1,000 Hits & other random thoughts

April 28, 2008

I was just checking for comments on my blog and saw to my surprise that I have over 1,000 hits.  That’s significant I think.  It’s kinda crazy that so many folks have perused my thoughts.  Now only if I could say things that would spark more conversation.

I have a new laptop (yay!) and I like it a lot.  It’s a Dell Vostro 1400.  Only problem is sometimes (read more often than not) the ‘v’ key doesn’t work.  I’m not sure if it’s the way my finger hits the key or what but it’s making me a bit crazy.

I found out today that I will definitely be going to the next session meeting to present/answer questions about/etc./????? my Form One.  I am not sure what to expect but I am pretty sure it will go well.  If there is one thing the Navy prepared me for (and there are many to be sure) it’s having oral boards with people asking me all kinds of crazy questions.  Granted they were never personal in nature so that will be an interesting dynamic.

I had two run ins with the law this past week.  Well, kinda.  The first one, I was driving home from a church service/hanging out at a friends house when I see blue flashing lights in my rear view.  How craptastic (to use a phase that J has reportedly coined.  So I turn off on the next street and get my license out.  The police officer comes to my window and says, “Your headlight is out.”  And I swear I heard angels sing.  No ticket, no citation, just friendly assistance.  The second time wasn’t really with the law.  Well, at least not in the same sense.  See, what had happened was…I was at my uncles house which is a bit more in the sticks than where I am.  It’s not far away, but it’s far enough away that the nearest convienence store is “Little Earles.”  (I would link but get this, they don’t have a website!).  When I left his house, I wasn’t headed home, so I had to think about how to get from Point A to Point B.  Well, I failed.  I made a left at Albequerque (spelling?) instead of a right.  And where did I end up?  I Toll Booth with NO CASH.  Great.  And there was no place to turn around.  So I had to fill out this stupod form that I have 7 days to mail off to pay my $2 toll for a wrong turn.  Oh…and then the other $2 for the return trip through the toll so I could go the direction I should have gone to begin with.  That was one expensie wrong turn!  I mean it’s only $4, but for a wrong turn?  Sheesh!
