I want my Sunday back!
The Junk Heap
"We're on this planet for the blink of an eye but some of us live longer, even when they die young"
Anyway, as for other things. I'm gonna be entering the short story competition. I'm not expecting to win, as I've never written a short story in my life. From a young age, I could never condense a plot into a limited amount of words, hence why I prefer epics and novels. I prefer to roam my characters personalities and look at the minutiae, which you don't get much leg room to do in short stories. But, hey, I may as well give it a shot, y'know? It's always worth practising.
Also, the laptop issue I had the other week. I think I might have solved the issue. I ought to stop leaving the ruddy thing on standby. There, fixed. I should be a tech expert. We're now looking at more reasonable temperatures of 42-53 degrees celsius, which while still unnerving, are not nearly as bad, and definitely not a sign my laptop has decided it wants to become lava.
Also, check it out. I've actually added some content blocks, if only to give a little life to my blog. But it still feels like it lacks something. Hm, I'll think on it some more.
To make matters worse, the heat of my laptop's currently unnerving me. The CPU's running at 72 degrees celcius on average, and while I was informed 60 is the average, twice my body temperature just doesn't seem right. I'm too unnerved by this heat to even risk finally playing a video game on Steam, like Skyrim or something which I've been longing for for ages, just in case my laptop erupts into an inferno that consumes the entire country. Not cool.
Him: "Hello, am I speaking to Mr [Surname, which they somehow managed to get wrong]"
Me: "Sorry, he's not in at the moment, but can I take a message?"
Him: "Brrm. Brrm brrm. Brrrrrrrrrm." *Hangs up*
I don't even.
On the plus side, as well as reading a fair portion more of Charlotte Street, watching District 9 and No Country For Old Men and having a very pleasant walk, with 3,834 words, I must surely have finished Chapter 18 of TBKS, right? Wrong. I've only just finished the first half of the chapter. ;_;
Still, at least it ends on a cliffhanger I'm very satisfied with. It's all uphill (Or downhill, depending on your perspective) from here folks.
