Sooner or later, it was bound to happen.
(Those just seeing the teaser, relax! Nothing bad has happened to me.)
I frequently travel where there are magnetometers. Metal detectors. Some days the sensitivity is such that thinking the word METAL will set them off. Other days I wouldn't be surprised if one could smuggle in a full suit of armor and a Stinger. It's gotten to the point that I have all metal out of my pockets as I approach the magnetometers.
At least I thought I did. Yesterday the guard kept wanding me and I kept going off...so I had to take out the non-metal contents of my pockets.
And then I saw it. A small, foil wrapped package - golden yellow. It announced my loyalty to the University of Southern California team.
Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Fortunately, no one else saw it. In the words of Tom Lehrer, "Be prepared"....
And the computer problems are back!
I'm back to using public library computers...I cannot check the boards from here, I cannot check Escortblogs.net, but I can check this site and my e-mail.
Thankfully, the board I check most often is a little less drama free these days....
If you've been wondering...
I havn't been very active lately due to computer problems, which, mirabile dictu, I seem to have fixed myself. I'm not really a Luddite, but my computer knowledge is damned near minimal, and it's really been a stretch for me to clean up the hard drive, defrag, uninstall the offending program and reinstall one myself.
So, no: I'm not and have not been mad at anyone.
And if you've not been wondering, why are you reading this weblog entry?
My first successful venture into the Hobby was three years ago come Tuesday. (cf "Lucky Friday The Thirteenth," one of my first entries.)
I celebrated by seeing the wonderful, compassionate, beautiful woman who first trusted me and started me off and her doubles partner today.
It was an extraordinary experience and I remain grateful to them both...but especially to she who started me on so many firsts in my life and made such a difference.
:) And this time I checked the locks on all the doors....
Thank you again, my very, very dear.
