Unfortunately, forestcats laptop, six years of age, expired a couple days ago. When I got home from work, last night, we went out and prowled several stores to see what was out there. She's got a good idea what she wants now.

OTOH, she gifted me with more aloha shirts, newly completed off her sewing machine. I wore one last night as we shopped, and I looked spiffy! I'll be wearing another today to work.

I posted another essay for the World Music class. In both classes, I'm getting mediocre grades. Considering that I usually only give an hour or a bit more to writing them, perhaps that's not surprising. Then again, I'm writing what I feel like writing about the topic, and sometimes that isn't really what I've been asked for by the professor. Since I'm not taking these classes for credit, but for my own interest, I don't think I'm going to worry about grades, really. In the comments by the graders, I noted that they did say that I'd brought up some good points, and I'm satisfied with that.

Once home, and once I'd gotten the new essay off to Coursera, we ran some more streaming material, and finished season four of Eureka. Silly show; moderately amusing. Season five isn't available for streaming, but is on disc, so I'll shift around our Netflix list to finish it up. Is there a sixth season?

Now, I've got to get more reading done on Dracula for the F&SF class, and I need to finish my essay on Alice in Wonderland, probably later today. I'm seeing some complaining on the discussion forums about the reading load. Oh, well, that's a literature class for you!

I've been given a bit of crap by the other students who graded the essay, but what the heck, I'm writing for me, not the damn class. And pondering IS fun.
