A busy day ahead but that’s OK with me because this bit of work for today will be inside, the temperatures here have been so hot this last week that it is unreal so I’ll opt for some work time under the air conditioning.
Cindy’s Birthday was yesterday and we had a lot of fun, along with her Mom and Dad we met up with her Brother for a Birthday lunch at the New York Pizzeria and ate absolutely more than we could hold, it was early so it was almost like having the place to ourselves, and in lieu of a Birthday Cake we got to bring a complete whole large pizza home with us as the eyes were bigger than the stomach when placing the order, but that’s OK a couple slices of Sausage, Pepperoni, and Cashew Pizza for lunch today will be pretty good. We had supper with Bob and Martha which was a load of fun, and in lieu of a song and slice of cake Cindy got a cupcake and a candle with a “here ya go enjoy, we don’t sing—happy birthday” from the restaurant, but Martha ordered a seven layer slab of chocolate cake that I could feel the richness of when they passed by me with it that Cindy fully enjoyed.
I had planned on getting Cindy a new computer for her birthday and needless to say I have done a lot of looking and figuring to come up with the best bang for the buck so to say to get her the best that we can afford, we each have our own computer and the way this started was that she got me one for my birthday a few years back and my old one was cleaned up and she took it as her own, so now every time I get mine upgraded then Cindy gets my old one, I decided to break this cycle and get her a “Brand New” one of her very own without all of my stuff already on it, we set a price range and she picked the one she wanted but her Dad overheard us discussing the plan and chipped in so needless to say she is getting a much bigger and better system.
We went down after lunch and skipped over all the sales pitch by showing them exactly which system we needed, we discussed all the options and added the virus protection that we wanted rather than the trial version because you can’t be too careful these days as you all know, it was set up to be optimized and remove all the trial version crap that comes with a new system you never use and in two hours time her system was ready for pickup, I had visions of a black and white VW bug sliding into our driveway and men in shirt and ties falling all out running around like the Keystone Cops until we pointed them into the right direction, then like a NASCAR Pit crew they were to jump onto Cindy’s desk and with precision performance the new system would be up and running with all of her stuff from the old one saved and added in a record time of 12.2 seconds, but like I said that was a vision and I will begin the task of saving what she wants from the old system and getting her new one going right after I post this.
So by this afternoon Cindy will be up and running on a shiny new computer with all the bells and whistles, and I will be looking into her old one to see if I can rob any parts to make mine a bit faster, am I jealous that she has a new one and I am robbing parts for mine, heck no it actually feels pretty good.
