It’s alive~~~~~~~~

re-fitted my computer this afternoon… man, those things can keep so much dust and other nasty stuff. And damn these Windows stuff, not saying that the new card is compatible… and then saying my audio driver wasn’t found, when it was RIGHT THERE where it’s supposed to be.

Then funny thing, after I put the video card in, Windows didn’t want to start. Looked it up online after typing the error number, and one of the tips was to take the hard disk out, and put it back in… and it worked. PCs are such weird phenomena. But now is finally over…

I kept the laptop my dad lent me, ha!

And, as you can see from one of my posts before, I listened to a LOT of music online.

And I also bought more books… LOL. I found the third tome of the Millennium trilogy – The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest [Paperback][Kindle Version]… and the original Swedish title, Luftslottet som Sprängdes which is The Air Castle that Blew Up. *sighs* translations… translations.

I also bought Åsa Larsson’s Aurora Boreal (wtf?) from the original Swedish title Solstorm… which is literally Sun Storm like the actual English title. *sighs* anyway…

I also bought Yasunari Kawabata’s En el Lago (Mizuumi, The Lake), which I’m about to start. And… Cuentos Inolvidables according to Julio Cortazar, which included shorts by Capote, Borges, Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, Henry James, Tolstoi, Juan Carlos Onetti, Felisberto Hernandez, Leonora Carrington and Katherine Mansfield… which well, I found kind of boring.

And finally read Benjamin Button… but I enjoyed the movie better. To be honest, Benjamin Button was kind of a jerk in the book. I didn’t like him at all, but the story started out much more logical than in the film. How do people manage to make a 3hr film of a barely 50pg. book? LOL
