Tuesday, March 16... Et Tu Brute?



Ok... my parents, in their retirement, have ended up with cooler geek toys than I have... and it's just not fair.! :D I mean, wireless router, flat panel monitors, new laptops... There was a day, not so long ago when I had to drag upgrades to their lonely 486 into their world. hahaha... ok, I'm not really upset... I'm happy they finally can appreciate better equipment. Of course, when ever I look at one of their computers... there's a freecell game occupying the screen... but I suspect they use the computers for more than freecell... don't they?

I want summer... well, I want spring... I want moisture to co-exist with nature and get the skin back on my hands... replacing whatever the hell you call this stuff I have now... I mean, squeeze some moisture lotion onto the table... hold my hand six inches above it... and the pores on my hands will suck the stuff through the air... hell, my hands were stuck to a Lubraderm display in the drug store the other day... like I was some weird Aloe version of Magneto... that's it... I'm a new X-Man... Wait... that would be a superhero based on moisturizer... there's gotta be too many bad jokes in there so screw that.

So just pushing on that Mirriam Webster (m-w.com) thing from yesterday... what a great way to send a message to someone that pisses you off...
If someone pushes your buttons... send 'em one of those Hallmark Greeting cards... but put this link in the "message of love" zone...
Warning!!!! This link goes directly to the sound file and will play immediately... (and it's nasty talk!)

Way back on March 13th... applelard and pasticcio celebrated birthdays...

Happy Birthday Jen... Although I'm not ever really likely to forgive Jen, applelard for taking down my fav icon of her (a beautiful picture of her hair), I can say that she's been on my list since very close the very begining of all this... and she's been a kind a considerate friend. I do hope this is a great year for you sugar... you deserve to walk with the winds of happiness blowing gently against your back.

Happy Birthday Angela... my lil'western girl... :D I will always appreciate your willingness to help me out with your Travel-Queen talents... and it is a great pleasure to see so much fun coming out in your journal. I do hope you have a wonderful year ahead and I look forward to holding on to our friendship. :D

Ok... here's a neat trick...

Windows XP.. .office 2000 on a relatively high end Toshiba laptop.

Run MS Excel and select "insert object"... scoll to PowerPoint Presentation and click that "show icon" check box...
So far so good?
Ok... now type anything in the slide show template...
and then, the fun part... click the "X" to close PowerPoint and return to Excel.

Bet you can't read all that white text on the dark blue background before the little fucker reboots completely.

the look on my littlest guys face when he presents a teeny little lego "special piece", broken... asking... "do you have any glue?" is at once beautifully moving... and painfully sad.

... and you just know... crazy glue will work for a bit... but it's destined for "gone".

It's totally calvin holding the broken propeller-beanie and asking his dad to fix it... totally.
