while waiting for my ride
here's a quick recap of my past week:
got at my dad's place last sunday. did nothing basically. spent most of the time doing one of these:
(1) setting up dad's pc. the problem with dad is he never reads instruction manuals. none. zilch. it wasn't only dad's pc i had to set up - there's the atomic clock (a clock that doesn't need time settings! it's radio controlled from fort carson, feeding us the exact time and date and temperature outside and inside the house. pretty neat); the new tv, setting it up with the satellite and the dvd player and the sound system; the printer slash fax machine; the internet.
(2) decorating the place. marie is a decorator freak, this year's theme is garlands. every door frame is decorated with garlands and acorns, or garlands and mistle toes, or garlands and christmas balls. my balls are the only ones not decorated with garlands.
(3) assemblying dad's desk. now that was A project. took us about three hours or so, how would i know, i stopped counting after two hours. lemme see if i can find a pic...
still need to buy a chair though. and to fill 'er up with books and papers and what not.
