I couldn’t sleep last night at all so 1am found me in our local Wal-Mart doing some shopping. There was a surprising amount of people in there for being so late. I bought some blank Memorex dual-layer Blu-Ray discs to back up my computer, an extra TOSLINK cable, and some Equate cold medicine. I’ve had an aggravating runny nose for a few days now. I hope and pray I’m not getting sick.
When I got to the only cashier open, I moaned. The only line to checkout was full of people. I resigned myself to a long wait which went by surprisingly faster that I thought it would. “Always the pessimist,” I mumbled to myself as I walked out the door headed to my car. “Look on the bright side of things sometimes, Andrew!”
I spent the next few hours backing up my computer to Blu-Ray discs as Maggie slept on the floor under my computer desk by my feet..By that time, I was ready for bed as I burned the last disc and put my computer to sleep. Maggie followed me around the house as I turned off every light and headed for bed. I heard her go outside to potty and then soon she was curled up beside me in the bed after a short grooming session..
Happy Birthday to us All!
Dad showed up earlier yesterday to bring me some more of Charlie's left over birthday cake. I have a fond weakness for the icing on store bought birthday cakes.
“It was lazy of me to just get Charlie a Lowes gift card, wasn’t it?” I asked my father as we sat on my couch watching the local weather channel.
“No,” my father said. “He was already scheming as to the light fixture he was going to buy with it,” my father told me with a chuckle.
I felt much better after hearing that.
The Whole Wheat Bread Debacle…
“Mom?” I carefully asked my mother yesterday. “The whole wheat bread wasn’t so good. Just get me some of that old fashioned Sunbeam white bread.”
“Do you want ground beef again this week?” she then asked me.
“Yes,” I replied, “I am going to make some more hamburgers.”
My mother asked me a dozen more questions as she furiously wrote down the answers in true secretary fashion,
Listening to Paula Cole… “Courage.”
