Happy Saturday to all. And to all a good night. No seriously, today has been a fairly good day--minus my temper flare-ups thanks to "Microsoft Word has encountered a problem and needs to close." To send or not to send (error report), that is the question. And my answer is NO. Why send an error report? Surely this problem has happened to other people besides just me. I mean really, there are roughly 6 billion people in the world and the population is growing substantially as I speak (or rather, type). Many of these people--though certainly not all--are slaves to MS Word. Right? So, the odds of this "problem" that has been "encountered" only happening to me, of all these users? Not likely. If this has happened to others, surely at least one person has sent an error report, and it appears that nothing has happened thus far. And what would happen if I did send a report? Would they send me a fresh new copy of Word for free? Doubtful. So anyway, I save my work, say a prayer, and hope the program doesn't commit suicide.
That being said, I'm caught up on my homework, in a way. Most syllabi map out the semester's schedule fairly well, so I can keep ahead in many classes. This is a plus (and hopefully an A+ if things go as planned) because there is a slight possibility that I might start working more regularly again this spring. I'm going to need to--I got a paycheck yesterday and a credit card bill today. And the amount of the bill was about double the check amount. Granted, the card's balance was from a 30 day +/- period, but the paycheck is on a 15-day period. Think about that a moment. Living a little beyond means perhaps?
Mom, Grandma, Vickie, Brandy, and I went shopping today. We had to use up the gift certs we got for Christmas. I used up most of mine. I don't know why, but I was craving a milkshake today, so Mom and I shared this double chocolate peanut butter thing at Steak and Shake. Pretty good. So good in fact, that I'm considering purchasing stock in the company (SNS I believe are the initials) because if I buy a shake every time I crave it, profits will go up 15%. The way I see it, I'll be breaking even and getting a milkshake for my returns.
