I've figured out how to fix any problem I have with my mood. Any time I'm in a bad mood, all I have to do is eat something really good. This past weekend, I discovered a local sandwich shop. When I worked on Sunday, I was really cranky before my lunch. I decided to go there to get my food. When I got back and ate the sandwich, all my issues drifted away. For the rest of the night, I was in such a good mood. No one could get on my bad side and nothing annoyed me. It was great. In fact, it was so great that I bought another sandwich there tonight. It made me happy tonight too. So, now that I've unlocked this secret, I'm going to get fat. hehe.
Yesterday, my sister finally got her computer from one of my friends. She got everything she needed and hooked it up. Once she got it running, all it did was freeze. That was upsetting to say the least. She finally got it going, and started converting one of her cds to mp3, when she heard a loud popping noise. This I still can't believe, but the CD exploded while it was spinning and transferring data. When I came home from work, I took a look at it. It was jammed up and wouldn't even open. After forcing it, I was able to shake out all the bits and pieces of CD that were left. Needless to say, the drive was trashed. My sister was upset too, considering she paid so much for it. I felt bad, and thankfully, I could help.
I had an extra DVD drive lying around. In fact, it was the one that I swapped out cause it wasn't working quite right for me in my computer. I put that in for her and got things running. I checked all the settings and it was working fine. In fact, the problems I had with the drive in my computer were gone. It was working better in hers than in mine. She now has a fully functional DVD drive. We even popped in the Shrek DVD just to see if it would work. It looked beautiful. And, there was no more computer freezing. I was so happy I could fix it for her, since she had such a bad day. After that, we sat and talked for an hour. It was great. We laughed and had a good time. It was a good re-bonding time. I felt like we took a great step in becoming the friends we once were again.
Now, she's sick. Tomorrow she gets an enema...I don't think she wants me saying that, but oh well. I was trying to pick up her mood all day today. Tonight, while I was at work again, I came up with a great idea. Tomorrow I'm going to buy her a replacement CD of the one that blew up. Hopefully, that'll cheer her up. We'll see. I'll write how it goes in the next couple days. Now it's time for bed. G'night.
