This has simply not been my week.
I get to work this morning, log onto my computer, and am inundated with error messages. Some time between logging out last night and logging on this morning, the drivers for my display, network card, DVD drive, USB drives, and other assorted stuff became corrupted. Four hours after I called them, someone from the IT department showed up and took my computer away, threatening to re-image it. And believe me, these people do not inspire trust.
Because I could not do any work, I left the office at noon and came home. I already had leave scheduled for tomorrow, so I won’t be back to work until Tuesday. And you know what? I’m not going to think about my dead computer over the long weekend. Tuesday is soon enough to think about it.
So I got an unexpected early start to my weekend. That’s not a bad thing.
Wow, what a response to the comment counter. Thanks to everyone who commented and a special thanks to you delurkers!
I think you must be right — it tracks number of comments by name, not by email address. (I’m not sure where I got that idea.) So any commenter named Susan gets credit for all the Susans who comment. Oh well, it is all in fun, anyhow.
I really surprised Miss Lucy by coming home early today, but she quickly adjusted.
By the way, the remote control she had in yesterday’s photo? It is this one:
That controls a fan. So the KOARC is not overly concerned with it. 😉
Just to get some knitting content in here, here’s my Six-Pack Sock:
Do you see what I did? I split the center motif and moved the halves to each side of the sock and put a new smaller motif in the center. After I turn the heel, the formerly center motif will continue up the side of the sock, and the other half of each side will be on the back of the sock, so there will be a full motif on each side of the sock. I think it’ll look even nicer that way. Next time you see it I should be past the heel so you can better see what I’m striving for.
Okie doke — I’ll be back on Sunday to talk about my weekend hijinks. And I’m gonna have something awesome to give away!
