Welcome to my first blog post of 2014! Christmas was full of food and games at my aunt's house. New Year's Eve was spent in bed watching LAW & ORDER: SVU re-runs and listening to my landlord yell at his mentally handicapped cousin, and around midnight I got to hear him shooting his gun off in the neighborhood. I contemplated calling the police anonymously just to shake the drunken drug addict up a bit, but thought better of it -- if he goes to jail, I lose my place to stay.
On a brighter note, it looks like the only pieces I need now in order to get my computer back up and running are new RAM cards to go into the slots on my motherboard. I sold the old ones on eBay and am awaiting the completion of the payment processing. So if all goes as planned, when I get paid a week from tomorrow I'll go buy new RAM cards and get my Internet back. And then I'll be spending every free minute for the next week and a half catching up on everything I've missed, from watching "The Day of the Doctor" and "Time of the Doctor" to revamping old builds, and from writing a scholarly paper on one of my favorite films to writing up new screenplays.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed your winter holidays. Good luck to all in this year 2014!
