Dear god, the time is upon us... Prepare for the unspeakable... The unthinkable... THE LINKENING!

I shouldn't be laughing at this one

I guess you could call it a well-oiled machine

Medical study backfires, insomniacs live longer. And to think, we're awake for more of it, too!

Okay, this is just too damn creepy

Giving your stalkee the finger is not a good idea

This weekend was absolutely fantastic. I can't even remember the last time I had so much fun, and I've never been more in love. Sucks that the outfit was too loose, but I think I can take care of that pretty easily. Basically all I have to do is rip the seams that connect the panels that have the D-rings in them to the rest of the outfit, and cut down the seam-side of that panel, resew. Saves me the hell of trying to get the D-ring tabs back in to that evil, evil hem. It was sized correctly for the orignal pattern, but that pattern had the grommets about half an inch _inside_ the fabric, where my modification leaves the D-rings about an inch _past_ it. Oops.
The rest of the weekend was not exactly as planned, but hella fun none the less. Cheesecake turned out fine, the Kow Pad Prik was mad tasty, and I got some mad slick gifts. P. seemed pretty happy with hers, too, which was a _big_ relief. As for Saturday, the Zoo trip was postponed due to icky poo weather, and substituted for wit ha trip to the DIA. Ended up going to the Science Center while we were in the area, not as fun as I'd hoped. Much of the place is broken, the rest is overrun with screaming children who aren't learning a damn thing. Honestly, the gift shop was the highlight of that excursion. The DIA rocked socks, however, and some good discussion made it that much better. Hell, good discussion was part of what made this weekend so terrific. Moving on, we hit the mall to get P.'s watch fitted, ended up snagging some cut-price Godiva. Mmm... Anyway, we went home for the cooking, gifts, and to watch the rest of Ah! Megami-Sama, which I think cleared up some misconceptions as to why I like the series so much. That, and I hadn't seen the last two episodes since the ConJaNai in 98. The subject matter was almost errily appropriate, and secretly I was kicking myself for not spending the money I used on gifts for something else. Something round, shiny, and eternal.
Sunday was idyllic. Just as I'd hoped. The stopgap flowers I bought at the last minute decided to bloom beatifully, which I thought was one of those cool, prophetic things, made me smile. We spent the rest of the evening joking, reading, and generally being happy together. Perfection. I was very, very close to calling off work today. Would have been nice, but going to class with P. might not have been a good idea. That was the only thing that stopped me. I guess I'll just have to settle for floating around the office in bliss.

Hey yo! What the hell was that 'Well oiled machine' thing? I've heard of computers that use chemical reactions in fluid to work, I think it was called wetware. Was that one?
Oh yeah, are you ever going to send me the links to those sites so I can start buying my computer guts?

The well-oiled machine story was an example of fluid suspension cooling, that guy actually submerged his entire PC in a non-conductive oil, and circulated the oil through a radiator to keep it cool. Kinda gross when you upgrade, but it's unmatched in active cooling methods. As for links, here you go :

Motherboard (ABit KG7) and processor (Athlon 1.4GHz socket A), mention "PriceWatch" in order and the combo will only cost $180


Hard drive

Video card

And anything else is cheap enough to buy at Strategy One, or you can gank out of your old machine.
