Gettin' Techie, Gettin' Chunky and Ready for Friday

Sweet Mama Hazel... it's finally Friday. That this day has arrived without Bossman mysteriously disapearing from the face of the earth, his car abandoned in the creek on a dark, secluded mountain road, the driver's side door left open as if he'd been suddenly snatched up by aliens... is a miraculous fact.

Oh. My. God. I've never met ANYONE who is NEVER happy before.

He lives on a golf course, has a company car, gets to travel part of the time on company expense and although he's being forced to take a week furlough every month, he's getting reimbursed for a percentage of it by unemployment. He's got a wife who is home all day to take care of all his appointments, cook for him, do all his laundry and.. let's be honest.. generally put up with his bullcrap on a daily basis.

And yet, he walks past my office, his hand to his forehead at least three times a day muttering, "gaaaaaaaaawdammit. dammit. gaaaaaaawdammit. mother. dammit. gaaaaaaaawdammit."

It makes me want to shove my rose scented Home Interiors candle jar up his butt... loosen things up and improve the general atmosphere of his innards.

Sorry, I don't mean to dwell on his lack o' personality but it amazes me that people go through life like that.


Last night, I followed Miss Kittypuss around with the camera, trying to get a picture for ya'll that showed how she's gone from the waif-like little kitten I found in the Asylum parking lot, to the ginormous, pot-bellied demon she's become. The Amazon finally took a chance with her life and held the kitty for a picture. When I went to upload it last night, I discovered that I accidentally removed the Nikon software from my computer when I cleaned it up a couple weeks ago.


I'll try to work on that this weekend.

Other plans for the weekend include moving the new and improved dog lot up and over a few feet so that the oil man can get to the barrell thingie when cold weather hits. I also want to see how much it's going to cost to put paving stones down on the middle third of it, I have to go to Lowe's tonight anyway to return the air conditioner I bought for Ma, so I'll price them up then.

That's right. The air conditioner we fought back and forth about for months is still sitting, unopened in the living room floor. I've been using it as an end table. She never would let me install it, so screw it. I'm taking it back and using the money to take the other two mutts to the vet to get them caught up on their shots. When warm weather returns, I plan to move the big unit out of the living room and into the kitchen window, where it will be closer to Ma's room and me and T.A. won't have to sit directly in front of the stupid thing wrapped up under blankets all the time.

Also? I'm as excited as a five year old on Christmas morning to be checking the mail every day for my brand new graphics card. My geekness has reached a new level. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I'm even going to install it myself. This is new territory for me. If you don't hear from me anymore after this weekend, you'll know I blew my computer up.

It can't be that hard.. right?

Ah well. I suppose I should at least try to look like I'm doing some actual work. We'll talk again soon. Ya'll have an awesometastic Friday.

Later Taters!

Can't wait to see the pic of the kittypuss! I bet she's grown a bunch since we saw her last!

I've never installed a graphics card, but I doubt you'll have any trouble. If my then-9-year-old daughter could install a sound card in our old pos-du jour, I know you can do this.

Long live geekiness!

Oooh - I wanna know what the graphics card allows you to do! I don't know anything about things like that.
