Comments, Tornadoes, and Dying Hard Drives

Yeah, so, obviously, I don't really post here much anymore. Since I don't have that much to write about these days, I grew bored with blogging. A few days ago, I got a comment from Ferd asking me if I was okay. At first, I thought the question must've been about my absence from blogging so I replied that I was fine. A few minutes after, I realized that self-absorbed me had completely forgotten about the tornadoes that had recently gone through Minneapolis and that was probably what he was referring to! Oops! No, I didn't even notice the tornadoes for the most part. A friend of my mother's had been driving through South Minneapolis at the time and said there was quite a bit of storm damage in the area but, thankfully, that was the closest I or anybody I know got to it.

In other news, my hard drive is dying. (At least, I think it's the hard drive.) Every time I boot up the computer, it's a race against time to get anything done before the blue screen of death pops up. Since it's going to cost me $250+ to get it fixed, I've decided to just get a new (cheap) laptop and fix this one in October.

And, in much brighter news, I got tickets to Nine Inch Nail's Wave Goodbye tour in Chicago on August 28 & 29! These were stupidly hard to get because Trent Reznor is supposedly retiring NIN from touring after this. So, almost every hardcore fan (and a few *censoredcensoredcensored* scalpers) was trying to get tickets to one of the last ten shows in NYC, Chicago, and LA. Every show sold out within an hour. Apparently, this is the year I play superfan because I also decided to get tickets to the Pet Shop Boys shows in both Milwaukee and Minneapolis in September.

I'll end here before the blue screen of death pops up again.

I was worried about vivid dreams, and seeing things that scared you. (post of 8/8)
That, and your absence, made me think medical stuff.
Glad you're okay!

Ah, yes. That makes sense too! I'm sure that was just being in that hazy, half-asleep state.
