find a dream

I haven’t blogged in agessssssss. Oh goodness. I promise I won’t turn into someone that only talks about work, but I worked over 10 hours today. For two weeks I worked straight through, working around 10 hours or more a day. Tomorrow might be just as bad. Considering I stayed up WAY too late last night, I’m probably going to have to crash soon too. All of this is to say that I’ve been working a bit lately. Bear has been aces while I’ve been working my tail off though. It’s been the most awesome thing about having to work this much is seeing how amazing of a partner he can be.

I’ve also got family stuff going on. Bear and I are going to visit his mom next month and I’ve been playing an online game with my mom. She’s very attached and plays almost every night and asks me to play with her. So I do very often when I’m not working or telling her I can’t so that I can spend time with Bear. I’ve also been knitting again (YAY). Currently I just have a lot of test squares, but my grandmother has also asked for a turtleneck/scarf thing. I’ve ordered the yarn, it’s just taking a bit to get to me. I’ll post pictures once I figure that out. In the meantime, enjoy my new favorite song:

“Cut It Out” by Kitten

Money’s on fire

Sadly, today I had to face the death of my beloved laptop.

It’s been named many things over the years, most notably, Falkor and most recently, Holiday. Falkor is the name of the Luck Dragon in The Neverending Story and Holiday is a holographic femme fatale in the Star Wars MMORPG that Bear and I were playing. Considering the budget has been constrained since the purchase of Lana (Bear’s Acura) and considering that the only notebook out there with a 2560×1440 or 2560×1600 resolution right now is the Retina Display Mac laptop, we aren’t going to be getting a new notebook right away. I’m trying my best to deal with it like a grown up and not cry into my tea.
