Gone Already?

Wow. This has been a very short week. I’m sure it doesn’t feel that way to my poor Sam, but it does to me. That’s what hap­pens when you sleep through most of it, I sup­pose. I’ve avoided acknowl­edg­ing the pos­si­bil­ity that Katie AND I have mono, but I have the same symp­toms she does, and nei­ther of us are get­ting any better.

My dreams are increas­ingly weird. I have to think that I’ve slept so much that my brain is done with ordi­nary pro­cess­ing, so now it’s dredg­ing up All That Weird Shit. Increased hyp­n­a­gogic episodes, oh joy. I hate those!

New Secret Pleasure

Dex­ter. Katie bor­rowed the first sea­son DVDs from her boyfriend and we started watch­ing them today. Now I don’t want to stop.

It’s a very Scor­pio series.

Laptop Research & Shopping

Sam and I spent most of our date time look­ing at lap­tops. Yes, we’re finally replac­ing the one that died last sum­mer. Yay!

I find it eas­ier to put what I find online in con­text after hav­ing actu­ally played with a bunch of machines tonight, so I’ll be doing a lot of research online.

Any­body have any strong rec­om­men­da­tions or good/​bad expe­ri­ences to share? Knowl­edge of any places that give “edu­ca­tional dis­counts” that aren’t just “steer your stu­dents to us and we’ll give you a lit­tle lower price on your own machines” deals? Sure expe­ri­ence exor­cis­ing Vista from a “Vista-​​compatible” PC? Please speak up!

Lunar Eclipse

Dur­ing our date, Sam and I saw the full moon, then part of the lunar eclipse. Gor­geous! Katie and her fella are out moon-​​gazing and tak­ing pho­tos.
