To be truthful, I'm still pretty annoyed about losing the fabulous blog I wrote yesterday.But today is a new day so I will suck it up and do it again. My original idea had to do with the discussion of the weather changes, unique to the high desert, but today is a sunny warm and beautiful, a perfect spring day.
Today, my focus is on technology. "Why, would a person choose Palm Sunday, to be focused on technology?" Good question, and now that I read that sentence, I realize that my time would be much better spent focusing on Palm Sunday.
However, it is relevant because today's the day that I was to begin my new cell phone coverage and my portal will change at 1:37 p.m. and I was instructed to call a 800 number and switch over my service. Well, nobody mentioned that I actually have to speak to a human being, and the call center is not open on Sunday, duh. So tragedy upon tragedy, effective at 1:37pm, I will not have cell phone use until Monday. This is really no big deal, but I'm still annoyed. I have spent considerable time transferring data to my new phone; it is cute and little, and I would like to use it-especially since it has Bluetooth technology (which I don't get at all-I guess it's wireless wireless?). wait...Bingo! I just paired the Bluetooth earpiece to my phone, isn't a terrific and wouldn't it be nice if I could actually use it.(just let it go.)
Be that as it may, I will not be able to use my new phone. You may visualize serious pout right now.
As much as I think I would like to simplify my life; decludicate*, the unnecessary debris from my home. I am simply a ho for new gizmos and gadgets. And I know full well whenever I buy one of these things that I will have to read a 200 page manual to figure out how to use it, and since I am a visual learner,this will be a gigantic pain in the butt cheeks. And still... I do it.
Okay I'm done with that. I have spent the first two months of my retirement, hanging out, doing what I want and spending very little time in my car. All that has changed this weekend, since I drove in to see a show on Friday night and have a delightful dinner with a friend; I drove to Santa Fe yesterday to spend the afternoon with a friend and I will be driving to Madrid this afternoon to have brunch. I tell you I am exhausted. In addition, I find that I have a new malady (or, as I am now calling it "numality") which is hoarseness. I don't feel I need to rush to the emergency room. However, I find it interesting thatI'm hoarse after "talking" for two days. I guess that's another thing that happens when you stay home and don't talk to people,your voice can get rusty.
Well that's boring. Since I am clearly, uninspired I will end this so that I can go read the blogs written by the clever people.
*this will be an excellent topic for another day, if only I can remember.
