'stlab gige realtek won't work' and the randomness

if there was ever a shadow of a doubt i married a geek...i found the above arrangement of letters in a google search box when i sat back down to my computer recently;

but then he thought that occam's razor was a spam filter, so maybe there's hope...

thanks to mamageek for my 'fewest hypothesis assumptions' lesson of the day...(oh yes, i know science. i went to princeton remember)...

my top favourite songs (in no particular order) are:

- bad case of loving you, robert palmer
- last resort, the eagles
- open arms, journey
- waiting for a girl like you, foreigner

yes, i'm a hopeless romantic
yes, i'm old

if you don't exercise for two weeks straight then run down the side of a mountain, your legs are going to hurt like H E double L the next day.

i miss amanda. she hasn't updated her blog since january 30.

213 sleeps until we leave for italy. god, i'm such a freak - i surprise myself sometimes.

3 of my children are going on camp next week, yet somehow we don't get the house to ourselves for even one night.

my husband is cooking me dinner right now. i luff him very much.

i signed up for a cupcake making class.

i can't wait to turn 50.

actually, i can't wait to PLAN the party for when i turn 50.

how many people noticed that my top 5 song list only contains 4 songs?

today's the last day of summer and it's miserable. well, wet and warm to be specific.

i love all my blog friends.

i'm going to stop talking now.

I want to come and live next door to you.

Cupcake making and husbands cooking dinner, how will NZ let me in ?

This is now becoming a serious obsession this emigrating malarkey

I miss Amanda too, even though I get to see her 3-4 days a week. I mis her blogging regularly.

How's work?

I love every song Journey ever made - actually, I love Steve Perry and bought his solo album after Journey's demise. Wonder what happened to him?

Turning 50 was painless. I sneeked by with no party, no fanfare, no spotlight. Aging gracefully without anyone knowing. But I'd LOVE to help you celebrate the big 5-0!

I LOVE your album (previous post)! I enjoy seeing your projects (actually I enjoy scraplifting your ideas). Thanks!

I hope your weekend is enjoyable, Sue :)

I think working for a living has started to affect your brain, Sue. What was that post about?!

And, yes, I miss Amanda too. Come back to blogland Amanda!

How fun. I love these kid of posts. I'm sorry about Amanda. My first bloggy peep that went awol scared me. I kept wondering how would I know if these people I get so attached to had something happen to them? (She ended up being just fine, just took a couple of months away from the computer). Maybe Amanda is doing something exciting.

I didn't notice you only had five, was too busy reliving them in my head. :-)

Wow, what a post. That was a lot of information in on post. When will you be fifty. I had a great party and loved it. All my family and friends in one spot at one time. It was fun. Who was counting the songs? Have a great week.

I want to go to London again! One of my top vacations ever.
Hope your weekend was restful and do tell more on the job!

Agree with Working Mum about the post; also with Debra about the mini album (I have one of those packs from $2 shop with the idea of using them for a mini; where did you get the round page?)
Am working Richard around to the idea of a 125th party sometime in September/Oct - when are you going to Europe? Don't want a clash of dates!
Cheers,
Margot
