Day 758

I'm a Southerner. Anything below freezing is very uncomfortable to me. When I walked Dot and Dash this morning, I discovered that it was not only below freezing; it was freezing with a thirty mile per hour wind! It was almost too much. On days like these, I really wish I could train the dogs to use the toilet. We all wore our warmest coats, but I don't think it helped all that much.

Luckily, it warmed up a bit later in the day, because I still had plenty to do. I managed to get all my invoices posted and in the mail this afternoon. I also got my car safety inspected. On the way home from the garage, I noticed that the mechanic had put the safety inspection sticker on my windshield upside down. With my anal retentive tendencies, that little faux pas is going to bother me for the rest of the year. Every time I get in the car, I'm going to fixate on that stupid upside down sticker. Then, the next year, I'm going to tell another mechanic to be sure to put the 2014 sticker on right side up and he's going to think I'm an idiot.

With so many odds and ends to distract me, I didn't get much work done. One of the things I was asked to do today was remove an employee from a group photo on one of the websites I manage. I looked at the questionable photo in Photoshop and discovered that the no longer employed guy in the third row had a head that was only four pixels wide. This photo was so small that I couldn't tell who anyone was. I'm positive that nobody could recognize the faces in the tiny low resolution image. There must be a back story on this one. These folks apparently didn't even like the idea of this guy being in their photo anymore.

The HVAC guys are coming over tomorrow morning to take a look at my erratic furnace. It works some of the time and then refuses to light at other times. I'm almost certain that the furnace will decide to work perfectly tomorrow when the repair guys are here. I'm plagued with intermittent problems at home and in my car. Whenever I get someone to come look at the problem, it goes away and makes me look foolish. I hope the furnace gets fixed though. It's supposed to be really cold this weekend.

I got another call about being a guest presenter on Shop NBC this morning. They want me to sell watches on TV. I don't know what these guys are thinking. I'll admit that I do like watches, but I'm definitely no Joan Rivers. I'll keep you guys posted on what happens.
