Catch up, catch-all

After my last post I decided that I needed to get a plan of action to help me get out of my doldrumarific state.  This plan included a lot of Getting A Grip and Sucking It Up.  Also employed: Trolling the Nets.  I turned to that great haven of treasure, Craigslist, and almost immediately stumbled upon a fairly legitimate looking listing for a used Macbook.  After a few emails back and forth, in which I 1.) haggled 2.) begged and 3.) attempted to barter with baked goods, a deal was struck, and it was confirmed that I was indeed less than 24 hours away from having a computer of my very own for the first time in my life. L picked it up downtown the next day and sent me the best text I’ve received in a month of Sundays: “I got you a computer.”

And so!  Here I sit typing on my gently-used Macbook!  Look at me go!  TYPETYPETYPETYPETYPE. (Caps lock key was the first thing I inspected upon purchase.) Huzzah for Grip Getting and It Up Sucking!

I have downloaded a few pictures that I took after my computer died but before my camera died, so here, in grand dump truck fashion, I will post some of them in disjointed manner.

Hurricane Rosie (who is spending more time upright these days) is frequently too quick to be caught on film, but the aftermath tells the story:


However, she will be still enough to watch with adoration her v. fave person in the whole world:

With the arrival of colder weather comes new, massively large, holy-cow-how-am-I-buying-clothes-this-size-for-someone-I-birthed pajamas:


I’m not one to point fingers, but let’s just say there is a reason that the floor looks this way and it has a whole lot to do with the middle and top corner of the right side of this picture.

My kingdom for a Roomba

We likes us some books ’round these parts:

And while my camera is away, I can always use my handy new webcam to show you important things like the result of the occasion of getting my hairs did while under the influence:

Short-haired upward sky-looking

Hairs did

Ok! Now that we’re up to speed, it’s time to get back to normal. PREPARE YOURSELVES.
