I’m just jumping in real quick from here at work to let everyone know that yes indeed I’m still alive. Work has been on the stressful side. Although one of the two case manager positions has been filled and I now have one CM to work for again, the CM is very much a rookie, brand new to the place. So that puts a higher burden on me to ‘know’ the things she needs to know. At the end of the day though I’m too tired to think and have been filling my time with mindless reality TV (I know many people were shocked but despite having a great voice and being absolutely gorgeous, Pia did come across as somewhat forgettable so I’m not outraged at her ouster) and reading mostly good books – I should start writing up reviews for them.
I recently purchased a couple of big ticket (for me) items. I got a brand new flat screen 41 inch LED (I think) TV and an I Pad. With the first – I was putting off getting a new TV, since I couldn’t really justify the reason for getting one as the old one I had seemed to be working fine. I figured it would blow up one day and then I could get another one. But it was taking the slow route. Dark scenes were becoming almost impossible to see anymore so I figured it was time and I could stop denying myself something I really wanted – heh, heh, heh. It’s already paid off as I had a couple of friends over from work on Saturday night and we watched The Outsider. They were both suitably impressed with both the movie and Tim Daly as a wounded gunslinger being nursed back to health by a beautiful young Amish widow. For those not in the know, this is one of those rare things, a REALLY GOOD movie based on a romance book – The Outsider by Penelope Williamson.
With the second, the Ipad, insanity came over me on that one. I decided I wanted, nay, I needed one, completely ignoring the fact that it’s a small electronic device. But by getting them both at the same time, I did get a really good deal. Now while the TV is quite easy to figure out, as long as I don’t try and do anything like setting the time or adjusting colours, it’s not so the same with the I Pad. The first hurdle was getting internet access. I have Wi-Fi at home but Son who is getting Married Ryan set it up and I’ve no idea what the password was. And Ryan didn’t either. So he and Future Daughter-in-law who we are calling Kara came over and fixed it. He didn’t know how to lock the Wi-Fi so as it stands now I gather, if someone wants to sit outside my home, they can steal my internet. Rye’s coming back though to fix that issue.
Now I’m somewhat stuck as in order to actually do anything on it, I have to set up accounts. I don’t quite know why that is, I have a Twitter account and a Facebook account. And I did attempt to do a blog post, but I couldn’t get in the body of the blog. It went from the title to the tag line and no matter what I did, I couldn’t get in where I really wanted to go. And I’m too tired at the end of the day to really work on figuring it out *heavy sigh*. But once I do, oh yes once I do, things will be ever so much better. Though I swear small electronic devices are a real test.
