So, this summer I have learned to fully embrace my "list person" tendencies as a result of a summer job requiring many such lists, and so I present what little is happening in my life in the form of, of course, a list:

- I bought a new Mac, which has resulted in me becoming very, very broke. I've never had to live paycheque-to-paycheque before, and I can safely say that I do not like it at all. However, my Mac is serving me very well at work, and I managed to get my boss' copy of Office for Mac for free without even asking, which was a masterpiece of manipulation on my part. ;) I have named my Mac Squishy and she is about a million times awesomer than the old craptop ever was. Too bad she and Mr. Pod (my free {!} iPod) aren't getting along well. :P

- My little brother bought a copy of Guitar Hero 2, and he and I have become obsessed with spending our spare time in the basement fighting for the controller. Tom is, as always, about 100 times better than me, but I've improved pretty significantly over the past few days, so I'm quite happy. It's even turned me into the fan of (gasp!) an Iron Maiden song.

- I had a fantastic time with a random assortment of friends last night. I decided to invite not a specific group of people but cool individuals from high school that I figured would get along. I was amazed at the connectons that I hadn't foreseen - the first two to arrive already knew each other, and two others had even been teammates for a local curling team. Even though it was mostly girls, estrogen didn't run high like it can when you get a bunch of girls. I take this as evidence that I have good taste in friends.

- The Tour de France ended today, and even though the guy I wanted to win ended up in second place, I can't begrudge Alberto Contador his win. It was his first Tour, after all, and he whupped his asshole teammate Levi Leipheimer's butt, which made me smile.
