+1 yummy. I've had my Dell Mini 9 running a variety of Linux flavors for four something years, and I still use it almost daily. I had to replace the battery, but that's about it.

+1 yummy again- i have an Asus and also a HP mini- both are 4yo now (no linux, sadly, but i am too old a dog to learn that trick)-- they were super cheap, cost me under 250 each, and continue to be reliable.
i have a 1Tb external drive i got for real cheap- maybe 79?
I have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that a computer is not supposed to last forever (although in my whole life i've only had one shiitake the bed, all the rest i sold or were stolen....) and while i know they're only engineered to last 18 months [or whatever] I am always so relieved to have computers last several years.

I'll never buy another HP again. I just bought my husband a Clevo based notebook so I'm hopeful. Asus and MSI were in the running but the Asus I wanted had a hinge weakness and if we ever have to duct tape another laptop I'll scream.

If anyone wants a 3 year old 14" Sony that needs a new HD, No OS and has a loose power adapter connector (it works as long as you find the right angle or A Sony store will fix it for $100 or so), let me know. I also have a 3 your old 13" MacBook (not Pro, this was probably the 2nd to last version they sold) that runs like a champ. The touchpad is a little dirty but that is all that is wrong. I need to figure out how to donate them or something or if a ppker is interested, I'd be happy to let them go.

My cats do not care if I sleep as a long as I pay attention to them when they want me to. They say, "Fork you. We're cats." There is no escape.

My cat only ever wants to cuddle when I'm trying to get out of bed. I had the flat to myself for 3 nights (he's not allowed to sleep on the bed when Mike is home) and he didn't come in to the bedroom until this morning (Mike came home this afternoon). As I was trying to get out of bed to feed him, he flopped down beside me and started being super cute. I had to get out of the bed on Mike's side.

I had my first travel anxiety dream last night - it was 9.15 and I had to catch a train at 9.30, and I wasn't dressed and hadn't packed. I asked my mom to call a taxi to take me to the station, and though I somehow managed to dress and pack in time, my mom hadn't bothered calling the taxi. It was so bad it woke me up. The funny thing is that I'm not taking any trains from where my parents stay.

This is the story of my life. Like last night, I came home and was about to make dinner, and then I saw my cats sporking on the floor so I laid on the floor to join them.

ETA: ahaha the filter makes that seem really perverse

I have to go to the evening part of a wedding tonight. My parents are going to be at it. Absolutely dreading it. I've felt sick all day because of it and I just want to sleep.

A half-dozen emails later, my next semester is (mostly) sorted out, and my graduation paperwork is in. I don't even know what to do with myself.

Go Brian!

Although I have a sucky cold (note to self, don't go outside for 4 hours in the cold without a proper jacket/gloves and play with kids that are coughing/sneezing), I feel pretty good mentally. I may even leave the house today. Maybe.

I just discovered that, if I don't get accepted into vet school this year, I can graduate next year with both a BSc in Biology and a BA in Religious Studies (my current minor), at the same time I would graduate with just the BSc. I think probably I should definitely do this.

i chose to postpone my application to vet school and spend a summer taking the few extra classes i needed in order to get my second bachelor's. i don't know whether having the two degrees has been useful to me at all, but i'm glad i took the extra time, because it helped me realize i didn't actually want to go to veterinary school.

I don't know what I want to make for dinner. My heart and my stomach are saying "pancakes", but my brain is reminding me that I basically had two lunches (a co-worker went out for sausage rolls and I got one with Linda Mac sausages). Then again, I am on holiday. Hmm.

SO I need everyone to know about how amazing of a friend & roommate my BFF is. I feel so lucky to have found such a perfect match.

Whenever we think we smell bad or have B.O., we smell each other's armpits.

This sounds crazy, and it probably is, but it fills me with delight and there's always giggles, and we then "argue" about who smells worse. I've always wanted someone in my life who would actually accept the invitation to smell my armpits. I used to ask my ex all the time and it would annoy him so much!

Luv.

I've been wanting chocolate cake for days and finally baked one tonight, but the spicy satay I had for dinner has given me a stomach ache so I won't be eating cake today.

Do you think Petraeus and his biographer named the book "All In" as a secret sex joke? Because seriously, it makes me giggle and then gag.

I dated someone with a massive cork and literally that was what it was like "Is it all in?" "Um, no, there's still about 6 inches I can't fit." Big dicks. I tell you.

Amos is so silly. His food and water bowls are on a placemat in the kitchen. When he wants me to fill the food dish, he bangs it around. When he wants me to fill the water dish, he goes upstairs to my bedroom and barks for me to come upstairs and give him water out of a mug on my nightstand. Even though every single time he does this, I fill up his water dish and whistle for him to come back downstairs. Silly puppy, just learn to bang your water dish around too!

Maybe he knows you both drink the same thing, so he likes the social aspect of sharing?

Molly (all the birds, actually) always prefers to drink from somene's glass, even if hers is fresher. The cockatiel has a bowl of water on the coffee table in her little eating area, but almost always goes for someone's drinking glass nearby. They just like to share.

Correction: they like to share other people's stuff; not their own.

okay so I promise that everything I post will stop being about being sad all the time soon, but I'm currently in philly for a friend/my best friend's brother's funeral and I've been spending a lot of time with her and the family as part of the support crew and it is just breaking my heart every second.

It is going to suck for so long. I love these people and they are in so much pain.
I wish I could do more.
