at a loose end...

Okay, that's the second time this week that I've lost a post... only this time it was due to my own fault (although why making hidden folders appear should make all the browser windows refresh is beyond me)... Grrrr...

Anyway... as the post title suggest, I'm at something of a loose end today... and it's been a very weird day... not that anything has actually happened, far from it... it's just felt weird...

Ma has a couple of weeks off, both the week just gone and this coming week, and she's actually been away with her bestest gal-pal for the past week... doing something or other... she did tell me, but I wasn't paying that much attention... but it does mean not only that I haven't spoken to her at all for the past week, which is weird all on it's own, but that we, obviously, aren't doing Random Shopping Adventures today...

It also meant that I didn't have to up and dressed and ready to go super early this morning, so I kind of got to have a leisurely day... I played around online for a while this morning, then wandered off to do a little shopping... and for whatever reason the shopping felt weird... but I suppose that was because it was just "not the usual"... different shops, different means of getting there (walking instead of driving), different amount of purchases...

And since then I've been pretty much at a loose end... I watched the commentary on Shrek 2... had some brunch/lunch... read the paper... then came to play on the computer for a bit... went looking for something in my image archives to kind of match up with the theme of this post... blogged the same thing twice thanks to the unscheduled refresh... waited for my virus checker to finally finish after what seemed like at least four hours worth of checking (no exaggeration). I mean I know it has to check both hard drives and all my folders and images... but c'mon...

I just had a slightly Larry inspired thought... I think I'm going to try loading The Sims onto the external hard drive... since I now have all that room to play with... maybe play around with that for a while...

Yay for Windows! ... but seriously, it does that because MS very thoughtfully built IE into every facet of Windoze, meaning it uses the same engine to render it's file manager (a.k.a Explorer) windows as it does your web page -- change the way one vies and it has to refresh everyhing.

Unexpected, and a pain in the arse, but not overly surprising.
