My computer is baaaaack.

With Parts Falling Out of IT.

So, I call the IT guys and tell them what is going on.

IT: Does it still work

Me: yup

IT: Maybe you should keep the loaner for a week or so, just in case.

Me: yup

Me: One tiny little question, very minor really,,, what about the software issue on the loaner computer? I mean, I don't want to be any trouble here.

IT: Hhhhmmmm, maybe we should send you a CD with what you need?

me: yup

Won't I look good going through the airports, I'm soooo important that I need, not one, but two computers. My job is so big it won't fit into just one. Why back up important information when you can have a back up computer.

I'm off to the hardware store now for some black duct tape and JB Weld. I have silver duct tape at the house, but I feel that the higher tinsel strength that you get with black out weights the higher speed rating on the silver. And why JB Weld, in case I need to put any of the parts back in.

If you had read your HORRORscope you would have been prepared for this:

A delivery of some kind that you were expecting to come from far away might be delayed, causing you to wonder if it might have been lost. It hasn't - it's just delayed. Unfortunately, there's not much you can do but wait. Mechanical equipment could also go out of whack, necessitating calling in a repairman. This could set you back some and make you antsy. Try to find something else to do!


You forgot to mention the part about DHL trying to deliver it to a Cambodian family on the other side of town . . .

And IT said they were maybe sending a Dell repairman out next week . . .

I think you need to find something else to do . . . like move the furniture and buy a TV . . . maybe . . .

Damn IT people. Anti-social geeks, all of them. Oh, wait, I'm an IT person. Well, at least the description fits.

On the road again.

Since taking a new position this spring, I have enjoyed the lack of travel that came with the change flow of life. However, all good things seem short lived as I must now start traveling again on a somewhat regular basis's. The travel will be one to two nights a week during the summer months and then I can go back to less travel come the winter months when sales slow down and customers don't want to see me as much. And due to the lack of a computer to travel with, up loading pictures will come at less regular intervals for present time. And just for the record...I flipp'in snowed on me Wednesday....Snow in June. I have pictures to prove it. Stay tuned.

On the topic of kids

And we are obviously buying less and conscious of all our choices - escaping the consumerism of elaborate do-it-yourself decor and prepared cuisine, the soccer mom mystique, and the bored, lazy, 'gimme' kids. Sometimes a quote comes along that really fits the way you think and live. This is one of those quotes, and the best part is that it comes from my DW. When you spoil you kids with love and a learning environment, no problem. I do believe that some parents do really take care of their kids and teach them to be strong non-whining adults that work to support themselves and intern teach the next generation to do the same. Then there is the rest of the parents that are raising whining think that they deserve everything but don't want to work for it spoiled brats that will complain about the government full time, but are the first ones there with their hands out and still think the should get more.... assbites! Then again some people complain about the way we raise our k
