Basically, this will be a place where I can just talk about some of the cool things going on this week. Maybe I saw something cool in the news, or we can talk about the latest episode of a TV show I love. We’ll see where it goes.
I finally got around to starting the Welcome to Night Vale podcast. I’m loving it. I tried to explain it to my husband, who loves to listen to A Prairie Home Companion each week, as a sci-fi News from Lake Wobegon, in the desert. I’ve been hearing about it for ages, and I knew it would be good, but the book coming out was the push I needed to start the series.
The Deadpool movie has been out for weeks and I still haven’t seen it. This is because I have an irrational fear of going to the movie theatre. The smell of buttered popcorn actually makes me nauseous. Thanks anxiety.
I had to replace my computer last weekend. On Friday evening my old laptop was working fine. I walked away for a bit and when I came back I had a black screen with a single line of white text telling me that “The Operating System cannot be found.” Fortunately, a hard restart solved the problem, but it’s a sign that the hard drive is going to crash soon. Better to go ahead and replace the computer, so that I can still move my files myself. I don’t want to have to have the IT guys try to save my files after the hard drive crashes.
My new laptop is an Asus. I’m pleased with the specs. It has a 2 TB hard drive capacity, 2.5 gigahertz Intel 6th Generation Core i7 processor, 12 GB of RAM and a 15.6″ touch screen. The only thing I’m not loving is Windows 10. That is going to take some getting used to.
