Day 25 Minutes to Go

Day 25 | Your day, in great detail


Yeah, just skip this whole boring entry. I don’t think I have ever had such a dull and dreary Sunday. 


 Though, how would you even know what I’m saying is true? For all you know, I could have flown on my private Lear Jet to France for lunch, getting back home in time to watch the evening news. Yeah, I wish.


7:36am Cats woke me up making noise, rolled over and ignored them.

7:50 Dog barked to go out. Slag it, there goes my chance to sleep in. Up, dog out, go downstairs to feed cats and scoop poop. Turn on Dell, my laptop. Yes, Dell is his name, who was I to argue when he already came to me with his name engraved in two places upon his body? 

[Side note – funny story about Dell. He’s wearing an Autobot symbol, but I think he’s a Decepticon spy. I figured this out last summer. I had gone to my one girlfriend’s house, Val, to use her quick internet connection. Well, I found out later that Dell took over her entire network and wouldn’t let any other computer sign on. Not my fault, I have no idea how Dell is set up or what happened. I laugh about it now, but at that point, it was annoying. So, the next weekend, ik was at Patti’s house, sponging off her internet connection. And Dell did it again! Took over the network and wouldn’t let anyone else sign on the network. It took me a couple hours to fix it, I still don’t know what I did. Her network was working, but is now unsecured. Ah well, if you want to go out into the boonies and pirate Patti’s network, knock yourself out. But my point to this babble is that I have a bad, bad laptop.]

Got dressed, let dog lose so he can walk with me to the end of the drive to get the paper. It’s sprinkling lightly. Back in house, dog gets his cookie (Milkbone).

8:00 TV on. Check TV Topics for the news. You’d think I’m remember by now what channel to watch. Channel 4 – Weekend Wakeup. Start defrag.  Water plants. Connected to check mail. What is wrong with connection speed in the morning lately? Very slow. Wonder if something is wrong with the phone lines in the morning – maybe damp?
