It's a Gorgeous Day!

It's absolutely gorgeous outside! When I went to check the mail today, I literally could not walk—the wind propelled me into an effortless jog. The outside thermometer resides at an unrealistic 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I'm not much of an outside person—dark closets are more my style—but on these rare days when the vast outside world is neither too excruciatingly hot nor too unbearably cold, I feel like I can fly!

Though the windy world calls for me, I am sitting comfortably in our family room, at the rarely-used family computer. This is because my laptop, which has served me well (at least ten percent of the time) for the past year or so, has met its end. Perhaps it can be revived, or the files salvaged, but for the time being it is gone—crashed—and there is really not much we can do about it. On Thursday it started its never-ending cycle of error screen, then rebooting, then error screen, then rebooting, that will not stop unless the computer is manually shut down. We don't know where we will go from here, because I can't use this computer forever. I'd probably make it crash too.

So what have I been up to lately? Drainage and disorders may tear me down... but I'm still alive and well, and eagerly awaiting what the future has in store. I've done a little maintenance around the blog recently, revising my profile and bio, as can be seen to the right of this entry, and also adding a Status page, which you really should check out now and then. To those who might be interested, I've recently started using my Twitter account. If you want to follow or interact with me there, feel free to do so. I also re-launched my fan site for the upcoming video game, Kid Icarus: Uprising. It will be stressful to maintain the site, but I never should have quit it in the first place.

Today is March 6, and therefore the official release date of Frank Peretti's new novel, Illusion. It is the first book he has released in seven years. I would be outside on the porch reading it right now if my review copy had arrived on time—that being today. For now, I'm reading 1,000 Days by Jonathan Falwell, which I'm going through at a slow pace, as I find it fascinating and I don't want to rush through it. It is hard for me to speed-read through a nonfiction book, though often that's the only way I can get through them.

So that's an update on my life. What's been new in yours? Keep checking back for updates, because before too long I'll be hosting more giveaways! I know you like free stuff. Don't you deny it.

Until next time, farewell!
