Let’s beat up some nerds.

November 29, 2007

Well, friends,

The day has finally come when I have the Internet, a new battery and power cord, and upgraded memory. It is a very happy day in my ibook’s life.

However, its been a very crappy day in my personal life.
I was so excited to have a day off of work, where I could just sit around and maybe do some cleaning or knitting or just watch TV, when some maintenance guys showed up and ruined my day. I told them that it wasn’t a good time, and I really needed twelve hours notice (it is state law, after all).
Its a long story, but it turns out the manager of the property management company that I rent from is a real jerk. He was exceptionally rude to me, and told me that since I wasn’t going to let the maintenance people in today, he wasn’t really sure if he would ever send somebody over to fix my heater (its been a long-running problem. I doubt it will ever be fixed). He said I could just “deal with it” until he felt like fixing it, which might not be ever.

So I’m really <i>really</i> crabby.

But anyway, let me see if I can share what I’ve been working on these past many weeks.

(Side note: Holy cow! I just uploaded nearly 100 pictures, and it took like… 2 minutes! iPhoto was like the slowest thing on my computer- until now!! Yay NEW MEMORY!)
