Sorry for going MIA last night...  
AIM was being evil and would not let me on noway nohow. I tried and tried. So... my apologies to all my rpg girls for my disappearance. AIM better behave tonight or I shall have to kick its scrawny little arse. Heh. Or something.

My Megs has posted the most delightful li'l response to the challenge at u2slash! *so proud* Her first fic in five years, and man did she knock my socks off. Also, melissa2u's and spicedrum's entries are pretty darn wonderful as well. Check them all out if you haven't already! You know you want to!

Not much to report on the personal front. I'm going shopping with my sisters, Sandy (twin) and Jeanne(not twin. heeee), on Saturday. Jeanne had given me a lovely casual suit for Christmas, but the pants look hideous on me. So, we're gonna go return them and try to find some pants that will go with the jacket and still look nice on me. I do love shopping with those girls! Mark needs to hide my credit cards, though...

We've decided -- this should sound familiar -- that with our tax return we will be buying me a computer. We just did this with last year's return (we filed late). But then the "new" computer suddenly turned into Mark's "new work computer." So now he's the newer computer at home claimed and the "new" computer claimed, and I'm still stuck with the shitty one. Grrrr... But I'm thinking I'll go with a computer that does what I need but has no dvd burner (since I can always go in and use the old "new" one at Mark's work), and then maybe look at the U2 ipod with the savings. Anybody who can talk to me about the U2 ipod and advise whether it's worth spending the extra money for that as opposed to any other run of the mill mp3 player will be loved all over.

Working on a terrible murder case at work. Fascinating and depressing all at the once. Ugh. But it's my last case ever. By the time I finish the report and opinion on this one, it'll be time for me to move on to my new job. Yay!

I really, really, REALLY want a U2 mood theme, preferably Larry or Bono. Anyone know where I can get one?

Happy Friday Eve, all!

re: mood theme: Post to your u2 comms and ask around. I googled and found a few, but ya can't post without joining the comm, and I'm too lazy.

iPods suck. I got an mp3 player with the same amount of harddrive space and better features for about $100 less.

AIM sucks too. *nodnod*

No pics of Devon? :(

Thank you so much for the suggestions. I am officially a dork -- didn't even think to google. *feels dumb*

Thank you also for the advice about the ipod. That's generally the advice I'm getting. But... the U2 ipod is so preeeety and has everything they've ever done on it, even stuff not available elsewhere..... *sorely tempted*

I'm sorry about no pictures of Devon. I have lots from Xmas, but I have to be at my home computer to post them, the one that Mark uses, as that's the one we've downloaded them onto, and that's a tricky thing.... hard to get him off that computer long enough for me to get on. But I'll try tonight. I promise! *huuuuugs*
