Haven't written all that much lately. Not too much has been happening, and when I do think of something to write about it I put it off until later and then forget about it. But I figure I should jot done some minor events. For posterity and all that.
Well, October has come
and gone. It's normally my favorite time of year, what with the change
of season and Halloween, but I just wasn't feeling it too much this
year. One reason is because I came down with a bad cold right in the
middle of the month, which sapped my energy and enthusiasm for the
holiday. It's been a month but I still have some sniffles from that
one. Another reason is it was very unseasonably cold here for most of
October, so it just didn't feel right. For a week or so it felt more
like December, really. But now the other holidays are approaching and I
might be more in the mood for that. I was noticing today how it's
always feels sorta refreshing just after all the leaves fall.. the sky
is opened up, you can see deep into the woods, everything's gray yet
bright. Of course, after a few months of that, you definitely start
looking forward to some leaves again.
Speaking of leaves, I
still need to get mine removed. I hire someone to do that. I'd do it
myself, but I have like 11 oak trees in my yard alone... that's a lot of
leaves, and a lot of bags. When I was young we'd just rake em up into a
heap on a tarp, drag the tarp across the street into the woods and dump
them. But now the ruined stone wall we used to dump them off of has
an ugly modern house built on top of it, and there's not really an
suitable dumping site in the remaining woods.
My gaming computer
died a month or so ago. That's not good, ya gotta have one of those. I
wanted to replace it with a decent one, but the fancier pre built ones
you can get are extremely expensive, upwards of a couple thousand. So I
did my research and started ordering stuff, and set about to building
my own for much cheaper. It was very nerve-wracking, handling that
expensive hardware, hoping not to damage it. It took all evening but I
finally got it together... and, amazingly, it worked! It's still
working. It's not all that hard once you figure out what goes where,
but I still feel proud about it. And better yet, the computer case I
got is bright pink! You can't go wrong with a pink computer.
Also, a quote from a recent dream--
"And you added giant electromagnets... why?"
"Dude, everything is cooler with giant electromagnets."
