So - here's a neat little thing for you to try: [link]
I scored 4 my first time. Surprisingly - each time I did it after that, I scored worse and worse - but my eyes were exhausted! It's hard - but very interesting to find out which colour hues my eyes had trouble discerning.
I was at that site because a while ago I acquired a screen calibrator - it's called an i1. It's a great little gadget. This week I got a surprise in the mail from them. It's called a "color checker" card and it's a black card with all different colour chips on it. I think it's supposed to help you with setting your camera colour or something - but I really don't understand how to use it. They also sent me a nifty little carrying case. I was surprised to just get a freebie like that. Pretty cool company - check them out!
We have this friend. Well, "friend" is a pretty loose term - but he's this guy we know. Our children played hockey together this winter. We are planning a wind up party for the summer, and we sent out a letter to the team explaining that we'd like to all go out to the lake in June and have a BBQ, take the kids tubing, etc.
So we get a reply from him that says "I can hardly wait to see your wife emerge from the lake. We can all take turns throwing things in her blowhole."
WHAT???!! What the hell did I do?? Well, I couldn't let him best me like that so of course, I replied.
I mentioned a few things about what I thought of him which I shall not utter here as it could shock some of you who are under the misunderstanding that I am a lady. Then I went on to say how much I'd be looking forward to seeing him come out of the cold water because, seriously, there's not a lot of room for shrinkage, and how if things were to shrink any smaller he'd end up with an innie, and I finished off the letter with this statement:
"If we are going to talk about whales, we should probably be talking about you........ Moldy Dick"
Surprisingly, I never heard back from him. I'm sure there will be hugs and kisses all around next time I see him. What a guy. He's lucky I wasn't in my "sensitive" stage of the month or I may have even had to visit him. With a baseball bat.
Does anyone here use Window Vista? I upgraded with my new computer and it's pretty good - but I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to delete the pictures from my camera card using it. With XP I'd just "move"them from the card to the computer folders, or I could select them and delete them but with Vista there is no "move" or "delete" option. It's very annoying and there has GOT to be a way to do it.
So I went for Physio on my shoulder this week. The guy (who is amazing) found the sore spot on my shoulder and the muscle was knotted and knobby so he rubbed the heck out of it. It felt great later - until about 7 hours later when the muscles in my upper shoulder and neck started spazzing out and I got this pinched nerve feeling in my neck. For 2 days I was hopped up on muscle relaxers and sitting around here with alternate ice/heat packs on my shoulder/neck/head. Not a lot of fun. It's still a bit sore and crampy - but much better than it was. Shoulder feels not too bad though!
Ahhhh - my friends, my friends.... thanks for suffering through my endless drivel.
