Working Saturdays always makes for an odd weekend, but I did get to have dinner with friends on Sunday and hang out for a while. That was a nice addition to the weekend. This week has been a lot of running between jobs and evening plans. Mostly the usual, though tonight was an extra.

Went to the Columbus Idea Foundry to get some help with my computers. Laptop, after taking it apart and examining the power port, we are thinking it may just be a short in the cord. The pin in the port is a tiny bit loose, but it seems like moving the cord does most of the disconnecting. So, next step, try out a new cord at Microcenter when I have time. Desktop got an extra Gig of RAM, and we investigated what it’d take to upgrade the processor. Next step, update the BIOS. It’s SUCH an old machine. But she still runs, so.

I also got to take a look at my new apartment this week, t-minus 1 week to go. There are a few things the property manager put on her list to finish/fix before I move it. All little fiddly bits – a light switch cover, a plug cover, hook up the new gas stove, fix a couple things that got painted shut (assumedly, by the guys they fired) … But, all in all, it looks ready to go. The entry doors/angles are such that I’m glad I’ve got professionals moving the very big things. Looking forward to the new place and the extra space, though looking like I’m going to need/want some area rugs for the floors. It’s always something. ­čÖé

Audiobooks: I listened to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up by┬áMarie Kondo, very interesting philosophy and proccess, and Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer, very creepy. Now, I’m onto Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore. Started off iffy, but it’s gotten more interesting.
