minutia

Well, my solution to the not-waking-up problems of my Macbook isn't terribly elegant, but it will do for now: instead of letting it go to sleep, I've turned on the screen saver and then am just shutting it down if I leave for an extended period of time. That at least stops the frustration from disabling my ability to cope with and solve the problem.

Anticipation fulfilled: my DVDs of the first season of Torchwood have finally arrived. I'll probably have time to watch the background "Torchwood Declassified" DVD before the premiere of Season 2 on BBC America this Saturday night, even if I don't get thru watching the season 1 episodes with the commentary. Why no, not obsessed with this show at all, why do you ask?

Xiombarg has been licking a spot on her hindquarters such that the hair is decidedly sparser. I'd like to take her in to the vet on Saturday, but I'm not sure I'll be able to arrange transportation. Maybe my sponsor would be willing to hold our weekly meeting at the clinic, or something like that. Hmm.
