okay I fixed my nook and now I am bored so I am looking at free books I can get. Gee I wonder why this one is for free:

Events manager Sylvie Smith is organizing a glittering fund-raising event: a wedding show in a stately home. She has even been roped into pretending to be a bride...a bride who's five months pregnant! The bride everyone is talking about! It should be every girl's dream to design a wedding with no expense spared, but it's not Sylvie's. Longbourne Court was her ancestral home, and she's just discovered that the new owner is Tom McFarlane-her baby's secret father. Now Tom's standing in front of her, looking at her bump....

The real mystery tbh is why 653 people gave it an average rating of 4.5 stars out of 5.

+ I paid Conjure Oils $26 bucks for a set of samples 3 weeks ago. Nary a peep since then. I understand that it's the Christmas season and all but um, it was November when I ordered these, what if they were a Christmas gift? (Well, they were, just. To me)

+ My nook has gone batshit fucking insane. They released a new firmware update recently and now it loses 10% of its battery power an hour (HELLO WHAT), it cannot open any of my books which means it fucking lost my library (oops lol!) and when I checked its storage capacity in the settings I found that it was using 78%!!!! of its disk space, which it thought was around 250 MB. UMMMMMMMMMMMMM actually the HDD is something like 1.28 GB so what is this being off by a fucking factor of five, hello. Anyway I called customer support and the customer support person told me very patiently that downloading books decreases the amount of storage space left on the Nook, so that was a lot of help. She asked me if I was near a Barnes and Noble store and I was like "well, I am actually at Boston's Logan Airport and they're gonna call my flight in like 20 minutes so let's go with 'no' and the quickfix solutions' which was apparently a factory reset.

Fun fact: you factory reset a nook by holding down the power button for 20 seconds. Six times. That was practically impossible to do on purpose (how can I not count to six and to twenty at the same time, omg my multitasking is so bad), I can see why they'd select it as something you couldn't possibly fuck up doing on your own.

So now I am downloading the next firmware update but this stupid hotel is totally incapable of wifi (like, I had to dick around with all sorts of things in order to force it to work on my laptop, no way am I gonna get the nook online), so I will have to download all the books over again myself? I guess? THAT'S COOL DUDES.

+ Also like what the fuck Violet Markette, let's talk about how cheap it is to make a perfume basically directly meant for me (honey, cream, vanilla, frankincense, and two types of pepper? ffffuuuuuuuu) (I learned her honey actually is awesome on me after it ages forever), name it after a dog, and then DONATE HALF THE PROCEEDS TO KEEPING PUPPIES WARM THIS WINTER. I am so fucking hopeless.


On the plus side, my boyfriend is awesome and amazing. He bought me a watch :,)

no matter what happens in our future or when we go our sperate ways you can know that right now in this moment i loved you // 3:15 pm
