 :cheer: Yes, you're right, I am on the computer a lot. I run 2 websites, one for living donors and one for kidney patients. I also do other things between reading all kidney related international and national news and answering emails. I check ebay, send e-cards, edit and post my photos on flickr, communicate with friends on facebook and twitter, help my son with research for high school, and other miscellaneous things. But Farmville...? Nope. Too much time spent on one thing. I already walked an hour and a half this morning so I don't mind sitting. Now I need to go out and pick the oranges off our tree, it is loaded with beautiful ripe navel oranges. I will see you again soon tyefly!

I remember summer afternoons spent picking wild strawberries in the rolling fields behind my great-grandmother's house.  One in the mouth, one in the bucket. . . and still bringing home enough for strawberry shortcake on homemade biscuits for the family for dessert.  Has anything ever tasted that good since then?

The same way that people can turn from seemingly normal to astonishingly silly in the blink of an eye.   :flower;

The new game show on NBC called "Minute to Win it" looks like an hour of every bad bridal and baby shower game ever invented - only thing it lacks are dish towels for prizes...

It occurred to me today as I found myself sorting and tossing broken jingle balls and ripped up toy mice from the little bin that keeps all the cat's stuff collected between her play times, that it really is possible to unclutter TOO much....time to get a life!

I've never understood the desire to wear pants with "Juicy" stamped across the butt, either. . .


Random frustration for the day - waiting on the phone to get thru to the surgeon's office to arrange a follow up appointment.  Every other voice message between the bad musak is a chipper woman telling me that I can access the website to make an appointment.  Sounds better than waiting on hold, so I turn on my computer and look for the website while I'm grooving to instrumental synthesizer covers of bad 70's pop.  Find the website, find the appointment section, and realize that the only thing on the page is.....the contact phone number I've just called.   :waiting;
