Spirit is Much Better

After I posted yesterday, I did a few things around the house and then read the book a bit while I sat in the recliner. I set the recliner up for sleeping at 2pm and helped Spirit in. She was back in her bed by the first time I woke up and I checked her to be sure she was breathing. I went back to bed for more sleeping. I woke up about 1:30am and thought I was awake enough to get up. I came out here and got last Tuesday's paper from the top of the pile. Spirit came up, sat on me, and immediately went to sleep, as did I. I considered putting the recliner in shape for sleeping but she was heading for her bed. I woke up back in my bed at 9am. It didn't really seem that long.

She's acting a lot like the past -- drinking, eating, using the litterbox, and sitting on me. I did read last week's Tuesday paper before I went to have lunch at Ruby Tuesday's -- I had a coupon and hadn't eaten in about 24 hours which is bad -- and was there so much earlier than usual that there were lots of cars and lots of people. They were playing songs from the late 60s and I sang and drummed very quietly.

When I got home, I went through the mail and then started on the computer. I had CDs one after another in the drive and when one that the computer doesn't know (and it's my most recent CD!) the Media Guide Ad Thing turned up. There were tons of other people on Google wanting to find out how to close it, but none of them worked for me. I finally found one of Microsoft's problem pages with persons answering and one did her job: Open the Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Click View all, and then click Windows Media Player Settings. Then you can decide how to handle it. I had it go back to default because I haven't changed it, and indeed, that nasty Media Guide went away. It took me two hours to find that because so many people want the answer and a lot of people give something that doesn't work or isn't exactly what was asked.

Citibank had a man tortured in Indonesia because of his debt and he died afterward.

Michele Bachmann was touring and when she got out of her bus, she shouted that they should sing Happy Birthday to Elvis. Unfortunately, it was his death day.

Fort Bragg has agreed to give an atheist/agnostic/etc. concert the same benefits of a Christian concert.

Another Republican voted for a ban on same-sex marriages, but set up a meeting with a young man in a hotel via Craigslist.

I know some of you know Ray Radlein from Usenet. The same way we kept track of him there because of his chronic disease, I glance at his tweets every day. Here's a good one.
