Well, back to the smithy to repair my computer again. Woke up on Tuesday to discover that the system was corrupted, and couldn't be repaired. Thankfully, I have an external hard drive backing up the most vital of items. Now just to set aside the x number of hours to bring it back to the shape and feel from before. Fortunately, lappie will keep me entertained, and I can write a journal entry while I swap disks.

Speaking of smacking things that are broken - they're blasting next door to my office every few days. It's pretty entertaining.... every time they go to detonate, there's a waring horn about 20 minutes prior, then 10, then a manic honking... silence for about a minute and then a building-shaking *KA-THOOM*. I'm a big fan of the *KA-THOOM*.
We haven't exchanged gifts with our neighbors yet - well, halfway. Mandy drew a picture of our house, and gave it to us at the new year's party... we still are behind on bringing loot over to them... Schedules, sickness and whatnot on both sides have caused delays.
This past weekend, BHK and SW went with me to the Lego store... I benefitted greatly from that trip - got a Police command center for $20 (usually $45),
A few mystery minifigs - mine were:
- Man in Gorilla Suit w/ Banana
- Alien w/ Blaster
- Cyborg w/ Blaster
- Farmer w/Pig, Dog & Fruit Stand
SW got an aviator, an elf archer, snowboarder, Tribal Chief and some miscellany. BHK picked most of her loot at B&N - notebooks and folders and magnets.
I've activated my goodreads account - I've added a few friends that I know on there - if I missed someone, hopefully they'll find me. primarily tracking the books I read on my kindle, but more so the self-challenge of 52 books in a year.
