Along with getting a few responsible things done, I also enjoyed finding some new bicycle routes, reading a coupla novels, playing too much words-with-friends, and watching some escapist tv shows. Time to fire up the brain cells again, I suppose.
Meego started school last week, and Wolfgang is nearly all moved into the apartment with Chaco now. This will be an interesting experiment. Naturally, they've lived together before, but this arrangement will be different without their washwoman around. Hmm...
And Potato, Meego's aged computer, just wasn't going to be able to handle the workload anymore. He's been replaced by a newer, younger model to accommodate all the important
Magnum and I offered to get Meego a laptop to take care of all his homework needs, but Meego didn't necessarily jump for joy at the offer. Instead, he entered into cahoots with Chaco to build a new computer to suit his needs when I said we would contribute money we would've spent for the boring laptop.
The yet-to-be-named new guy arrived in pieces, and then this happened:
Chaco wouldn't build it. He said that Meego had to build it, and he would just help. This so that Meego would take better care of it. Either that or Meego would have to pay him bunches of money.
How come Chaco was able to get such quick results when it's similar to the principle I've been using for years with such lackluster results??
And speaking of results, I got a surprise generous e-mail promo coupon and ordered some capri tights this morning. While I was shopping, I was reading the reviews for these particular tights and came across a review that included this photo.
Yes, that's the same woman in both pics. I don't think she'll mind me stealing her photo since it was on a shopping site and all, right? In her (favorable) review, she mentions that she's lost nearly 200 pounds in 15 months and plans to run a marathon later this year.
I just love those kinda stories.
