It's Too Early for This Shit

I woke up this morning to find that the screensaver program that I'd used for years with no problems, and which I'd recently re-downloaded,  had taken over my new computer.  Uninstalling at 4:30am is not the way I wanted to start my day and my desktop is still messed up.  Blerg.

Then while doing my morning routine of checking sales and updating my spreadsheets I noticed I screwed up the formulas on my Daily Pages tab so July is all pointing to the wrong cells.  (Notice it's the 14th and I'm only noticing now because lack of sales this month. Gack.)

Both of those should've been a clue that I never should've opened Facebook.  Ugly ugly ugly shit going on out there. 

I need more coffee.  And a Valium.  Okay, no Valium since I'm allergic to it.  Vodka, perhaps?  Except I stopped drinking ages ago and there's no liquor in the house. A ball-peen hammer to the head maybe.  Only I'm not into the pain thing.  A ball-peen hammer to their heads sounds better.  Boink. Boink. Boink.

:crawls off in search of calm music and pretty things:

5:59am:  Okay, so the calm music idea ended up with me trying to rip some more of my classical CDs only to have them completely disappear from my Windows Media Player.  It said they were ripped, but no.  What the hell is up with this morning?

Update:  The desktop screw up has been fixed.  The spreadsheet formulas have, too.  I haven't figured out the music thing yet, but I'm hoping once the computer comes on again in the morning, everything will be hunky dory.  As for the world?  I don't know what could fix it, so I'm trying to keep my head down and muddle through.  Good luck out there, folks.  


  1. YIKES! *passes a massive cup of coffee spiked with Vodka* Hopefully, your Windows player will find the music and the screensaver will start playing nice. Or you find a saver you like better!

    I stay off FB but for my page and the occasional peek at pages when I get notice. I STILL can't get your page to notify me of your posts. Stupid FB.

    Here's hoping your day gets better, even though so far, your day makes me want to crawl back under the covers! Hang in there!! *big hugs*

  2. I hope your day improved, and your computer decided to behave!
