This is really trippy, you guys.  
By "this," I mean, "I am on another computer, because my computer sucks like a black hole."

I am on eltea's old computer, in fact, which is a Mac. Which is trippy. Just. Things are in different places and stuff. XD

We had nothing but Macs at all my schools back in the day, and I practically live with eltea a lot of the time, so it's not like this is a completely new thing, but it's just WEIRD to be doing all my Regular Old Me Stuff on a computer that does not seem like a Regular Old Me thing. XD

It's just weird. Trust me. XD'

Umm, yesterday, I learned how to say "How are you?" in Swedish a couple different ways, and then I learned that acting is a metaphysical distillation of You-ness, and we're all in this together in a technological world that is increasingly about hiding behind screens and not being truly vulnerable and baring ourselves (okay, it wasn't quite that bad, but it sounds like this dude is going to make us work our asses off, which is kind of what I signed up for, but eek nonetheless XD'). A girl in Th11 who's from Australia has an accent that sounds a lot like jenwryn's, though, and it just makes me happy in the littlest, silliest way. ♥

Uhhh. Then I slaved over my Swedish homework and battled online dictionaries for pretty much a million years, because it's hard to fill pronouns into the blanks unless you've got the basic gist of the sentence, and I don't know any words. XD

And then at about nine-thirty or something, my computer started crashing and crashing and crashing and... well, the hell with that. It's been lucky so far in that rescuing files is really, really easy booting it up in safe mode, so today, since eltea was going to visit anyway, she brought me her old laptop and a nice USB stick, and I just moved over all the shit I've been working on and might need in the immediate future.

And then we wandered around forEVER looking through different thrift stores and having no luck whatsoever as far as Halloween costume-like items. XD' At least we got good food and an endless walk out of it. Then we hung out a bit more and talked about the physics required to simulate gravity on a space station. Or she did, and I nodded and looked at the nice diagrams and went O___o a bit and was generally in awe of eltea's ability to understand material that didn't even quite make sense to me while I was taking AP Physics in the eleventh grade. XD'

But yes. I wish everybody had an eltea, really. I think the world would be a much nicer place.

Pff, my world would pretty much crash, burn, and collapse if it wasn't for her, and that's the story of things. :)

Ummmmmm... yes. I've finally finished with that damn attack bunny, but only very first-draftally. Lots of it's still on paper, for heaven's sake, from writing the end last night. What's PAPER? XD

Oh, yeah, it's that thing I also started the final chapter of "Chocolate" on this morning. XD God, I'm so tired; maybe I'll cop out (GEDDIT) and type that up tomorrow. XD'

*ded*

*but good ded*

*also probably going to be converted to a Mac person, sorry Friends of the PC; hot damn this thing is so shiny and intuitive, haha XD*

*also IBM YOU HAVE FAILED ME FOR THE LAST TIME*

*also BERKELEY YOU'RE A STUPIDLY THRIFTY TOWN WHY DO ALL YOUR THRIFT STORES FAIL AS MUCH AS IBM*

...yes, I'm going. Hopefully to bed, very soon. XD

"Let the Right One In" is very existential vampirism... the book even more so, which I didn't like but loved the essential themes explored such as eternity, needing someone who ultimately was destined to let you down, and the monsters that inhabit all people.

That does sound interesting! :D

The boy and girl perform fantastically amazing.

I used to have that problem a LOT -- I'd be using the Mac in Journalism last class of the day, and then I'd go home and turn on my PC and be like, "wtf?" XD

Swedish isn't as bad as I expected -- it's just hard to be two days into a language and feel, from so many years of French, like I should know things that I just don't. XD I run in English, and I walk along well enough in French, but Swedish is like army-crawling on the floor, and I haven't even figured out how to pull up on the couch. XD

I heard that was really good! I'll have to check it out under the guise of studying! 8D

I think they should mass-produce them, honestly. XD''

Macs deserve more love and anytime you wish to binge-hate on PCs you can count me in.

As for having an eltea... why yes, please, I'll take one! Which after receiving my package from that girl... ahhhhh...mahhhh...zzzzing! I've never received something so utterly inspired in this fandom as that. So if she happens to be reading your comments... thank you!
Eltea: Sunflowerseltea on August 31st, 2009 02:01 am (UTC)
Haha, you know me extremely well; I’m definitely reading tierfal’s comments. XD

I’m so glad it arrived and that you like it!! :DDDD It was super-fun to make and put together. 8D ♥
Vitamin C: Matt - Wantedtierfal on August 31st, 2009 04:10 am (UTC)
Haha, hooray! XD I'm sure there'll be much more hating this weekend, when I get my stepdad to take a look at my stupid not-working machine. XD

I squealed when she told me what she was planning, and then WAY more when I saw it for reals! :D

Bwaha, WELL Y'KNOW. 8D

I'm such an Aussie fangirl. :3 I blame this almost entirely on you. ♥

IKR. Cannot live without. 8D

And hahaha. We tend to scare people when we start getting excited about stuff. XDDD

ORLY. /even more intrigued, trufax. XD

Pshh, stuff isn't as fun when it's unambiguous, sometimes more than was intended, y/y? :D

I love Macs because they're pretty. XD I find them more fun and all to use but they do get their own little riffs, which annoy me. XD I'll never go back to PCs though....^^;;

Oh well, nothing's perfect. >___>

Heh, languages are so much easier to pick up when you're a kid. XD WHY OH WHY CAN'T WE GO BACK??? Good luck with Swedish, darlin'. ;)

And eep! Brighton has tonnes of thrift stores but sometimes I wonder WHY THE HELL they're called thrift stores when they can be so damn expensive!!!! D8 So I understand your pain. *nod nod*

*smacks thrift stores*

*and IBM*
Vitamin C: Jethrotierfal on September 1st, 2009 01:19 am (UTC)
IT IS A LEGITIMATE REASON imo. XD And yeah, I tend to stick with PCs mostly for sentimental reasons, if I'm honest with myself. XD If I can get Microsoft Word on this sucker -- which I'm pretty sure I can one way or another, since the ones at school had it back in the day -- I'll be totally converted, because really the only thing I don't like right now is the fact that I don't have a good word processor. And that's partly because I just haven't got Pages figured out. XD'

/way more than you needed to know XD

SRS. Old dog here, lol. XD

Ours are actually not TOO bad as far as price, generally speaking... they just didn't have any of the very specific things we wanted, the bastards! XD

Macs ftw. I love my Mac so hard. <33333

Ahh, I want to go thrift shopping. I love thrift stores. :333

Learning Swedish must be seriously interesting. :O

I am loving this one, haha. XD Someday sooner than I think I may get one of my-truly-very-own, and I will stroke it and pet it and... generally be a total freak. XD

ME TOO. Especially all the weird and random and Who the Hell Thought It Would Be Cool to Manufacture This?! stuff you find. XD

It's very odd, but I'm sort of liking it so far. I think. It's hard to tell when you're completely brained-out from the rest of the day. XD'
