It is April 1st 2014 and I am sitting here waiting for my wife to get home from the store. I have a little surprise for her. We have a fake spider that constantly floats around our house. Not literally floating, although that would be cool, but it just seems to end up different places. Mostly places that Cindy isn’t expecting. It never gets old to be in another room and hear her scream when she finds where it is hiding at that particular moment. Today I have tied it to a string and hung it in the refrigerator. After she gets home from the store I expect that she will put away some groceries and discover the spider yet again. I am not sure if it will surprise her or not as she has come to expect it recently but my hopes are high.
April 1st has become an interesting day. It is a day where the internet becomes much less useful than it normally is because everyone wants to be a comedian. For example, I have seen today that Norman Reddus has been fired from The Walking Dead. For a second I was like “NOOOOOOOOooooooooo!!!!!!!” and then it hit me that today is not the day for believing anything on the internet. I guess this new tradition is fun for some and I get a kick out of some of the “jokes” but the overwhelming amount of fake information is kind of tedious.
I got a new Windows 8.1 PC back before Christmas. I have been overall pretty happy with it. I certainly don’t have a problem with the Metro interface. It is kind of unnecessary but I get what they are going for with it. Maybe if I had a touchscreen I would have a different opinion but for now I basically work from the desktop. I have, however, customized the Metro start screen to make it usable. Underneath all the interface stuff though the system seems rock solid stable. Hope it stays that way.
Trying to get back to posting daily so check back tomorrow for whatever.
(side note, the spider gambit failed. I will have to get more creative)
