My desktop computer is toast. It's been dropping power on and off for a couple of weeks now. Thought it best that I back up the HD last night (onto my lappy). Smart move. When I went to turn on the comp this evening, the video went wonky and the sound wouldn't work. Seeing as how both these components are onboard, we've come to the conclusion that the mainboard is toast. The HD and everything else should still be fine, but I don't want to invest in that machine at all. My plan is to save up for a new lappy that'll be able to do everything I was using my desktop machine for (ie. video driver and storage space). As it is, I can't watch video on my lappy now. I just don't have enough processing power to run video with the HD so full (60%). This also means that my playing of Maple Story will be limited. I'll probably be able to play during the week, but the weekends when everyone is here I won't get to play. Oh well, I could be doing something else anyway. (Still trying to read 100 Years of Solitude.)
So that's my latest news. In other news, I feel fat. I haven't had a cigarette in over a week (which is good) but I've been mowing down on snacks. Today the thought came to my mind that maybe my back is hurting because it is not used to the extra weight. I think that would make sense. I know the best way to lose weight is to exercise but I have so little motivation for that and also it is Winter (ie. cold) here, so I don't want to be outside really.
Yesterday I watched the movie Serenity. I spent the entire movie thinking that was the name of a planet. Duh. Anyway, it was pretty good. Went grocery shopping with Ian when he got home from school today. We spent too much but we managed to fit everything in the fridge/cupboard. Jamie is working close til Sunday, so we won't get to have our evening chats for awhile. Last hockey game of the season is on Monday and they are playing the cheating assholes. Gotta pick up meds in the next couple of days. Other than that, can't think of anything to post.
