My Widdle Bwain

Tired, Yet Geekly

Early this afternoon I was going to make the following post:

So far I've lounged late in bed, cleaned up the kitchen, did a little clearing off of the Tivo and solved two technical problems. I rock! Now, what to fix next?

But then I found out what to do next: solve an annoying, unexpected other technical problem. ("But it worked last time!" I whined. "Nothing's different. So why's it broke?")

It took me the rest of the day (albeit an interrupted day where I took out my frustration on the problem by severely pruning a bush, pulling the weeds, and raking a bunch of leaves), but I finally got it working! It's a horrid, cludgy fix which more or less completely skirts around actually resolving the problem, but it did at least allow things to move forward. So I call myself victorious. I should retreat to bed now.

It somewhat disturbs me that I consider a two hour bout of gardening to be "being slothful." Though to some extent it is, since it ended up taking the place of 45 minutes at the gym. Ah, cardio, how I miss thee!

On an unrelated note, I have a torrent for Kouhaku downloading. It's horribly slow thanks to the file being huge and there not being a lot of seeds yet. But I shall yet have my New Years costume dorktasticness! *flames of crimes against fashion dorktasticness*
