My Six month evaluation went well, and I am no longer on probation. I am a regular employee. That means I can take vacation and sick time. I also had my working hours adjusted, now my hours are 8 till 4:30 instead of 8:30 – 5. It will help with the traffic situation a little.
I was walking the dogs this morning, thinking that I don’t have much to post about lately, that I’m dipping through a period of poor blog attitude. Not so much a poor attitude, but a blight of topics. I need to take more pictures, because, as you know, pictures make the post!
I put a radio in the bathroom, and when I wake up and shave, I’ve been listening to BBC World Have Your Say and on Facebook HERE. This morning they were talking about “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”> This 14 year old boy in Saudi Arabia stabbed his friend in a fight 10 years ago and the victim was paralyzed from the waist down. The punishment is to be paralyzed from the waist down. I could not imagine the horror of going to the doctor to be paralyzed. Although I have had repeat dreams where I reported to my old boss and was surprised to find she expected me to be cheerfully executed.
Anyway, such topics are not the purpose of this blog.
Today is hump day. I am looking forward to the weekend already. I want to go diving.
I found this picture of old advertisements for Twitter, Skype Facebook and YouTube.Cool Huh! Wish I could find a larger version (hint hint) Yep, this is what it was like when we wuz kids… All you damn youngsters got it easy!
Un F- Believably, our internet went down Saturday night. Called the provider, went through the phone rigamarole, they gotta come over. Of course. Didn’t I just go through this? Don’t I have a new modem?
When the internet went down, I was checking out the Facebook buttons I added, and was working on Twitter. I was waiting for a page to load, when The Wife said, “Is the internet down?” Sho nuff, twas. I don’t know how long it woulda taken me to notice. It must have just gone down seconds before she started using her computer.
So anyway Sunday with no internet was kinda noticeable. No internet, no NFL football. We went to the brother and sister in laws for part of the day, but still missed the internet while at home. It’s kid of a constant thing, phone, tablet, computer, TV, all hooked up to the internet.. It’s become a must-have item. The title of this post post mentions food and water, but internet access is more like air, something I need whenever I want it.
I could go on and on, but I’m posting this from work, a habit I DO NOT want to get into.
But here’s a photo from work, just outside my door in the afternoon, eerie shadows.
Have a good week!
I think I successfully installed the Facebook plugin, but I can’t see anything different.
So I’m posting this to see if I can see anything.
