Repairing My Palm

I've been researching how to repair my Palm Vx which has been nothing but a paperweight for about a year. It doesn't hold a charge, so I suspected I needed a new battery. So I order a new battery and start looking to see how to open it up to replace it. (I just ordered it today so I have some time to figure it out.)

Dogsitting

Tomorrow we get Princess Wigglebutt, aka "Katie", the Weasel's dog. They are going on a trip out west and we get to dogsit. I think it will be good for Rosie to have some competition. It will also be good for her to socialize with an older dog who will put her in her place if she gets too obnoxious.

Katie is a very nice, very well behaved Lab mix. If you annoy her too much she has a very theatrical but totally harmless lightning-fast snarl-and-snap which I think Rosie needs to experience.

Both dogs are "only" dogs who live with cats. So it will be interesting to see how they get along with another dog...

Another Craptacular come and gone....

Another successful Craptacular. My Favorite Older Sister (who I should revere and respect as my elder, though I still question the "wisdom" of making certain younger siblings eat dirt when they were children) sez I should do this every day--just put up one or two things every day. Sort of like a daily newspaper column.

It's a fun idea, but I'm afraid I would ultimately burn out doing it every day. But maybe I will explore and see how much work it would be.

Plus, I'd need to get access to more crap, because I would run out in a short period of time. So unless people want to submit their own crap, the Craptacular would be extremely short-lived. I'll have to see how to continue it past my own stuff....

Have you seen this?

I've been researching advergaming because I'm so bored. I ran across this--they consider it a 'classic'. It IS addictive for a while--the Dyson vacuum cleaner telescope game.

I got up to level 25 without too much difficulty, but then stayed at 25 for several hours before I figured it out. One of those driving down the road "AHA!" moments. And then after it's so freakin' easy you decide you must be even stupider than you imagined for not getting it earlier.

New Family Member!

We would like to welcome Rosie into the family! She's a very sweet 8-month old Golden Retriever. She apparently has a taste for cats. Some of these pictures might not look very nice but rest assured Ratty is in seventh heaven.

Eh. Don't Bother.

I purchased the collector's 2-disc version of King Kong for the library and we watched it in preparation for seeing the new release. As my husband was putting it away he commented that he didn't remember it being as disturbing and horrific as it was. I then watched the special features where I found out a) Peter Jackson is directing the remake; b) Peter Jackson is a HUGE original King Kong fan and c) the reason why it was so disturbing is because the Hollywood production code made them take out some 4.5 minutes out of the 1933 original in 1938 and it was only restored for the DVD from a print they found in England.
