OOoh yes! I would love to be put on a pyre! What a way to go. Tongue

I want to be burned on land, though. Atop a giant pile of wood who's flames reach higher than the canopy.

Not that I will know about it, I just think it would be cool to be remembered that way.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Took the day off, woke up early, got ready, and my dentist has to cancel my appointment for an emergency patient. What do I do with myself now for the next three hours until my doctor's appointment?

Plus I had to reschedule the dentist appointment to tomorrow at 8am on my "treat yoself" day Weeping

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

If this storm keeps up at the current level I will need SCUBA gear to get to school tonight.

We need rain, but holy crap!

RE: Ranting corner
So, I got an important phone call this morning from Microsoft security saying "my Windows pc was being hacked by the nterwebz"

Totally not shitting you...they said INTERWEBZ.

I told the caller I don't own a PC.
He argued with me, saying it was imperative that I go to a web address so they could remotely save my PC.

I told him again I don't own a PC.

He again argued...

So, I told him that I would go to my imaginary computer and boot it up. (yes I said imaginary).

I waited 5 minutes with the guy still on the line. Then PRETENDED to type in the fake address....

I actually said. click click click tap click clcik click...." This went on for each character and happily told the caller his website didn't come up because my imaginary virus protection forbid me from going further.

He argued again that my computer was being hacked by the interwebz..

I reminded him that I don't own a PC therefore I do not have windows to be hacked.

Then I hung up....

Then he called back....4 more times.

4th call I answer...it's a "manager" who tells me again with much urgency that my Windows PC is being hacked by the interweb. (he didn't say interwebz like his predecessor).

I'm bored so I ask which window is being hacked (because I have like 14 windows in my home).

He said the window closest to me (again totally not shitting you) so I tap on the window the secret web address (you could hear my fingernails clicking on the glass) and told him that I was there...

He said he couldn't be because they couldn't detect my computer..,

I told the guy that he told me to tap on the window closest to me.

"NO no ma'am" I need you to go to your computer..."

I replied, "I don't own one."

HE insisted that I go to my computer that I don't own and go to the web address so they could save my computer (that I don't own) from being hacked.

It was like arguing with a fucking theist.

When you get your imaginary PC all booted up...call them back...after cocktail hour is in full swing.

Not after a call like that, it's not.

Moms, I love you a bit more now after reading that. Those people are scumbags to the extreme and hearing about people fucking with them and wasting their time gives me a warm feeling inside. (that also may be the rum).

The greatest was when I was onsite fixing someone's computer after they fell for that type of scam and they called back to try to get more money out of her. If you've never witnessed an 80+ year old lithuanian woman cursing someone out, you are missing an amazing sight. She refused to translate a few of the things she said, but I'm fairly certain she said some awful things about the guy's mother's promiscuity.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Hey now, don't be greedy with that rain.

We need a lot down here in the farming regions. And I mean a lot.
Donate rain today.

Cool. I actually know a person who received that scam call!

I almost wish I'd get one of those calls. I think I might be able to have fun.
