I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin

Uh… yay?

I probably should have something witty and wonderful to talk about today. Simply because it’s Friday. Friday’s bring about a certain amount of happiness. Friday means not having to get up early the next day. Friday means not having to go to be early that night.

Instead this Friday is full of stresses. <–That word doesn’t look right.  I shouldn’t be stressed. I should be excited and happy. New car… yay! New camera… yay! Contemplating a new computer… yay!

However, it’s these very things that are stressing me. I hate forking over big sums of money. It’s so final. After I do it, I immediately begin to feel the regret of doing so. I start to think of all the “better” things I could have done such as how many trips to the grocery store that could have been.

On top of this, the computer caught itself a virus. I told it not to be traipsing around late at night, but it didn’t listen to me. This morning, after running 2 virus scans last night, the virus was still holding on tight. There were 7 windows open on the computer. All were Internet Explorer. I do not ever use IE. After I finally got them all closed, I did the only thing I knew how to do. I reverted my computer back to the good ol’ days of 2005 when it was manufactured. After re-running the virus scan, all seems to be well. Everything is running well and no random Internet Explorer pop-ups.

I supposed that after this week all the holiday gift giving is completely taken care of for the rest of the year.
