I have an appointment at the Apple store in the morning. My six-year-old MacBook has decided that I don't need a monitor. (It flashes once on startup and shows that it is sending the right signal, but then goes black. Zapping the PRAM, taking the battery out and resetting it that way - neither worked; booting with the Shift key down to put it in Safe Mode seemed to work for about thirty seconds, but then it shorted out again.)

Might very well buy a new computer tomorrow.

(On the plus side, I'm able to do target disk mode and pull files off, so if I do need a new computer, it'll be an easy setup; on the other hand, buying a new computer right now wasn't really something I had budgeted, so that's the opposite of awesome.

But I had a feeling I might need to buy a new one soon, because my computer is six years old, and that's a pretty good life for a laptop. And having a new one will be pretty sweet.)

ETA: Apparently the monitor is dying. So I bought a new computer! Makes sense. ;)

Atkins bar reviews!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - Not bad, but I want to put it in vanilla ice cream.
Chocolate Hazelnut Bar - HELL YES, but I love Nutella.
Caramel Chocolate Nut Rolls - YES. Although I was a bit iffy on them because I ate one right before I got sick once, but they're awesome.
Caramel Chocolate Peanut Nougat Bar - Pretty good.
Caramel Double Chocolate Crunch Bar - DAMNED GOOD
Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut Crunch Bar - DAMNED GOOD
Blueberry Almond Baked Square - Pretty good, but considering the carb count, not really worth it given how small it is.
Chocolate Chip Crisp Bar - HELL YES.
Cinnamon Bun Bar - Just like a real cinnamon bun, I only want about half of it and the rest is so incredibly sweet.
Cranberry Almond Bar - HELL YES.
Peanut Butter Fudge Crisp Bar - Damned good.
Caramel Nut Chew Bar - Pretty good.
Chocolate Caramel Mousse Bar - Good.
Chocolate Coconut Bar - HELL YES but I love coconut.
Nutty Fudge Brownie - HELL YES, it tastes like one of those Little Debbie brownies.
