|I can haz plants?|
The same as last week, except I'm also reading The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy by Violet Blue, and I'll probably mainline the third volume of Alex + Ada tonight.
As promised, my review of Citizenfour went up this week.
It was a slow week for subscription boxes. I just got a Le Tote box. While I liked the tribal pattern shirt on the model, for me I think it's a little too dark and heavy. I do love the skirt and the earrings, though!
The week in review:
This was the week for infuriating and perplexing computer problems. I've been getting rid of my unused and broken electronics (see: KonMari), and realized I could trade in my somewhat ancient netbook on Amazon for $40! Sounded like a great idea at first, but it took me two days and much cursing to get the hard drive wiped and Windows XP reinstalled. I'd forgotten what a son of a bitch Windows can be. I should have just removed the hard drive, buried it in my backyard, and taken the stupid netbook for recycling, BUT NO, I had to get $40 out of it.
Then my Mac was making me rage against the machine because I couldn't type out a single word without seeing the spinning rainbow ball of doom (and when you make your living writing, this is doubly problematic), so I had to figure out what was the heck was wrong with it. Fortunately, being a Mac, it basically fixed itself once I figured out how to restart in recovery mode.
I'm putting together a Sherlockian month for Book Bloggers International in October. All Sherlock, all month! If you'd like to participate, email me at bookbloggersintl [at] gmail [dot] com.
Rock the long(er) weekend if you have it!
