A collection of little things.

I've been ridiculously busy at work lately (and it's going to get worse before it gets better). As a result, in my downtime I've been ridiculously lazy. It all averages out to something reasonable, I imagine, but a wise person once said, "Never attempt to wade across a river whose average depth is four feet."

People are having a lot of trouble with their Windows-based computers lately, I find — ECB had to earn her stripes and reformat her XP machine (it totally works now, and I am totally proud of her), my brother's been trying to install a printer on Vista for about a month now (I had a crack at it last weekend and didn't get anywhere), and ECB's friend C owns a laptop whose screen, very randomly, goes black (although the fan and hard drive are still spinning, the only remedy is turning it off and back on again). My laptop's a Mac and my desktop runs Linux, so... now is the kind of time when I get to hold shit like that over peoples' heads.

Facebook has again proven to me that the world, and even this Megacity, is really quite small.

I was listening to my music on shuffle sometime this weekend, and there was a song that I hadn't heard in a while and totally had it stuck in my head for the next day. But now that I want to go back and hear it again, I have absolutely no idea what song it was. Believe me, I've searched and searched — I think there was an X somewhere in the name or the artist — but, aside from going through every one of the songs on my hard drive (the thought did cross my mind), it'll just sit there, undiscovered. So I'll just listen to Spoon instead, 'cause they're pretty good too. Also solid: King Khan and the Shrines.

I really should transfer my March Break pictures from my camera to my computer. But hey, that's laziness for ya.
