I had an old grade school friend visit the house yesterday. He didn’t recognize me, but I recognized him. He was a social outcast in school and had a terrible stuttering problem. I felt for him as he still stuttered something terrible yesterday. He wanted to cut my grass and my heart went out to him. He looked so poor – like dirt poor. I didn’t have a dollar to my name, but offered for him to come inside and have a soda. He looked hot and was sweating profusely. “Gotta find some yards to cut. I need money badly,” he promptly replied and left. His name was Jeff. I would have given him the shirt off my back if he needed it. I just couldn’t give him any money. The joys of my economy.
I went on a wild search for an unlocked bios for my gaming computer’s video card. With the luck of Google, I found it! I flashed the bios and overclocked my video card till I had artifacts and backed it off some. I am now running at GTX levels and that card was $200 dollars more expensive than mine. Ah, the joys of overclocking – getting power for free.
Fun With Dad…
Dad was excited last night because I cleaned my house when he brought my medications.
“Let me look at every room!” he said walking throughout the house. “This is just wonderful. Won’t you sleep better tonight with a clean house?”
I blushed, but loved the positive attention. We then took my meds, fed Maggie, and sat down to talk for the day. I told dad how excited I was to talk to my high school friend Dori and to read her blog. Our class reunion is coming up July 17th and dad asked me if I was going.
“I’d rather be drawn and quartered,” I replied. “I didn’t like most of those people when I was in high school and I doubt they’ve changed much since then.”
Dad told me I had a terrible attitude about the whole affair. I just laughed it off. I really don’t want to go. It would be social anxiety hell.
Becoming a Twitter Lover…
I am really enjoying Twitter! As with anything, you get out of it what you put into it. I am chatting with people all over the world! The UK. Australia. New Zealand. Germany. I had a woman send me a message this morning that the Chinese food in Australia was rubbish and they don’t even give you an eggroll. i laughed and wrote back that I was going to express mail her some eggrolls.
I also had an interaction with a guy named ThatNeilGuy and it miffed me. I had wrote I hated the dealsplus posts everybody does and that I would unfollow anyone who did it, and he started sending me dealsplus retweets. I couldn't decide if he was kidding or serious. i just laughed in my usual kind way and tried to play along. I love his tweets and would hate to unfollow him.
There is another lady I am so connected with right now. She’s had breast cancer and a double mastectomy and just hates God and blames him for her woes. I can so understand how she feels with my own trials and tribulations with schizophrenia. There was a time in my life I abhorred religion and God – blaming him for all my problems – that he was mean and unjust. I just couldn’t understand how a loving and kind God would allow such an abomination to happen. I just listen to her tweets and try to be supportive. I don’t preach or try to sway her back to the light. Live and learn as the old saying goes.
