AVR News Update
Hello and Happy Sunday! 

So I'm still without a computer, but that should be remedied on Tuesday. My birthday is Thursday, so that will be a nice b-day pressie even though hubby already bought me a toaster oven. Something I've been wanting for a couple of years now. Anyway, I ordered a tower on Amazon, so with luck, it'll hook up and be ready for lift off. My luck this year has been shit so...*fingers crossed* Then I'm sure I'll have updates to do and after that, the work of installing all the programs I need from my old computer, like Norton and the printer and such. In the meantime, I've been having myself a Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon. My kids have stated they are close to staging an intervention. Piffle. I'm not obsessed or anything. Just basically computerless. Getting on hubby's laptop is so not the same as having my *own* stuff at my fingertips. It sucks and watching Buffy helps. Plus, you know, Spike. Nom nom nom! Though I'm just in Season 3 and he's not a full-time character yet. Still...*drools*

Sugarcube had 2 rounds of antibiotics in February and was not better so the vet did an x-ray. We found out she had bladder stones. Her surgery was Tuesday, she came home Weds and she appears to be doing fine. She does not like pills. They smell icky, so I don't blame her.

Our POS van is acting up. Again. Would someone just come and steal it for me? Then push it over a cliff? That would be great, thanks.

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

I did pick up a few, but I just don't have the patience to stay on this computer. 
Sorry, fellow book fiends.


  1. Yay I cannot wait for you to be connected again..just think this time next week you can be cooking in your toaster oven and chatting online! Happy Birthday week !!!!

    1. I'm up and running! Yay! Now I just need to clear off my countertops and select a spot for the toaster oven.

  2. You are having a run of bad luck. I hope things improve soon.I love my toaster oven; I use it much more than my regular oven but I'm only cooking for one and not a family. I hope Sugarcube is feeling better soon.Pills, blech.


    1. I totally am! It can stop. Like, right now. *grimace*

  3. Spike is mine !!! But I'll be magnanimous and let you use him until you have your new computer ;) And wait until you see him in season 5 of Angel ^^ I hope Sugarcube gets well soon. Have a great week !

    1. I needed him this week. Seriously. I'm not totally hip to Angel, but my son is going to watch it so I most likely will too. :)

  4. I wish I had time to revisit all my Buffy dvds bit I have too much reading to get done at the moment. Oh well, maybe next winter!

    1. I should be reading, but with my computer dead I can't write reviews, so...hey! There's an upside to a dead computer. Spike! :D

  5. Ahhh being computer-less would be rough. Hope it gets there soon and is perfect :D Happy almost birthday too!

    1. It has sucked. Royally. At least my hubby has a laptop I can use, but it's a pain in the ass. lol

  6. Spike is my fav too! He reminds of Billy Idol. Ooh la la. LOL
    Great news about a new computer and early Happy Birthday! Have fun.
