I just got back from seeing Cloverfield. If you haven't seen it yet and are trying to decide if it's worth it, it is! It's extremely well done. I don't really want to go into specifics because I went into it without seeing or hearing anything about it besides a short teaser trailer, and it's best that way. The less you know about it beforehand, the better.

Plus there was a teaser trailer for the next Star Trek movie!!! :D

Computer issue

books - jackpot
I posted this in a computer help community, but I'll post it here as well in case any of you can help me.

The color on my computer is messed up. On the desktop, internet explorer, and pictures pasted into Word, the color looks normal. But in Photoshop and in the computer's default photo viewer, the color is wrong. This prevents me from being able to make graphics in Photoshop because I don't know what the color will actually look like, and it's annoying when I'm just simply trying to view pictures. How can I fix it? Here's some information about my computer:

Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00GHz
1.87 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 7100 / NVIDIA nForce 630i

Here's a screencap of how the color messes up.Collapse )

Lack of entries

books - jackpot
Did I mention that I have a new computer? I got a new computer a week or two ago. I love Windows Vista! But it still doesn't have internet because I can't afford a wireless card for it yet. (I'm writing from my husband's laptop now.) So I only get on here for a few minutes at a time, mostly just to check my e-mail and MTS2 and transfer any new Sims downloads that I want over to my new computer. I actually started making journal entries in a Word document on my new computer instead of writing over here. I don't know how long it will be until I get a wireless internet card, but I hope it's soon!

PS: I chose this icon because I'm watching Buffy season 6 for the first time and last night I saw the episode Seeing Red. I cried.

The Mists of Avalon

Arthur Conan Doyle

The Beekeeper's Apprentice
Laurie R. King

The Jungle Books
Rudyard Kipling

Shoebox Project

books - jackpot
Oh my.

Because I adore the Marauders and because shoebox_addict's username constantly reminds me that I've been missing out on something that 9,613 Marauder fans have apparently fallen in love with, I have finally read part one of The Shoebox Project. My goodness, it's brilliant! I was hooked from the very beginning. If the rest of it is anywhere near as good, there will be another "Shoebox Addict" around here.

One question, though. I see that the interests section lists Remus/Sirius. Can I assume there will be slashiness to come? If so, how much? I picked up on the subtext in part one, but I can deal with stuff like that. Do they actually get together later on?

(no subject)

I just saw Alvin and the Chipmunks in the theater. It was actually pretty darn cute. I enjoyed it. I still want to see Sweeny Todd because I love musicals, but I'm worried about the intense violence. Of course, David has no interest in seeing it, which probably means I won't see it in the theater.

And now he wants the laptop back so I have to finish.
