PC ponders...

I try not to think deep thoughts very often because they make my head hurt. I'll stay in the shallow end, thanks.

Here's my current list of wading-pool depth ponderable topics:

1.) How do three people create six loads of laundry in one week?

2.) Why, when I hit "Send/Receive" on my email program and nothing comes in, do I hit it again? Do I think it missed something?

3.) Why do people not from Alabama like to sing "Sweet Home Alabama?"

4.) Why is the power button on the back of my printer, requiring me to contort myself to turn the silly thing on? All power buttons should be on the front, right?

5.) What in the hell does an Amazon sales ranking mean? And does anyone know how it works?

6.) Where does all the damn dust come from? I just dusted, for dog's sake.

7.) Why is this book so hard to write?

8.) Why do the networks cancel TV shows two episodes after I get interested in them?

9.) Why can I remember my 8th grade BFF's phone number (her parent's house circa 1985, mind you, not her current one), but I have leave myself notes to remember my online banking password?

10.) Why is every garbage truck in America in serious need of a break job?

Answers, anyone? Bueller? Jump right in. Or tell me what you're pondering today.

PS: And a very Happy Birthday to my mom today!

Happy birthday PC's Mom!

1.) How do three people create six loads of laundry in one week? By wearing lots of clothes?

2.) Why, when I hit "Send/Receive" on my email program and nothing comes in, do I hit it again? Do I think it missed something? Obviously you do. I do the same thing, so don't feel too bad.

3.) Why do people not from Alabama like to sing "Sweet Home Alabama?" Cause it's a catchy song.

4.) Why is the power button on the back of my printer, requiring me to contort myself to turn the silly thing on? All power buttons should be on the front, right? The power button on my printer IS on the front.

5.) What in the hell does an Amazon sales ranking mean? And does anyone know how it works? Uh...

6.) Where does all the damn dust come from? I just dusted, for dog's sake. When you find out, let me know. I'm convinced all the electronic equipment we have is a dust magnet.

7.) Why is this book so hard to write? Same reason mine's so hard to edit?

8.) Why do the networks cancel TV shows two episodes after I get interested in them? Cause they know you're interested.

9.) Why can I remember my 8th grade BFF's phone number (her parent's house circa 1985, mind you, not her current one), but I have leave myself notes to remember my online banking password? Same reason I can remember my childhood phone number but not my mother's current number and the same reason that after almost 36 years of marriage, sometimes I sign something with my maiden name.

10.) Why is every garbage truck in America in serious need of a break job? The economy, I guess. They blame everything else on it, so why not garbage truck brakes?

And what am I pondering? I'm pondering whether this book is a serious piece of crap or if it's just doubt and fear coming through.

verification word = moniack
Sounds like maniac to me.

Happy Birthday PC's Mom!!!!

I'm not going to try an answer all your questions. I do have one of my own. How come I do one load of laundry a day but I can never get caught up with only 2 people in the house? HELP!!!!!

Have a great day.

Happy Birthday PC's Mom!

I think whatever brakes they put on those big trucks are the kind they put on my car. Squeals to high heaven. I took the car back, then said it was fine, put some anti-squeal that lasted about a day. "Some brakes just do that." Great. I'm hoping they will grow out of it, like a phase.

What am I pondering today? I'm pondering the Golden Heart announcements tomorrow and wondering if I only gave them my home number, which means if they call, I won't know about it until after 7 that night.

Today I'm just contemplating if things will ever slow down around here!

Laundry: hmm, I think it multiplies when you aren't looking.

Alabama song: I don't know, but it's so much more fun to sing it now that I live in Alabama. ;-)

I do the send/receive thing too.

Dust is never-ending around here. Not sure why.

Books are always hard to write I'm beginning to believe.

I've given up on network television.

Amazon: there is no rhyme or reason, so don't stress yourself. In the big scheme of things, I think it means next to nothing.

My obsession: what happened to my lovely editor. *sigh*

Happy Birthday PC's Mom!

Why does dust in the house really only make my allergies worse when I actually dust?

I have to agree that the networks seem to cancel lots of shows just when I find them.

Angel said...

Liza, I've found my husband's and son's allergies act up when I dust too. I think it has to do with stirring it up, so it is floating on the air, rather than attached to the furniture. :)

Now I use one of those swiffer dusters, because there is less movement, and do it when they aren't home.
