Another awesome week at The Lake has passed, and I feel much refreshed.  My laptop died on Friday, with a series of grinds and screeches coming from the hard drive and the CD drive refusing to shut properly then refusing to open properly.  One sale item at Best Buy later, I am writing this on a new laptop that is scaled to my mobile needs – it can play games if it has to, but it would rather write.  This is a good thing.

Speaking of writing, the sad news from my laptop woes is that I lost a great character background I’d written for a new World of Darkness game and I lost the 2nd zombie story, which I worked on while at the lake but didn’t have a chance to offload anywhere given the lack of interwebs.  Ah, well, you win some, you lose some.  This just gives me a chance to rewrite it, after all.
