Bad luck follows

So, I know, I know, I've written more excuses than a teenager with a report due...
But you know what? I have a REALLY REALLY good one this time....
My laptop got a really ugly virus...and it is now looping on the startup screen.
I'd fix it but, I need to use the windows disk...
Which I have and I'd use it if...
my husband hadn't forgotten to screw in my disk drive the last time he took apart my computer for whatever reason...
Its like a bizarre benzie-box now...(wow, I feel old)
What does this have with my stalling?
Everything....well...most of it....
Why?
because my links and notes and such were mostly on that laptop....
sure I have my happy notebooks but...
I write like a crippled dog and so I can't read half of what I wrote...
So...
There you go...why I didn't turn in my report Teach.
I'm trying to piece together my chicken scratch and I remember some of the the links I found pics and such from so...I will have to put my nose to the grindstone and redo it.


Honestly at this point I am hating  this subject SO DAMN MUCH.
Does anyone even really care anymore about what I planned on posting??

Don't mind me, right now I'm nursing a dead car battery and a very high fever....maybe I should go sulk in bed.

This is why we've got awesome eNotebooks to dump links for later and half-arsed type-ups on. At least then they're accessible from anything with a net connection.

For the little amount that I actually bother using it, I find Evernote to be really good for that. There's an ample monthly allowance on usage (I've never broken it myself), as well as having a free iPod app, so if I find myself in bed and want to jot down a few ideas I can do so, sync it with their servers and pull it up the next time I'm on a computer. At least 5 of my blog posts were actually written on my iPod, and only edited later for pictures/videos and whatever else have you.

The thing that I find is, if I play the game with the intention of writing about it later, all it does is make me try and find interesting things about it that other people might not, and pick out the faults above anything else. It's probably why I haven't had anything suitable to say about Final Fantasy XIII yet, because I know I'm going to write about it, but at this rate of going all I'm doing is connecting work with enjoyment and neither get done. Play for fun first, then write from memory. You'll be too busy making notes to enjoy games properly, the way they're meant to be played (though one can have their reservations about actually being able to ENJOY Dante's Inferno :| ).

hhmmm..Evernote huh? I'll have to check it out.

Oh, I already played the travesty that is Dante's Inferno enough to write about it...that was a while back. This is actually a lot more...daunting.

I've been working on comparing and contrasting the game, with the poem and the real Dante's life and touching on another game that has similar thematic references yet didn't brow beat with them and was a great game.

You can see where this is making my head want to explode...2 games. a poem and a biography....its like a bad sitcom.
