Random Thoughts for March 6th

Here we go again. There might be some complaining. There might be some NASCAR talk. This is my house, so it’s my prerogative to say whatever the hell I want. If you don’t like it, then don’t read it.  :razz2:

I finally decided to upgrade this place to WP 3.1. I was holding off because I want to start over from scratch. There’s so much residual crap from past incarnations. But I also want to redo my professional website in CodeIgniter. I figured I’d better just upgrade now. I can still start over from scratch (importing posts & comments). I just hope we’re not at 3.5 by the time I get around to it. LOL

I took the time to download all the files and backup and database before doing the actual upgrade. The upgrade took less time than it did to back everything up. And as far as I can tell, there are no issues after the upgrade. But it’s better to be safe than sorry, right? 🙂

I absolutely hate taking the clean dishes out of the dishwasher and putting them away. But I don’t mind putting the dirty ones in the dishwasher. There have been times where I left the clean dishes in until the sink was full of enough dirty ones to run the dishwasher. I have no idea why, but then again, I have never claimed to be normal. :crazy:

race-setupI’m cheating on my social media blackout today. Well, I actually cheated on it last week by checking the Twitter website a few times (& Facebook too), but I didn’t launch TweetDeck at all … until today. But I’m only watching my NASCAR column for updates before and during the race. I’ll close it back down again after the race. The broadcast misses so much, and I follow so many NASCAR media and crew people that update during the race. I don’t think I could watch a race without Twitter.

FOX … what the fuck? There’s a car on fire on the track under green and you show cars BEHIND it and then cut to an in-car view of the car on fire (where you can’t even tell it’s on fire)? That does the viewers no good. Show shit LIVE rather than by sponsored replays you assholes.

Crap. I’m making a roast for supper, and I only have 4 little tators. :frown:

==========

I think I know why I never cook anymore. I’m freaked that I’ll set off the smoke alarms. Not with my cooking ‘cuz dammit I can cook. But because the damn smoke alarms are hyper-sensitive. Just put the roast in and can already smell the onions (since I don’t have a rack that would fit in the pan, I made one out of onions). Heart sinks thinking I’m gonna have to yank it out later before it’s done because I don’t wanna set off those damn alarms. I know that an irrational fear, but those alarms ARE sensitive. Or maybe it’s just my yearning for a house that makes me hate this apartment (and everything in it) so damn much.

==========

I really wish FOX’s coverage of this race was better so that it would distract me from the roast in the oven. But this coverage is AWFUL!

==========

There are no words for this race broadcast by FOX. At least, no words that wouldn’t make my Mommy yell at me for saying. :banghead: :censored:

==========

Roast turned out perfect. And not even a puff of smoke. I guess I worried for nothing. And I even had tators left over.
