Musings from Olympus

Today I am a techno-goddess. Tomorrow I'll be a daisy.

No, seriously -- I solved a couple of problems today that a few years ago would have made me gnash my teeth in rage and dissolve in helpless tears.

The biggest one was pulling my computer apart to dismantle the CD player to remove an offending and obstructing CD. And then putting it all back together, with no remaining nuts or washers. And it worked! I know this is nothing for all you tech-heads out there who probably do this for a living, but as a right-brain thinking artist/bookworm, I feel on top of the world.

The other was pretty simple and obvious but one of those problems that we just hadn't got around to fixing, involving the DVD player and a quick read of the manual. Any other day it was be nothing, but today I ROCK!

And Bumblebee has stopped screeching every time he moves. And Best Beloved is probably moving sideways into a nicer job in his department for a while (which will improve our collective sleep no end). And I got to watch The Triplets of Belleville today while binding a particularly difficult but beautiful book on commission.

Sometimes, life is good.

The triplet rock! I bet you're still singing that song in your head though...

Constantly. And on the lookout for the soundtrack.
