My computer is still being mean, so I'll have to take it in to be fixed. Last time, the problem was that dog hair from Snickers somehow got inside the computer and messed up the fan. I think the same thing has happened again.
So I'll be using a different computer this week.
This past week, I was on a forced vacation in Oregon, and I'll probably write about that in the next few posts. I will have pictures, both pictures I took with a camera and drew with a pen. No pictures of me, however. I don't shave on vacation, so I looked scruffy the whole time.
Today, we had an eight-hour car drive back home, which I don't recommend. We listened to music on the radio for a while. A lot of break-up songs disparage fairy tales, I've noticed. They're always saying things like "This isn't a fairy tale", "I'm not going to wait for a Prince Charming", "It's not happily ever after for us" and "Jack, don't climb that beanstalk!". Okay, I made that last one up, but still. Song writers, find a new metaphor.
We also played "The Guessing Game", which is where someone thinks of a movie/TV show, and the other people have to figure out what it is by asking a bunch of yes or no questions. It's basically twenty questions without a twenty question limit.
We got stuck on Disney Channel movies for a while, and we had fun coming up with about various plots that they use a lot--asking questions like "Is there a popular kid who's mean to the hero?", "Is there a person the hero has a crush on, but he's too shy to admit it until the end of the movie?", and "Does she have a parent who's too busy to see any of her sports games?"
And there were over 200 emails waiting for me when I got back home.
