K-State Dog Attacks KU Pillow
It is Friday, the last one in September 2006. I am writing this to Microsoft Word in the hopes that my computer connection will be fixed today and I will copy this and paste it to my Blog site. Yesterday about noon my computer could not refresh a page because it had lost the connection. At different times during the day it came back on for a moment and downloaded messages but without the connection I cannot get to Yahoo Mail to read them. I know they are there because at one time when this whole shebang was running they appeared and then as I clicked on them the system lost the connection.
Yes, this is the new AT&T high-speed hook up. Some deal! It is supposed to be cheap but it is also supposed to work. The Gateway Modem shot craps and a new one made it all better. So much for the warning from the service center that if it was my wiring it would cost $60.00 for the service call. You can bet your sweet #$% I would have got my $60.00 worth had it been a problem in my wiring. NOT!
I had just found out that there is a file I need to be able to use the DVD to make copies. It is called Roxio and now that I need it, I can’t go out and find a download to use it. I tried to use CD’s to copy the photos off my computer but at about 200 per CD I would need about 20 at about an hour per to download.
OK, enough of the being Petty. The other night Barbara and I ate at a Chinese restaurant and she got a fortune in her cookie that said to not be petty. I will try to be the gregarious guy that is ubiquitous (everywhere) and handsome. Well, one or two out of the three isn’t all that bad.
The Washington Post's "Mensa Invitational" asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting or changing one letter to create a new word, and then to supply an appropriate definition for the new word. Here are my favorites:
BOZONE: The substance surrounding stupid people that stop bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.
CASHTRATION: The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.
INTAXICATION: Euphoria at getting a tax refund from the IRS, which lasts until you realise it was your money to start with.
OSTEOPORNOSIS: A degenerate disease.
REINTARNATION: Coming back to life as a hillbilly. (I think Jed Clampett said this one but I can’tprove it.)
I wonder if sex and money is surrounding my thougts as I get older. At least I think my sense of humor is OK. I went to a Psychiatrist and he said I needed to avoid stress, so I didn’t open his bills when they came.
The picture at the top of this blog is my pal Grissy easting a KU pillow my Mother-in-law sent me. Grissy has all that energy and every once in a while it leaks out and she just has to tear up something. Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of dogs.
Do your best and keep smiling. Make them wonder what you have been up to.
