My new computer is awesome. It is very fast. But it is missing some of the programs that I use…the ones that I didn’t know I used all the time until they weren’t there anymore. “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.” But that is why they invented the Help Desk. I’m making a nice list of everything that they didn’t transfer over, and tomorrow they will get a phone call from me demanding these programs be installed immediately. A lot of the things that are missing are things I could remedy myself, but the tech people get really pissy when you take matters into your own hands. For example, my CD burner on my computer was not installed. Kind of a problem, since I needed it a little while ago. I could install it right now, but I prefer to not get yelled at by the tech people. My only complaint about the computer itself is that the operating system is Windows XP…the professional edition. I have XP on my pretty home laptop, but it’s the regular po’ folks edition. I was trying to end a program earlier, but XP wanted nothing to do with it. It tried to shut down my computer when I attempted to end the program. XP professional edition is, I’ve decided, a vengeful operating system. We need to learn to get along, because I am a vengeful computer user. I didn’t mention in my entry from yesterday that my stomach currently hates me. Well, it does. I woke up yesterday very tired, and my stomach was nauseous. I didn’t think too much of it, because I am the type of person who feels sick to her stomach when she doesn’t get enough sleep. However, this feeling normally goes away after I’ve been awake for an hour. Yesterday, it did not. In fact, the nausea has continued over to today. I don’t feel sick in any other way. I didn’t sleep very well last night, maybe that has something to do with it. It wasn’t for lack of trying; I went straight to bed as soon as I got home from work. Anyway, here’s to hoping that I sleep well tonight! My bed hasn’t really been my friend lately, though. I think I need to take these sleeping matters into my own hands – maybe a shot or two of whiskey will do it. Blech, just typing that sounds so gross. I won’t be doing that. Maybe Jackie or Bella will hit me over the head. Hmm…something to think about. This picture is from last weekend’s Pub Crawl. Isn’t Mike so cute? I picked up the visors for our team to wear. Jackie, Bella and Christi were also wearing them. We got lots of compliments. I was told that we won Best Team, but since we were stuck in the line outside of the last bar, none of us could go up on the stage to accept it. So they gave our award to Team Mullet. Whatever. If they want our sloppy seconds, so be it.
