Mostly venting

Went to my mom's last night. Chicken curry, mmmmmm. :)

All was not great, though. I've turned into tech support... and I mean even more than I used to be. The last several times I've been over there hasn't been any real sort of conversation. My entire visit consisted of fixing problems with my mother's increasing collection of technological gadgets.

I mean, seriously, who needs four different dvd players hooked up to their televisions?! And in a way that they can all be played through each other, not just to the tv. Then there is her new "media player". Gah! I swear, she shouldn't be allowed to have these things... she doesn't understand how to hook them together, she has to write herself instructions to get everything to work. And don't get me started on her computer! She can't even follow the simple directions of "open the folder", I have to walk her through finding the correct folder and clicking on it. Yes, mom, you have to click twice.

Anyway, that venting went a bit too long. On my way home, this big truck came out of nowhere, barreling down the road and almost hit me, then decided to ride my ass and turn on their high-beams. After going the long way to get home (the truck was turning the same way I wanted to, but I didn't want to be in front of it any longer), I ran into the same truck again while cutting back to my place. The damn thing slammed into reverse and tried to run me off the road! Damn crazy driver!

So today Kat is serving on a jury. I hope the case doesn't last too long.

Let's see... oh yeah, Happy Earth Day!

I ran into a little present from nature back at the vehicle storage lot here at work. It was owl droppings in the form of a squirrel. Just a bit of fur and bones. Hmm, come to think of it, it might not have been an owl, I have seen a very large bird (I think it was an eagle) around lately.

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing fine! :)
