+ 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

So [ profile] kryptongirl alluded to this in my second-to-last post about my flight home. The Boston-LA-Sydney-Perth-Sydney-San Francisco-Boston trip went through so many goddamn revisions that I maybe accidentally brought along the wrong rev of my itinerary and arrived at the airport about twenty minutes after my flight took off. OOPS. Seventy five dollars (and a milkshake) and some stress about how United needs to get over themselves w/r/t suitcase weight (ffs I will pay more for a bag over 50 pounds! WAY MORE! I have lived out of this for a month!) I arrived at home kind of sheepish about that mixup.

I have had social plans every day since I came home last Monday and I'm starting to burn out sort of spectacularly. The Boy, Andrew, family, family, The Boy, The Boy's family, Andrew... Saturday the boy's family was in town from AZ so now only did I get to run the gauntlet of meeting the family again, we walked all over Boston. All my flats were at mom's for some reason though so I walked like 3 miles in 2-inch heels, my thighs will never forgive me as long as I live and breathe. I don't have plans tomorrow but I DO have a dr's appt and they're probably going to draw blood so I am going to zonk myself out on valium and have my brother drive me home. Wednesday I have plans and then Thursday and Friday I am back in Maryland, will this job never end I lie I kind of love how hectic my life is. Thank god I don't have a dog.

[ profile] mythrai & other perfume peeps I need to know if Conjure Oils is bottleworthy because there are like 2 scents that are ABSOLUTELY ME and if it is I'm gonna pop 'em on the Xmas list. Or is it chancy and I should start with all the pips?

So I don't really grok beauty/fashion. My mom is like the lowest maintenance person around and I got a heaping dose of that, so this year my New Year's Resolution was a sort of unclear amorphous "I want to learn how to look pretty! with the hair and the makeup and the wardrobe and the sophistication and someone do this for me oh god"

I've had limited success.
