I've calmed down now.....
This morning is behind me now. Hopefully I can download a good spyware "thingy" and figure out what's going on inside this piece of machinery that is suppose to help "relax" me. Let me just say this, The closest I ever get to looking at porn is the HNT photos I view on other blogs...LOL. (as per Brico's comment to my morning Bitch session over my computer). Is a computer that is nearly 4 years old really considered "elderly" now?? sheesh.
It just figures as much. Technology is passing right by me. For instance, I have a cam-corder that I purchased in 2000 when my Grand daughter was born. It's a Sony. Been a great cam-corder too. The battery is long shot and for that matter just plain missing. I when to a reputable camera shop here called Van's Photos. Inquiring on how I could purchase a new battery for it, the sales rep politely informed me that this particular cam-corder is now obsolete. It's been replaced by the "newer" models. A very nice model too I must say. However, I do not have a mere $485 to purchase said cam-corder, even with their 20% down lay-a-way. Being utterly disappointed, I left the store. Guess I'll have to start shopping around for a new one. I so wanted to have that battery replaced in time to video tape my Grand daughter on Dec 20th during her kindergarten Christmas assembly. I don't see a miracle happening here. I guess still photos will have to do. I am hoping against all hope that I can have a new cam-corder before the arrival of my new grandson due Jan 4th (or sooner we hope). Time will tell.
I did get off my lazy ass this morning and leave the apartment. My daughter the hairstylist has been on me repeatedly to allow her to "trim" my straggly hair as she calls it. "It's no sense having long hair if you constantly having it looking like a rat's nest" she tells me. I went through my stages of hair styles over the years let me tell you. I'd show you some of the hair styles but I don't have any of them on my computer. I'll try to post a picture here of my hair recently then show you what it looks like now with my web cam. Then you tell me if it looks like she cut more than 3 inches off. I saw the floor when she was through. It really didn't appear to me that she cut any more than that off. I can just feel the difference.
The web cam doesn't take the best pictures and this isn't a good comparison, but it's all I have for now. It's still long which is good. I don't look very good with short hair. I have no perm, this is all my natural curl. It can be a royal pain in the butt if I don't have hair products in it to "control" it. Just ask my Daughter the "professional" who tells me repeatedly that I need to "do something with my hair". I'm so very proud of her because she knows her shit and is great at it. She's the top seller at her salon. She's been doing hair now since she graduated High School in 1997. I just get lazy and hate to "mess" with it I guess.
Well enough about that. It's time to sign off . I am picking my Grand daughter up from Day-Care to take her Christmas shopping for my Daughter. Wal-Mart...he we come...the 5 year old is looking for gifts.
