FUCKING COMPUTER IS FUCKING TOAST. ERRORS WITH MY GNOME POWER MANAGER. TRIED FRESH INSTALL. GOT NEWERRIRABOUT NO LIVE FILE SYSTEM OR SOMETHING?

research implies it may not be total system fail, just a fuckload of fail, combined with my backup sd of my OS being fouled. which, it worked fineacouple installs ago.

but i can't make a new install card on hq's fucking computer. it wasn't enough that my machine was having physical failure at all possible points, now I have system fail too. I can not fix this with duct tape. I cannot, apparently, fix this with anything I have immediately at hand, until I have access to a machinethat can make a bootableflash. the baby thinks we're playing clue. I'mmaget drunk. fuckfuckfuckfuck

finally have eveything for the finks' costumes. pobo finally decided on a fairy, because she found wings while we were looking for kitty ears to go with the kitty suit she decided today was her costume instead of the cowgirl she said she was gonna be.

we get to trick or treat TWICE, because tomorrow during the day, there's a downtown trick or treat thing going on with like 60 stores participating.

the finks are sleeping at night now. pobo is taking a damn nap right now, so she might push til like 11 pm, but most nights this week she's been out by like 8. hell, she probably could sleep through from now if I was willing to get up at 4 am.

the finks have discovered the soundtrack to Cabaret now, and both love 'Don't tell mama'

I'm eating better now that I am up during the day, too, which is good.

I'm trying to decide whether to upgrade to the new ubuntu that dropped today. I think I'd have to re-do all the little tweaks and hacks and sit I did to get this system to work the way I want it, with the 2 drives and sit, so I am hesitant. I don't even remember everything I did to get shit working the way it is now. but maybe video etc would work on the new install without so much tweaking?

totally rocking an amanda palmer obsession.

also, found a kickass crochet clutch purse, one side is black with a white skull, te other is reversed, both with a pink ribbn on their heads, lined with skeleton fabric. It was 1.99 and my eee fits in it. I haz cute goff laptop clutch!

I installed some shit so stinky would have games while we were in the car with no internet, and now, huzzah, I lost my applications menu. I've uninstalled a bunch of shit, and am scouring the net for how to fix this one simply, but it is not looking simple. If I had a usb loaded with ubuntu, i would wipe and reinstall right now, just to be done fucking with it for a minute. and we're leaving town like any hour now, so I can't call my linux guy.


ETA FIXED LIKE A MOTHERFUCK!
