QotD: My Love (because “My <3" looks BAAAD)

Who or what do you really love?

When I saw this, I heard the music "Who Do you love? Who Do you love" running through my head. lol

Well, Who: Don. My Husband/Partner/Lover. Up to you what you call him, provided it's nice or in jest.
What do I love? a much harder question, because it's a much broader question.  I love rainy days (provided I'm staying inside). I love my fishies. (I'll show you my new one in a minute, now that he's not being poisoned. Bad Sister!)  I love my cat. I love my course of Study. I love my friends. (although they're probably a "who"… maybe :P). I love my Vox.

QotD: The Best Brew

What method do you use to prepare your coffee or tea? 
Submitted by AgentBouche.

Well, if I'm in the mood for a lot of coffee, I use my percolator, 7 spoons of Croplines French Blend grounds make 4 (huge) cups of coffee. then sip away (no milk or sugar for me). for single coffees, I have Moccona Mystique in the bottom of a cup, and pour freshly boiled water in on top, stir briefly, and sip away.  Option 3: Buy Cappucino, either from Degrees, or from The Bistro (both really good &@ Uni), but not from the UniCaf because their coffees taste like burnt mud… on a good day.

QotD: Pass Me The Style Section

Do you read the Sunday paper?  Which one(s)?

Nope: I'm just subscribed to a few of the ABC's RSS Feeds.  it's such a handy service. how do people have the time to really read the papers in the mornings… I'm lucky if I get around to reading one paper a week 2-3 days after it was printed!

Birthdays

Well, it was my birthday on the 9th of Feb, and my Mum's on the 10th. so on the arvo of the 10th, my folks and their Japanese Exchange Student Tatsuya (pronounced Tatsia) come up for a barbecue, which was really nice.

I gave Mum a Yellow Water Lily for her new goldfish pond near her verandah. I was furnished with 11 Red Wine Glasses by my sister, 6 small china bowls from mum and dad, a goldfish in a carafe from my sister, a book of SuDoku from my brother, The Dark Mirror by Juliet Marillier and a 1GB Flash Drive from Tatsuya and his family, and from C I received Terry Pratchett's Carpe Jugulum (Starring Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Magrat Garlick, and The Vampires) quite a productive birthday. with the only problem being finding places to store the glasses and bowls. That, and the goldfish died before we got back from a friends on the evening of the 10th. poor 'Illiam. The name stems from a long series of things, but basically centres around the fact that the Japanese can't say the 'W' sound. the were going to name the poor thing "Whateveryouwannacallit" which got twisted to something resembling "oddie(…)" which, with my family being Goodies Fans, lead them to Bill, but the real name for Bill is William, which Tatsuya can't say, so it is now 'Illiam. Except that he's dead. Poor Illiam.

and right now, I'm rather bored, I might go look @ Vox's QotD or something…

Blogging again finally!

But I have no idea where to begin…

it's been so long, there's Christmas, and my business, and my desktop computer being completely unreliable since Jan 4… hmmm

Christasm! er, no! Christmas… (let's figure out what Christasms are later hmmm?)

well, it happened on December 25. ("ha ha", you all say)
but for Don and I, it happened on Dec 24-26, we went down to my parents place on Christmas Eve, had dinner with them, and stayed there that night.  Christmas Day, usually I'm woken up by my brother at precisely 7AM. I mistakenly thought I'd be asleep until at least 7:30, but for some insane reason was awake and completely alert at 5:30AM. fortunately, my parents are Pratchett people, and I was able to read Going Postal. 8:30, someone else -finally- got up! I had some breakfast… (well, Mum had some breakfast, I had more coffee) eventually, the rest of the troops arose, and we went opening presents. Don and I got a fantastic display unit, a nice sum of money (which actually contributed to the lack of desktop computer), Some serving-crockery, and some car care products. Then, about 4:00, we went to my Aunty Vicki's place for my mum's annual family get-together, involving "the present game". We had fantastic fun!

My Business!
I've had a few people getting me to do things for them this year, and as a result, I've built a reasonable client-base! the holidays have seen me building 5 computers, diagnosing/fixing 2, designing a website, and I have 3 more computers en route to be fixed and assessed for upgradeability. It's been quite a nice little money-spinner. Somewhat disturbing is the fact that I will almost have paid off my computer before I have it back and working properly… which brings me to my lack of desktop!

I spent my Christmas Money, and Play Money, and borrowed some money from the Credit Card, to buy myself a nice new computer.  From the conlcusion of construction the computer would restart randomly, with BSODs. which, when I eventually managed to determine what was causing the issue (a Motherboard Hard Drive Controller Issue) so I sent my motherboard back to my supplier, who have sent it back to their supplier, and I have been waiting ever since… I have a brand new AMD X2 4200 Processor (the AMD Dual Core) and a 256MB PCIExpress Graphics Card which cost me about $300, not to mention Hard Drives, DVD Drives, Case, Power Supply, and so on and so forth. none of which I can use until my motherboard returns, and my supplier currently has no date as to when that might be.

as I remember other things, I'll post them!
