1. we got a 4-month-old puppy, 8lbs, boston terrier/chihuahua, black brindle, we named zilly. she's being isolated from our other dogs for now, so she's always either in my bedroom or outside. i think she loves me!

2. cuz i'm stuck in my bedroom so much, bro hooked up wireless internet for me — temporarily, but i'm all like 'yay!!' cuz he's always refused before.

3. i've written 116k words on my new story. it's super-fun!

yea.

once i get my money, i'm gonna buy this xbox 360 controller for windows so i can play fable easier. bro says he'll contribute if i let him use it sometimes. :)

us & mom went to the beach again yesterday! the water was like bathwater in by the shore. it was SO TOTALLY MUCH better than friday when there was an east wind. we had a great time.....but i ended up REALLY sunburned.

also dad FINALLY agreed on a laptop to buy. *grin* it was one that we saw monday and somehow bought tuesday night. it's super new and it only had good reviews and it had external reviews too. this is the one!

haha, now dad's more frustrated laptop shopping than us!! we went to best buy to look at their laptops and ^merrick was all: 'noooo, not that one, the touchpad is the wrong texture!' so now dad says we can't pick out one on the web cuz we won't know the touchpad texture! *laugh* so sometime we're gonna pick out one from the laptops we saw at best buy & GET IT! we liked a bunch of them anyway......

i HATE typing in normal 'correct' qwerty form. i say we can learn separately so i can keep typing the GOOD way & everybody else can type the new horrible way! but we co-run too much ^merrick says so we ALL gotta change our ways. GRAH!!

laptop on newegg says 'deactivated' AGAIN, so they might never have it in stock. but srsly i've been thinking maybe we don't REALLY need dedicated graphics. i thought maybe we'd play some video games, but the only one we haven't been bored of in a week is fable on xbox. not to mention — i see most of the laptops with dedicated graphics get reviews saying the motherboard screwed up CUZ OF the graphics card. integrated might be the way to go. i'll hafta tell dad, see what he says.

also i'm SO looking forward to getting the offspring's new album 'days go by'. i preordered it and it got shipped the day BEFORE it was released. anyways it's sposed to come on saturday but i bet it'll get here sooner.

i made pink lemonade ice cream pie tonight. i LOVE the ice cream with the yummy graham cracker crust. mmmmmm!

also, if they get back in stock, we MIGHT get this lenovo ideapad laptop. dad actually approves of something we found for once, but he's still shopping i guess!

we hung around downtown from 8:45am ~ 5:30pm today. got fasting bloodwork done, walked to get a bagel sandwich for lunch, sat in the park for hours reading & story-planning. my left upper arm got sunburned, but nothing else got burned. i dunno where i was sitting for that to happen.

8am is WAY too early for this body to wake up. it needs like 10+hrs of sleep. gonna wake up at 8am again tomorrow too. i wish we could MAKE the body fall asleep cuz it takes it like 45+mins.....unless i take ^merrick up to my bedroom and we snuggle. we fall asleep faster that way. SO FAR! *fingers crossed!*

we're not gonna finish camp nanowrimo this month. we got 36K yesterday, but i dunno how much more we're gonna write. we quit our novel in the middle and started on 'backstory bingo' with a card from [community profile] origfic_bingo. it's a lot of fun but it's slower going than novel writing.

laptop!

got fable 3 in the mail today. tried playing it on my laptop with the result of taking forever to install, driving me crazy logging in, then blue-screening twice, refusing to reboot normally twice, finally playing with terrible graphics....for about 10 mins till the laptop overheated and shut down. grah!!

finished drawing my how-we-work diagrams! then i scanned them. sadly i took the default settings and you can't even read my writing. okok, it's kinda ALREADY a challenge to read my writing, but srsly! i'm gonna scan them again when i have another chance to be inconspicuous. maybe while i'm waiting i'll fix up some of the drawings.

i just use diagrams to think — that's HOW i think, in pictures and diagrams — it's new that i've wanted to share them with other people. i really look at how terrible my handwriting is and how rough my drawings are. ha, i'm lucky if i can read my OWN handwriting. *wink*

if i had a better orange pen, i'd draw in orange. for now i'm sticking with PINK.

i found a website called lino & made a canvas about the system.

take a peek at all about us, right? :D

the home computers hooked up to printers are both b0rked. there are THINGS i wanna PRINT and i CAN'T print them. rumor has it dad's computer can be turned on but i srsly don't wanna go down there with my private docs to print them while he's watching. NO THANKS. *sighs*

i read someplace the built-in mic just doesn't work with ubuntu, DARNIT, and i can't get my input sound card to work with ubuntu either, so no mics there. (grahh!!) i gave in and booted into windows 7.

i bought a desk mic and a headset mic to try, but i can't get the headset to work AT ALL, and the desk mic took about 1hr of fiddling before i got it to record at a whisper at 100% volume / 40+ mic boost, and another 1hr before i got it to record at more reasonable settings. (ok, maybe that's a slight exaggeration....) i gave up after that. i'll figure out how to get rid of that static some other day.

mmmmm, i've got an idea for the vlog. i'm gonna go thru the [livejournal.com profile] multiplemonday meme questions and record all of them that fit our situation. and now that i have a plan, i've REALLY gotta make this work.

tomorrow i AM gonna find a way to make the built-in mic work with ubuntu. i got the webcam to work really well with VLC but it says /dev/audio* and /dev/dsp don't exist. gah! it's late now tho so i'm gonna try again tomorrow. fingers crossed!
