Almost back to normal – Traffic is much better. Grocery stores are not littered with people and Starbucks is back to their non-controversial white cup. The holiday must be over! Yay! Since January is my birthday month, it is the start of the high holy days!
Speaking of Starbucks – The baristas wear name tags. Some of the names I can’t pronounce. Some of them are those unusual names made popular by crazy-ass stars. This week there were two new guys – Phil and Eugene. That was a kickback to my youth. I went to school with kids who had those names! I can even pronounce them!
WordPress what have you done? – More changes. They think they are “for the better.” Ha! I am not convinced. Aside from learning to re-navigate they took away the word count for blog posts on the Reader. Now I don’t know if posts are two sentences or 2000 words. I liked that feature because sometimes I’m in a hurry and sometimes I’m not.
Staying with computers – I had an update done (mysteriously) overnight. All my settings changed. I had to find where to access the setting (key words changed too) and reset. I also have to sign in every time I walk away even for a potty break. I have lost hours relearning things I thought I knew. Boogers! I get the feeling the IT folks are completing 2015 goals so they can get raises.
The weather outside is frightful! – After a historic December with temperatures running a record-breaking 10 degrees above average, winter has moved in. I forgot how cold 35 degrees feels and it gets colder than that here. Time for the fleece! I need a hot chocolate! With whipped cream! And mini-marshmallows!
So how was your week?
