Thanks to Sammy and Myles, I have a new (old) computer with a functioning motherboard and power supply unit. Ted, ongoing Hero of the Revolution, is setting it up. Or, um, at least he’s upstairs swearing, which I assume is an integral part of setup. It would be if I were doing it, certainly.
Thanks to Captain Lucy, Ted and I caught the first episode of Torchwood season 2 last night. There was plenty of gleeful fanboy squeeing and laughing and foot-kicking. *happy*
Thanks to burningwhisper I discovered that the X-Men comic I was convinced was a Jim Lee comic between #1-7 of the Adjectiveless X-Men was in fact UXM 297, and by somebody other than Jim Lee. Apparently I started reading X-Men earlier than I realized.
I *did* go to the gym today (and undid any good it did by eating an enormous bucket of popcorn at the movies), but it made me cranky because there were eleven hundred (or possibly seven) other people there, and I couldn’t use all the machines I wanted to when I wanted to, and they had the music in the aerobics studio up stupidly loud so it could be heard in the rest of the gym, but I wanted to use the damned studio, so I went in and turned the music down some, and when I came out they’d gotten the hotel to turn on the music in the rest of the room, and *it* was stupidly loud. I think I shall either have to go earlier or later, because grr.
But then I walked off my grump with a really long walk, almost six miles, and met Ted for a cup of coffee (well, he had coffee, I had very nice hot chocolate) at the cafe next to the movie theatre, which may now be my favorite cafe. Not only do they have thirty-two, count ’em, thirty-two, kinds of hot chocolate, but they *also* have ROOT BEER! ZOMG! I haven’t drunk it yet, but ZOMG ROOT BEER! It’s German! I’m all interested to see how it is! (God I’ll be disappointed if it’s terrible.) Anyway, it’s a nice toney little cafe with comfortable seats and not-too-loud music, so I think between that and the 32 types of hot chocolate I’ve probably found myself a new editing hangout.
And we went to see “Charlie Wilson’s War”, which was really good.
Pretty good day, really.
