Not too much to note.

I've been playing a new MMO called Rift lately. It's a pretty fun game, and I intend to pre-order it tomorrow at Gamestop. I have no idea where I'm going to come up with the money to pay for it once it releases on the 1st of March, but I'll worry about that in a week or two.

I've fallen in love with my Mac, even though I still don't understand everything and find myself trying to do things on it that I'd do on Windows. But I imagine that will disappear as I continue to use the Mac.

I love Scrivener, too. I imported the manuscript of a friend (Romina!) and cut it into chapter files and all that jazz, so I'll finally start working on that for her. Did the first two chapters already! Only thirty-two more to go! I've been telling her I'd do this for months now (maybe years!) so it's nice to have started. Finally. I wanted to have it done by the end of February, but that's looking highly unlikely.

I need to read a book and write a review for HBC by the middle of March, and I need to revise ETERNITY IN AN HOUR, too, as soon as I can! (I'm on my Mac now, and I'm using a weird LiveJournal client, and I can't figure out how to italicize here. I thought it would be Command+I, but it's not!)

Anyway, I'm tired and I have to work for eight hours tomorrow, which will be a treat. I hate my job at the moment. It's boring and tedius and thankless. But I feel like most jobs are like that. I keep telling people I"m not meant to work. I need to find a rich old guy and have my way with him... and by him, I mean his bank account. I'm cute! I could pull it off!

Sigh.

Good night!

So, I'm writing this post from my new MacBook Air! I'm rather a large fan so far. It's so fast -- it takes 17 seconds to boot up after shutdown and it takes literally half a second to wake up after shutting the lid (and thereby putting it to sleep).

I've already downloaded both of the programs I really wanted, Scrivener and Aeon Timeline. Scrivener is awesome, as I knew it would be. Aeon Timeline has some bugs. It's still a beta project, which I don't think I really reallized, and so it's got a lot of work to go, but... still, it has so much potential.

Once I get a dedicated place to sit with this thing -- the computer is so small, but my current desk barely fits one laptop -- I'll be golden. I'll add that to the list of reasons why I'm excited to move. That makes about two, to counter the 2938479874987 reasons I don't want to move. Yay!

I'm very tired, so I'm going to head to bed. To all you Mac haters out there: suck it!
