That's not what the Death card means

Yoda would say you are reckless

Why, yes, now that you mention it, it has been a while. Hopefully, by now, none of you are hanging on my every post... since that would mean that I'm really not posting enough. That may be true, but the upshot is: don't hold your breath. I'm working, still unpacking, trying to go places and do things, you know, stuff.

Today, stuff included taking my laptop out to King of Prussia for a little Apple Store attention. Turns out my processor was not cooked (whew!) but my hard drive was. That's kinda good news (easier and cheaper to fix, I guess) and bad news (a cooked processor would have meant I could just go ahead and buy a new computer). So, after getting this mixed bag of professional opinion, I decided to go ahead and buy a new computer anyway. As with all things computery, Mikey had to hold my hand through this process as well ("It sounds like you're talking yourself out of it. Don't."). I'm very pleased with the result. It is shiny and new and neat and almost cool enough to make me forget about the price. I'm nothing if not a cheap bastard, a skinflint, a pennypincher -- but I am also a geek, and geeks need their technolust slaked from time to time.

What else is new... office drama (not that interesting and mostly resolved now), interviews (can you see me suing people for slip-and-fall, whiplash or "other permanent or recurring serious injury"? More on that soon), drinking in Doylestown, a complete set of Crisis Heroclix, basic cable for which I'm not paying, and the usual quandaries of life and the law.

I guess that's largely it. It's getting warm all too soon, and dampening any hopes I may have held out for an April blizzard. It's a little hard to tell here in the new apartment, because it's warm all the time.

I'm going to put some music in my new iTunes and play with the laptop's built-in digital camera.
