Andrea decided to do some upgrading to the server the other night. It involved a sort of Frankenstein operation taking parts from her old computer, my old one, and her sister’s all stitched together into one. Come to find out, the only spare video card we had was too old to be compatible with the new motherboard. So everything had to go back the way it was!
I get a kick out of that picture though, because there’s a total of two working computers, three monitors three disassembled computers laying around. And she’s on the laptop of all things!
Just another day in the life of a geek.
The main reason I detest cold weather is the flu season. All kinds of germs and bugs are out there and for some reason I seem to find them!
I’d managed to catch something a week and a half ago. Miserable! Temp, sore throat, blah-blah… I spent my money, went to the doctor, got medicine and got better. Stayed home til the doctor said I wasn’t contagious, then went back out into the public.
Now, less than two weeks later I get sick again! Back to the doctor, more medicine… I woke up at 4 a.m. tired, but wide awake. THAT is frustrating. I laid there for an hour talking to the cat. And she looked up at me like she understood my misery, precious thing!
All of this because sick people don’t stay home. Now, I understand that being in a bubble is impossible. But have you ever walked thru a store and there is a person coughing and sneezing and no concern over covering their mouth? Dragging their sick kids out in a restaurant with snot running down their face, cheeks flushed and even a perfect stranger like me can tell they don’t feel good? Oh, my favorite… People who leave their used kleenex in the shopping cart!? WHAT is all this about?
I realize I am a germ-a-phobic. But it’s freaking ridiculous! And after spending $150 on medicine and dr office visits in the past ten days, I think I have a right to bitch! I’d rather walk into a place of business and see a sign telling me they are under-staffed due to employees’ being gone with the flu than walk in and have some sick fool coughing all over me, my purchase or whatever!
Fuzz and I talked about this at 4 a.m. and she agreed with me! I love that cat!!!!
