Well, I finally got my laptop back! Brought it in because it kept shutting down as I would be using it.. turns out it was just dust in the fan that was heating up the computer. Weird though because my display screen looks a bit more low res than before. Resolution’s set to the highest, not sure if it’s some graphics card issue or whatever but text looks a bit low-res and “feathered”.. Weird. At least it’s working, but definitely was out of a computer for a better part of the week. :/
This Past Week on Just a Lil’ Lost…
- Reviewed The Bling Ring by Nancy Jo Sales – the book that was inspired by the movie that was inspired by the Vanity Fair article.
- Recapped this past week’s episode of Under the Dome (aka The LOST parallel episode)
- Closing up the blog tour, I had the awesome opportunity to share a guest post by author Darren Hynes and exclusively premiere the book trailer for Creeps!
- Last week, you guys had a chance to win one of 6 Quotemarks courtesy of Book Depository! Time to go pick some winners.. 🙂 The answer last week of the book I was Quotemarking was Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s (or Sorceror’s) Stone.
The Troop by Nick Cutter | For read & review from the publisher via Netgalley
Backstreet Boys’ In a World Like This and Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories | I haven’t bought CDs in a long time.. but after the amazing BSB concert on Wednesday (recap/review to come tomorrow!) and having that damn catchy Get Lucky song stuck in my head, I had to use some newly re-found Christmas gift cards to buy these two. Plus, I own all the other BSB actual CDs… need to keep up the collection 😉
I also went a little crazy shopping at the new outlet mall in “Toronto”. (I say “Toronto” because it’s not QUITE right in the city, but it’s close enough I suppose.) As you can see, I was most excited about the Kate Spade outlet since I <3 KS. (This is what I picked up there… great deals!)
