Our four year old has developed an annoying habit. She seems to delight in taking random objects and throwing them up with the ceiling so they can land on who-knows-what.
It gets really interesting when she’s throws one of her toys up in the air and it hits the ceiling fan.
I’m really hoping she gets over this quickly. (sigh)
This sudden change in weather is really rough on those of us with arthritis. In my case, at least, it isn’t so much the cold as it is the fact that the high temperatures will be in the 70s for a couple of days and then in the 40s for a couple of days. This constant back and forth has my right hand so swollen that now, as I type with just my two middle fingers, my right ring finger will drag across the keyboard because I can’t curl it up out of the way.
I hope that manifestation isn’t permanent, like most of the others have been.
I have discovered recently that it may be time to go looking for a rode mic at Musician’s Friend. The built-in mic on my laptop is, frankly, a joke. The headphones I bought on eBay have a boom mic, but it isn’t what I’d call “high quality” either; it’s pretty good for a $5 mic, but it is still a $5 mic.
I tried to record a game play video of Star Trek Online, but no matter which mic I use, the voice over has this really irritating hum.
A couple of years ago we bought one of those cheap pre-lit Christmas trees from America’s Largest Retailer. It comes in three pieces which fit together easily. Once the pieces are together, the bottom section plugs into the wall, the middle section plugs into the bottom section, and the top section plugs into the middle section.
This year when we pulled it out, only the bottom section would light up. Rather than buying a new tree, we bought a string of lights to put on it. These lights are supposed to blink in two sections. I plugged them into the bottom section of the tree and strung the top 2/3 of the tree with them. When I first turned them on, they blinked normally for a few minutes, then the top third of the tree stopped blinking, leaving the middle section blinking all by itself. Yesterday, that section quit blinking too.
At this point I’m thinking that blinking lights are over rated.
One of the girls is having trouble trying to decide what to get me for Christmas. Rather than come out and tell her that it really doesn’t matter to me because I don’t believe it’s all about the gifts you get, I keep giving her a hard time by suggesting thing that either she cannot possibly afford or you just can’t get around here.
I wonder what I’m going to do if she actually comes up with a box of handmade cigars.
