Nothing to Talk About

So why am I posting, right? =) I know, I know. I just feel like I need to blog. Nothing really is going on...I just feel the need to write something. Even if it's not really something of any substance. Which is apparently happening a lot lately. So few comments these days... Where are you guys? *pouts* There are 191 of you... But how many of you actually read my silly little 'ole blog?

First up... My bestie finds out the gender of her little baby tomorrow!!! =D She's taking a poll on her blog, to see if her readers (or, well, anyone else...;-) think it's a boy or a girl. I voted "boy" for reasons I won't post on here because I don't want to influence anyone else's vote. =) So, if you don't mind, head over to her blog and vote. She's also having a gender party tomorrow night. It's also been referred to as an "it's a..." party. Isn't that cute? They're having the U/S tech mark the gender on a card she made (posted on her blog), so even her and her hubby won't find out until the party!! Then, she's having her family vote on what they think it is before the big reveal. Isn't that just the cutest idea?! If I lived near my family, I'd probably do one of these when I get pregnant. Since Joe is in the Army and we live in the middle of an ocean in Hawaii, that's not really feasible.

One of my lovely BB's, JG, is having a giveaway. Her Scentsy sponsor has asked that she have at least 30 people enter. Sadly, 30 people have not entered yet! *gasp* How can this be?! I don't know about you, but I could always use some Scentsy in my house. =) Please, please, please head over there and enter!!

Tonight, some of the ladies from the FRG (including *ahem* the CC's wife...) were supposed to get together and make some care packages to send to the guys. We were supposed to be at one of the wive's house at 6:30. I followed two other wives there, and we got there maybe a few minutes after 6:30. We waited. And waited. And waited. Mrs. CC never showed. *sigh* Really? Ok, I understand that she works at the Army hospital. I understand that she's busy. I understand that she had a meeting. Here are my issues... 1) She could have called an hour before and said, "I'm sorry. I got shoved into this meeting and I just really can't make it. Can we reschedule?" {Note: It wasn't my house, so she wouldn't have called me...} 2) Where I'm from, you don't tell someone you'll be there at a certain time and just not show up. And you certainly don't say, "I might be there around 8:00" and then call later to say "Nope, sorry, can't make it." 3) She's the freakin' CC's wife. Isn't there some sort of responsibility that comes with that?! Though, I'm sure she doesn't realize this... She's only been the CC's wife for...4 months. It's possible that I know more about the Army than she does. Possible. This is all conjecture, of course. Bright side of the evening: I got to hang out with some really cool ladies for a while. =)

I think something is wrong with my compy (aka laptop). Twice this morning, it froze and a "You need to shut down your computer" memo window popped up. Both times I was Skyping...once with my hubby. That was not cool and made me very upset. It's not like I have all day to talk to him. Grr. *angry face* My precious MacBook has been in my possession for 3 years now. I think the life of my laptop may be coming to an end. This makes me sad. My Mac has seen me through my last year of college, countless job applications and resumes, helped me enter the world of blogging and has allowed me to keep up with people - literally - around the world. Tomorrow, Mrs. C has offered to go with me to the Apple Store downtown. I don't really want to go downtown by myself. =S It scares me. Lots and lots of people... and the crime rate here is so ridiculous that I don't even want to risk it for 10 minutes. I hope the Geniuses can fix my computer without it costing me an arm and a leg. (Yeah, PC people have Geek Squad. Mac people have Geniuses. I don't know about you, but I'd pick a Genius over a Geek any day. =D) I'm half tempted to tell the hubby that it couldn't be repaired and lay down the dough for a brand spankin' new iMac. =) Hehe. Tempted. 

Well, I suppose that's all the "nothing" I've got to talk about for tonight. 

Happy Hump Day! {Hey, it's still Wednesday here! =P}

hehe I love that they call them geniuses. I have a PC, but I think I would take a genius over a geek too :) I've heard wonderful things about macbooks though! I had the ibook in college, and while it was super cute...I think the macbooks have come a long way since then.

I'm here! I'm here! : ) It seems that lots of people are taking the summer off from commenting.

Also, we have a MacBook Pro and we L.O.V.E. it. It will be a sad day when we find something wrong with it.

JG said...

I'd make some joke about how Macs are never supposed to break, but that would be insensitive. :) Seriously, nothing is stressful like computer problems. I'm sorry.

And go ahead and give yourself another entry for the shoutouts. :) We hit 30! (Actually, last night we hit 40! I'm so excited!)

I know what you mean about few comments. I guess it's all the back-to-school/back-to-work lethargy. I was about to do a "call out" blog. :)

I love those reveal parties. :) But I don't think I could wait to find out myself. I want to know...and we'll have a party to reveal it to everyone ELSE! (BTW, it's the year of girls...just sayin'.)

I'd choose a Genius over a Geek any day. Hope your trip downtown goes well and they can fix your computer.

Chantal said...

It's not too scary downtown! I've never felt unsafe.

BTW, they should still be getting hazard pay.

I'm reading... I am just a horrible commenter. Matter of fact - I left your blog open so I could come back and comment on it last night. When I opened up my browser this morning is opened it back up. I guess firefox knew I forgot to comment :-)

I'd say take it to the apple store for sure because macbook's are beast and shouldn't be acting that way after only a few years. I've had mine since 2007 and it's still good.

Hope you can get it fixed.

Just want you to know I still love you! I opened my google reader today to 469 unread blogs, so that is my excuse for not commenting...I'm still reading, just not finding any time to comment!

Before I know it, I will be the CC's wife and I'm learning a lot about what NOT to do from reading your blog (told ya I'm reading!)

Keep your head up, the deployment will be over before you know it!
