[smartads] I was really tired this morning, but I got up at 0838 anyway. Lita was heading to the market about that time. She didn’t ask me if I wanted anything today. We’re almost out of lettuce.
I didn’t go to bed until a little past 2am this morning. I was downloading music and trying to organize it on the spot so I wouldn’t have a lot to do later, or, most likely forget about it and just have tons of it to organize. If there is a ton, I’d probably not do it, and then I’d have a big mess. I’m actually listening to the songs now to make sure they all work properly. I have them in order by artist and Aerosmith is first. Walk This Way is just starting.
I really afraid this will be a short post. No really, I mean it this time. I’m going to have to ramble my a$$ off to get this even close to 1500 words. It’s already late and I’m just starting this thing. It’s been right up next to dead around here today. Not completely, but close.
Ramil stopped by this morning to pick up the truck. He is taking it to the mechanic to finally get it all fixed. The only mechanic we really trust to do it properly was on vacation in Manila. Well he’s back now and ready to work.
Alice Cooper is coming on now. Poison. I didn’t use to listen to Alice Cooper, but since I’ve been here I heard 6 or 7 songs that are pretty good actually. This is one of the best ones, I think. I believe You and I is the best one though.
As I said I started this post late. It’s 6:39pm right now. I’ve been playing games, checking fantasy football and checking some more into MJTS.
I had 3 BLT’s for dinner, around 4:30. That will be the last time I eat today. I still will be drinking though. No alcohol, just Gatorade, Mountain Dew, Water and/or tea. Yet that’s just about all I drink anyway.
Right around the time I was finishing up the last sandwich, I heard the truck pull back up. I was hoping that Ramil would come in here and tell me what was going on, but he didn’t. He probably told Lita and figured that was good enough. She hasn’t told me a thing about it. She just walked in and out of the bedroom and still didn’t say anything. Next time she comes in, I’m going to ask. Doesn’t seem right that I have to keep asking about things. In the States, I’m the one that had all the control. Not having it takes some getting use to, and I’m not to the ‘use to’ point yet.
I got a new reader for the blog today. He is not showing up on here though. He is going through another site that my URL is on. He doesn’t want to display his messages to everyone, just to me and that site offers private messages. Hey what ever the man wants. He plans to move here to the PI in January. He’s looking for advice and help from me. I hope I don’t disappoint him.
My electric fan in the computer room quit on me today. When I came in this morning to turn it on, the motor sounded like it was dying. I unplugged it, and tried to take it apart, hoping that after I put it back together it would work, but I couldn’t get the cap off. The one that goes in front of the blades. First of all I have a hard time remembering which way to turn it. What is that saying? Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosy. Something like that. But the cap on the fan is the opposite, so I get confused. Anyway I couldn’t get it off so, I just gave up on it. I decided to try it one more time, so I plugged it in, and it worked. It’s been running for several hours now, no problems. I even turned it off once and it turned back on, no problemo.
I’m going to try my speakers again. I think they got messed up, but I’m tired of wearing these headphones all the time, it hurts my right ear. Don’t know why just that side. I’ve loosened them up, but it doesn’t do any good. Let me check those speakers.
NO! They don’t work. No power. I guess that is really the #2 thing I need for this computer. I need the All-in-Printer first, the speakers, a wrist pad and a new C-drive. Probably priority in that order also.
One thing I had about this computer room is, for some reason, I get a lot of dirt on the floor under the computer table. I don’t know if it’s because of the concrete, dirt on shoes, or what, but it builds up quickly. I have to sweep it myself about every week. So much builds up. I call it cement dust, because that’s what it looks like. I swept it up and I couldn’t find the dust pan. It wasn’t where it was suppose to be. I had to go ask Lita, and she didn’t know. When she asked Vicky, I went into the house. About a minute later, Lynn showed up with it. I used it, then returned it to where it’s suppose to be. I made sure I told Lita that it’s suppose to be in one spot so it’s easier for everyone to find. I hope the message got through.
Tagalog word of the day: aso (aw-so) means dog.
The last couple of days my internet has been running pretty good. Only very few problems with waiting. I’m not complaining. If it was like this all the time, I’d be okay with it. It’s 7:20pm now.
Becky Hobbs is singing now. So far, no problems with any of the songs.
Well I’ve almost rambled my way to 1000 words. Maybe by the time I finish this sentence, I’ll be over 1000.
Nope, it was 999. Oh well, it’s over 1000 now.
I’m going to insert some pictures now. I think tomorrow I will be going down town again. I’d like to take some pictures of City Hall, the park, COBO market and a couple of the stores there.
That’s 8 pictures, that’s enough for now. I’ll add a couple more close to the end.
Mar, Ludy and Marianne are here. I asked Mar to come in and look at the new MJTS Flyer. He seems to mostly approve. I talked with him some more about the business, asked him some questions I wasn’t sure of, and know I have a better understanding now of how things are, and how they could be. I still think I can get $500 off that original price he has. I asked him about all expenses, and I still say that. And, on top of that, I think that I can reduce it $100 for every group of 5 over 5, up to 20 people. Meaning if it is 10 people, then I can reduce it $600 per person, group of 15 people reduced $700 and 20 (or higher) people $800 per person, all from that original price, that I haven’t disclosed yet. I’m going to make a page and put it on here for y’all to check out, if interested. I’ll do that later, I’m still checking other areas to make sure everything is basically sound. I don’t like errors and try hard not to make them. Of course I do, but it’s not because I didn’t try to make everything perfect.
I had to make some more soup. I was still hungry. I used the bottle water this time and I did not get that after taste, so I guess it is the water that is doing it. Lita would probably get mad if she saw me using the bottled water, so y’all don’t tell her, Marianne, Marge and Marlou.
Bette Midler is singing “From a Distance” now. So far, so good on the songs being good.
So sorry it was boring today. Like I said, I will be going into town tomorrow and I’ll try to make something interesting happen so I can input it here. I won’t rob a bank or anything like that, but when I walk downtown, things happen. Even if it’s just giggling mga bata.
That fan is still working.
