Everything that falls must diverge. - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
Everything that falls must diverge.
What is this downpour? This rain isn't helping my mood.
There was sun yesterday, for a few minutes.
It was glorious
and I basked like a cat
that didn't see tomorrow.

I had dreams about aetrix9 last night standing stalwart at a cemetery. But I woke up and I was still here.

It's donut day but I can't be bothered.
For the lazy or those that have way too many entries to read for the last week - a quick link back to my Milwaukee trip.

I left my gym bag at home. >:|
In an effort to cheer myself up, I write about nifty things.

It seems that I'm migrating to an exclusively portable computing life. I think I haven't touched my desktop in over a month. After work I'm going to find a hard drive casing to convert my 120gig secondary hard drive to a "portable" external hard drive for my laptop.

Further, I've inquired to Benefits if I can use Epic's computer loan policy to purchase another laptop. I've decided to get one for lady_fox.... not exactly sure why besides knowing she'd like to have one. At the very least, laptops are useful in a wireless world. As weird as it is, her having a laptop would offer an extra bit of intimacy when we go to Barrique's. I don't know how to explain it. You just feel closer to someone when you're doing the same thing in tandem, at least such seems to be the case when aetrix9 and I are at Barrique's with our laptops.

SO! I contemplate laptops. I refuse to get her something bottom-of-the-line even though she has very low demands on computers. I also want to make sure the computer is actually portable since she has back troubles; we may need to find her a useful satchel that will carry her computer and all the sundry purse stuff that she carries.

    Fox: things to consider
  1. How do you want to carry it?
  2. Will you replace your purse with a carry case?
  3. What peripherals might you use? Like jump drives?
  4. Anything weird you'd want to do with it?

    Most important in the list is how you plan to carry the computer. We'll need to figure out what sort of case would be best for you and your back. Try out my Chrome bag and that black satchel (by the file case) today to see if either are comfortable for you to use. Remember, that Chrome bag is not the smallest.

    Other stuff: I've contacted HR for you. I'll forward what responses I get.
    Due to various non-work related emails going about I now know that Fox and I have been dating for 1398 days.
    Sadly, I don't have an exact date Aetrix and I started dating so I can't give an exact figure.

Current Mood: depressed depressed

Er.. I don't think she's had any specific diagnosis. She's pretty tense all the time. One of her legs is slightly longer than the other which throws off her gait. Though with yoga and pilates, she seems to have lessened some of the pain.

I liked my Dell when I had it but it wa a beast at 7 pounds. My current gateway is a little heavier than I'd prefer but the screen is huge and it's a convertible tablet hich rocks. My current dilemma is getting XP to not suck and be slow.

It seems that getting Fox a Dell offers the best possibilities because my job has a corporate discount to use with it and a PC loan, but I can't use the PC loan right now for her. Del has been good to me in the past. I only vaguely worry about the hardware crapping out on me.

My back pretty much just hates me a lot. There was one incident when it was the sciatic nerve, but for the most part, it's up between my shoulder blades, and all up my neck. ABM is right, that Yoga and Pilates have helped a bit. I'm of the opinion that I just need to somehow convince my back that I will not, in fact DIE if it relaxes sometimes.

I do the same thing with the switching of the purse. I've stopped wearing it on my shoulder anymore, and just carry it around... Switch hands when I start feeling pain on one side or the other.

Do you want me to bring your gym bag to you?

1-I like your chrome bag, but they seemed expensive, so your black case is fine. I don't intend on carrying it around with me everywhere... just when we're going to want to go to Barriques, etc.

2-See above. No. I'll keep them separate.

3-No clue. I tend to just email myself stuff, so jump drives are unnecessary. I don't need anything, really.

4-Weird? Like what? My intention is hang at Barriques, et al, with you, emailing, etc... Probably use it at home for the same purpose. *shrug* I don't think I'll want to do anything weird with it.

I'll give you a call when I get to your work with your bag.

Yes, please bring me my gym bag.

Depending on the size of the files, you may be limited in waht you can send via email. We'll see waht happens. :)

You say you'll only bring it to Barrique's NOW... Just wait.

D'oh. Bad news. I can only have one PC loan at a time. I'm lokoing into my current balance but I'm guesing I'll be unable to pay it in full at this time.

I'll look into financing one for you. Dell likes to give me credit.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: January 2nd, 2006 06:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just.... Don't do it if it's going to be too much. I don't want this hanging over either of our heads.


Love you.

Sorry, I have a hair about this and I want to do it. You have no choice now. I'm getting you a laptop some how. :)

You are amazing.

And not because you're planning on spending a lot of money on me either. That is an entirely separate, "You are amazing."

I am with the major love of you.
