Which is what I got done last night.
I came home Wednesday and the husband said, “Your computer won’t turn on.” Well, crap. I tried it and lo and behold, he was right (not that I doubted him at all). Matt tried it out at work, and declared the hard drive to be dead.
I am not upset about this. No, really. Two months ago I bought a 500 GB external hard drive, and had the foresight to back up the entire contents of the laptop (minus one Blood Ties episode that came to me broken from iTunes, but it was the crappy one about the changeling babies, so I’m okay with that). In the past two months, I’ve saved all my side projects to it, along with my photos, so really there’s not much on the computer that’s not someplace else, except for my bookmarks, which I will perhaps be able to retrieve. I hope.
And then there was a big box of Indian imports that I was to sort through as payment for working a steampunk festival, which necessitated me picking up the husband from work, and then I sat in the bell tower for a couple of hours, and spun up a bit more of the logwood roving, before realizing that I need to wind what I’ve got off onto a toilet tube, and so then I worked some more on the Rivendell socks, and ended up a few rows shy of Chart 2 (which is the cable part). So I guess I got a lot done, but it was a lot of little stuff and doesn’t feel like much. I think that if I’m diligent, I can get to the heel of the sock before the end of Sunday (but that remains to be seen).
This weekend, though – this weekend will see me hopefully getting more knitting accomplished, and seeing Lea and Yul perform in Gwinnett, and hanging out a lot with Jennie, who is staying at my house for a couple of days so I don’t get lonely.
And since Social Life in Medieval Rajasthan just landed on my desk, I’ll be reading a lot of that. Sounds pretty awesome.
And I’m wearing my Pardon My Hindi t-shirt, because it is also awesome.
