Some of Today’s News in Atlanta

I man­aged to avoid the crime news, which is always hor­rif­ic. Okay, I most­ly avoid­ed it. The three boys under 10 who are being charged with kid­nap­ping and rape is get­ting to me. That poor lit­tle girl! Trans­gen­der can­di­date mis­led vot­ers, suit alleges Actu­al­ly, these guys seem to be suing every­body but the dog­catch­er down there […]

Why Am I Seeing Red?

I went to bed, leav­ing the com­put­er on because I was in the mid­dle of some­thing. I got up to find every­thing dis­played washed in red. Meep. I haven’t had a dis­play prob­lem like this since 1992 or so when I had a crap­py Gate­way mon­i­tor with a pro­pri­etary cable that went weird. I’ve checked all the […]

Date Night, Reading, School Stuff

I was a naughty girl today, too caught up in read­ing A Few Demons More to do my home­work. Bad girl. To be fair, I was also tak­ing care of my Katie baby, who had a fever and was near­ly deliri­ous.

Last night I real­ized that some­thing was wrong with this blog. Sev­er­al days of posts had­n’t appeared, and I could­n’t even leave a com­ment on an old post. The error mes­sage I was get­ting (data­base access denied) made no sense.  The MySQL infor­ma­tion had­n’t changed. I tried chang­ing the data­base pass­word and updat­ing the settings—nope, no […]

Please note: Yes, I am refer­ring to today, the 12th, which is my birth­day. Those close to me know that I gen­er­al­ly hate my birth­day, as it’s a reminder of mul­ti­ple mis­car­riages and oth­er nasty things hap­pen­ing around this time sev­er­al years in a row.
