  • how sweet to be an idiot

    Today a funny little trick happened, like a hug. I didn't catch it until this afternoon.

    Ten years ago some interesting stuff happened for awhile to several people in the family after she passed on. One thing in particular that happened here the very first week was my computer abruptly saying "Goodbye" and waking me up from a nap as it suddenly logged itself off AOL, and within seconds my phone rang, and the call was from the school about my very sick kid. The timing was so precise, and it seemed so perfect after spending a year sitting up on the computer with her through sleepless nights while she was very sick.

    This morning I had barely gotten started working on my laptop when it abruptly shut off. It doesn't normally do that. Today would have been her birthday. So my way of saying hi back to her is with a quote she was fond of, and a special smiley that she used. " How sweet to be an idiot and dip my brain in joy."

    She was far from being an idiot. She liked taunting me with cute things she could make her pictures and text do in forums, and laughed when I asked how she did stuff on her little websites. She died before I ever found out her secrets. I had no clue how to do those things. One evening before I fell asleep I asked her to show me her secrets in a dream. I started having some fantastic dreams.

    And then I started doing cool stuff on the computer. She is my mentor even still. Everything that I do should be good for people somehow. What she invented she did to escape the drudgery of living through pain and dealing with fear. Even when she was only a child she was already so very good at that. I've spent many years trying to reach a level of fun distraction that will never equal hers. I can't help sliding back into my drudgery. I know we all have a hard time with that.

    One of my favorite quotes is from C.S. Lewis- "Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind." I believe that, but I want to do as much as I can before I have to be done here, even if being here sux.

    This song gets me through a lot of hard stuff and makes me feel better. It's easy to forget day by day that there is more than this stuff we are stuck in, but every time I remember how quickly this part is flashing by me, it's much easier to focus back on what I want to get done.


  • scary late night movie social and stuffs

    Yesterday's post was too long. Today is power point.

     The best way to handle passing a gallstone is not to eat the junk for 2 weeks beforehand in the first place.

     I moved 400 pix off my phone yesterday. I plan to move at least 500 more today.

     It's been ten years this weekend (last birthday today, last day Monday) since my sister watched her oldest daughter die horribly in a lot of pain from severe swift complications in a big hospital.

     Scott and I are setting explosives in our bedroom before we go shopping for a new dresser.

     I'll let you guys know on twitter if I run into any spiders.

     I'm actually wide awake already at 5:45 a.m. but I wanted to use this cute little gif.

     And we start the morning with the laptop abruptly overheating and shutting down right after that last one because I didn't have the cooling table fan plugged in. I can see a quick trip in to the Geek Squad for a fan fixin in my future.

     Just filled the crockpot with pork roast and brats. Tonight is #scarysocial Pandorum on Chiller and #latenightmovie in chat with the gang. I love all you guys. But I love my best buddies the most.
