Time to pimp!

Candor by Pam Bachorz is out now! It's getting immense praise, and I'm being slightly hypocritical by recommending it without having read it, but I promise it will be next on my reading list. I already know I'm going to love it because a) the subject matter, and b) Pam is awesome! So everyone check it out and support a new writer!

Aside from friends getting to see their dreams come true, I'm in the midst of dealing with Laptopgate '09. It shuts off about three times a day and since no one seems to want to call me to say, "I loved your resume, please come work for us!" I'm trying to will it to not stop working altogether since I won't be able to afford a new one at the moment.

You know what else doesn't help my laptop situation? My cat. He likes to lay down right by the fan blocking the escaping air. Why?! I know he likes it because it's warm, but come on. Cats. I swear.

Alright, let's see how much writing I can get done before my laptop shuts off again. Good luck to my friend, Lon, as she ventures off to the most amazing script writing expo on the planet. Next year I will be there for sure!

To Do Lists - What's the point?

Today I'm going to work on my personal site. I keep neglecting it and that's not doing anyone any good. It's not that I mean to neglect it. It just falls by the wayside, but I've been fantasizing about all the stuff I can do with it, so I think that means I need to go work on it a bit.

My laptop is on its last leg. It keeps shutting off at will because it's overheating. I've had it for almost three years which apparently is the life expectancy of a laptop anyway. Unfortunately, since this is my only computer, it's pretty much my lifeline for everything. I'm scared to start the backup process because everytime I sync it with my mybook it shuts right off. Ahhh.

I started reading The Fellowship of the Ring! It's so fun. I've been on a massive LotR kick lately, so it's fun to go back to the beginning and start all over. Every now and then I get in the mood to re-read Harry Potter or His Dark Materials, but then I think of all the books that I haven't read yet that I need to read and I ixnay the idea. Someday.

As for writing, I'm having a lot of fun writing the "pop group" story as I'm calling it for now. I don't know if it's something I'll ever share with anyone, but it's keeping me entertained. We'll see how it turns out. I need to buckle down and work on the other stuff that I need to get written though, so the "pg" story may have to take a backseat for a little while.

And now I'm going to work on my site. Hopefully, if my laptop doesn't shut off too many times throughout the night, I'll be adding stories, pictures, and articles, while watching the ALMA Awards. Score!
