Random Stuff

Time.  Where is it?  Where did it go?  How do I buy more of it?

Technology.  It’s an awesome thing but sometimes it gets in the way.  On the advice of an IT guy at work, I succumbed to the incessant reminders that I can upgrade my personal laptop from Windows 8.1, which I don’t really like, to Windows 10.  The reminders said all of my stuff would be in the same place.  True, except for Internet Explorer, my preferred browser.  They’ve got some new thing that I just don’t want to use yet.  But finding the old one (old meaning 6 months old) was/is a pain in the ass.

Seasons.  Tomorrow is the first day of spring.  It is starting to snow as I write this.  It won’t be much but I don’t want any.  That blizzard in January was enough.  Cherry blossoms are starting to bloom here in the DC area and I don’t want them to crawl back into their buds.  First day of spring, last day of snow?

MS.  Some days I am reluctant to tell people I have multiple sclerosis and then one day I interviewed an MS Society executive on a radio show and shared my story.  People don’t really know how to react.  My only visible symptom is that I walk with a limp most of the time, but I’ve had to explain that a few times.  Next time I might try a better story … I got injured wrestling with an alligator … man, barbequed gator tastes great!
