Well life has been interesting lately.  I upgraded from a PC to a Mac G5 in the last few days and I'm getting used to the differences. There IS a learning curve, even if it is relatively gentle. Certain moves I could and DID do on the Windows system don't fly on a Mac. The good thing is the Mac is pretty damned forgiving.  I swore last summer my next computer would be a Mac, and well here it is. A new to me Mac.  It's actually Roomie's G5, he went to an Intel MacPro. So I got the older machine and yes I am liking it. I wasn't looking forward to changing from XP to a newer flavor of Windows, lately Windows has been agravating the hell out of me.

My daughter's pregnancy goes well, except the poor girl can't seem to gain weight. The morning sickness has been kicking her butt. And of course having twins they are all over her to put on some poundage here. I told her to enjoy that part of it, she won't be hearing it again after the kids come. Of course being multiples and in vitro this pregnancy is going to be difficult. She also has the misfortune of sharing my blood type and that's rh negative so she'll be doing LOTS of bloodwork.

I've been avoiding lots of LJs lately because of the squee over the new Trek movie because I haven't seen it yet. I know it's been out for a month but I rarely hit movies in the theatre even though I should. I plan on going soon to see it and of course HBP will be out next month and I definitely plan on seeing it also.

Definitely revisiting the Trek roots fanfiction wise and of course keeping up on the HP fanfiction. But I always do that.

Not much else happening here, summer is definitely here in TX and I anticipate the normal higher than hell electric bills. Roomie is traveling alot more than I like but hell at least he still has a job, and that's no small thing in this economy.  

Of course I am keeping up with the news. I was so mad last sunday I could spit hearing about the murder of Dr. Tiller by that fricking terrorist. And hearing that Stanek published names and addresses of other late term abortion providers had me livid. I totally agree with the late George Carlin that pro-life is anti-woman.  I've been pregnant, had the kids too, but I would never tell another what she can or cannot do with her body. And quite honestly it offends the hell out of me that people think they have the right to impose their values and judgement on others. And late term abortion? I can guarandamntee ya that anyone going through that needs those pro-life loonies protesting in front them like I need another piercing(which means not at all), 

I was flabbergasted when I ported my music files to this computer at how much I actually have. I knew I was torrenting a lot of music but damn!  One folder that was all individual songs had over 1000 songs on it. And then there is all the torrents I've dowloaded. Much more than I thought. And it's real eclectic here. I go from classical all the way into trance. I knew I had a varied collection but putting it all into iTunes surprised the hell out of me.

Not much else going on with me here. Been doing my usual thing. I'm probably traveling more this summer than usual for me. With my sister not doing too well, I know I will be in the San Francisco area sometime this summer and in August well, I'll be in MN and MT visiting friends again. Roomie needs to take vacation this yr also, he's hitting the use it or lose it point with accrued vacation time.
