Band of Brothers musings. )

In other news, I finally installed the memory I had bought months ago for my aging laptop. I've never done anything like this before, so I've been putting it off out of fear (and of course laziness). There were some tears and some screaming and the first five tries resulted in failure and I very nearly gave up, but eventually I got it to work. BTW, when a manual says that "you may encounter some resistance" in getting a part to slide into a slot, interpret that to mean you have to push hard enough that you're sure the whole thing is going to break off, and then push even harder than that. Oh, and if you can't get the new memory chip to fit, never take out the other memory chip in order to see how that one works--you'll be left with two chips that won't fit in place and a computer that instead of just being slow, will not work at all.

My fingers actually hurt now.

I wrote this last week on the train back from D.C. and also forgot about it. Absent minded? Me? I misplace half my supposed journal entries that way.

I’ve been reading Steven Ambrose’s book Band of Brothers after having watched the HBO miniseries.  )

I hate winter, not because of the cold (when it actually is cold), but because the days are so short. It's only 4:30 and it feels like the day is over, and it was a lovely day. (I also hate that I can't fully enjoy having unseasonably nice weather, since I keep thinking about global warming.)

I finally watched Band of Brothers, and if it were a work of fiction I would only say I liked it very much. However, since it's supposed to be more than a work of fiction, I suppose it gets held do a higher standard. Over all, I (with my utter dis-knowledge about the subject at hand) still thought it was excellent. It was definitely enthralling to watch.
