Warning, Rant Ahead!

My computer crashed and so I headed upstairs to the old dinosaur and saw that what I thought was a beautiful golden color on the new non-working computer is a putrid pea green up here. Hence the gray. I called Geek Squad and they can come over next Tuesday for $249. They are a bit like a plumber around here - flat fee for driving to your house, and then "per job" not hour. They estimate what it's going to cost ahead of time. When the plumber came it took them 10 minutes (I am not kidding, and that included writing out the invoice) and $149.

Can I buy a new computer for $249? I should check that out. Maybe they should be disposable and you just buy a new one every month? That would certainly make you back things up, wouldn't it?

Next I am going to find my "Grumpy" shirt that I got at Disney World. And the picture above has nothing to do with anything except that I felt the need to put a picture in this post. It's a picture of me as a toddler.

Thankfully, my sewing machine is not computerized...so I can keep working downstairs...
