Here, There and Everywhere

I haven’t blogged for real in 10 days! That’s actually surprising, considering all the ideas that have been running through my head. It does mean I can warp up several mini-blogs into one.

First, I got a haircut not long ago, for the first time in over 3 years. Needless to say it was quite necessary. In the meantime, I had used my own hands and a pair of scissors to keep them from getting too long. I do have pictures, but I am too lazy to retrieve them now to post them here. You can see them on Snark and Facebook, anyway.

Second, I got a new pair of glasses! 🙂 This is also most welcome. I ran out of contacts over a year ago, so I had to wear an old pair of glasses. They were over 5 years old, not adjusted to my current eyesight, enormous and falling apart. The new pair is red and fits me very well. Pictures coming eventually… My mother’s camera is broken, so I have to rely on either her cell phone or my webcam.

Third, expect some changes computer-wise. Some of them will probably be unnoticed on your side, others will be inevitably seen.

I finally both a router and a missing cable so I could connect my computer to internet. No more using my mother’s computer!

My computer, however, is over 2 years old and has never been formatted. It really needs to be. My goal is to back up everything that needs to be backed up (music and documents, mostly. Programs will simply need to be re-downloaded, since I basically only use built-in or open source programs). Then I can format the old thing, making it like new. And very new it will be, indeed! I intend to install Linux. Some version of Ubuntu, I haven’t decided which one yet. I think this will help my computer, which needs all the space and RAM I can save. An advantage of Ubuntu is that I will be able to update without ever being told to install Vista. I still refuse to touch Vista with a ten-foot bargepole. Whatever a bargepole is.

But, before formatting, I want to finally finish my new personal website. No more wordpress.com, here I come CalmBanana! Rachaely will be hosting me. Actually, she’s already hosting my (very neglected) fanlisting collective, but now she’ll be stuck with all of me.

P.S. Oh, and I’m also in the process of learning German. Fun fun fun!

    I’ve always wondered what a bargepole is, too! And what is the standard size for one? (I.e. why is a length of ten feet always specified?)

    Hey, I just read about 4 of your poems. And I like the audacity of “Le couteau”. What language do you prefer, French of English (I’m a from Belgium so would prefer spreaking French 🙂 ) hehe.
    Anyways, I’m a big fan of Arthur Rimbaud and I wrote a couple of articles relating his poetry to our modern times.
    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Thanks. 🙂

    Je n’ai pas vraiment de prĂ©fĂ©rence entre l’anglais ou le français. Je trouve que chacun a ses avantages et inconvĂ©nients. Pour la poĂ©sie, je prĂ©fère le français, en fait, et plusieurs des poèmes que j’ai ici ont originalement Ă©tĂ© Ă©crits en français.
