Updates: Shiny and Savory

This past week, I ran up to Philly one night to catch up with some old high school friends. One of them picked a noodle shop run by an immigrant from Japan who made some delicious ramen. Cup Noodle this is not. Although, I could have gone for the extra spicy version of Gates of Hell. What I had was delicious and had a nice undercurrent, but I love trying the super spicy stuff. ;)

And, in case you didn't catch it on this week's discussion post (about Apple's late Back to School sale and how Macs and Windows are sharing a number of similarities these days), I finally picked up my shiny new computer that, God willing, will last me all through law school and beyond with zero problems. (Who are we kidding? Mac or not, this is technology. There's no such thing as a problem-free existence. Although, if I stay away from the video editing for a while, I might stand a chance of not crashing this one regularly. I may or may not have been responsible for several unscheduled restarts in my college computer lab back in the day. >.>)



The Drafter reminded me of ACID, a YA "sci-fi suspense thriller" I read last summer. This is not a good thing. There were too many logic gaps, the MC is too stupid to live at times, and the ending was just...illogical and forced and no. The review for Walk on Earth a Stranger will be up next week, so I won't go into too much detail, but suffice it to say: I liked it. :)

That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Beastly Bones by William Ritter! In which there are dragons. :)


  1. I hope you like your MacBook :) I love mine, I actually just got a new one after six years when my old one (used when I got it) finally broke beyond the worth of repairing it. They're good machines and I definitely think it will last you a while hopefully haha ;)

    1. I definitely hope it'll last me a good long while! And I'm liking it thus far, though I'm still retraining my fingers to shift from PC keyboard to Macbook keyboard. The track pad is different from my usual and the Ctrl/Apple key is in a different spot. (And no delete/end/home keys. I didn't think I used them that much, but never know until it's gone, right?)

    2. The keyboard is probably one of the hardest things that I had to adjust to. Though I wasn't swatting from Windows either I just had one of those old IMacs before my laptop. Our Windows computer has been delegated to my brothers' use now ;)
