Spring is coming. I know, I heard the springtime birds chirping Sunday evening and it filled my heart with joy and hope. Goodbye wet, cold winter - hello sunny, breezy spring!
And hello new blog design. Do you like it? My friend had stored some things at our apartment that he didn't want his parents to see while they helped him move into his new house. He came to get it the other night and I saw this lovely photo album in the box with this picture on the cover.
"I love it!", I told him. "Can I borrow this so I can use it on my blog?"
I call it "Women & Wine". Hee.
In less cheery news, I would like to state that I am taking care of the grumpiest patient on the planet. They say men are babies when they're hurt or sick; "they" were right.
Baret has what appears to be the flu, or a very bad cold, and is so irritable and grumpy despite my best attempts to comfort, take care of and dote on him that I'd like to lock him in the bedroom until he's feeling better.
All of my concern and assistance is met with snappish answers and miserable groans. I'm trying to remind myself that he just isn't feeling well, but I can't help but get riled up when he acts like that. When I snap back he gets even more irritated and yells at me, "What?!"
Tonight I'm just going to go home, get some work done on a web design project and ignore him. It is for times like these that I bought the headphones that I keep at my desk.
In closing, I'd like to leave you with my main i.t. pet peeve of the last week. I'll give you a synopsis of the problem & all of the calls I received; yes, this happened more than once:
Person-calling-in: Something is wrong with my computer.
Me: (thinking: Whoa there, buddy. Too much information. I might actually be able to fix this problem if you were more specific. Wouldn't want that, now would we?) Well, what is it doing?
Person-calling-in: I'm trying to open/install whatever-program and it's giving me an error message.
Me: Okay. What's the error message?
Person-calling-in: I have no idea. I didn't read it.
Me: Well I need you to try and install/open it again and read the error message to me. I really can't help you if I don't know what the error message says. (thinking: DUH!!??)
Happy Tuesday, ya'll.
