Let the weekly randomness begin denove (um, again):

First of all I just found out that apparently I'm not a Gemini, but a Taurus according to the guy who wants to revamp the zodiac (and this only child liked thinking he was under the sign of the twins -- now it's all bull), and H is apparently something call an Ophiuchus now too (which seems kinda snakey to me).

ah, this was a Mom week. Tuesday and Wednesday she had doctors appointments, and with the snow I had to rush to shovel both days before her appointments. Actually, for the Wednesday snow fall, I didn't even get around to shoveling my own house till Thursday because of dealing with Mom.

---

On the plus side, the virus ridden laptop that I've been working on (and off) for the last ... ah, well over a year I really lost track of how long, now has a new OS (although I still kept it XP). I got all the files off I wanted to save, wiped the drive and reinstalled XP. Then it took 3 days of downloading updates, but I'm sure the virus that had embedded into the OS is now gone.

I mentioned last week that I'm back to drip coffee. Since cinnamon is one of my favorite spices, I couldn't resist picking up a cinnamon and spice flavored coffee to try. Um, I decided it's not the coffee I want when I first wake up, but for later in the day it makes a nice beverage.

Just proving my craziness, last couple nights the cinnamon and spice coffee has been a bedtime drink for me. Yes, I'm one of those people whom caffeine doesn't seem to have an effect on.

What else? Oh, I think I need to do a check that Mom's identity hasn't been stolen; but given how panicky she gets, I want to do it behind her back. Yesterday she was very upset. Apparently, 5 different insurance agents called her wanting to give quotes saying she contacted them with her name *and* address saying she had bought a new car and wanted a quote on the insurance.

Um, right now we are having trouble buying food much less cars.

I also mentioned I think my modem is dying. The temp solution I've been using is not to turn it off. I'm pulling the ethernet cables to disconnect this computer from the internet when I want it off line right now. The plus side of this solution is I have instant internet the moment I put the cable back in, no waiting for the modem to reconnect to the internet (as it no longer always does when I us its power switch to turn it off and on).

I'm sitting here staring at the blinking cursor and a dog just put her head in my lap. Those are two signs that it's time to move on.

Later.
