- Apparently, Ol’ Bessie (aka, Cheap Acer – the term-of-no-endearment Mrs. jasdye gave her) was running on empty. The old hard drive just ain’t what it used to be. An expensive inpatient stay at the Geek Squad informed me of that. Now I have to try to figure if I want to spend another couple bills fixing her or just start from scratch and buy a more reliable machine. Which I may or may not take with me to work (why should I endanger my machine for their work?, I keep asking myself. To no avail. I make a lousy conversationalist). In any case, I’m really concerned about my iTunes. Can I transfer all those tunes via my iPod into another computer? How does that work with the DRM’s? Does anybody know? Stupid, stupid, stupid. I need to back everything up from now on out eight times over.
- I also lost my phone. I’m turning into Homer Simpson in things digital. Funny thing is, I haven’t stored most of the numbers there anywhere else and I barely remember my own number. AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I’m such a block-head.
- Mrs. jasdye and I have been looking for a new church now for a bit. Which has been hard for me, since my old church is like family. Old family, in quite a few cases. But, we’re both really liking this church. It’s about a mile from our house, it’s multi-cultural (in some ways more so than our last – which is hard to find in the Evangelical tradition), has a congregation that is social/economically-mixed (also like our last church – with a mixture of homeless, yuppies, college students, hipsters, etc.), is laid back but mixes high-church liturgy (which is a mix that I’m pretty comfortable with and have been trying to get my old church to embrace), and speaks our language in terms of the redemptive work of God in the whole of the world through Jesus’ death and resurrection. The one weak spot that we’ve noticed is that we would be considered in the older end of the church’s spectrum, that being a very small window for the most part. But, like ourselves, it seems like the church is also booming out some babies and young’uns. So, we’ll see and try to keep posted.
