An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
- I’m kinda a gadget person so I get a lot of worthless “semi-gadgets” as Christmas presents. For some of my relatives gadget is synonymous with cheap toy that breaks the first time I use it if it even works at all. I’m polite; but I’d much rather have a sweater that fits.
- The “temporary” dog has already eaten all the supposedly extra-durable toys we got her for Christmas. I’ve lost count of how many times we’ve had too clean stuffing up off the floor.
- The video card in one of our desktop computers had died yet again. And, the fan didn’t work on the spare (i.e. an old one that was replaced in a previous upgrade) that I saved. So, I’ll be spending a bit more to buy one locally since I wouldn’t receive an internet order in timely fashion because of the mid-week holiday.
- I upgraded the WordPress software that runs this blog. Mostly just a bug-fix release; but the default font in the editor is somewhat larger which is very welcome for these bifocal-wearing eyes of mine.
