I just stopped in to see what condition my condition was in

The weekend, sadly, was a bust. I failed to go to a perfectly good BBQ in walking distance of my house on Saturday because I was depressed and disoriented. Then I tried to go to the dreaded 60/30 hellbirthday on Sunday only to find that it had happened on Saturday; I had been misinformed. The D’s crowd therefore got a surprise visit from me bearing hummus.

I’m fighting a pernicious desire to stay in bed with the covers over my head. It’s all wrong; this is a bad time of my life to be down ‘n’ dumpy.

Mad props to hensatc for hooking me up with a very nicely priced floor-demo Apple laptop. I’m now in the OS X full-time, and not just when I can boot my mother off her own computer. I obviously miss a lot of things about Linux that I had tuned up and familiar, but I can tell this is going to be a good desktop OS for me. Besides, these powerbooks have beautiful displays and ergonomics, unlike my dying work-provided ThinkPad.

realitylost thinks I should shave off my beard, but I cling to it: cling, cling, cling.

  1. Vive la revolucion! 🙂
    one application that may make your os x days happier is codetek’s virtualdesktop. or the freeware clone at wsmanager.sf.net 🙂

  2. If you need advice on shaving…
    I can provide. =) I do understand the clinging urge, though. I tried to save a fringe of hair from the razor; it became futile as I picked it away bit by bit. =/
    I’m sorry your weekend went so poorly. =( I’m fighting a similar urge. After being sick I tend to get in a bit of a downturn. At least now that I’m better I can actually go outside in nice fall weather (I keep telling myself). Just have to walk out the door…

    This is also a good song. Actually provides a reason for Kenny Rogers. The mind, it boggles.
    I also *heart* my iBook.
