A woman on a mission – I bought a new sweatshirt. The neck tags drove me crazy (ok, so it’s a short putt). I took it off and looked at them. There were three tags (brand, size and washing instructions) and all were scratchy. Why would they put them there? Most care instructions are in the side seam these days. If I had a brand it would be stamped at the back of the neck or if that’s not possible, a nice soft satin tag sewn in so it didn’t irritate. I went through all my sweaters and cut them all out. (“Out you damn tag” – so said Lady Macbeth.)
What a doofus! — That’s me! I keep notes all week to write the Random 5. When I go to write the blurbs, I can’t understand the notes. It’s a collection of abstract words that are mean nothing. I stopped one-word notes years ago. There are at least 5 words and I still don’t remember my intent. *bangs head on desk*
New equipment – I hate any computer change. It never goes well. I’m required to learn new things. I forget to update the new passwords on my multi-page cheat sheet (almost as thick as the old Sears catalog). Something happens. We got a new router. All the reviews said it was easy to install. Technically it was. What you needed to do after hooking it up, was to visit their website and let it do it automatically. However… (There always is one!)…they don’t give you the website address. It took a phone call with the multi-layers of call routing to manage and the inevitable wait for a techie. All that took longer than the hook-up. All is good now.
Toe cleavage seriously? – One of the bloggers I follow mentioned what her top search phrase was for her blog. Out of curiosity I checked mine. It’s “toe cleavage.” I did an obscure post several years ago about it because at the time I didn’t know it had a name. Looks like there are more people who don’t know what it is. I hope they are not too disappointed.
Don’t let your fingers do the talking – Lately my mind and my fingers have been disconnected. I can think faster than I type. Add in auto correct which has no idea what I’m trying to say and I’ve noticed some of my comments are quite bizarre. If I left an odd note on your blog, please disregard. Sometimes when I reread it, I can’t figure out what I was trying to say (see item #2).
So how was your week?
