Spring is in the air…
hopefully that means no more snow….
but I’m in Canada so one never knows.
It’s that time of year where the furnace can be on at night, then the a/c on during the day. I think the hydro and gas companies are conspiring against us Canucks and bribing Mother Nature.
it could happen.
So let me fill you in on what’s been happening at the B household….
I had to make a trip to emerg, yup, you know me and my dramatic flair. Lesson learned, no wrastling (yes that’s how you pronounce it) over 40, it just leads to setting off IBS spasms that need meds to calm down. I was so calm it was ridonkulous. I think I even napped….
in the middle of the day…
for three days straight.
My computer started acting up….
so I tried to fix it…
so I thought I had a virus…
but trying to install new virus protection lead to me finding out I cannot remove avg off my freaking ‘puter without an intervention.
Not a happy customer.
Then I ordered Trend Micro….
only to find out mini-me gets it for free through the university…
so I had to call to cancel…
and they called me Fiona with a P.H. and spelled cravings with a K, which sounds perfectly normal, except neither are proper spelling which lead to hours of me calling mini-me Fiona with P.H. while imitating the lady’s accent. Honestly provided me with hours of amusement. It’s the small things that give me joy.
I had to call Dell…
only to find out our warranty was up…
10 days ago…
thanks for calling to warn us Dell.
My pc gets picked up tomorrow. Hopefully by someone named Fiona, with a P.H.
I’m using mini-me’s pc now, but all my files are on my broken one…
as is my photo editing software.
This may be the longest 10 days of my life.
I also discovered something called BrokenLinkCheck. If you’re a blogger you’re nodding your head right now…
if you’re not you can nod off momentarily…
let’s just say I have more broken links than our 40-year-old chain link fence…
so I haven’t slept in 4 days….
nor will I for another 4 months.
BrokenLinkCheck is the bomb if you’re trying to be professional and keep your blog tidy. I learned I’ve not been tidy, nor a pro. But I rented 89 movies for the week to keep me from nodding off while I fix broken links….
and call everyone I know Fiona with a P.H. in a southern accent.
So my life is pure joy really.
We’re heading to Florida in 2 weeks. But if the ‘puter costs a lot and I keep ordering things I already own we may have to hitch hike…
so if you’re on 1-75 from the 15 to the 25 and see a blond lady holding a sign “Florida or bust…signed Phiona”, stop and pick me m’kay.
I haven’t posted a Lunatic Loves for over a month so keep in mind this is about 4 weeks worth of recipes. Enjoy!
