I feel relief.
This is me tonight from my brand new laptop computer. I'm sorry to disappoint all the Mac people out there. I like Macs a lot, but because of the already expensive software we use for our architecture work and its compatibility, we had to stick with a PC for now. I'm excited to have a computer at home now. This is the first post I'm doing from it and I hope it is just what this blog needs to rescue it from its lackluster quality as of late. Thankfully, the computer guy who helps us out was able to salvage the files from the ailing desktop, so I can breathe a little knowing I don't have to fuck around trying to reacquire all my music, photos, and videos. It's been a tense few days and a testament to how reliant I am on my computer.
Tonight has been a nice break from all the tension. First, Megan and I watched the season finale of Beauty And The Geek. The show is a nice mix of people showing genuine human kindness and reality-show cheesiness and conflict. The finale was no exception. I know some of you may consider the fact that I watch something like this a character flaw, but I make no apologies. Those of you who read my list of TV shows know that I'm beyond hope anyway.

Then I saw my brother pop up on my IM thing. He has a webcam and now I do, too. It was a good chance to make stupid faces at each other:
I know I haven't been leaving a lot of comments under your blog-trees lately, but I am reading all of it. Hopefully now that I have this baby, I'll be more in the loop. You guys make my day!
