This is a short one!
Sirens! — While I was on the computer, a loud horn went off. It repeated every few seconds. It was incredibly loud and terrifying. The computer said I was hacked and gave me a number to call. It said it was Microsoft but I didn’t believe it. I’ve had similar things happen without the noise and all I did was reboot. This time that didn’t work. I was feeling frantic. I have a service subscription for my newer laptop so I called them. As I suspected it was a fraud. I had to do a hard reboot (holding down the off button for what seemed like a long time) and reset. All was good. It erased cookies which means that I am not instantly recognized. WordPress wanted my first born to log in. It quickly recanted after it found out that my firstborn was a cat. I am somewhat computer savvy. This would be terrifying for someone who isn’t. It felt like someone would come through the computer with guns blazing. The techie shared some stories of people smashing their computers. Yes, it was that alarming.
Smells – This weekend we got together with family. I had agreed to make some more complicated ethnic dishes that my mom used to make. It’s a two-step process over two days. From my husband’s perspective, the problem was that one included cabbage of which he is not a fan. For two days the delightful (?) odor of cooked cabbage hung in the house. I’ll take that over cat farts any day! Or old people smell.
Sights – Inflatables are back! There is a neighborhood nearby that has young families. There are always inflatables in the yards for almost every occasion including St. Patrick’s Day. They are up for Christmas. It’s a sign of the season.
So how was your week?
