Yes, folks, he's ded. He *might* be fixable, but I'm not about to shell out of a hazy maybe. Plus I'm hoping to get a new laptop this summer.

Sigh. My poor, darling Edgar. At least I made backups. And the hard drive is still in tact, so I could still get stuff off of it if I had to.

So, who wants to give me money to get a new one?

In other news: Gender Bender this weekend! Wheeee! School's almost over, I still don't have a job.

Edgar is dying. This time he really, really is. He won't turn on. Not easily, anyway, it took me like, twenty minutes to get onto my desktop, where I immediately made backups of EVERYTHING, then made second backups for the really important stuff. *cries* I'm bringing him into the school tech guys tomorrow (who don't actually do much of anything most of the time from my experience) and hope they can fix him, and if they can't I'll have to go to Dawson's, which will be expensive, and I don't have a job yet, but I don't really have time to look for a job because I didn't do anything yesterday and now I have to do a ton of work today *hyperventalates* *cries*

I've figured out how to do wireless printing at school. Go me. 
Edgar is still slow. Incredibly, incredibly slow. He's probably full of malware. However, I really can't do without him until the end of the semester, then maybe I'll just get him completely wiped and start over. Which will mean I'll be burning a lot of CDs. Ah, well, it has to be done. It takes at least five or ten minutes for him to get warmed up. I should really just get a new computer, and I've been thinking about it, but I have this silly nostalgia and I really don't want to put him away. He does work; he's just slow. And I don't know anyone who would want him if I got a new computer, and just putting him away or throwing him out makes me sad. I want someone to get some use out of him.
Anyway, GRST midterm tomorrow, then working on HTST paper for a week and a half. Sue Johanson tomorrow, concert on Friday, Coronet on Saturday. This is actually a good weekend to be busy because the paper is all I have to do. Maybe there'll be some religion experts at Coronet who can help me figure out what to write my paper on. That'd be nice.
I may even have some time for sewing this week. And I plan to reverse engeneer a pair of pants I have to create a pattern. They're wrap pants and probably pretty simple. It's not like they have to fit or something. Anyway, that's what I'm gonna make with some of my sari fabric. I need to hurry up and figure out what I'm going to use that stuff for so I can start on my Elizabethan gown. I wants it, precious!

So neither of the printers in my house are working. Still. I even tried hooking up the family computer to Edgar, who apparently didn't detect the frickin' printer. GAH! They used to work! What the hell has changed? Anyway, I wanted to scan the drawings of how I want to cut my hair so you all can tell me whether I should go for it or if I'm a complete dumbass and should keep my hair the way it is. But I can't. Because the printers hate me. I'm going to have to call Dell and Lexmark and ask them why your farging printers won't work. AAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHH!
I just realized I've spent the whole afternoon trying to get computers/printers to work and drawing my new hair cut. I meant to study today. I really did. But now I have to go to my stupid Creative Writing course in half an hour because my brother is at rehersal and therefore can't drive me. Because he sucks. Big time.
So, since I can't scan my drawings I'll link my inspiration instead.
Saint (beware teh lesbian SEX!)

Because symmitry is for wusses. And Straight people, apparently.

Wheee!

Free coffee! Sweetness. I was just sitting here, minding my own business, when the coffee girl came and gave me a sample cup of iced cappichino. Mwaha. Because I really need caffine an hour before I go to class. Where I have to sit still and talk about Edgar Allen Poe.
Is it wierd to fangirl someone whose been dead for, like, a hundred years? Probably.
Song still stuck in my head. joy of joys. oh well. I haven't gotten completely tired of it yet.
Oh, and I've also decided to tell my mom I'm not as straight as she previously thought. But only if the topic comes up in conversation. Uh-huh *nods*
So, here's my day today:
2:00-3:00pm Humanities, talking 'bout Poe. (Shoulda brought my action figure! Damn!)
3:00- 3:15? Doctor, to check if my thrush is gone yet.
3:15?-4:15? Pick up hold from the library, get blood drawn.
5ish- go to Sade's and teach her how to make pita pizzas. Get back home in time for quality time with mom before Jo gets back from work.

