I try soooooo hard!

Today, I spent all day working on a post (sssh! at work!) about Feng Shui since someone was interested after my mentioning it in passing and another made a comment.  It made me think that you guys might be interested in hearing about it, at least a little bit ('cause really?  It is interesting.  And, the added bonus?  If you have a Hubby like mine - it is fun to drive him crazy with the feng shui talk....okay, maybe that's just me!).

This was the first time I've "worked" at a post.  Usually, I have a topic in mind.  I sit down; bang it out and am done. [Yes, my friends - that is how this particular "genius" rolls....  ;-)  which may explain the total randomness.....] 

No, today I did "research."  I re-read my notes, looked stuff up on the internet, had diagrams, pictures, the whole nine yards.  I did all this for YOU!  And then I emailed it to myself (at my home email)  (so I could post from home; 'cause you know I work for big brother and they don't pay me to blog....although technically, I guess they did today....BUT they shouldn't be able to track it....).  And what happened??

I can't open the attachment.  Seriously?!  I have tried everything under the sun.  It will not open except as a garbled mess.  And the thing is - the Word I have at home is newer than the Word I have at work; so theoretically it should work!  Arrrrggghhh!

So you will just have to wait (and pray I don't forget - cause we all know that my memory isn't the best....and Monday is a looooong way away!)

In the meantime, it seems that I have acquired two new readers - so let's call them out for attention.  First up we have Heather who hails from Finland (apparently, I really appeal to those from other countries.  But that's okay - that gives me a reason to visit said countries!) and Cinderella (who is actually from America, it seems.  Surprise!  See?!  Some Americans seem to like me!).  I'm so glad that you two have taken the leap and decided to join me - as I've told others - it's random - you'll get used to it - maybe (although actually, truth be told even after all these years of living with me, I'm not used to my randomness yet!  Yeah, so good luck with that!)  But thanks for joining me on this journey!

  4. you should try saving your document as an .rtf file. rtf = rich text format which loosely translates you being able to open it in programs other than word which means that any word program should be able to handle your document. just, you know, for your information. :) i rarely know much about computers, so don't expect much more because i'm reaching my limit hahahaha.

    and i like random. random is good. :)

Unfortunately, for some reason people with Yahoo emails are receiving bounce-backs. Your comment will be published but I won't be notified; but I will respond once I realize you've left a comment.
