I finally dragged my comforter (and whatever else would fit in my mondo suitcase) around the corner to the laundromat, with the result that a couple of hours later, I had clean bedding. Very happy that makes me.
In the meantime, I got to watch the evening news, TMZ, and Cops. I'm still trying to figure out which one provided the more useful and accurate information.
Then home, where I did another two loads of general laundry (I have pants and underwear! Woo-hoo!), and fiddled with photos.
Fiddling being as far as I got. My laptop is not happy with the card I've got for the camera, and would only load about half the images (The earlier half) before declaring the other half to be corrupt. The karaoke system would read them just fine, but didn't have the photo editing software. In the end, I FTPed them from that system to my ISP, then FTPed them back to the laptop.
But by that time, it was heading towards midnight, and both timenchanter and I were hungry. He verified that TGIFriday's was open until 1:00am, so we rushed over there - convincing supersniffles to join us in the process.
And a fine dinner was had by all.
Then we made our way to Cindi's, picking up Fawkes on the way. I had a motherboard and processor to install.
That took until 5:00am, in large part because they decided to watch Nightbreed while I was working, which meant I didn't get all that much work done. I get much too involved with video.
But hey, now I've seen at least most of Nightbreed. Cool movie.
The distraction might have something to do with the fact that the stupid fricking thing still doesn't work. I of course triple-checked everything as I put the system together, but the fact of the matter is that while the power comes on (and stays on), it doesn't do anything. Not even a POST beep. Now that I'm awake, there are a number of things I want to try - but that'll just have to wait until next time, which will probably be tomorrow night.
Then home and, eventually, sleep. Very eventually.
I've been up now for a little bit. The good news is that I just got a shipment of discs. It's mostly fill-in stuff, but there's also a few new songs. I'll have all that entered by tomorrow night.
In the meantime, I really need to get up...
