Silly Site o' the Day

Who am I to blow against the wind?

Via everywhere but of course Google gets the credit. Wow, I really needed that this evening.

Silly Site o' the Day

Will there never come a day when I won't be tired, I wonder? Hoping the impending autumn will energize me again, but the fiscal year end at work is taking its toll, and it didn't help that the elevator at Midtown Comics wasn't operational, that was two flights up and down that I really didn't need. So enjoy this soother with me:

Silly Site o' the Day

The best part of a day off is not having to dress for work. The worst part is, if you don't dress for work, your chances of finding these funny clothing tags diminishes somewhat.

Silly Site o' the Day

Woo-hoo, my laptop updated just fine in the night and I was good to go today! And so much forward movement. I left with an empty in-box, which hardly ever happens, and I think I'll be in great shape to take on back-up duties for my coworker and friend Lynne when she takes off on Friday for a week-long 25th anniversary cruise. Still haven't updated my iPhone to iOS 12 as I need to await the go-ahead from my company but, as I said, this lovely precious small phone is apparently not long for this world as far as Apple is concerned. So here are some reactions to an older Apple product everyone's no longer talking about.

Silly Site o' the Day

Another tough day at work, made even worse by my lack of "rest and recharge" time over the weekend. But I think I've gotten enough of a handle on things to be able to take Wednesday off without too much difficulty. I left my laptop to update the latest Windows iteration overnight in the hopes that all will be installed when I return tomorrow. Crossing fingers. Could be worse, could be the newest iPhones:

Silly Site o' the Day

Still pretty exhausted, even though I had an afternoon nap, but still managed to shop, do the washing up, and even iron a few tops. This was not destined to be a "rest and recharge" weekend I suppose. Back to my pack of millennial coworkers tomorrow. Thank goodness I have the vocab down:

Or maybe not. Via Laughing Squid.

Silly Site o' the Day

As I suspected, I had a very hard time waking up today, but I was ready to hit the road at noon, venture into Manhattan (15 minutes to get to the 95th St. exit off the West Side Highway, a half an hour to get across town to pick up my friend) and head out to NJ for a periodic Girls' Day out with two former coworkers. Everything seemed to be a half hour later than planned, which meant when W and I hit the GWB on the way back it took us 45 minutes to get through all the merges to even make it onto the bridge. And Manhattan was once again a bit of a nightmare, made worse by the fact that night driving is really not my thing. But everyone made it home safely and next time we're just glad K will be coming into Manhattan and W and I can take public transit once more. Whatever our differences, W and K and I do share a love for music, so in honor of our day out here are some more awkward album covers.

Silly Site o' the Day

I'm so tired I can barely keep my eyes open. The foot's a bit better, but work was so relentless today that I feel like my brain's turning into tapioca. Which I believe I can put between buns (via BoingBoing). Big day tomorrow, so g'night!

Silly Site o' the Day

Tough day at work, very busy from start to finish, but lots accomplished. Unfortunately my foot is acting up, and I've worn braces much of the day and am currently using a cane. And I'm so, so tired. So I'm hitting the hay and leaving you with some celebrity "real names."

Silly Site o' the Day

A very broken night yesterday meant mitigating the humidity with AC even though the temps aren't that high. Slept well enough to get trough my day, although I hope I haven't forgotten anything...
