I found the proper Vista drivers yesterday to (ostensibly) power my new wireless modem and downloaded them. Did they work? Why, hell no! It's Vista. I didn't expect them to. I can still use the card on that computer; just not the way it works on the other computer.
Because of the addition of a couple of new pieces of furniture with drawers, I was able to get all of the clutter in my bedroom put away. It looks so much better! And with neater surroundings and my Feng Shui assuaged, it just feels better.
I got caught up on my "duty" telephone calls last evening. I don't know why everybody doesn't have e-mail.
I've been looking for a while for the perfect leather jacket, and hadn't seen a thing I liked. Then I got a catalog in the mail Saturday and there it was -- the jacket. I ordered it yesterday. It looks like this:
My house is getting new siding, and the siding guys were supposed to show up at 8:00 this morning. They finally arrived just as I was leaving for work. I see a (predictable) trend starting here. Hopefully, they'll be done by the end of the week. Personally, I thought the house looked fine the way it was, but it wasn't my decision. If that much money was going to be spent, I'd have preferred spending it on new hardwood floors -- or upgrading the plumbing.
I went to put on my favorite watch this morning and discovered that it had died. I wish I knew why I am anathema to watch batteries. I have one wind-up watch that still works. I might as well just wear it until it, too, dies.
So far, work isn't all that crazy today. Who knows, maybe the whole week will be as good as the weekend was.
