A new day is always, well, new

So, I responded to the data recovery people with a regretful "decline" and explained I couldn't afford it. I got a call from them and they are very good folks and willing to work with me; they won't start the work until March (when my raise and my bonus come through), and I can set up an easy payment plan, from two to six months (the six months one means an extra 10%, if I go that route), and that I think I can work with. So yay. Hooray for good customer service! I think the main things I want to retrieve, and I hope are retrieved, are just various songs that I downloaded ages ago from the old WinMX (which never worked on later versions of Windows, once Windows 3.0 went by the wayside), songs that you just can't find anywhere. Well, I suppose I COULD, if I worked at it, BUT...

It does mean I can't load my iPod for a while, but I have something like 6000 songs or more on it now (I do love the iPod Classic; I'm not even using half of its capability, and that includes all of Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, as well), so I think I can handle it by moving around on playlists for a couple of months. Of course, some of that 6000 is my Christmas playlist, but, well. So I won't use the shuffle setting at all.

I realized this week I'm glad that framefolly has introduced me to Veronica Mars, simply because I started reading a new Dr. Who book, Judgement of the Judoon, and the young gal who's helping Doc Ten in this book is a 17-year-old blonde girl named Nikki Jupiter, who helps her ex-cop dad in his private investigations at their Jupiter Detective Agency. Hee.

I accidentally put classic Star Trek season 3 on my Netflix list instead of Deep Space Nine season 3, so now I'm watching some of the worst episodes in Star Trek history, which are on Disc 1 -- Spock's Brain, Paradise Syndrome, and And The Children Shall Lead. It does have the bright spot of Enterprise Incident, at least.

I still have the headache I woke up with. At least I slept last night -- Nyquil does that when you're not actually sick, apparently. I think it's sinus related, though.

I have to go hang up clothes.

Well, it certainly has its high hilarity/cheese factor. "Brain and brain! What is brain!?"

I always enjoy "Gamesters." Another one with that high cheese factor. "Fifty quatloos!" Hee.

I'm glad that you've worked out a deal with the data-recovery people! [hugs]

(And I'm glad the cookies got there -- I apologize that they're only chocolate chip, but I am sadly limited in my repertoire.)

Well, they're yummy! Which chocolate do you use, BTW, if you don't mind sharing?

Ghiradelli dark chocolate. And I add a couple of teaspoons of ginger to the cookie dough, just for grins. ;-)

Can't beat good chocolate! (Ah, that's the snap in them! They are the yum!)

Star Trek S3, proof the writers were doing some good drugs.

glad you're able to work out something with the data people
