Ok, BIG update here. Lots of stuff happened in the last week or so... But first of all, Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] wook! Hope your day's wonderful :)

~*~


I watched "The Ring" this weekend. Mildly disappointing... Although Samara's kind of creepy if you think about her for long enough.

I got my computer to work! Well, actually, hubby did. We bought a nice nobreak (good thing, too, my building is constantly having energy peaks), and new speakers, and now everything's working! Yay! And! Hubby managed to save all my Premiere projects and Smallville eps, and the Premiere installation files. And! AND! He got us a 40GB hard drive! I'm in vidding heaven at the moment... :)

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bonibaru, I watched the first episode of Firefly (it works, boni!). Loved it! I'll be spending the rest of the week watching the rest of the episodes, and who knows? I might even vid something if the muse whispers :) Although I'm not counting on this, especially considering the big backlog of vids in my todo list (including someone's birthday vid...). But yay! Firefly! And Jen, when are you going to finish that incredible vid you showed me, oh, 4 months ago? I still have it in my computer, you know... And it's damn good.

I spent most of the weekend playing "The Longest Journey" with my husband on the computer. It's an adventure game, and I adore the protagonist, April Ryan. She kicks ass ;) Well, not in the "Tomb Raider" way, but still, she's witty and sarcastic and just plain *fun*. I have never enjoyed playing a character as much as this :)

On the downside, and about the *only* bad thing that's happened these past days (other than the slight depression you guys witnessed), "Black & White" refuses to work on my computer. I've been waiting to play that for almost a year now. I have the CDs, the manuals, everything. But apparently there's some sort of incompatibility either with my video card or with Win2K, or with my video card running on Win2K. Frustrating. Gah.

~*~


I have discovered (and fallen in love with) Dave Matthews Band and Train. I've been listening to them for *hours* today, and can't seem to tire. "Angel" rings of Chlark to me, and I just love "Drops of Jupiter". Yay for new favorite bands! And yay for my sister for showing them to me :)

~*~


Well, that's about it... Not really that much, come to think of it... Today's a new Smallville episode (new for me, anyway). I'm having the greatest time watching Smallville for the first time on TV, withough spoilers. I might start doing this permanently :)

Nah, who am I kidding? As soon as I get a decent internet connection at home, I'll go back to downloading from the 'net ;)

I would like to announce that [livejournal.com profile] bonibaru is one of the most amazing and nice people I've met.

I got it! Firefly! In a little box labeled "Child Tea Set" :) I am immensely happy...

*stares at new shiny gifts*
*remembers melted down video card at home*
*weeps*

Um, do you think it would be pushing it to watch Firefly eps at work?

But! Hubby already bought another video card (and a big-ass cooler to avoid another melt-down), so I'll probably be able to watch them this weekend! Yay!

Thanks, boni. You're the best :)
