BlogThings for St. Patrick’s Day

You Are A Fig Tree

You are very independent and strong minded.

A hard worker when you want to be, you play hard too.

You are honest and loyal. You hate contradiction or arguments.

You love life, and you live for your friends, children, and animals.

A great sense of humor, artistic talent, and intelligence are all gifts you possess.

Your Shamrock Says You Are Alert

You have a logical mind, and you pay a lot of attention to details. You are very organized.

Sometimes you find thinking creatively to be a challenge. You prefer to deal with the facts at hand.

You don’t really consider yourself a lucky person. In your view, people create their own luck.

You are traditional, easy going, and appreciative of the simple things in life.

You Are Teal Green

You are a one of a kind, original person. There’s no one even close to being like you.

Expressive and creative, you have a knack for making the impossible possible.

While you are a bit offbeat, you don’t scare people away with your quirks.

Your warm personality nicely counteracts and strange habits you may have.

Take a Few Risks

This was in my spam filtered emails today:

If you want others to validate your talents, you may have to take a few more risks. Don’t be afraid to show off the fruits of your labor, my friend. It isn’t egotism; it’s publicity. Give it a try.

Seems true for everyday, not just April 14th. I’m going to rescue this one from the regularly spammed emails and read more of it. It comes from Bethea Jenner.

Tickle: Tests, Matchmaking and Social Networking

Laura, the best Zodiac Match for your personality is Gemini

Gemini, the Twins (May 22 to June 21): This adaptable and lively partner is just your type. Initially, a Gemini may catch your eye with an intellectual remark or their flirtatious banter. But as you get to know them, you’re more likely to be drawn to your Gemini’s creativity and ability to find the fun in any situation. People born under this sign are typically outgoing types who love to spend time with a variety of people. In fact, a Gemini’s social butterfly tendencies can make them seem flighty or even a bit erratic at times. However, Geminis are also top-notch thinkers with original ideas. In the bedroom, you’ll find the Twins to be equally creative. As a result, they can be very engaging lovers. Overall, Geminis are innovators with an uncanny ability to stay balanced in chaotic situations.

l o v e m e r m a i d . c o m: “You really don’t seem to know where you are going, but that’s okay. Time to be adventurous and seek the unknown. If you fret and keep looking over your shoulder you won’t get anywhere. Yep, time to just brave foward and see what happens. Others around you might not be as encouraging as you need, but that’s no reason why you can’t do it. “

I have been feeling adrift for awhile. I know I need to pick myself up but I can’t find enough reasons to do so. It just seems like nothing around me matters any more. Maybe it’s just due to the big let down about Christmas this year. I miss actually loving the holiday. This year I would have happily sold my tree for a few bucks. I never did unpack anything or decorate anything here. I was just so sick of it all and everything seemed so phony. Most of it still does. Maybe the new year will be a clean slate of sorts. Time will tell, it always does.

” New Celestial Computer V!rus3s Detected “

While the Hale-Bopp comet may not have any spaceships in its tail, it apparently has released several new celestial computer v!ruses into our galaxy. Initial reports indicate 12 such v!ruses have been detected. The following is a listing of the new v!ruses and their attributes:

The ARIES v!rus continuously creates new *.ini files, and repeatedly reboots your computer to initiate them.

The TAURUS v!rus automatically backs-up all files on your hard drive and prevents you from ever deleting any information or files.

The GEMINI v!rus opens any available communication software, logs on to the internet, and uses your web-browser to search for gossip about celebrities and politicians, starting a new search every 2 minutes.

The CANCER v!rus fills up your hard drive with cooking recipes, home repair tips, and old Dear Abby columns, and then installs a screen-saver that flashes 1-800 numbers for various 12-step programs across your screen.

The LEO v!rus announces its presence with a RealAudio roar (often followed by a QuickTime clip of the MGM lion if supported by your hardware) and proceeds to delete files from your hard drive to make room for the long list of computer systems it has conquered.

The VIRGO v!rus continuously eliminates any files or programs you haven’t used for a month and defrags your hard drive every time you exit a program.

The LIBRA v!rus downloads from the internet any optional features it can find for your installed software, and installs pop-ups for each new feature that describe its pros and cons and asks whether you want it installed now or later.

The SCORPIO v!rus lurks in the background, surreptitiously downloading x-rated binary files every time you surf the net (now you know the real reason web-browsers are so slow!).

The SAGITTARIUS v!rus immediately begins searching your hard drive for the one true Source code, identifying and deleting all mere object code in its path.

The CAPRICORN v!rus constructs and continually updates a database of all information on your hard drive searchable by file name, creation date, file size, author’s name (and last known address), subject, and Library of Congress classification code.

The AQUARIUS v!rus deletes all old versions of any software on your hard drive, and provides new wireless remote connection capability for obtaining the latest version of each program by FTP transfer.

The PISCES v!rus reconfigures your hard drive(s) to eliminate any artificial boundaries such as partitions, directories and files, and instead unites all software code in one universal string.
