I Could Never Get The Hang of Thursdays.... - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
I Could Never Get The Hang of Thursdays....
especially when it isn't, even.

My internal calendar has been off all day, thinking today is Thursday.  Maybe it's because I've had court every day so far this week including yesterday's clusterphonic appearance.  Or having the kids home over the weekend with the attendant changes in routine for us and (especially) the animals.  I just know I was convinced that a court hearing already occurred that won't until tomorrow- I wasn't planning on going to it anyway- and I've already called a client about meeting on her one day a week in Buffalo, which of course isn't until tomorrow.



Speaking of Thursdays that aren't here:

This is only my 20th Book Read of the year, and it took over a month. Some, because my cardio-only workouts have been fewer and shorter since starting the biweekly HIIT classes; but some, also, because the book, funny as it was, took a lot of work to get through. My Goodreadreview is here.


Finally, a computer that almost didn't make it until Thursday:

I was waiting for a call, and began this entry at my new desk. Midsentence just below the image above, Tobor made a dangerous-sounding PING! noise and spontaneously shut off.  I'd just done an AVG-demanded restart, and there'd been no signs of trouble, but this computer would not come on.  I removed the battery and reconnected the AC, to no avail. No lights came on anywhere.

Fortunately, I did a major backup right before the Windows 10 install a few weeks ago, and had most data files backed up through Monday morning on account of taking my backup laptop to Rochester that day.  But I'd still have lost some stuff.

In short? I ignored it for a whole hour, and it came right back on- rebooting, but without serious error messages or trouble ever since.  (I've now backed up those couple of days' worth, so I'm less nervous now.)

Except that spell-check has suddenly decided that the word "a" is not a word and is underlining it at every turn. Eleanor came home just now and is blaming Gertrude, the ghost of the owner of our last Rochester home who followed us here and probably is lacking for attention with all the extra kids, cats and cars hanging around here.


More tomorrow. And hey- it'll be Friday!

I liked the first three "Thursday" books, especially the 3rd, but felt they went downhill rapidly after that. One interesting point is that the characters actually age as the series goes along.
