Last few days have been rather busy. After my antics regarding AnimeDVDs, the living room was left with a rather unsurprising lack of space. [livejournal.com profile] lenoria_light took considerable askance to that and over the last couple of days there has been a complete overhaul, not just of the living room, but of both bedrooms as well. The dvds and books that had previously been strewn through various corners of the house have been collected, condensed and codified into some racks which I retrieved from their abandoned idleness at Mum's house on Monday evening, while the bookshelf that had resided dustily in my bedroom as an ersatz side-table has been promoted to new prominance in the living room, with the storage of books. Taking its place in my room is my sisters old desk, which fits comfortably between my "wardrobe" and my newly relocated bed, which was moved to take advantage of the extra space vacated by the bookshelf. My television (which used to share space on my previous desk with my computer) is now placed by the open window for the convinience of any passing larcener, and is angled somewhat uncomfortably for general viewing, although my bed has ample view.

While we still await another desk, bookshelf and low filing table they normally sell with desks as a set, the re-arranged furnishings have given a palpably different atmosphere to the place. Especially during the hotter months, the feeling of openness is more welcome than the opressive aura that surrounded the past.

During one of my frequent trips between Mums house and ours, I managed to rediscover the majority of my old Superjesus collection, sadly missing my copies of Sumo and Jet Age (the last Superjesus cd I bought). Soon I'll add them to my cars playlist, and I'll be able to reminisce. :P

Also forgot to mention, need to check availability of "LOLMOBILE"

Cloverfield is the new big ticket must see movie item for the thinking geeks in January, and anyone who's seen the cinema trailer for it will know why. I went to see it last night, and it really does live up to the hype, although perhaps not in the way that same might expect.

I must advise any who are thinking of seeing the movie to beware motion sickness or general dizzyness. I dont normally suffer from such, but there were moments in the film which made me dizzy, and even now I get woozy if I turn my head too fast. :P

Either way, the movie was really good and I advise people to see it, as long as they take the proper precautions. :P

For the last three days, I've been eating sit down dinners at restaurants. !!! Thats almost half a week devoted to expensive dining. Today, there is no restaurant dinner, and I begin to feel the pangs of hunger and wonder where and how my next meal will be coming. Over the weekend, I have lost valuable survival skills that previous, wild versions of myself may have used but havent been necessary for later generations. Without a wait-person, printed menus and 7 or so other people to eat with, (not to mention a doubling of the price) I have no context with which to understand when to eat. Pavlovian.

That said, I must always order the Steak and Ribs from Hogs Breath with Hickory Smoked sauce. And never take entree's.

For those unknowing, I've been experiencing computer failure in my primary box (currently borrowing Riven's spare box for my general computing needs), but each time this happens I am brought closer and closer to getting a IntelMac instead. Since I've started storing most of my data on External HD's anyway, the prospect is generally appealing. What bothers me most is having to share my web between two OS's. I saw an article awhile ago about running firefox off removable media such as a flash drive, which seems like a good idea, but it still suffers from the OS divide. That said, MacOS can really do everthing I need it to do now, except gaming, and BootCamp can provide an inelegant way of providing that, with the added bonus of being able to send the box off to someone else to fix if I need it done. I understand Macs have a 2 year warranty or something, which is good because none of my PC's have ever lasted two years problem free. :P

Anyway, this recent thread on the PaniC forums has caused me to miss the piles of AnimeDVDs I once took for granted, I'll be heading by my mum's place later to pick them up. Brumby.
