What? It actually worked? I am... surprised. I started downloading a movie called "Holes" last night, as one of the items on George's list, from this site, because I couldn't find a torrent of it, and, well, good luck trying to find the Disney movie when the name could clearly be taken another way. The last piece finished downloading just now, but to my dismay, trying to extract it prompted me to enter a password, which I couldn't see anywhere on the site. I did not expect "langacademy.net" to work, and yet it did. The AVI file extracted and plays just as it should, so that was a lucky guess, I suppose. Further to that though, I actually emailed George last night about some things, one of which was his list of movies. I would really like it if he could come over here for another couple hours by or before the 15th, to give him what new files I have, and also to bake one or two things for him and his family, because it's been a while since I've done that. Unfortunately, he didn't respond today, which doesn't come as a surprise, so maybe when I get home from work tonight I'll email his mom instead, as she could at least tell him to get back to me, and we could make arrangements that way. I would strongly prefer he come over here instead of her, especially because he's now at home looking for another job, but I don't know what will happen. Speaking of her though, she finally saw the comment I left with the recipe for no-bake cookies, and I finally noticed that last night. I can't remember when I left the comment, but she actually made a new post, saying that "Well, after reading this message, I immediately thought to myself, ‘Well, sorry [me], but this just won’t do! This cannot just sit here in comments, it would rarely be seen! So, my dear friend you are getting a post", apparently my message was long, but she posted it in its entirety anyway, including the part at the beginning where I said "George told me that you said these were your favorite kind of cookie, and as I recall, they’re what he brought home the first time, in case you’d like to try making them as well (apologies for the lax formatting – I’m not sure if HTML is allowed in comments).", and amusingly switched the way I had written "Pinch (1/8 tsp) salt". I think it makes more sense that way, because it says "A pinch (which is one-eighth of a teaspoon) of salt)", but she switched it to "(1/8 tsp) Pinch salt", and yes, the extra space is there, and yes, that is one of the first things I noticed.
Other than that though, today has been short, because I slept in until 4, which happened only because I wasn't able to sleep in yesterday, due to how much it warmed up overnight. Thankfully, it appears things should be going back to normal within the next few days, but it will remain to be seen if anything more interesting happens then. One random note to include at the end of this entry is that the bubbles in my mouth have now gone back to being a little sweet, but no longer salty, which is an improvement. To counter that, however, I've been eating too many of my granola bars, which I should've expected when I bought so many. I might be able to restrain myself for a short time at first, but eventually there will come the point where I say "Screw it", and eat as many as possible in one go, in order to get rid of them as quickly as possible. In unrelated news, one of the four new people Melissa hired last week works until midnight tonight, with Mary there as well, presumably to show them how to close the dining room, which should be fun. It's after 7 though, which means I'll need to head out in about fifteen minutes, and I want to finish registering for and poke around my MediaFire account for a bit to see what it's like. Maybe even upload a file or two, if I can think of any important enough~
