My goodness. It's been forever since I've been able to post. My 1-year old computer became infected with a creepy/crawly virus...and how odd, I thought...because I PAY YEARLY FOR VIRUS PROTECTION FROM BEST BUY, SO WHY DID THIS HAPPEN!!!

Stifle yourself, woman.

Anyway...the Geek Squad wasn't very efficient either. They couldn't find my contract online, even thought I had it there IN MY HAND. Then they complained that I hadn't brought my power cord in with the computer WHEN I WAS TOLD NOT TO! And so it sat for 2 weeks untouched. EVEN THOUGHT THEY HAD BOXES OF THE SAME COMPUTER SITTING THERE 20 FEET AWAY. ALL WITH POWER CORDS!

I'm not sure a POX is strong enough to vent my frustration.

And then, even though we got a store manager involved, they STILL CHARGED ME $230 TO SAVE MY DATA AND REMOVE THE VIRUSES. FOR WHICH, LET ME REPEAT....I PAY YEARLY FOR PROTECTION AGAINST GETTING!

Then there's work. This is the first day that I'm sitting in my house...in daylight...for over 70 days. Our software application for the British military is in the full throes of System Integration and Test and we're all working obscene hours. Many nights I've been at work so late that I just get a hotel room at midnight. It's nights like that that make me want to get one of our young software developers and get them to slip code into one of the tank's and have it POINT TOWARD BEST BUY!

So...that's how I am. Mostly just tired and cranky. Haven't baked/cooked anything in months.
In fact, I'm learning Pavlovian reactions to the microwave dinging in 5:88 min/seconds (yes...the 5 and 8 buttons are the only ones working on our work microwave) for Lean Cuisine's Shrimp Alfredo. One misses the joy of eating a meal that doesn't have to have plastic peeled off first, and eat off of a real plate with silverware that doesn't twang if you bend it.

Love you!

PS: I still can't access this site at work, so PMs will--sadly--not be answered promptly. Since I'm always at work lately.
