Book update - December 2007
Books I read this month:
SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES by Ray Bradbury - Enjoyed it.
THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE by Shirley Jackson - Way different from The Haunting movie that came out a few years ago. Enjoyed it.
Books I’m currently reading:
1984 by George Orwell

So, I’ve mostly got my mp3s straightened out.
I’ve probably overlooked some duplicates, but for the most part, it looks okay.
I actually went and bought CDs today. Not one, not two, but THREE. Yes, I bought three CDs. Me, who never buys CDs for herself. And only one of them was used. The other two were new. Basically, because I couldn’t find the other two used anywhere. They are just that good. These are the first new CDs I have bought since…well, actually I bought that Puddle of Mudd CD a couple weeks ago….but before that, it was a really long time! Like almost a year. They really need to be cheaper. I would buy more CDs more often if they were like $10 or under. The two I bought today were $16 and $17. Such robbery.
Anyway, I finished reading Odd Thomas last night. Wow. I don’t want to spoil the ending, so I will just say: Wow. Read it. If only my text books were this interesting, I might actually get around to buying them.

So, it’s 2004.
I woke up this morning and the electricity was out. It stayed off for awhile, then came on long enough for me to make some scrambled eggs and toast and then went off again. It was sometime after noon when it finally came on and stayed that way.
TiVo is doing good. In addition to it taping my favorite shows and movies with my favorite actors, I now have it taping talk shows that my favorite bands and singers appear on. Puddle of Mudd was on a rerun of Mad TV today.
The PC Linux OS is doing better. I dunno what was up the first time I ran it, but when I did ‘df’ it said it was 100% full. Now it says like 42%. So I can save things now. Which is cool. I haven’t tried USB again. I didn’t mess with it much before since I couldn’t save anything anyway.
I decided to read “Lord of the Rings.” Well, I started with “The Hobbit” actually. I am on chapter three of “Fellowship of the Ring” right now.
New semester starts in a week and a half.

Well, I lost this post the first time I wrote it, so hopefully I can remember everything.
I went and saw “Return of the King” last night. It was very good, the best of the three, I think.
I love my new phone. I was sending IMs during the intermission of the movie with it. Hehe.
I got my grades. Well, all but one. My math 300 grade isn’t up. Dunno what is up with that. I didn’t do that great this semester, but I did pass everything (assuming I passed math 300, that is). Next semester will be better.
I just finished reading “The Joy of Linux.” It was a good read, very funny at times, as well as informative. I highly recommend it to everyone, whether you use Linux or not.
And some good news: I got all the stuff I wanted off my desktop hard drives yesterday. So when my new hard drive for Tera comes in, she will only be missing a couple months worth of stuff. So yeah, that screenshot I posted a couple weeks ago of my Linux partition: it doesn’t really look like that. I was able to get stuff off without any problems whatsoever. So the problem is definitely not the hard drives themselves.
I’ll be heading home soon for Christmas, so I don’t know how much I will be posting. Just in case, I will go ahead and wish everyone happy holidays!

I just finished reading “Land of the Living” by Nicci French. I had forgotten how good “her” books are (it’s actually a husband/wife team). I think every one I have read, I have stayed up all night to read it.
But note to self: Perhaps reading thrillers about kidnappers and such is not a good thing to do when you want to go to sleep. I may be sleeping with the lights on tonight.

Okay, I was just over at Amazon and found this:
I was rolling on the floor just reading the sample pages. It was a nice thing to lift my day. Hehe. Oh, and for the curious, How to Lose a Guy… was hilarious. Might have to buy that. Also finished those exercises. Onto Chapter 14!
