Don’t Die, My Darling

      No Comments on Don’t Die, My Darling

My beloved laptop has been increasingly angry at me lately. It’s overheating ten ways to Sunday. It started with my graphics card — fair enough. It probably could use a replacement and/or new thermal paste. I use my computers hard and the GPU seems to feel it in this particular computer. And then? The CPU cores started going nuclear. I… Read more »

Fly-By Birthday-ness

I came, I saw, I turned 35. I had a good meal, I socialised with friends, and got slightly miffed by someone being an ass. The latter was a minor dent on an otherwise stellar day, but I had a good whine about it on the way home and feel oodles better. I think. *chuckles* But really, it was mainly… Read more »

A Surplus of Cake

      No Comments on A Surplus of Cake

Went into work. Got stuff done, got some other stuff not done, and managed to stump myself and a co-worker. I guess par for the course when I’m actually in the office, ha ha. But yeah, I’m going to die by cake before the week is out. We took in a cake to the office because ‘office rules’ are people… Read more »

I’m tired, heh. It’s not like I’ve done much of anything today, but I’m still tired. I managed the one thing I *had* to do past childcare, which was bathing. I was commenting to Z that I wish it didn’t take so many spoons to handle bathing, ’cause I was feeling so freaking good for getting scrubbed off. I guess… Read more »

Just Me Today

      No Comments on Just Me Today

It’s Sunday. Which means I’m suffering low-grade depression and anxiety because my body apparently is programmed for such on a Sunday night, never mind there is absolutely no logical reason for it. But then, that’s the problem of those things… they tend to defy logic. I guess this week it’s sliiiiiiiiightly more reasonable because I’m going into work a day… Read more »

I have had the worst freaking luck in my Shiny hunting the last couple of days. I’ve effed up searches, having two end abruptly at 179 Pokémon deep, and 113 Pokémon deep. That’s… well, hours lost, and much annoyance gleaned. So it was sort of edifying today that I got this Grubbin here 22 Pokémon in, and Magnemite 60 in…. Read more »

After a semi-epic struggle this afternoon, I managed to get Littlerbit’s hair brushed and pulled back. Between those two things and putting a shirt on her, I apparently offended her greatly, ha ha. My darling little camera hog was even put out enough to not want to ham it up for the camera, though I did get some cute pictures… Read more »


      No Comments on Bias

I decided this afternoon when trying to figure out what to knit tonight that I would attempt to do a blanket square on a bias. All that really means is working it corner to corner rather than top to bottom. I need to block it to see how I really feel about it, but it came out looking pretty cool…. Read more »

When All Else Fails…

Then go for a factory reset. The upshot is that my phone had a backup from yesterday to download, and everything seems to be working properly again. I’ve been so frustrated, ’cause I love my phone and I’m not ready to replace it, and I’d been so annoyed that I kept putting it down and not trying to sort it… Read more »

I have no idea what the frack is going on, but my phone seems to have bit it. Well. The things that I do it I can’t do, which pretty much circumvents the whole phone part of it that I don’t use. To get my Instagram fix, I’ve been using my long-neglected digital camera + Bluestacks. But like… it’s not… Read more »