Hrm. Also need to figure out how to get to Rosemont, and how early I have to get up in order to make it there by 9 tomorrow morning. Maybe I'll just wake Jo up early and make him drive me. Because he'd really appreciate that.

Yay! Swing!

I should work on one of my many essays now, but I kinda don't want to. Sunday afternoon. I WILL get my English re-write done. And hopefully start my final Humanities essay. Because I don't have to read anything new for either of them. I've also got to decide what to write about for my English essay and finish the ethnography for Anthropology so I can write about that too. Crap, I forgot to do my 300 words, but there's not enough time now. Oh well.

But I can do it! Because I have Edgar back!

I probably shouldn't mention to my hum class I named my laptop after Poe. They might think I'm wierd.

Then again I did tell them I'd memorized the Raven, and that my version we slightly different from the one Prof. M handed out.

Oh, and Janine, Sade decided we should go out on a date. She suggested mini-golf. Apparently her and Josh never do anything and she wants to live through us. Although I think mini-golf is stupid. What do you think?

Yay for long journal entries!

Y'know, according to the posters in the doctor's office a symptom of excessive anxiety is over reacting when startled. But I always do. When the coffee girl gave me coffee I practically jumped out of my chair. But I don't think I'm particulairly anxious. Not being able to hold still is, apparently, another symptom. But again, I'm pretty sure I'm not anxious. Bipolar, maybe, ADD almost definitely. I hope my thrush has gone away. Everyone keep their fingers crossed for me.

AGH! what'm I gonna wear to the workshop????

Oh, and now I'm all excited about trying out for Canada's next top Model next season. I seriously doubt I'll get in, but it would be super-fun.

Hrm. I wonder if I'll have enough time to do my nails tonight? I feel like going borderline goth. Or at least wear darker colors than normal. Maybe. Fishnets? That'd be fun. Hrm. It's foggy out again. I like it, it makes the world feel more magical.

and lookit what I found! 
Apparently I'm also a Journalist, wedding planner and budget assistant.

Isn't it wierd how people seem to dissapear off the face of the earth? I was reading this really wonderful story on fictionpress and it just stopped. I poked around, searching the author's name and checking his blog and there's nothing. But I'm guessing he's still alive because the the story was only updated about a month ago. And yet he's got no blog entries from any later than 2003, and the few pages google turned up had all been shut down, moved, whatever. So he's dissapeared.

If I died would you guys notice? I'm guessing not. You'd just think I packed up my bags and abandoned the internet, except for the few of you that I know in real life.

Oh! Yes! The Purolator guy just came by and I have Edgar back! Yay, new adaptor that works! YESYESYESYESYESYESYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! I should go do that English paper re-write now. YES! *happy dance!*

Woot!

It's official: I'm registered for (part of) the swingdance weekend workshop! All day Saturday and one class Sunday, all for $61. Thank you, once again, uncle Ralph. I get to learn balboa. And how to do Charlston by myself.

So much for having money next year for books and stuff. Oh well, who needs books anyway?

In other news, still don't have my new power cord. Decided to go home during my break today to work on my essay. So far I'm not sure if it's actually an essay or me rambling on about why stories are good. But oh well. Still have an hour and a half before I have to go back to school. I'm sure I can make a point by then.

Also: McCain over fries suck. Don't even bother.

Sigh

I feel so naked without my darling Edgar. I should be writing an essay right now, but I'll do it tomorrow. I'm going to come home during my break and work on it. I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do, so two hours should be plenty. If not I can finish it up on Wendsday.

Today when I was in the loft Robert and Heather sat down with me, but it was really cuz they wanted to share the couch rather than my company. They talked about business school type stuff for a while then left.

Janine brought up the whole Quest for the Crop thing the other day. Maybe we can go the weekend after next, because next weekend is Sade's birthday extravaganza. Yay karioke!
