--Visited a local computer fix-it store that has lots of plants and a dog in the store! They said that while the part is cheap, the labor for replacing the port is several hundred dollars. And there may be other things wrong with this computer too. Told them I'd think about it.

--Started watching Black Sails, which is violent as all hell but I like the queerness and the politicking and the glimpse into pirate society. They must use a filter that makes blue really shine, and there are plenty of blue-eyed actors on the show.

--Playing Dragon Age: Inquisition on the xbox 360.

--It's been about 3 months since my last nerve block (already!) so it's time for another one; but I won't be able to get in for the appt for another few weeks.

My computer started today after a couple of days of not starting. I think the problem is the power port. I was trying to positive-talk myself about it but let me tell you, once it started up, I was instantly so relieved and 100% less cranky. The internet (ie my people here and writing about things, and distracting myself, etc) is such a huge support system for me!!

I had a terrible arthritis week, but things seem to be improving today.

I've been plaing a lot of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Probably too much. But I'm really enjoying it. I've never played a game like this before. It's so huge and so much fun to explore. I love the landscapes. My inquisitor, whom I've called Althea, has dark skin, green eyes, and almost no hair. I started as an archer but ended up having her fight with two blades.

I am taking my computer in for service so I will likely be offline for a few days. See ya'll later!

I got waaaay over tired this weekend. In my head I should still be able to do moderately physical things. And of course the weird thing is, sometimes I still can. But I helped my friend move, and the bending/leaning over involved in packing and such was just too much. On Saturday night I slept for 13 hours. On Sunday I went back and packed the fridge and freezer. I didn't lift any heavy items.

On Monday I picked up my computer only to find it still not connecting to the internet. I was still super tired and had a meltdown.

This week has been hard. I am feeling very impaired.

Good things:

While without internet, I read several comic books. I'm really enjoying comics club.
Abbie dog is happy and silly. And healthily plump right now; she loves her new flavor of dog kibble which is lamb.
Having my internet back at least provisionally!!!!
Wool socks!

I am on a bit of an enforced internet/computer break for about a week. I plan to live like it's the 1990s and watch movies, read paper books*, go outside, etc. I have already watched a couple DVDs from the library. Best way to reach me right now is via text message.

I am also thinking about changing jobs. Working from grant to grant is stressful. Advice on this front welcome.

*My Kindle 2 is borked. It lasted a long time but the little LED light fell out and the screen is frozen. Since it's past warranty, a friend said that the company would probably just offer me a discount on a new one rather than repair this one. I don't know that I want another Kindle necessarily; but I sure miss reading fanfic on it!

Glitch hasn't been working for me and I got this note from Support. Do you think my ISP could really be blocking Glitch?

My laptop is having power problems, which is a particular curse of mine. Since this is the 2nd power cord for this laptop, I begin to suspect the problem is in the laptop, not the cord.

I will take suggestions if you have them. I have an Acer Aspire 4730Z that I just got in the Spring, so it's not old.

Did I mention I have work to do, actual paid work that's been gathering dust? Also an important article I want to write? And lots of other important things to do that I rely on my laptop for?
