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.
