The home environment has cooled off.  It stays cool here until about three, then gets uncomfortably warm, then cools off around nine-thirty.

This has been a bagel day.  All bagels, all day.

What a coinkydink!  I had some frozen mini-bagel pizzas for dinner. :)

This afternoon at work, I was just sitting at my desk using my computer when my screen went black and it displayed the message, "No signal detected."  The fan on my computer was still running, but nothing was happening!  There wasn't any noise or anything...the screen just went black.  I tried hitting control-alt-delete, but that didn't work, either!  I went to my co-worker Kitty and the same thing had just happened to her.  She called one of the computer people and they said that one of the phases (?) went out.  Evidently, we have three.  Some (but not all) lights also went out, and the fire alarms were beeping, like they were in test mode, so it wasn't too loud.

Anyway, Jon (actually, one of the two Jons in Computer Services ;)) came over to Kitty's desk and asked her to power down her computer...she did, and then he asked her to turn it back on.  Nothing happened!  Jon asked me to turn off my computer and it wouldn't come back on either!  It turned out that the server totally went down and NONE of the library computers work.  I had a few things to do that didn't need a computer, but otherwise, I had to leave about an hour and a half earlier than I normally do, because I couldn't do anything.

Ever since I got home, I've been trying to get to my library's homepage and it STILL doesn't work!  I don't know if it'll all be fixed by tomorrow.  If not, it'll be another day of not being able to work. :-\

Oohh...

I just got an e-mail...

And I think I may be smelling roses sometime soon.  Well, maybe just one rose.  But a rose by any other name would be called Patti.  ;)

We shall see...

:o

:D

Good luck, Jose!!!!

I had a toy called the Time Machine in which you took these little plastic squares and put them into this plastic chamber which would heat up, causing the little plastic square to expand into a monster or prehistoric creature.  Then you could reheat the creature and put it into another chamber which, after turning the crank, would compact the creature back into a little square.

Anyways, I used to shove slices of white bread into the compacting chamber and smash them into little squares.  They would also get the Mattel logo embossed on them.  I found this results to be dramatically more impressive than just rolling slices of white bread into lumpy balls.  They looked professionally made.

I used to have one of these when we lived in Germany!  Talk about an unsafe toy for kids! ;)

I never squeezed a piece of bread in the squeezing chamber...that would've been cool. :)
