missed opportunities, thwearted intentions, oompromises, and an array of disasters, mostly minor :p
Please forgive any excessive typos, but (exemplifying both a disaster and a compromise), I am using my TV (okay it is Merc's TV but I am borrowing it longterm) as a monitor and I can only sorta read the screen because the resolution is too shitty. But it is better than trying to read a blacked out screen - apparently it is probably not the monitor backlight itself, but the backlight inverter. Hooray>? Either way, that is $30-50 I really don't have until the end of the month. Unless I get my reimbursements from any of the three agencies that owe me money. hah.
So yes,. I missed international movie vieweing, because I am a butt and didn't get the movie and couldb't get up early enough. But it wouldn't have mattered because oph my previously outlined computer woes.
Instead of doing any of my work, I mopped my floors and took Jola to the Dog park with Shelby though! so that was good. she also brought me tasty cake! Which was very good :)
Ryan came over and helped me set up the Svideo, which was very nice! And i fed him tasty cake. the cycle of baked good, huzzah! Then *I* baked cookies for a party I was going to go to tonight.
Only i am retarded and didn't properly arrange myself a ride, and didn't realize, really, until I was pretty much ready to go. The state of my computer at the moment means that I can really only use my landline (it is hard to get to skype in this set up, and I can't read people's names or numbers anyway :p) And I can only make local calls from the landline....for those people whose numbers aren't just on the computer somewhere. Bleh! So, communication was made tricky.
I was moaping, but Ryan convinced me to scrounge up money to go see RED, and I found $6 in my work bag, so huzzah! of course, after he'd left, and maybe 2 min before he actually got here, I got a call form some other friends offering a ride to the party..... butby then I'd changed and Ryan was on his way :p
i brought cookies to the movie though, nom nom nom. They turned out really well!
So, the movie was hilariuos and I'm glad I got out to do *something * rather than be stuck at home with no real useful internets 9trying to read much of the screen hurts my eyes :/)
But the adventure was not over. Ryan had to pee, apparently, when he dropped me offd, and peeled off pretty fast, as opposed to his susal 'wait and make sure you are going to get in to your house fine' routine. Which was unfortunate, because my keys were/are either in his car, or,. more liekly, in the theater (he's checked since). So i spent a good 5-10 min going through my pockets and running through my options..... Megan and aaron living in walking distance.... but they are off camping this weekend. I don't know which house my apartment manager lives in, and I don't have a cellphone to call maintenance. I could walk to Neil and David's and crash on their couch?
but then I realized that, contrary to my regular habit, I'd forgotten to close and lock the window before I went out, so i popped the screen and climbed in. woot! And did so without maze escaping (though he was fascinated by the process)
Oh, I forgot - a bunch of my school peps went to renfaire today, and i had to miss out on that due to poverty and lack of coordination(I knew people were gong but had no details, really. Of course if I hadn't decided that i was too poor, I could have found out ;p). but another missed opportunity anyway, as I knew a few other people who would have been there!
Anyway, i'm home, I got to go out and so *something* today, I have lots of tasty baked goods and clean floors (in the kitchen, bathroom, and entry, anyway), my computer does not need to be entirely replaced. i saw a good movie with good company.
but sill. ugh! And I drank some tea with dinner because I thought I would need energy to be up late partying, and instead I'm just home with too much energy to sleep :/
