At a family dinner tonight the subject of GPS units came up. Dad has 2 and offered to loan one to Mom for an upcoming trip. The need to update them in order to make sure that they remain accurate was being discussed.
“Keep them up to date and they’re fine. They’re not going to make people drive over a cliff or anything.” Dad remarked.
“No. That’s just natural selection.” my brother noted.
A coworker who has been struggling with his faith shared that lately it seems that all of the books he’s had to pick are spiritually based. His Higher Power, he says, is obviously sending him a message.
Lately all the books I’ve picked have been about murder, true crime stories and how to get around the law.
What’s my Higher Power trying to tell me?
Somebody ordered Why You Shouldn’t Eat Your Boogers and Other Useless and Gross Information About Your Body.
I would have thought that was self-evident. And as long as we’re talking about things that we shouldn’t do, how about:
How to Fossilize Your Hamster.
Um, how does someone come up with the idea of doing this to his pet? Do you think he just woke up one morning after listening to the hamster wheel all night and thought “I know what I’ll do. I’ll fossilize the darn thing. Then I can have both the rodent and uninterrupted sleep.”
Bad day to be a hamster.
I became fed up with Movable Type. It turns out that the “mandatory update” included bundled “Pro” software, etc. that I neither wanted nor needed. I couldn’t get it to configure correctly over my old installation, which then wasn’t available for re-installation. Rather than kill myself I decided to take another look at WordPress. As it turns out, I have a program (Fantastico De Luxe for them what are interested) that came with my hosting package, and it did all of the work for me. Every last bit of it.
So here you see me. Obviously I’ll be doing a lot of work on this site as time permits. For those who might be worried, I still have the archives from my old blog stashed away somewhere if needed.
Life, it seems, is good.
