My laptop came on...Wednesday, I think. For me, who's only ever had/used desktop computers, the novelty of a portable computer is immense. It's convenient and fabulous and I love it. I need to get some programs and stuff installed on it still, but it's pretty swank. The only thing I don't like is that is has Windows Vista; I much prefer XP, but that wasn't an option. Oh well. Vista isn't horrible, so far as I can see.
I was supposed to be house-sitting for my grandparents this week, because they were going on a random roadtrip. They were only gone for like ten hours, though, because my grandma got sick and they turned around. So much for my planned week of quiet, free food, and non-stop internetting. Aw well.
the_firefly pimped Claymore out to me, and I've devoured the manga voraciously over the past few days. Now I'm caught up though, so I have to wait for the next chapter. Dang. It takes a little while to establish the setting, but once that groundwork is laid, it takes off. There's something about the art style, too. It kind of reminds me of Charles Vess a little, and of course there are all those yummy Giger-esque monster designs.
