he asked me to cover an extra half-shift tomorrow. Why not, it's not like I got anything else to do. Yay money.

In other news, we figured out how to get Rocketman to connect to the internet upstairs: a really long cord. WOO SEMIMOBILITY

Guess who has a shiny new laptop computer

Sarah does

It's freaking 18 inches it's huge

We can't get it to connect wirelessly yet because apparently our router is too old. This damn well better not be a problem at college.

however that's not what's on my mind at the moment. What is on my mind is I CAN DOWNLOAD THINGS NOW YAAAAAAAAAY
