Quark, Thinking


The bad: Both room light and lamp light burnt out at the same time. I needed to make replacements in the dark. At least I had the idea to turn my computer monitor on.

The funny: I called stormer23 yesterday on a whim. I got her voicemail, so I left a message, then sent a TXT message. Today, her brother was fooling with the phone and she told him to stop. Being a little brother, he didn't just stop, but he threw the phone at her. It ended up hitting the button and calling the last number received, which was me. So, my phone was ringing with an unfamiliar number (since I didn't memorize it). I went to answer it, but it had hung up by then, so I called it back. It turned out to be her, and we talked for about 3 minutes before returning to our AIM chat with each other.

The worrying: Dad's in the hospital. His back has been hurting for the entire week and it's to the point where he can't walk. Mom took him on her way to work. He's been admited. Prayer is needed.

The funny: While letting the dogs in, I couldn't find Katie. I could hear her, but I couldn't find her anywhere in the yard. I finally spotted her in the NEIGHBOR'S yard. I couldn't find the hole she got through for the longest time. I had to go out front, go around to the neighbor's yard, coax her to me, grab her, lift her over the fence, then set her down and let her run to the front door. *sighs* Dogs...

The frustrating: I lost my package of breath strips. (The generic version of those Listerine Pocket Packs.)

The frustrating: I was doing the wash and couldn't find the little measuring scoop for the detergent. I decided to just pick the whole bucket up, dump some in, and hope for the best. THEN, I find the scoop sitting in the bucket behind the bleach. I found out I used WAY too much. I hope the washer doesn't explode or something.

The good: I've gotten my friends page down to skip=120 now. Considering that it updates all the time and I didn't get online all yesterday, that's pretty good.

The bad: Computer's being a complete butt right now.

The cool: This page about the Enterprise and a wind tunnel.

So bored and no Xanth book to read... Still waiting for Cube Route in paperback. Compensating by reading Dark Mirror again. Great book.

I hate "morning" dogs...

Dang dogs wanted me to let them out at about 3:30 AM, so I did that and thought that would hold them for the rest of the morning. Apparently, it didn't, because when my mom came home, they'd pooped and peed all over the dining room floor. So she let them out, while I cleaned up the crap. She told me they go out at 7 AM no matter what, and I had slept through that. So then, half an hour later, we go to let them in and Katie's nowhere to be found. It takes about a half an hour out of our lives looking for her. She ended up in the yard of the house 3 doors down. Grrr...

Never get "morning" dogs if you're not a "morning" person.

In medical news...

Dad apparently has a herniated disk in his back. He may or may not need surgery and that surgery would consist of either removing the disk or putting it back in place.

And I have freakin' athlete's foot!
