    I decline to comment on the above non-comments which are neither proof of innocence or a statement of guilt by which one could incriminate me if I so chose to actually say something that you would care to respond to or not respond to in which case, one then has to wonder why one is being replied to or lack thereof. The safest thing to do is make a non-response to the non-comment.

    No, but I have some nice bittersweet dark chocolate to drown the pain of having to buy a new computer today.

    Dark chocolate's ALWAYS a good thing, pain or no pain! Which one did you end up buying?

    Default musings for a wednesday night

    I went with the Dell laptop but after looking at my needs, I went down a bit on memory as I don't download music or vidoes which dropped the price $400 and changed the cover from blue )which is what it comes with to black which actually dropped it another $50.) With shipping and tax it came to about $1030.

    Good thing my uncle sam is sending me $600 next month. I just spent it.

    As for chocolate, my Scharffen Berger 70% cacao bittersweet chocolate is better than just about anything with two legs.

    Lindt is also good but Whole Foods does not carry it.

    I thought we were in April. I know the climate is on the mild side here but it has not even gotten to the low 60s F yet.

    construction started on our new apartment building which in about two years means I will be moving across the parking lot to a new building so they can tear this one down.

    It is interesting to look at as this area of SF is subject to liqufication(spelling?) so they need to put extra reinforcement under the surface as there used to be an underground river that ran through this area.

    I don't want to sink in an earthquake.

    I like scharffe'n burgers too. Especially when they are made by hand and have lots of cheese, mustard and with pickles of course. Gotta make sure the beef is cooked just right though.

    Glad you decided on the Dell - that would have been my first choice, and would be what I own now, if they had delivered to Canada when I was buying mine. Had to go with a locally produced hybrid - it works well, but a real nasty pain if I need/want service. Which means I've had to do my own troubleshooting and repairs, which fortunately have all been software related.

    Default it is about time

    I took today off work to give myself a three day weekend and it is absolutely gorgeous outside. Usually when I take Friday off, it is cold, windy and foggy. Bright blue skies, sunny, warm (it cracked 60F for the first time in eons) t-shirts and jeans weather.

    Good for you!

    Nothing wrong with a mental health day. I feel one coming on soon myself.

    Just as soon as the weather improves. It's raining today and the forecast is for snow showers tomorrow.

    Maybe next Thursday. And then I see no reason to go in Friday.

    Hey Lew

    I take Fridays off because it makes the weekend longer than taking Monday off as when Friday is over, you still have two more days (that and I have finals coming up the first week in May so I need to start studying now as Biology is not my best subject.

    It is beautiful today, around 65F, bright blue skies and more of the same tomorrow. Jeans and t-shirt weather finally!!!!

    Although I can never figure out why you see more fire trucks responding when the weather is nice than when it is raining (and I walk most places in the city, rain, shine, or cold). I saw more fire trucks just in the short time it took me to go to Starbucks, Whole Foods and then walk home than I have on days when it was pouring rain and freezing cold.

    Is it still Saturday? I fell asleep studying. The sun is out and it is 6:40 PM. but it could be Sunday. I have fallen asleep before and slept through an entire day when I was completely worn out.

    The structural support that is going up for the new building is interesting to watch as it grows. It is amazing to see how much goes underground (given that normally, you would not see any of this as constructions sites are usually fenced off) but as this is going up across from me, I get the bird's eye view of the ongoing work.

    I posted to see if it would tell me but it tells me that it is today as opposed to an earlier post which was yesterday so you don't actually know if it is Saturday or Sunday (and NO, I have not been drinking or smoking. I don't do either and have not even touched the Port yet!) I'm just a confused person tonight.

    I did figure it out this morning when I woke up around 5 AM this morning. It is Sunday, currently11:50 am beautiful blue skies and about 75F.

    Yes, I have my Grey Poupon, and I might even share. (I even have some cheese, some wine, some fresh snapper, lemons, and tarragon and will be baking some fresh bread for dinner.

    Women= another reason I go fishing so much..

    I am actually looking for a female companion, but it isn't easy finding one who likes to fish (alot), can cook on a grill, likes to cut grass in a bikini top (ok, so that is just wishful thinking....) and doesn't mind that I spend hours sitting in a boat on a trailer looking at a bunch of plastic baits and shiny metal hooks. Looks aren't as important as most women think, but a good attitude and seductive eyes, now that is sexy.....

    If I can't find that in a woman, I'll stick to looking for a Sugar Momma that doesn't mind paying for my hobbies....

    My new laptop came today. I am reallly happy I went with the Dell (1520). Now I just have to transfer info over. The keyboard and monitor are a vast improvement over my Gateway (which is a very good computer, it is just old. )
    I can't believe it came so fast.
