Mayhem sayings

Mayhem has been trash talking the Lego Star Wars game a lot lately

“I’m too good to stop. Watch me smash you”

“I’m the Jedi master. I master Jedi. You’re nothing storm troopers”

“I’m gonna power force you back to nowhere”

“You can’t catch me, I am made of awesome.”

My favorite of his little sayings is something he started recently. He comes up to me and says

“Look out mama! There is a hug behind you”

Which is possibly the most adorable thing ever to date.


In other news I am trying to copy my 120GB WD passport contents over to my new 320GB WD Passport drive. BUT!

The Passports both insist on being connected directly to the laptop, not to a USB hub.

BUT! That doesn’t matter because the laptop absolutely cannot cope with having 2 WD Passports connected at once. It’s willing to see both of them but not copy between them.

SO! I have to use my ancient back up EHD, which is the hard drive from my old desktop, now in a case to convert it to an EHD. It doesn’t mind being connected to a USB hub and the laptop doesn’t mind copying to it from a WD or vice versa.

Meaning I have to copy everything twice.

AND! Because I have everything (scrap-51GB & photos-13GB) tagged in ACDSee, I have to use it to do the copying or I lose all my tagging. So it takes more than three times as long to copy (I know because I did direct drag & drop & realized I lost my tags)

And I have to do it twice.



Even now, 18 hours later, with about 3/4 of the FIRST round of copying done, I am still wondering if those darn tags are worth it. I got a little carried away when I started tagging. I am a kit scrapper. Apart from alphas & stitches I don’t pull much from other kits. I don’t really need to know how many red crumpled ribbons I have. If this copy reaches the 24 hour mark I think I may need to intervene & either decide to retag or do a quick purge of my supplies.

This is ridiculous.
