Dude! Not cool!

So my macbook’s hard drive just… died. Died dead.

Now, I have been knocking on every peice of wood I have encountered since that I backed up everything on it last Wednesday (when I had to take it in to the Apple store for unrelated fan issues) and haven’t used it much since then since we’re on spring break now.

I was, however, working on re-doing my IPL practice question all morning, and now that’s gone. So I suppose that since this could’ve been a case of EPIC FAIL of MASSIVE PROPORTIONS, I really lucked out I mean really lucked out. I haven’t even started retyping my notes that I had written by hand in classes last week.

Of course, I’m now consumed by teh Lazy and don’t want to start the IPL question over. At least it’s the practice question…


TNT checks out ‘Librarian’ again

TNT checks out ‘Librarian’ again —

The cable network has begun production on the third installment of its ”Librarian” franchise, with former ”ER” star Noah Wyle reprising his title role. The movie, titled ”The Librarian: The Curse of the Judas Chalice,” is scheduled to premiere in late 2008.

After a series of dreams leads him to New Orleans (where the film began production last week), he gets tangled up in a conspiracy involving both the chalice and the legendary vampire Count Vlad Dracula.

You know, I gotta say… if we’ve got some sort of “Dracula 2000” meets “Interview with the Vampire” thing going on here, I might just have to check this series out… the sheer WTF = epic curiosity.

It’s that time again…

I think I’ve hit burnout this week. It’s appropriate timing though, only two weeks (a week and a half?) until Spring Break, so I actually am rather impressed that I’ve managed to keep up on everything until now (well, on almost everything… everything that needed to be handed in, anyway), but last night was the first time that I didn’t hand in something on-time. I had a quasi-legitimate excuse (had some rather Big and Legitimately Important Social Events over the weekend), which I submitted with 1/2 of the weekly assignment, and I’ll get the other 1/2 done sometime today.  But yeah, I’ve kind of lost a bulk of my motivation. It’s a little frustrating, but I suppose it’s understandable.

“American Gods” via HarperCollins

As any loyal reader of Neil Gaiman’s Blog already knows, Harper Collins had a vote on which of Neil’s books should be made available for free online. Like Neil said in the post announcing the decision, I’m surprised that people chose American Gods as well, even though it’s my second favorite (next to Neverwhere)–it’s a bit long to be read online! I had personally voted for Smoke and Mirrors… short stories are much easier to read online, and I would think that the short length would be more able to bring in new readers. But what’s done is done, and hopefully a number of people will be reading it! I’ll stick with  my hard copy…
