a weekend of laze

my weekend was low-key, and that is a laughably overestimated statement. i mostly just laid around. i did go to my drum lesson, and driving there tweaked my back, and we moved my computer to the standing-up desk, which, to my horror i discovered didn't help much if at all. i can't use the computer at home for more than ten minutes at a time. i watched every episode of penn & teller's bullshit that i hadn't seen yet, and went through phases of annoyed and amused at that. girls night was saturday and i had fun, although i was still in a bunch of pain.

jack and i had the most fun while trying to fall asleep saturday night playing a stupid game i made up that is basically 'name a song on a soundtrack'. you have to name a song that was on a soundtrack and the movie it was on the soundtrack for. you take turns. whoever can't name one any more loses. rules: you can't name more than one song from the same movie yourself, but your opponent can name another song from a movie you have already mentioned. if your opponent wins with a movie you have already mentioned, then you actually tie. we did this for hours (would have been a whole lot shorter if we had disallowed musicals) and he won with 'eye of the tiger' from rocky because i couldn't think of the name of that movie that used the 'hotstepper' song. which, by the way, i now recall was pret-a-porter. try it with your loved ones. adjust the rules as you see fit.

sunday jack made chili and we played final fantasy (IX, on the PS2 so i could be supine). i discovered that i cannot open 'Memos' on my treo 700p because it resets every time i try. any palm advice is welcome, since that's where i keep all my directions and not being able to use it would waste paper.

not being able to compute at home has me sort of paralyzed in my personal life. sick, isn't it! i can't figure out what the hell i am doing. and i am discouraged every time i look around the house, because i can't clean anything. i know, i am a whiner lately. yeah.

You are the third person I know (well, Jack is...) who made chili on Sunday.

you need to do a hard reset. if you can't look up how to do it on the internets, call you cell service provider's tech support. they were immensely helpful when it was my turn ...

I got nothin' except Hi! and Hope things look up in pain relief world! Ok wait, actually, my social life is pretty dependent on the computer and I would lose it if I couldn't be online for hours at a time. *g*

Saw a medical report on TV yesterday that said that the number 1 cause of lower back pain in younger women is heavy and large handbags. Try going for a week like the average guy. Wallet in hip pocket, keys stripped down to a minimum, makeup and like stuff left in car or in desk. (Create piles of the stuff in different locations) That way there is no need to cart it around. Phone on your belt. Do this for two weeks and see if it doesn't help.

i really stripped down - the heaviest thing about my bag right now is the bag itself. ask mom if she thinks i should suffer to carry my coach bag. ;)

no, but maybe i will try it a week without.

Final Fantasy IX? If you haven't done so already, you can go into the PS2 menu when there's no disk in and set the rendering performance higher. Smooths everything right the eff out. I liked that one, although the character design was a little disorienting. Don't let the last 10 hours discourage you, I know it gets kinda out there, but you will be happy with the result-- Plow on through. (Quasi-Spoiler: Unlike most other FF games, there will be no outright weeping.)

We will have to check that out. Because the characters are often really hard to see. I have already been weepy about the plight of our poor black mage.
