New computer

My new computer arrived yesterday. I felt a bit bad about replacing my old one before it's completely dead, but I use my computer for so much that I didn't feel I could wait for it to get to that point.

 

I've set up the new one and transferred over a few things. I'm pleased that my Calibre library seems to be working perfectly, with all the tags still present and everything. This weekend I may put the computer to the test with some graphics-heavy games. Absolutely for testing purposes and not because I really want to play those games or anything. Yes.

Why did I do that

I may have volunteered to do a conference presentation. That, combined with a vacation I'll likely be taking at the end of October, could make it hard to participate in Halloween Bingo much.

 

I kind of hope my presentation idea gets rejected. I have this fear that I'll either have a pity audience like last year (ugh, that sucked) or I'll have audience members who're better qualified to do the presentation than me. Or both.

Management clearly didn't think this one through

I went to the coffee place across the street to get a cup of coffee and a cookie. As the person at the register was ringing everything up, she asked me "So...are you a mom?"

 

I am not a mom and have no intention of ever being one. I also hadn't expected any of this to come up while getting coffee, so my brain kind of ground to a halt. The best I could get out was "Uh, no. I have a cat, though."

 

Turns out that since this is the first day of school for all the local kids, the coffee place decided to have a "Mom sale." Except instead of putting out a sign advertising it and accepting that some people would lie to get the discount, employees have to ask everyone who might be a mom if they're a mom. Awkward.

This isn't book-related at all. I just came across it and was left speechless for a bit, so now I need to share it. Sometime later today I may get sucked into an "ultimate epic battle simulator" black hole.

I miss electricity

According to the last estimate, I'm going to be without power for at least 12 hours today. It went out at 5 AM and is proving tougher to fix than the electricity company thought (first estimate was only 2 hours). 

 

really hope this doesn't end up extending into tomorrow.

 

ETA: It's back on earlier than expected! Yay!!!
