Money is so stupid.
Natter 77: I miss my friends. I miss my enemies. I miss the people I talked to every day.
Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, butt kicking, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.
But then again, it's only on paper (or online) right now. None of that matters if we're not cashing out right now, which we're not.
Yeah, I only move to "cash" because Vanguard makes it so easy to do so without actually cashing out. And I wouldn't even do that if I had other money to buy in with when there are drops. Which I don't sadly. One day I'll start contributing to my retirement again but I haven't really been able to since becoming self-employed.
Yeah, I’ll be looking at my 401k again in 10 years. Or maybe not that but no time soon.
Wishes for hot cocoa (or toddies) and a nice warm crackling fire for my NE snowbound Buffistas.
I have my windows open, but I wouldn't say no to an Irish Coffee.
I'm back to the nibbled to death by ducks stage. Our office final final move was scheduled for last Friday, but streets were blocked off for the right to life march/gathering. In light of that, I'd scheduled today off but the move was rescheduled for today, so I took yesterday off. Came in this morning wearing clothes suitable for moving only to discover that it's been rescheduled ... indefinitely. And my full-size monitor isn't getting a signal from the computer so I'm hunched over trying to read the tiny laptop screen. Tried incr5easing the size but half my icons disappeared.
There's snow predicted - nothing like what was predicted for the Northeast - but the town's freaked out, as usual. I think the snowplow's still available, but they've done the pre-treatment (which seems to be beet juice and salt ... don't ask, I have no idea, but the street's not even pink).\
I may give up, go home and go back to bed.
So yesterday they were saying < 3″ of snow, but this morning they’re saying 8–11″, and probably even more in New England.
They've been saying 1-2" here, but WXRisk (a weather guy whose stuff I like) thinks we'll be in the dry slot, so we probably will get a dusting at best. I shouldn't be sad—we've already gotten more snow than usual around here this month. And there's a solid shot at snow in a week, too.
Calli, it occurred to me that if your soup isn't as good as you hoped, adding some shredded cheese on top and letting it melt might help. It's good on soup regardless of the quality (for bean soup, I prefer Monterey Jack cheese, but it's up to you).
In more me me me news, since the tech support people were here to see if they can get things fixed up for The Move, one of them took a look at my monitor and got it working. yay! now I can sit upright and actually see what's on the display.
Dang, Toddson, that move seems to have been going on forever and now it's officially indefinite? Jeesh.
Money is so stupid.
Decent size monitors make a world of difference.
