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.

I hope your daughter will feel better soon, I'm glad her pregnancy is going well.
And those so-called pro-lifers freak the crap out of me, too. How can they call themselves pro-lifers when they murder people?

That's the problem I have with them. They murder people who don't do as they want. They're hypocrites really. They have these hotlines all over the place for pregnant teens to 'help' them make the decision but they offer no substantial help to pregnant women. A good percentage of them are the same people who rail against any kind of program that sounds like 'welfare' to them. They really don't give a rat's ass about the babies once they are here, they just hate the idea that a woman may choose not to continue her pregnancy for whatever reason. It irritates me, to put it mildly.

These are the same whackjobs that work in pharmacies that refuse to fill birth control prescriptions claiming conscience as the reason. They want women to be slaves to their reproductive systems. And they are usually men.

I am glad my daughter's pregnancy is going well also. She's been through so much just to get pregnant it just boggles here. The good thing to me is two at once means unless she is really set on more than two kids she doesn't have to do this again. In vitro is pretty invasive and there is so much that goes into it, with meds and shots. These are my first grandchildren also, which is really kinda cool.

She's due mid-December but since it's twins she'll probably go early.
