It's not that I've lost my ardour for blogging, it's just that my computer has lost its ardour for living. I've been trying to keep busy now that I have so much spare time at hand, so often during the day I'll have moments of "this is going straight to the blog!". Everytime I start a new post though, my laptop goes POOF! and dies. It's because its fan is broken. Has been since May 2007 infact. Usually it's able to sustain a few hours, but as soon as I try uploading photos onto blogspot, facebook or myspace, it works itself up and overheats. Since there is no longer a functioning fan, it avoids self-combustion by automatically shutting down...but I guess I would rather that than being blown up along with the computer or getting shards of keyboard debris imbedded into my cheeks.

The above tragic story is basically the reason why I haven't been posting much. I have a few rolls of film to share, but uploading pictures is out of the question until I get a new laptop (speaking of which, is it gay for a girl to use a macbook..or does that association, fortunately, only apply for guys? Because macbooks are pretty, and I am not tech-savvy enough to judge a laptop any other way).
In better news, I just won an auction on ebay for a Nikon FM2! $161AUS plus shipping. I think that is a good deal..? If it isn't, you should probably tell me. I have a tendency to overbid on ebay, so you should rub it in for my own good. The camera body also comes with a polaroid back. I have no idea how to use that, but it sounds interesting. I am in a good mood.
Since the frequency of my computer's little seizures have been increasing recently, I've started reading again. I haven't really read for enjoyment since early highschool...My friend had a few coupons to a bookstore, but there was nothing she wanted, so she let me have them. I bought "Ham on Rye" by Charles Bukowski and "Norwegian Wood" by Haruki Murakami. They are meant to be classic 'coming of age' type novels aren't they? Well I am 18 in a week. I should have a debutante or something, or maybe it's just been too much Gossip Girl for me...
