The Dr. Says "Don't Blink!"

Son of a gun! These Stone Angel episodes from Dr. Who always freak me out. And this particular one, oh man. Weeping Baby Angels. The idea is just horrific.

Juno - Free Email Problems?

I have been using Juno since the 90's. Not the same email address, sadly, as in my younger days I regularly created, used, discarded and  rinse & repeat email addresses like they were flapjacks.

I have kept the last couple the same for the past several years because I'm realizing how nice a stable email address can be, even as a backup.
However, in the last couple of months I have noticed that I am getting a LOT more of the "type in the captcha to prove you're not a bot" thing going on. I can understand if it happens once or twice a year, but multiple times a month?
I regularly change my password, I haven't been hacked and had autospam sent out and in fact, nothing that I can think of would warrant this.
Unless Juno wants to get rid of people using their free email by hassling them.

Now, just because I'm an evil, paranoid genius doesn't mean that THEY aren't out to get me. Remember that folks, it could save your life one day.

Who Is My Neighbor?

Sometimes, your neighbor is NOT the stranger you see beaten on the side of the road who you help.

Sometimes your neighbor is actually your neighbor who locked themselves out of their car and their apartment. So you feed them, as they haven't eaten all day, give them a place to crash until AAA shows up and give them a sympathetic ear as they pour out their woes, because locking themselves out was just an end to an already horrible day.

I am not trying to toot my own horn here. Just reminding everyone that we ALL are going to be someone's neighbor at some point in our lives.

Good News! The Day is Over...

Today should have been one of those days that is perfect.

I had medical appointments in the morning, got some really good news about my shoulder, got myself back on track with an endocrinologist and had some general lab work done to check out ol' inner workings.

Work was a half day, at one place and was easy.

After work I visited a friend who had been in a car accident and I hadn't seen for several weeks.

However, I have been in such a bad mood the whole phracking day!
I'm going to get a HUGE needle in the shoulder in the next couple of weeks.
My coworker talked for 4hrs straight and took a "little picture" view of the work we were doing and it drove me me nuts. Twice as much work with half the results, grrrrr.
My friends parents showed up and ended up trying to dominate the conversation.

At least once home I got to eat a huge bowl of super sugary honey rice crisps cereal.

Book Project Update

All right, 2000 is done! Only 14 more years to go :-)

Oy vey, this is not turning out to be a light undertaking at all. Well, nothing a bit of time won't solve, or a lot of bit of time.

Yep, just call me Saint Bookstooge!
