Got a different new laptop now. I need one with space and speed and workability, and the old one just didn't do that! Grrrrrrr. So now I have an ASUS with no internal CD drive, but I got an external one and just ripped a CD so all is good :)

Skype is having issues installing right now though so that's a bugger. And still have to reauthorise Microsoft Office and figure out moving iTunes libraries from one computer to another, but that's all for the morning...

Again, I'm super tired and have to get up in less than 6 hours! Argh!

What are you watching?

Anyone watching Star Trek Discovery? I just signed up for cbs all access so will be catching up a few episodes this weekend. Still bummed they cancelled Dark Matter, but at least the new season of Travelers will be starting soon. We watched Season 7 of Hawaii Five-0 on Netflix a few weeks ago. I gotta say, I only watch for the scenery now - It's like they aren't even trying anymore.

So what is everyone watching - sadly I don't have many shows left:

Madam Secretary
Once Upon a Time
Star Trek Discovery

Anyone hooked on something good?

So angry I could chew rocks.

We just hauled a bigass shark. Wearing only a t-shirt, I still went out on deck and climbed up so I could get the perfect shot. And it was indeed perfect, except for how once i was done filming, I couldn't get it to stop filming and then noticed the counter had frozen at 0:25.

After several attempts I had to give up and reboot the phone. AND MY GLORIOUS FOOTAGE IS GONE.


The vantage-point got me the whole shark in one shot, plus crew for scale, and I was leaning on the railing so it was steady as well. SO PRETTY. Now no one will get to see it :(

But for something shiny other people can see, I point your way towards The Book Smuggler's kickstarter. They've already funded, and the two stretch-goals they've busted means more contributors to their blog, and better pay for those contributors, plus an awesome sounding novel. Now they're pushing towards a 10 Year Anniversary book with all their short story collections. Still some shiny rewards left as well. Go have a peek!
