So most of my apartment is cleared out. I have to go back for one more trip, but I'm hoping I can clear up some other things along the way, so that'll be cool.

I also FINALLY got around to playing that Watchmen video game for the cell phone because I'm that behind. Man, that had some bad dialogue. And I had to defeat the final boss (some guy with a bionic arm) twice because the game froze the first time and didn't show me the ending. And bionic arm guy was actually HARD. (Also hate the quicktime events) But ... eh, it was a nice distraction in between chores.

I'm also glad I have my own computer back, anyway. Can't use the Internet on it, but writing in notebooks really sucks so it'll be nice to have my own word program again.
Times like these I am so regretful I didn't make Laurie post taking Veidt's leg to the stomach, because that is how I feel right now.

Jesus Christ, the home computer is fucked. Windows Explorer won't work. Sometimes IE pops up every two minutes. Facebook won't work. Gmail chat won't work. Most webpages are slow. And my computer-fu is not so good but with Mom's only other options seem to be putting up with it or talking to my grandfather, who thinks the answer to every computer problem is either "defragment it" or "you didn't defragment it enough, so buy a new one."

[rocks back and forth in a ball on the floor] Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah ...

LIFE UPDATE!!! LIFE UPDATE!!! LIIIIIIIFE UPDATE!!! (Proceed to ignore me and work on your NaNoWriMo novels ... which I can't do ... waaah ...)

All righty. I've gotten a lot further on packing ... most of my living room is done, and I think after I get off the computer, today will be 1st strike cleaning in the kitchen ... part of me wonders if it's a waste, as I have a week where I'll be living in my new apartment but coming back to the old place to do some minor repairs here and there ... we'll see.

Biggest stumbling block was not being able to find a recycling center ... I'm not even sure they'll be open today, which means I'll probably be carting around the two-months old junk mail in the hatchback of my car for God knows how long ... and then I won't get to clean the car before the move which I REALLY, REALLY want to do. I'll try to look around anyway.

I told myself NO MORE DVDS UNTIL YOU FINISH YOUR OLD ONES ... but I broke it because I kept listening to Kevin Smith clips on YouTube and was like, "You know, I would LOVE to have him on talking while I'm cleaning." So I went out and finally bought An Evening with Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder. Already listened to the Toronto show last night. I liked it quite a bit. Internet geeks say London is funnier which is even better! :-D

I have a few entertainment pieces for myself too. For books I'm reading Angela's Ashes, The Portable Dorothy Parker, and the second and third Amazing Adventures of the Escapist comics. For DVDs I had out Serial Experiments Lain (which I already finished), Noir (which I won't get to), Slayers Try and Lucky Star. I wonder if I'm not really into Slayers as much as I thought I was. I mean ... I LIKE it and it makes me smile even on the 20th "Wai! Lina and Gourry eat so much!" joke. Plus, Lina Inverse is an overall fun anime female. But I find Lucky Star more compelling, despite the fact that Slayers is kind of an anime "classic" to my "generation" of anime fans.

(And ... meh, I KNOW I won't get to buy the Lucky Star DVDs for so long, so I'm still kind of bummed that I'll only get to see up to episode 19. Oh well, hopefully the wait will seem shorter than I thought. (Genshiken is already out, for instance.))

But yeah ... so I'll be cleaning. As soon as I pull myself away from this. Come on, quietprofanity ... you don't need to read the about the hair racists on fandom_wank. Urgh ... Urgh ... URGHHHHHHHH!!!!


Okay, better get to work.
