I love my husband dearly, but he thinks he has more computer expertise than he does.

He gave me one of his office computers. I spent Saturday syncing Firefox between teh two. I saw my favorites, recent documents, documents on teh new computer.

I was working down my favorites list logging in, saving login info when all information disappeared. No favorites at all. It is not teh websites so much as the folders with things like recipes and professional contact information.

Unfortunately I had dleted stuff from teh old computer. Now I have to go back on there aand try to recover stuff.

I have my music in iTunes. I set up home sharing. I "saw" my play lists on the new computer. The music is gone. Fotunately I had not deactivated the old computer.

Then I was re-creating favorites/bookmarks from memory in Firefox and looking at websites. Firefox is crashing frequently at such risky sites as WaPo. I have teh problem with IE on Topix at work and iTopix was crashing Firefox at home. Sigh.

Husband is not able to diagnse much less fix the problems. So my inexpensive hand me down just got pricy because I need a real IT person who I will have to pay.

Sigh.

If something looks too good to be true....

Temporarily.

Still wanting to find a new job, though. Know of any leads?

Noooo.
Vegetable soup.Pick out the carrots.
Plain tuna from the salad bar with some celery, onions, jardinaire and squeezed lemon.
Some grapes from home left over from Christmas dinner.
A lot of herb tea.
I am on day 4 of 14. I WILL do this.
Yeah, I gotta do something too. I ordered My Little Pony t-shirt for all of this Christmas and they arrived a little late (this Saturday) and when I tried mine on, it was a scooch too tight. And it's really cute and I have no intention of just leaving it in my dresser this summer, wishing I could wear it.

My first step is going to be no more sweets at lunch. I couldn't do your diet with my loathing of veg and most fruit. I think it's the sweets that are doing it to me because otherwise I don't eat *that* badly.

And I support laws on stupid baby names.
We should start with names like "Guy" or "Bruce" or "Sally."
So the government should not be allowed to track your guns or tell you what kind you can have or tell you where you can smoke (with both issues having significant health and safety implications) but it should be allowed to tell you what you can name your own child?

Never let it be said you were ever held back by inconsistency.

No, just allowed to tell you what you CAN'T name your child. Didn't the government step in a few years back and took a baby from a white surpremacy couple for naming it Hitler? And talk about consistency, you're all about freedoms and letting people do what they want... unless it's about the rights of gun ownership, rights of religion, smoking and wearing seatbelts... Typical liberal hypocricy.

You have no idea what I am about because you go no further than deducing a person's entire platform from their opinion on one issue.

There is no difference between telling someone what they can name their child and what they cannot, it's just a matter of which list is longer. You just made a distinction with no difference.

Has anyone here seen Ralphie May? He is hilarious. We flew to Vegas last week and caught his show while we were there and he was a riot. If you can get him on Comedy Central you should.

Yeah, he was on Last Comic Standing and I've seen some of his other stuff. Very funny guy.

Are you denying you're a liberal? We've been over this before, you won't name ONE conservative ideal you support.

Reconcile the point I made first - your inconsistency between the government not having a say re: guns and smoking but having a say re: names - then it'll be your turn and we'll move on to my political agenda.

I tried that already, remember? I asked how it's inconsistent for me but not for you? I'm not waiting for an answer because I know you can't explain your hypocrisy. Now, back to your political agenda...

Hey, so an amazing show returns tomorrow night. Justified on FX. Timothy Oliphant stars, and it is an excellent show. My bf got me into it, I thought it would just be another tough guy show but it really is very well done. We are having a bunch of people over for the season premiere.

That's just about the answer I was expecting. Duck, dodge and deflect. If you're not going to play fair then back to your cancer research or whatever meaningful use you are making of your time off.

I see you're continuing to dodge the question. I see right through your misdirection and trying to turn it back around on me.

And I spend my time off watching TV and drinking. Meaningful enough?

Well, I just discovered a wrap at Trader Joe's that just might derail my good intentions.

It's a whole wheat torilla (starts off good, right?) with turkey, stuffing, cranberries and cream cheese. It is so f*cking GOOD!

This is for Race, an add on to the AR15 style gun that legally allows the user to fire 100 rounds in 7 seconds when using belt fed ammo. I am sure he will be saving up to get one.
