Good News Bad News


The good news: My smoke detector works!

The bad news: I didn't get to eat the bacon I burned and my whole apartment still smells like slightly burned bacon fat.



The good news: I can type on my iPod touch if I have to. Which, combined with my wireless means I have at least some computer ability even if my laptop isn't working. Which reminds me. . .

The bad news: My laptop charger broke.

The good news: My computer was still under warranty so I got a new one yesterday free of charge!

The bad news: I'm a little behind on my posting (and post reading) because I spent two days trying to make the charger work. (One thought I honestly had? Hmmm, maybe it's not working because it's so cold*. Let me wrap it in a blanket!)

The good news: I know y'all won't mind.





*Seriously. It was -6 and -18 with the windchill. Brrrrr! (That's bizarrely cold for Victoria)

I can't use touch screens. It's like I'm really a dead zombie and they don't register that something alive is actually touching them.

Just tell guests it's a new scented candle that you got for Christmas.

(Wow, the word verification for this comment spells "retail")

Is that centigrade or fahrenheit?

I managed weeks with only my PDA's wifi keeping me online, it's not ideal but it's enough to keep the net addiction pangs at bay :o)

The "good news" part reminded me of the joke about the man who got a phonecall from his wife and was told there was good and bad news. The good news being "The airbags on your ferrari worked perfectly"...

FB, it's a tricky endeavor for sure!

EB, that's spoooooooky! ;)

Tod, I totally will! Heheheh.

Lexiloo, I was sad about the bacon! And, sounds like you've been cold too!

Dominic, [weiiiiiird] my temperatures are in Celsius.... is that Centgrade (feeling really dumb). And yes, you can feed your addiction with your PDA if you have to ;) And I totally forgot about that joke!

Centigrade is the old school way of measuring temperatures. We use Celsius now. They're the same scale, just different. Here is your science lesson :)

Yeah, same thing, different name. Don't ask me why. Almost certainly the fault of the French :D
