I've been working like mad to get the last of the orders packed up this weekend so I can mail them out at long last. Unfortunately, this has resulted in me getting a nasty paper cut down the length of my index finger, which makes it hard to type. I'd say that I just can't catch a break, but my vision is almost back to normal again, so I'm rather relieved about that.
Since I am in pain and all cranky, I decided to cop a meme that's been making its way through the blogosphere where you are supposed to list five things on your mind just now. Apparently this does not include what you're blogging "just now" or else it would be pretty redundant.
Five Things On My Mind Just Now...
Bleh. now what's on my mind is wishing that the stuff on my mind wasn't so depressing.
Switching to happier thoughts...
If you are planning on joining up with a great group of bloggers at Davecago3 (August 9th) or Dave Louis (August 16th), please let me know ASAP. I'll be leaving soon, and need to get reservations and name lanyards taken care of before I go! Just send a message to me at email@example.com and I'll get you hooked up with all the details.
Hmmm... now I'm thinking that I need a before-bedtime pudding break...
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
when is Davewaukee going down? I will be there for that.
I too wish I had a week with nothing to do. It’s nothing but a dream in my world though. Ummm pudding break sounds awesome but I forgot to buy pudding. I’m a bad bad girl. 🙁
Amen on the job thing. I would never make fun of anyone’s career for the same reason. The thing that ticks me off, which is sort of off-topic but sort of not, is when non working asstards make fun of the mentally challenged bag boys at my local Ralph’s grocery store. I just want to scream, “At least he HAS a job and takes pride in it!”.
PS – sorry that my phone was a slut again today.
So when do we get David-Kingdom? Us folks in England need you too!
Glad your eyes are feeling better, and it was great inadvertently talking to you yesterday. Again. Apparently, when Hilly puts her phone in the tray of her car, you’re automatically set to dial.
the other day as i was picking up my lunch i was talking on the phone saying, “i would seriously love to vacation in thailand. what an awesome destination.” the guy who always waits on me smiled and offered to be my personal tour guide. bet he would do it for you as well.
Dave, The way your luck is running,stay indoors this week,wrapped in a duvet.
I’ve never understood the job thing either. I don’t care for comics who make fun of where someone works.
Are actually able to relax and do nothing when you get the chance? I learned a valuable bit of information about myself the last beach vacation we took. I can.not.relax. My brain can’t switch off..annoying.
I must admit that my former laptop fans came on significantly more, and much louder, than my current one…they are all so different. Have you used the compressed air to clean out the vents?
Glad your eye is feeling better.
I’ve been feeling crazed with stuff to do myself lately but hearing your list puts it in perspective. Sounds like you need an assistant! Just let me know if you’re ever hiring. 😉
Just sent you an e-mail on this, guess I should have checked here first.
I’ll be there!
I’m illiterate so not reading the comments above, but did you try running hardware diags on your MBP? I doubt they turn up anything, but ya never know. Also, could be overheating because the battery is bad or you have one of the bad power cords. At the end of my time at work two days ago the following components were replaced because of my MBP overheating: power cord, power brick, battery, logic board, hard drive, top case. Next up was going to be memory that went bad because of all the overheating issues. As of Friday it still just stopped working whenever it felt like and other times it overheated and kicked the fan on. Good times, good times.
Please hurry up and have Dave York so we can take you to the one Johnny Rockets in the nation that promises it has your Streamliner in stock. (We asked today just for you. 🙂
Regarding the browser issue, I just wish ALL OF THEM would get on the same effing page! Ugh! The bane of our existence.
Glad your vision is better. : )
After what my husband has been through this weekend (and he’s stuck overnight as we speak because yet another flight was canceled) I seriously don’t know how you handle all the travel. Nerve wracking.
Dave I have the same thing on my MacBook. I found istat on the apple page I dare say that you know about it, if you don’t have a look.
Katie and I should both be there.
Let me know if you´re going to Thailand. I have tons of info you might need. Good hotels etc.
My MacBook Pro heats up a lot, too. I have the CoreDuo 2.0 Ghz model from April 2006. It works great, but gets way hot on the left side. The right side is warm, but not as egg-cooking hot like the left side gets.
It took me a while, but I finally became Microsoft-free earlier this year via the Linux route, and haven’t had this much fun on a computer since I had a Mac in 1985. IE8-beta2 is just now trying to catch up to Safari circa 2005, and there’s no need to bother worrying about how a page looks in IE. Anyone using it will just have to suffer.
