Total awesome to the extreme!  
Right now, I am writing this entry on my NEW COMPUTER! Oh my GOSH it is so exciting! I am making so many mistakes while typing due to the craziness of having a new keyboard to get used to!

So far windows vista hasn't been tooooooo annoying, but I do have a totally stupid amount of RAM and processing power (at least compared to my old baby, can you say, going from 256megabites of ram to 2 FUCKING GIGS plus 2.o gigahertz of processing speed???? MADNESS!). The glory of this is shown by the fact that currently I'm using firefox AND I'm uploading 4gigs of comics to my computer from disk at the same time a feat which my old baby would have just laughed at me if I'd tried to achieve. :/ Only down side so-far is that the image quality is slightly less than my old beasty but that's what you get for having cheap LCD. When I can afford it, I will get a new monitor... maybe...

Anyway, I think I'm getting sick or something... feel bloody rotten, but who cares?! I have a computer, and I think I'm going to spend a fair portion of the rest of the day playing with it and typing up some of all the fic I've been working on which I haven't been able to do on my computer in sooooo long. ^_^

(side note. Waaaaah, I have so many files to move over, it's going to take foreeeeeever. ;_;)

Wheee! Writing Bananza!  
I love it when my brain does this. I only wish it would be like this 70% of the time, instead of like, 1%.

Anyway, tho I have no fic to share right now, I must crow! Because not only did I get my homework done on time (I'm doing a summer paper on creative writing and I had to submit seven pages of typed poetry and song lyrics,) over the last week or so, I've done SOOOO much writing. I've in total now done 20 hand-written pages for DMT_06, my handwriting means that's around 4,000 words at a minimum or 200 per-page, PLUS I did seven pages of chapter 1 of one of my original fics! Wheeee!

The only downside is that those 4,000 words for DMT were supposed to take like, half that and I've still got three scenes to go, so it's going to be another long chapter ;_; *flaps*

Wat else? Well, the main thing that is ocupying my thoughts at the moment is that at some point soon, I MAY be buying a new computer. I feel bad because I know how hard my minako-chan has tried to keep up, but it's like she's got cancer or something, her insides are dying and she can't make _anything_ work properly any more. Because she is faithful (and firefox it a Nice program) Firefox is one of the few things that actually still work. Especially if I'm kind and make sure to give her plenty f time to think about it when I open and close. But, I mean, the wireless keeps dying, Word barely functions at ALL quite apart from the fact that it literally takes 10 minutes to open, I can't run two programs at the same time, (which means that I can't listen to music if I'm doing ANYTHING on the computer). And yeah, general angst. But man, if you are a discerning buyer, getting a new computer is expeeeensive, sheesh. And Vista is EVERYWHERE! I want to KILL IT! *hisses and spits at it*

Right, yes, that's all from my hood for a bit. Hope all are well.

P.S. I also love that I have a tag just for writing frenzies. That's fucking sweet and yet again proves to my why I should always love technology.
