My replacement iPhone case arrived today!!
Now, it’ll be back to feeling like I’m with a milf rather than a virgin.
On a brighter note, I set the cycle and turned on both the washing machine and dryer from the iPad.
What’s really stupid about it all….you have to be physically at both at one point to press the “Enable SmartControl” button on the LCD touchpad.
So, big deal. They have MAC and IP addresses on my wireless network. But, the app is effectively a novelty that allows you to press “Start” on a phone or pad and piss all over yourself with excitement, see the timers counting down and what not.
But, until they can load themselves, put in the detergent, move from the washing machine to dryer and fold the clothes after all that’s done, it can get more frustrating than it’s worth.
However, the catchy tune it plays when it powers up and a cycle is complete beat the nagging buzzer of olden models.
Truck insurance - check
Life insurance - check
Homeowner insurance - check
The moral of this story: I’m worth more if the house explodes and kills me and destroys my truck
Technology can be a good thing sometimes.
The police were of no use. While the phone stayed at the same location for 20 minutes, they looked over video to see if they could find evidence of someone taking the purse. Hey lawman! Possession of stolen property still means something, doesn’t it?
After tracking the phone for 30 minutes or more (and contacting credit card companies to cancel cards and what not), I decided to put the phone in Lost Mode. On the screen, I put the following:
"This phone has been stolen. Please contact me immediately."
No more than 20 minutes later, they were back at the same Walmart and put the purse near a trash can where some upstanding citizen turned into security.
I was on the phone with the girl at the bank who I had been speaking with earlier when they brought the purse to her. It still has her purse, cellphone, etc… Not sure what got stolen out of the purse as there was a fresh $600 she’d just taken out of the bank, but the good thing is most of it appears to be intact.
Score one for technology and the good guys!!
LADIES!! It’s that time of year where people are looking for the easy way to enjoy Christmas. Let this story be a reminder…….
WATCH YOUR PURSES LIKE A DAMN RED TAIL HAWK!!
Using Find My iPhone to locate it and hopefully help the police, but I’m starting to think it’d be quicker if I just left to go find it myself.
For years, I have been a caffeine junkie. And coffee has been my primary, but not sole, elixir.
I’m already cringing as I think of my doc putting me on BP meds next week, but I simply haven’t been doing what I should to change my escalating BP.
I made a decent attempt to get back into aerobic walking earlier this year. I KNOW that is the numero uno thing I need to do but haven’t done consistently enough to make a difference.
But, that’s no excuse to not start making changes elsewhere that will help.
So, as much as I like coffee, I’ve decided I’ll be cutting back on that and other caffeinated beverages.
I lost my phone for several hours on Friday. It fell outta my pullover pocket and wedged in behind the seat frame in my truck. I looked for hours before finding it. Started developing a headache along the way.
Found it within 30 minutes of needing to leave for the Amos Lee concert. By this time, I was starting to feel tired and not really jacked up to see the concert. It was good, but I just couldn’t get into it.
Saturday, I got up with the same headache. And I’m still feeling tired. I did a couple of errands, but spent a good portion of the day on the couch watching rivalry football. My team came back from a 20 point deficit to beat our in-state rivalry in overtime. But I only got mildly excited about that.
Same headache yesterday. By now, I’m realizing it’s not just a normal headache. Take my blood pressure. It was 148/96. My doctor has been noting my BP creeping up and I’ve started, mildly, trying to get back into aerobic excising.
Late yesterday afternoon, I tried putting up the Christmas tree. It is pre-lit artificial tree with 1000 lights. It takes a while to shape all the branches, but I’ve loved this tree since we first got it. But, when I started plugging up the lights, there are several strings of the lights not working at all. I just haven’t felt like taking the time and determining where the problem is.
Late yesterday afternoon, I learned my boss lost his battle with cancer.
Hey cancer! Fuck you with a capital “F”.
Now, my BP is 144/93.
I’m fairly certain my doctor will put me on BP medicine when I see in him on the 12th. I’m hoping this will be the trigger I need to turn my life back in the right direction.
I should probably just seriously consider sinus surgery. With the recurring issue of blood pooling in my sinuses and causing clotting issues in my nostrils, it seems to be a never ending cycle trying to keep them sufficiently flushed out so it’s not an issue.
It’s sad to admit, but I now feel I’m on that downhill slope of life. My body feels like it’s turning against me and I’m increasingly loosing the motivation to do things I need to do to make my life marginally better.
I wished the hell I could shake this melancholy feeling. Hoping some live music Friday night will help.
Happy Thanksgiving to all
