Moved up to the Ferari and turns out the gear shift sticks, the steering column is loose and the windows won't roll down. The wagon ain't fancy, but she gets me there. Less parts, less to break back here at Life on Earth.
Marko gave me a very juicy bad word last week in an email. He was describing the beginning of term at his particular insane asylum (very much like my insane asylum) and he summed it up with:
"It's a clusterf--k." It's such a perfectly appropriate word that I regret not being able to spell it in full, over and over.
And so goes my first and second week of the fall term at Esteemed Post-Secondary Art Place, and so goes the comments situation at Beta Blogger, and my budget, and my Usual State of Serenity and Goodwill Towards Mankind and last, but not least, my PC, which is trying desperately to reach full dementia.
Blogging may get thin over the next while, but it's got priority over doing the dishes, washing my hair, paying my bills and otherwise conducting myself like a responsible adult. Remember playing "statues" as a kid? The game where someone took your hand and spun you around until you were nearly ready to throw up and then you had to freeze in place? Ok. You're too young to remember - or you had toys. Anyway, I'd describe the last couple of weeks as the first part of a game of "statues." The whirling part. And "they" aren't letting go for another couple weeks at least.
Meanwhile, at some point, Minor Deity, my IT friend from work, is going to set up the new PC.
Then, my friends, we are going to fervently pray that it is not a Beta. I say "we" because I credit you all with great compassion and kindness (far more than I, myself, possess). If all goes well, there should not be undue silence for long. AND Phelgmy! I'll be able to hear your audio posts!
Wish me luck. Please feel free to actually comment without resorting to being "anonymous."
I have hated not seeing your links on the new blog. I have hated not seeing your pictures. I have missed the exchange of comments between people. New links will be posted soon.
No place like home.
