Tuckered Out and Eating my Head for Supper
It's been quite a week here.
Firstly, my 18month old laptop died. To start with, it ate its Intel Technology Driver, then purple baby-san decided to munch the hard drive as well. Result was the return to full time employment of Machiney , my hard working ThinkPad. He still boots up and can be used to type articles, eBay listings, tweets etc on. But this keyboard is rather shot and I need to find another, plus find someone who knows how to repair it for me.
Then I need to locate the warranty for baby-san. The wherewithall to buy a replacement not being with me right now,you see. So this morning, I dived into one of my storage boxes in the hope that this elusive bit of paper might be within. Well, I found many other things, and lots of bedding for my colleague's straw-allergic horse, in the form of flyers, magazines and envelopes. But no warranty.
After trundling over to work to dispose of an eBay Collection Only item, I failed to find the pair of sandals I had hoped to see in my favorite clothes store. I came home via the fish and chip shop and demolished a large portion of sausage and chips for my only meal of the day. Americans please note, battered sausage and chips, proper UK comfort food.
Spent the rest of the afternoon with my head in various crates, trying to spy this elusive warranty. Cleared one crate and found another sheaf of recyclable paperwork for my colleague's horse. Found where I had stashed some eBay items and various other things I had been seeking. Worked out what was in the crates at the head of the stairs (penpal things, Christmas decorations, old bits of computer kit, a spare shower head and other things we need to keep for now). Started my next Collection Only eBay stash.
Had a bop around earlier to Madonna's 'Hung Up' video . Present energy levels preclude doing the same to other favorite videos, such as Eric Prydz/Steve Winwood 'Call On Me' and Fedde LeGrand 'Put Your Hands Up (for Detroit)'. Attempted to stave off the flow of sub-par music emanating from SceneSat radio station by queuing real music by DJ H0ffman and other favorites by Mordi, Jogeir Lilledahl and other demoscene regulars. Discussed the merits of various Mylittlepony characters with my husband by text. He is spending the weekend with a bunch of mates, at least one of whom 'ships RainbowDash. A real live brony . I approve.
After all that, I am now yawningly tired, enjoying my wineoclock and really quite happy to sit here and type for the rest of the evening until I fall asleep.
