Too much help

apollymi: Kyo and Yuya with Kyo's sword, black background, no text (SDK**Kyo/Yuya: Still of the night)
I'm trying to type this up and type on various things, all with Roo being right fucking here in the middle of everything. In fact, at the moment, he's currently sitting on my right arm in the crook of my elbow. He's still not back to his full weight yet, though he's getting there quickly enough, but he's still heavy enough that my elbow cannot hold him up. I need to figure out a way to figure out his weight. Maybe if I buy up enough batteries to use the Wii remote and board again soon... Yeah, maybe that'll work.

I managed a little bit of writing, mainly because today has just been hella hectic and because I only had the iPad Mini with me today. I do have a keyboard for that one, but it doesn't always work out as well as using an actual keyboard. Some of the keys are in odd places or require I use special keys to utilize, and it throws off my groove.

So, yeah, here's a little dorky thing. I name most of my electronics. Basically, if it's a Mac of some sort, it has a name. So it breaks down like this:
iMac = Wanda
MacBook - Ripley
iPhone - KaiPhone
iPad 2 - Serenity
iPad Mini - Faraday

I think you can kind of tell which one is the newest of that lot. I mean, I bought Faraday used and with some minor damages, but he's been a good little iPad Mini so far. He's not the prettiest or the fastest or anything like that, but I wanted something small, portable, that used iOS, and that I could connect a Bluetooth keyboard to. Faraday won.

Randomly, I hate bank holidays. My money won't be in my account until tomorrow at this rate, and I had had every intention of going to the gym today to buy out my membership. But since my money didn't deposit, I couldn't do that. If it's there tomorrow like it should be, I'll go do that after the catering. I also will be doing the emissions test on the car, since that has to get done before my birthday and doing it nearly a month in advance will give me a chance to see if there are any issues with it that need to be worked on to keep it on the road before I pay to have the tag renewed by my birthday in February.

I just hope there aren't any actual issues that have to be fixed. Otherwise, it's going to be another GoFundMe campaign for the repairs. Or begging Mum for a loan... again. I don't like having to keep on doing that, especially when [personal profile] katsuko's family doesn't kick in any.

But that's an old rant, one that's not likely to change at any point in the foreseeable future. I'm gonna go try to get some actual writing done now. Later, all.
