Our Wilson

Below is a pic of our water cooler. Because I had taken to putting the microwave food cover on top of it as a place to keep it, it seemed to need a face, so I drew one in a moment of playfulness. After I had done that I realized it reminded me of the Tom Hanks movie Castaway, you know the basketball he called Wilson…I think ‘Our Wilson’ will fair a bit better and is definitely a cool dude for sure.

Phone Wallpaper

I know many of you are keen to know what goes on when I’m alone late at night with my phone. I stare at the wallpaper on it. Here it is for you lonely people to stare at too… (Quote stolen and plagiarized shamelessly from Terry Gilliam, long live Monty Python!)

Actually looks better here than on my phone.

PC World Article

Checked my computer at this link…story has been brewing outside the main stream media for awhile but as the deadline gets closer the chatter will intensify I reckon.

Okay, so was a bit bored. If you type in “Zerg rush” in the Google search box it produces a swarm of marauding “O’s” which inevitably destroy virtually everything on the search-results page. Or, type in “do a barrel roll” for a nice queasy feeling…or the now infamous futile search for chuck norris, type “Find Chuck Norris” and hit the “I’m feeling Lucky” button.

Marvelous Monday

Well, what a difference a day makes! Monday was the complete opposite of Sunday that’s why I called this post ‘Marvelous Monday’
To start the day off right my new Samsung Galaxy phone arrived and finally it’s a big enough phone I can see that dang thing. Even has a regular keyboard for texting.
The government decided to share some money in the mail, cool! Suffice it to say one of those new fancy jets they are buying might be a bit shy of a full tank I reckon*wink*.
Since I was on a roll I decided to have a crack at the error box that keeps coming up from the last iTunes update, nailed that too.
Because lots of other good things happened as the day progressed I figured I should buy a couple of lottery tickets too. Just checked them, no luck, probably that was pushing a bit huh.

Sucky Sunday

Yes, Sucky Sunday it was indeed. Where do I start…well spent a good part of ten hours in network hell. Did other things in between but kept coming back to it. Turns out that my ISP had somehow reset the modem back to the default I reckon, will be calling them later to investigate. Bottom line was the booster/repeater I got wasn’t connected any longer because of it. After many happy hours of getting through it, figuring it out and learning along the way I thought I had it licked. After sleeping on it though I realize now that I don’t have it fixed at all do I. I’m pretty sure the main modem and repeater should show up separately on the list of wi-fi available in the neighbourhood*sigh*. Okay, deal with that later. Other computer related annoyances surrounding the above was when I was trying to connect to the repeater. Only have IE on the laptop and it kept putting http etc in front of the numbers I wanted and throwing it up as a Bling search sometimes too*strewth!*…Finally downloaded Firefox and skinned that cat. While I was waiting for something I figured I’d do the obligatory updates, turns out the laptop had the wrong date on it, how I have no idea. If I was thinking quicker I should have looked at tomorrows newspapers but remember it’s sucky not sharp Sunday.

What else, oh yes footy. Manchester Utd scored four goals and still only got a point from the game (4-4 tie with Everton), this allows City to get within three points now at the top, and this could make the game they play against each other on the 30th of April the title decider, either way it’ll be a very important game. In other sports the Canucks got unceremoniously dumped out of the playoffs Sunday night, in the first round too, best team in the NHL is now out and off to the golf course early.

In the garden my plan was to put sand down and level the paving slabs around the Chimera, thought I done good until the better ‘alf critiqued it. Not straight, not level she said and proceeded to instruct me on how to do it properly*sigh*. She’s right of course it isn’t good enough. The other puttering project was to use my fancy new two wheeled wheelbarrow to get some fill from the front neighbourhood pile for the lower part in the back, raise it up a bit so it’s not so swampy etc. After I figured out how to do this without the dog escaping I marched purposefully off to the front. The pile was like bleedin’ cement and I suppose frozen probably so no luck there. When I returned I discovered the cat had escaped and the dog was chasing him around the yard*sheesh!*. This brings me to Earth Day, didn’t even realize until later that this was today. What did I do? Not a whole lot I’m afraid, about all I can say is that I freed sand from it’s confinement in sand bags to recycle as a base for the paving slabs. Does that count? Probably not but that’s all I got.

To finish off the day the better ‘alf wakes me up at 11:45pm to get the password for the wireless. Remember, I was playing with it all day*lol*. I actually looked at the clock and thought, only 15mins to go and Sucky Sunday will be finally over.
