Stacking the Shelves - A Day Late and a Dollar Short
So Verizon came and hooked up Fios for us, but since it is a whole new network, I have naturally been having connectivity problems on my computer. The main computer is my hubby's. My computer is hooked up by wireless. I happened to pick up a wireless keyboard and mouse for my work laptop as I work downstairs. Unfortunately, the software had to be loaded to the computer via a disc and my laptop has no CD drive. You need a plug in in order to use a disc. And since it is a work computer, they kind of frown on installing external software anyway. So, I took the plug in keyboard and mouse from upstairs and decided to install the wireless keyboard and mouse upstairs, which unfortunately coincided with me trying to get the new network set up. It has taken me two days.
And as I have not read any manga recently to post, plus I worked overtime all weekend long, I figure I will do a Stacking the Shelves post even though it is not so timely.
Nothing but issues lately.
My last STS post was December 30 (Really?), so here is what I've picked up in 2013.

A Princess for Christmas - I saw this enough on TV this holiday season, however, all the external shots were filmed at Castelul Peles in Sinaia in Romania, which I've been to, so I just had to pick it up.
On the Second Day of Christmas - Starring Mark Ruffalo and, as if that wasn't reason enough, it was like $6.00.
Bridesmaids - Guilty Pleasure - It's like a train wreck that I can't look away from and this one is the unrated version, so it will be even more unpleasant. Still Chris O'Dowd more than makes up for it as the charming Irish police officer.
So that is it for this week. I have a few books and some manga I am waiting on that haven't come in yet, but I will share them when I do. Until then, I wish you all lots of good things in your mailbox!!
