And congrats on the black wootqube. And yeah it's going to be a sweet lappy, especially because it's not a macbook (because it will actually run the programs I need, woo!). ^_~



talk to the hand :P MacBooks rock. all the good programs run on it. Sure, at 300dpi GIMP runs slowly, but it doesn't crash. I just need more RAM (1g now)

I am faaar too attached to my MacBook. Admittedly, I've been off and on bedrest for the past 2 1/2 years, so without a laptop I'm incommunicado.

You'll be able to get sweet accessories in Japan tho, I am in lust for a sushi USB drive

I agree with Webfoot - the Dogma guys rock (even if I can't remember their names....

Has the rejectionator always been snarky? Rejected because: Not PG-13, jerkface.

and ugh on people posting nastiness, then going back and editing it before they can be probated.

OK, time for some more fresh air. I spent money here and for birthday party invitations for my almost-10, and I'm avoiding work. Best to avoid work out in the sunshine. Maybe dog with UTI will perk up outside.

They got their own movie and people still don't know Jay and his hetero-life-mate Silent Bob?

dang, now I know it!

sorry.

I do have an excuse - other than the part where I rarely watch movies - I am on a bunch of meds 'cos of chronic pain, and as a result of either the meds or the chronic pain, my memory is wretched. My almost-10 reminds me of things. I can commiserate with my grandmothers about forgetting things. Always a good thing.

When I was severely ill, I went through a similar ordeal with meds.
Ultimately, the side effects did not outweigh the benefits (for me).

Remembering isn't always all that fun anyways. For instance, everytime I see an ad or box cover for Margo at the Wedding I remember how awful that movie was. I'd rather forget that I ever watched it.

By the way... if you can forgive or tolerate a movie that features full frontal male nudity, Forgetting Sarah Marshall was hilarious.

I hope you're feeling OK now! and yeah, I've been re-evaluating a lot lately. Especially since my friend's son has problems that overlap mine a bit.

I've got a long list - including muscle spasms vs memory probs and sense of balance vs pain/numbness in fingers/toes. right now I've got to be on the meds if I am going to deal with feeding the family and taking care of the kids. (I don't forget lunches or anything). I'd love a month off to wean off the meds and see where I am baseline. but, um, then I'd be in more pain.

um, back to sweetness and light... I need to remember how to defrost meat without a microwave...

heh - I can never forget the stuff I want to forget. sadly.

I'll have to add that to my Netflix queue. I'm all for male nudity. I'll just have to watch it when the kiddos are asleep!

work shmork. they shouldn't make you use programs you can't use on a Mac. ;) My husband is the IT guy for an all-Mac company, and he has just a couple PCs attached to scientific equipment. Sadly, not everything is Mac-compatible. yet.

Your new laptop sounds sweet! The speed should make designs easier.

I think I broke my toe today. It's all puffy, swollen, and hurting. yippeee!

Ugh,, I broke my toe when I was taking son's bowling ball off the couch and it slipped.
We don't wear shoes in the house. Thank goodness the kids were in HS at the time. That was a really long, loud, string of curse words!
It is so unrewarding. Not even a cast. Just a elevate, ice and don't walk on it.

I still say he broke the toe. Bowling orbs DO NOT belong on furniture!

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

I broke my big toe when I was in middle school - but I couldn't tell anyone because I did it while sneaking out of my bedroom when I was grounded. Was going to be awfully hard to explain how I dropped a brick on my toe when I was supposed to be cleaning my room. After a few days of hobbling around my dad finally got the truth out of me and he thought the pain I had been in was enough of a punishment that I didn't get grounded for even longer.

A lot of things I saw in Japan were apparently West Coast (or generally non-Midwest) places. Coco's (Koko's? Only saw it in Japanese.), Lawson's, Circle K, etc. Never heard of them until Japan.

yep they have a website

I'm more familiar with circle-k as a Kosher designation, but then I'm on the East Coast, and use Kosher labels to help with food allergies.

My toe still hurts. i'm going to hope it's better in the morning. 'Cos I'm taking 5 kids roller skating tomorrow. I'm brilliant.

Leopard has true dual boot (BootCamp). You can boot in a Windows environment if you want. You just have to buy the full version of Vista (~$290). We just bought some in our school district.

Hi folks.

Here's the lurker design. Not going to submit it to this week's derby, since it's lacking in movement and therefore would probably get rejected. But I thought I'd share... Comments and suggestions appreciated. Obviously it's missing the text bubbles that would so totally make this design.
