Mostly cloudy with a chance of Simon and Garfunkel

I was going to start off writing about how sick I am of all of the clouds and the overall dreariness we have had for the last week and that made me think of the Simon & Garfunkel song “Cloudy”.

Lucky for me, it is on YouTube and, while the song is still great, the video is an ultra-weird 60’s clip from the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour featuring the floating heads of Simon and Garfunkel. Whoever put this together must have put the funny mushrooms on their pizza.

I got my new laptop for work yesterday and moved over all of the files from my previous new laptop that has been randomly freezing up for last six months. In a final smack in the face, it froze up as I was backing up my files one last time and ended up losing most of the files that I either got or touched in the previous nine days. I was tempted to throw it out the window but composed myself enough to just let it go. I gladly drove to the UPS Store to give it a proper sendoff today and I hope that it gets crushed by the tire of the UPS plane.

I’ve also eaten way too much restaurant food this week. I really need to cut back before I am too big to fit through the doorway. My desire to keep the kitchen clean seems to have overwhelmed my common sense this week.

Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday. I’m looking forward to all of the rapture jokes. Also, if the nuts are right, I won’t have to go to work Monday. It’s a win-win.

On an unrelated note, this Windows commercial where they go in and put up a “Windows store” in the home of this woman who says she has no reason to buy a PC is absolute crap. Every time you wonder if Microsoft could get more un-cool, they take it up a notch.

Here’s another great S&G classic to end this entry in the blog of excitement that is my life:
