Tuesday Too?

Tuesday Too1.) What was the best moment/time for you in 2002?

2.) Is there something significant that will be different for you in 2003? How come, or why not?

3.) Some people really enjoy celebrating New Years. Do you? Do you have a ritual associated with the arrival of the new and passing of the old? What is it?

On the fourth day of Christmas…

Well it’s three days after Christmas; too much to eat and too much to drink, and still I feel virtuous as I open the coffee creamer with the green plastic cap. The one that’s fat free. Why does that one have a green cap, and the one with the fat has a white cap? Who decides these things? Ah, I know it’s the industrial psychologists who’ve gone over to marketing. Is there something about green that shouts healthy?

“Green Eggs and Ham”

“Green Peace”

“The grass is greener on …”

“Greens in the salad”


I’m sure you’re green with envy over my fat free creamer, but on the other hand, we have the greenhouse effect, and “no I do not want to go to happy hour Mr. Potatoehead.”

“But why not?”, he said.

“Because I’m feeling quite virtuous, and drinking does not equate with virtue?”

“Why now, and pray tell why doesn’t it?”

“Because it’s time to consider the alternatives.”

He shook his head in a quandary, and said, “Natives? What do natives have to do with it? The idea of savages disrupting my lifestyle is just so over the top.”

“I didn’t say natives; I said alternatives”

“Alternatives to what? Happy hour? Now we’re moving towards, over my dead body.”

“Oh all right then, lets go.”

“The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.”

–Mark Twain

Already Tuesday Too?

Tuesday Too What do you think about the US government giving money to family members of 9/11 victims?

1.) Is a firemen’s life worth less than a stock broker?

2.) What about family members of victims who died from circumstances not related to 9/11?

3.) It is likely that 9/11 will not be the last terrorist attack. Should the same “compensation” be provided for future victims families?

It seems like days ago I wrote yesterday’s post. Lucky for me I did make a diagram of the computer wires, because I won’t be connecting it back up till Sunday. Life this week and probably next is hectic. I remind myself of all the times my parents took care of me, and many of those times I didn’t deserve it. they do, and I will. This has just been longer and more drawn out than I expected. However, I do see a speck of light at the end of the tunnel. When I arrive at the end of the tunnel, I’ll take a moment to bask in the sun light, before slipping down the path towards the next tunnel.

Moving Day

Four packers (no not Greenbay) spent the better part of yesterday packing the rest of my parents belongings. I’ve never been moved professionally (you know what I mean); instead of taking the drawers out of a dresser, loading the dresser in the truck, and reinserting the drawers, everything in the drawers must be packed in boxes. No more time for, “do I really need that,” or “do you think so and so would like this.” Thus there will still be many decisions to be made on the other end. The older you get, the harder it is to move, and it’s not just that you’ve accumulated more, although that appears to be true. The apartment within the retirement community is really quite nice, but it’s the last apartment. When you’re on the up side of age, you move into larger and larger places, but on the down side of age, the places are smaller and smaller. Shortly I will shut down this computer, unplug all the wires from various devices, and try to remember where each one returns to later this afternoon. Hmmm, I think I better make a diagram. And I think I’d better start pruning my own belongs.

Tuesday Too

Tuesday1.) Do you have the google toolbar?

If you don’t I suggest you go get it; its way cool and quite handy. I resisted for such a long time, because I was always such a die hard Netscape fan, and it only works with IE.

2.) You may be surprised when you test yourself for hidden bias at

3.) What’s floating your boat today?

AOL 500 Hours Free

Julie was talking about using them to pave the world, and I was thinking of using them for breast plates. But, where are they when you need one?

Why do you need one?

Hopefully the problem has resolved itself. I’m not home right now, and I’m using someone elses connection to post this morning. So here’s what happened yesterday morning when I tried to get online. That damn ole message kept comming up: “Cannot make connection, check your password and try again.” I used to have netzero on my computer for just such an emergency, but alas I neglected to move that over when I changed computers after the Elliott fiasco. Since I have not been using the AOL disks for breast plates, and rather have been throwing them in the trash, I can’t get out there to my IP to see what’s up. Until now that is. I’ve got there number now; when I get home I’ll ring them up if the problem still exists. Don’t you love it when problems just disappear?

What about the Tuesday Too?

Well, if I get things rolling or find they have rolled on their own, I’ll be here tomorrow at the somewhat usual time of 5ish AM eastern standard time.
