O the humanity!

Computer_crashSorry I’ve been a little scarce in Blogtropolis, but my laptop is dying a painful death and I haven’t been on as much lately. I’m writing this on the computer in my secret underground lair, AKA The Basement. Actually, I don’t think the computer itself is dying, but the screen is going friend Simon tells me that it sounds like the inverter is going out, and that’s not an expensive fix. I’ll get it repaired eventually and use it as a backup, but in the meantime, I should have my brand new laptop by Friday! I found a good price for a new HP at TigerDirect, and I’m looking forward to a faster computer, as well as saying goodbye to Vista!

I hope you’ll all bear with me as I get things set up. I’m trying to keep up, but not doing very well at it. I’ll be back to what passes for normal soon. Since I’m not spending as much time on the computer, I’m getting more read and I practiced the piano for a while today. I’m doing pretty good with my workouts, and while doing that, listening to some of the CDs that I’ve gotten and haven’t cracked open yet. Good stuff like the Raveonettes, the Hives, the Fratellis, Garbage...lots of great music out there, and I’m loving it! I’m still keeping up on the news, too, of course. Right now, I just don’t feel much like sullying my blog with some of the idiocy I’m seeing. At the top of the list right now is Mike Huckabee and his Aw-shucks-I’m-just-a-simple-country-boy bullshit. But then I wasn’t going to write about any of that right now. I’ll save it up for later.

I will report that I stuck to my guns (haha, so to speak!) when it came to a month without mentioning Sarah Palin! I did not write a word about her here, and on Facebook, I posted nothing. I did make an occasional comment on someone else’s post, but despite the efforts of someone who shall remain nameless (*cough* Doug *cough*), I did not take the bait, and held true to my pledge. It was actually quite refreshing. I find that I’m actually rather bored with the broad now. Yeah yeah yeah, she made a Facebook entry (rather, her assbag assistant Mansour made one). Oh look, she tweeted. yawwwwwwn She just says stupid shit that everyone pays attention to, ignoring the fact that it’s stupid and it’s shit. If she decides to run for President, I’ll have plenty to say, I’m sure. For now, I find her a non-story.

Carry on, citizens. I’ll be back at full speed soon!



  1. i hear the national anthem in my head each time i see that test pattern.


  2. Beth, enjoy your free time from blog life while you have it. New computers are always fun, good deals even better. She who shall not be named, doesn't get discussed here often and you know I won't speak of her on my blog at all.

  3. Isn't it something how much actually gets done when your world revolves around something other than blogging. Hope your Today treats you well. Take care of you and yours always,

  4. I haven't been spending as much time on the computer either, so I'm a bit behind with everyone. Was February the month you chose to be Palin-free? February, as in the shortest month of the year? lol Well, good for you, anyway! She isn't worth expending that many brain cells on anyway. I got a new Toshiba last year, and I still marvel at it. Love, love, love it! And I really love Windows 7. I never used Vista -- still have XP on the desktop, but will always go with Win 7 now.

  5. I hope that laptop arrives today! It's just too frustrating to deal with a feisty computer. I should know. I should have replaced mine ages ago.

  6. Darn, now I have to share the table again :o(


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
