when you wish upon a star

once upon a time i thought to myself,

"man, i wish there were some way to
open up schedule so i could go
to the gym regularly again -
i really miss running!..."

to which God responded by
giving my boyfriend a
full-time, night-time summer job
that would neatly cut out
any possible chances of me
ever seeing him
ever again


...He thinks He's sooooooooo funny....!

i'm celebrating my recent reunion with my blog with a GAME!

so, to my very limited number of friends who used to read my blog
before i got out of the habit of writing
who might possibly read this and get a kick out of it:

i will give you a candy bar/carton of ice cream of your choice
if you can guess what song (& artist) this
i-may-not-make-it-through-sunday-school sketch came from!*

it's that simple.
good luck ;)

*apologies go out to my boyfriend, chris**, who cannot guess because he was the inspiration for and recipient of the sketch for texting me the line that brought about this amazing piece of artwork. sorry, cavalheiro - you know too much.

**...of course, he'd have to know that i even HAD a blog in order to try and guess...but seeing as i haven't written in forever, he's never been exposed to my brilliant work ;)

the latest anti-tech-depressant

Today I learned how to open an un-openable file.

Some people trick their email into sending zipped files they wouldn’t normally be able to send by changing the .zip to .zi or, in my case, .zi_ . If you try to open a .zi_ file, you will get an ugly error that will convince you your computer hates you and has no self-esteem.

But if you ask the all-knowing-buddah named

Google ,
*insert heavenly celestial choir chord here*

You will discover that your computer is just unhappy and confused because the same dirty trick that fooled your email into sending a document wouldn’t normally want to is now confusing your desktop into thinking it’s too inadequate to open such a complicated piece of documentation.

For SHAME, trisky smart people who know how to manipulate poor little electronics!

But all can be made right again by saving the file somewhere and editing the name to have it once again called by its proper name, .zip , which your sweet computer DOES recognize and CAN, with all confidence, open, edit, print and file away for you!


Now you will get your work done and your computer will buzz with a glowing self-assurance that it never knew before!

Cue the rejoicing.
