Damned Fool Girl, There She Goes


You gave me the stars in a wineglass
Like some errant fool, I let them fall:
One by one. A piece of me.
A piece of you.
The world in a handful of sky
And I dropped it all, lost it forever.

--26th Jan. 2009

Oh, and on top of that I screwed up my laptop settings apparently. It's a -wonderful- first day of Chinese New Year all right.

Dead Computer Blues

The phrase 'it never rains but pours' isn't particularly something that figures in my vocabulary but of late I've had to admit it's held noxiously true. Progression of this evolution of thought follows as below:

1) 3 months ago, my computer, Catalina de los Angeles, started freezing up and locking for no good reason.

2) Opened up CPU, cleaned dust out.

3) Freezing and locking up became worse.

4) Repeat step 3.

5) Spontaneous rebooting starts taking place alongside freezing and locking up.

6) Fatal computer death.

7) 5 days of computer deprivation.

8) Catalina sent for repairs.

9) Catalina brought back for testing.

And now she seems to be working just fine...and I've got a new laptop in the bargain! So. Either way, taking some time to catch up. If I haven't emailed or replied to anyone yet, I will, just need a few days.
