Maneating Giraffe…

I turned on the computer today to browser problems… it wouldn’t leave the page that it was currently on. Eventually, I opened a different browser and it did the same thing. I managed to get it to work but I’m not sure how, mostly just by fiddling with it or else whatever was wrong was temporary and now has been fixed but I don’t like computer problems because they can be very expensive. I keep thinking that I might have my first virus in 5 years. Sugar was feeling a bit better yesterday and when we were downstairs doing a puzzle on the kitchen table she started doing one of her favorite things… posing hypothetical questions. Yesterday it was, what are Mom and I gonna get you for your birthday? I said you can just give me a hug and she said, you’re gonna get that anyway… I mean what are we going to get you like we got something for Mom for xmas. I said whatever you like and she said, I think we should get you a boy doll. I said, you think I need a boy doll? She said, well it could play games with my dolls. I said, what if I get tired of the boy doll? She said, I could probably still play with it. Then she said, oh I know, we could get you a fluffy shirt. I said, do I need a fluffy shirt? She said, yes, you can turn it inside out and the fluff will be on the inside and keep you warm. I said, do you mean a furry shirt and she said yes. Then she said, I know what we can get you… potstickers! I said, potstickers?, the food? She said no!, pot… stickers and walked over to the cupboard where she had pasted a sticker from one of her coloring books and pointed to it and said, stickers like these with pots on them. I said, oh, where do you get pot stickers? She said, well we can just cut out pot shapes from a piece of paper and tape them to the walls in your studio. This is kinda what I did yesterday and will probably do more of today. It’s currently 10 degrees. While I was at the computer yesterday morning Sofia came to me growling with this lion mask on…

I took a picture and she came back still growling with a giraffe mask so apparently any mask calls for a menacing pose…

Then of course, dad had to put on the pig mask, I think the reading glasses combined with not showing my teeth keeps it from being so frightening like that terrible giraffe was…

    Did you know giraffes have no voice?

    I’ll bet the giraffe-in-a-mask is not silent.

    Me too. computerwise. laptop here.
    desktop, i’ve been wrestling with for a week, I’ve got a clean instal of windows XP, and it’s freezing up, catatonic.
    I’m trying so hard not to kill it in a violent way.
