New Hard Drive

My new 2.5″ laptop hard drive arrived today and thankfully the installation went without a hitch. Well, that’s not completely true. I was a bit stumped temporarily when I couldn’t find the set of torx screwdriver heads that I needed to remove the original hard drive from the mounting bracket. Luckily the Leatherman Micra that my father gave me for Christmas last year has a tool that was the right size to get the screws out. Thanks Dad!

Go East Young Man

My friend Jesse began his long road trip east to New Jersey this morning. He’s headed to Jersey City where he’ll be teaching high school English as part of the Teach for America program. I was originally planning to accompany him on his trip, but with work being as hectic as it is right now I just couldn’t get away. It was great to hang out with him last night though.

Lunch Musings

It’s always nice when Taco Time gets your Veggie Burrito right. Last time I went by their nearest they slipped me a meat burrito when I wasn’t looking. I was moderately annoyed at the time, but I salvaged what I could and moved on to my mexi-fries (little Mexican flavored potato cylinders). Today’s meal was much less eventful.

Last night for the first time ever I watched 90% of a Survivor episode. I missed the big scuffle between the ladies because I was adjusting the antenna (sorry Mary), but rest of the show was still entertaining enough to keep me watching. And yes, I’m planning on tuning in for the final episode. Even though I haven’t been tuning in regularly, I know (and have been talking to) enough people that have been watching that I didn’t have any problems jumping right in.
