Yesterday was exhausting for me, but I did get World of Tanks installed on my puter so I can make Richard play it. :-) He loves tanks. I'd previously installed some beta war game in Steam so he can try both.
It was hot and the humidity makes the friction hard to overcome when I'm dragging my foot, but Tiff visited, which was fun. Me: it's too hot for clam chowder!!!!! Tiff always feeds me but has a predeliction for hot soup that I can't share at all now but especially not when it's 80 degrees. She's so awesome she had cold food up her sleeve including asparagus and watermelon.
After she left I had to just stay where I was as I felt like I was too depleted to be able to get up until I'd rested a bit. Eating quotes me out as digestion uses energy. Heat wipes me out. Visitors wipe me out. I SUCK!!! :-)
This morning I awoke at 6 so hot I had to get up and turn the fan on. No, it wasn't hot. I decided I need to just do absolutely nothing today, as opposed to my usual nothing much. I did track down the painting of Putin in women's underwear that caused me such glee in mere text description.
I've been hanging out a lot on G+ lately and suddenly realised it's taken Twitter's place for me. That made me just a tad sad as I admire Ev to the max. He made both Blogger and Twitter. I used to read blogs long before I decided to have one, and I've had one for over ten years. That revolution was immensely meaningful to me, and seems eons ago though it was not long really.
At that time I was on free dial-up and using everyone's tiny bit off free isp storage space to build them websites for fun. I remember Marilyn C saying HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW TO DO THESE THINGS??? as I blithely FTPed images to someone or other's server space. I just figured it out with the aid of my trusty inherited engineer genes. I think it helps to be able to visualise things. I certainly didn't have anyone showing me what to do and certainly never read any instruction manuals.
Not that I'm anything special but truthfully it's obvious how very little most people understand of computers. Back in about 1999 my brother was profoundly frustrated with his crap computer he'd bought as it was like his friend's, and perhaps used it 5 times, I think. I told him not to worry, as computers were going to get easier to use, not harder, and that they were hard too use as they were so limited and stupid. I don't know how I knew that but I did and it was exactly right.
It's been raining all day so far.
