I've just been watching Julie and Julia (that is the name of the movie, isn't it?), which I did enjoy watching again, even the Julie parts which I admit are not the equal of the Julia parts but still watchable. Anyway, I just checked and the Julie/Julia Project website is still up - the Paypal button (which I seem to remember caused some controversy at the time) is still there, even. The last entry is one she wrote the day that Julia died.

I wasn't intending to do anything much today, because I ran around all day yesterday and I have a full day tomorrow because my class is starting and I have to go buy my books and such, and then Rob got called to go in to work (poor Rob, but yay for overtime!) so all I did was sit around like a lump and watch tv and play DDO. I watched the baseball game (they won!) and then the football game on tape which they also won, and against the hated Colts too, so it's doubly sweet. I was still re-watching football when Rob got home, and then we had to watch the season ender of True Blood, which was also taped. (DV-Rs are wonderful inventions. I didn't even tell the TV to tape football, because I forgot, but I never cancelled the one from last year so it taped it just like it always did.)

I am trying to go to bed a bit earlier. For a long time I was going to bed about the time Rob got up, which was 5:30-ish, and then I moved it up a bit earlier, and I need to continue to move a bit earlier, until I am on something resembling a normal person's schedule. We went to Ikea last week and bought a mattress, which currently lives on the floor in the extra bedroom - the plan is to get a bed to go with it eventually! for Rob to sleep on when I snore too much and drive him out of our bed. He says it's actually quite comfortable.

I would write more but I seem to be quite sleepy so I think I will just take myself to bed.

I did get some GuildWars in this weekend - not a lot, but some - and what I found was that I loathe playing games on that computer, and incidentally that I also hate playing at my mom's nice computer desk. The slide-out keyboard is too low, the desk itself is too high, so there's noplace that's at the right height to suit me. Which is ok, in the end, because both of those will be Rob's when the new computer gets here, and I can go back to playing on the little piece o'crap desk which is the only remaining piece of furniture that Rob had before we got married. It's not a bad little desk, actually, except that it needs refinishing, and more importantly it is starting to develop a crack across the top, probably from me pounding on it all the time! (But hopefully it won't fall apart completely any time soon - especially once it has my shiny new monitor on it!)

I didn't really want a laptop, incidentally. I know a lot of people love theirs, but I like playing at a desk. I have enough back and hip trouble without trying to play GuildWars on my lap.

I think I'm going to try plugging the old Dell in at the desk where the Compaq is, just to see what happens. I've already tried it in two different wall sockets, so I don't think that's the problem... but just in case. It's too late to cancel the new computer, even if it decided to work - but at least if it was to boot up, I could get my data off of it! (I have a save of everything crucial that's only 10 days old or so... but I would like to have some of the non-crucial things I didn't think of - like all my GW builds!)
