on to happier things
i got a big box of techie joy today from my Tech Fairy. he never asks for anything in return, just sends me stuff he's got around that i need or want. i'm a very lucky person to have someone like him in my life. plus he reads me. i have to love that.
i love all of you that read me.
so i've been playing with my new toys. including a fucking huge external hard drive. the thing itself is small, but the capacity is ginormous. once doc fixes my mouse pad, i can copy all the flotsam over to it. yay!!
speaking of the mouse pad, i reinstalled the codecs and set that all up, now i just need doc to show me how to turn the service on. i know roughly how to do it but i can't find the button i need, so instead of frustrating myself, i'll just wait for doc to get up.
tonight i copied the contents of Red's phone to my laptop so i can transfer it all to a flash drive (which i got plenty of today). her phone is full. she was having trouble taking pictures at the slam because it was so full.
she's leaving thursday or friday now. instead of the weekend. i'm so bummed. it's been so fun having a friend and waking back up to myself. and she's a really nice girl. where am i going to find another friend like her? let alone a room mate.
i'm getting doc up in 15 minutes. he got a lot of sleep today, so he's getting up early, so he tells me. we'll see. so i'm making coffee for him.
and me, let's be honest here. yesterday and this morning i didn't think i was going to be able to drink coffee anymore because i kept throwing up when i drank it. even when i ate. so i didn't drink any for a while and sipped on cola for a couple of days to settle my stomach. tonight, about an hour ago i decided to try a cup and i feel great.
i've been saying that a lot lately, i fell great. it's so different. maybe i just needed someone to stimulate my brain. Red is good at that. we have very different views on some things, so she makes me think.
it was dusty today. not too bad, but in the back yard, which is mostly dirt, it got really dusty. and my nose is not happy. but my head isn't stuffed, so i don't mind blowing my nose every ten minutes.
i'm content to just sniff, but doc will hear it and tell me to blow my nose. actually he'll yell it from his bedroom. and i don't want to wake him up prematurely.
oh yeah, the house is filling up with the smell of coffee. yummy. my cup of reheated is almost gone. and we have a fresh jug of milk to open for it. oh happiness and bliss.
i'm doing okay without the weed. had a terrible headache yesterday (i know, for my birthday, right?). but today has been fine. and i didn't sleep through the day. i took one three hour nap and that was it. so that gave me 8 hours sleep in 48. not bad.
okay, time to wake the beast. the coffee just finished brewing, perfect timing. and the song is over. cool.
have a great night.
