Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it.

Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment.

Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
Green Mole in Love
Hmmmm, I got this at Radiogurl's.
Not sure I agree with the first two at all.
And the take more than I give. Now that is weird. No. I tend to give too much. People have told me that I do. That they feel stressed since they don't ever have the time or resources to even it out. That by the time they have 'repaid' some nicety I have given, I have already done something else generous and nice or out of my way. I reply that allowing me to give when I have the pulsion is already a gift to me, and I certainly don't expect repayment or for things to equal out. I just love thinking of someone and seeing their reaction when I make them happy or their life a bit easier. I DO warn that if I feel taken for granted though that it might just be the end. Do NOT take for granted or as an entitlement that I give of myself.
The rest I rather agree with.
Dang, I am behind on my work. I had hoped to have sent off the last chapter of sketches to South Korea, but the scanner is acting up. Froze my operating system up in that it wouldn't scan, wouldn't quit the scanner application, wouldn't force quit the application (window just in hang on my screen) and when I tried to restart, the usual mac cure-all, i just got a 'restart' window hanging on my screen too. And ditto when I tried to shut down the puter, thinking if I shut it off, it would quit all applications and I could restart the puter. hah. Nothing happened. The scanner still hung, and every other application on the puter worked. At one point I had four hanging windows on my screen... one saying "if you do nothing the computer will restart in 13 seconds" and another saying "the computer will automatically shut off in 19 seconds".... and it stayed like that for FOUR HOURS before suddenly restarting.
Which helped things a bit... as the windows disappeared. But when I tried to restart the scanner application it just told me that there IS no scanner. (yes, all the cables were in). And then when I tried to print something it told me I had no printer. Weirdly the printer worked totally fine last night. aaagh.
So I haven't been able to scan and send the sketches I did yesterday to South Korea to make them happy. And because I worked on those last night I didn't finish the work I wanted to have done last Wed nite. (that I didn't rush to do, since I was trying to get everything ready for the puter guy, and the client for my work said he was out of town til this week. ack)...
so I am just doing well, but behind.
i also did my comic page but cannot scan it to upload it either.
Thousands of dollars, the puter is slower and more annoying in most ways possible, and totally unworkable for the visual stuff I need to do . Argh.
do not change your computer on a Friday.... the puter guy will be unavailable all weekend. agh.
Tonight I went out for mexican food. mmmm. I had some chicken with green mole. Yumm. And we had very good and different guacamole. Very little tomato, seemed to have no chili, but lots of lime and pepper and the avocado was still chunky. mmmmm.
And pecan pie (not at the mexican restaurant). The dinner was with l'Ecrivaine. She is all happy cuz she had more writing accepted for publication. And her renovations on her house are going great. Nice job. I can understand, now that I am a homeowner, how happy that can make one. If only I could do MY bathroom!
OK, that's enough for now. Totally have to finish working and get to bed (I'm waiting for the last load of laundry). This week? Deliver this job, finish South Korea sketches and start finals. Do finals for another novel, and sketches for a third novel. Make a million tons of pesto with the garden basil.
