Base Paper, Google Book, Thievery, and Bad Computer

Quote of the Day: “Never attribute to malice that which can be ascribed to sheer stupidity.”


We made the base paper.

Although they didn’t name us, you can see that I’m in the blue, Carrie (118) is to my right, Stephanie is in front of me, and Alex is beside Carrie. You can also see my friend LtCol Chad Sbragia (288) and one of his three sons, Jake (289) to the right. This was right at the start and I have absolutely no recollection of this picture being taken.

In other news, some bastard son-of-a-bitch stole one of our wire snowmen that we had on our porch. The weird thing is that there were two of them and they only took one. If I were to catch the thieving bastard, I’d show him some Christmas spirit by sticking my Christmas stocking clear up his chimney. (For those of you that aren’t schooled in the art of euphemism, I’d kick the shit out of him.)

What else… I got another book I ordered in the mail today. It’s The Google Story and since I’m currently reading three books, I will have to wait on it. But it’s killing me and what’s more, another one is on the way about the Linux operating system. I decided to put it on my laptop just to see how it works.

Update on the kids computer: Steph’s is working but Alex’s refuses to connect to the internet although he’s getting a full signal. I have no idea why this is or how I’m going to fix it. I checked the settings and everything seems normal. They even switched the receivers (I use USB antennas instead of a wireless card) but to no avail.

Alex is not happy about this situation and blames Steph’s computer. He can’t explain it but he knows she’s to blame. Ahhh, brothers and sisters.
