Wowzers...it's been a while. Sorry, Sony, I have been neglecting my responsibilities but really, Dell is to blame! My parents were in town over Thanksgiving and I was on my computer uploading some pics or something and all of the sudden my computer starts making these weird staticy noises. And then the speakers got really hot. And then it started smelling like smoke. So I did this online chat deal with Dell customer care and they told me to power down my computer before I did myself harm and wait patiently while they sent a replacement. I'm not in to masochism so I abided.
Now, I have this new all black computer. It's fine. I really liked my old one. Not to mention that all my pics and music were on it and the "easy transfer" cable seems to earn it's "easy" title because it transfers like half of what's on your computer. Mainly because the misers at iTunes protect everything which is also annoying because I can't transfer music over my iPod because my iPod also has a case of the sizzles. Apparently, me and Stella's propensity to drool on electronics are not working out in my favor.
Ok, I have finally tracked down all the Sony software and loaded it onto this computer so I'm good to go. I also did some research on GMT so I think that my photos may actually be assigned to the correct time zone going forward!
So a lot has been going on in my last few weeks of unemployment. After Napa, my fam came into town for Thanksgiving which was fun. Then we went to Vegas for a half marathon. Now, I'm getting packed up to go to DC for the weekend. It will be the first time since I moved out here that I'm going for fun and not for work!
I already have a Napa post so I can keep this brief. Napa rocked. I didn't learn so much about wine as about drinking wine. But it was beautiful and the people were super friendly - not pretentious at all. It was a very good time. Here are some pics...
