caesar great, great

Life is Good. It's Just Very Busy! (New Cell Phone!)

I get my new cell phone tomorrow! Yipee! I can't wait. I went to a nearby Verizon store (over by sister Sue's house) to order it. The manager had no problem pulling up my plan (even though it's via work) and letting me know I was good to go.

Oh. It's an LG, by the way...

Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I updated to AVG 7.5 (the Professional version) recently. I installed it on both our computers yesterday. And I helped Sue install it on both her computer and Candy's computer today.

We're watching the Australian Open (tennis) right now. Nadal against Gonzalez. Rafa is down a set and a break (in the second). Damn it! He needs to get his act together right now...

I'm burning some music CDs. Our habit now is to never carry around the original of a CD. And I frankly don't give a damn if the music people like it or not! We've spent so much money buying the same CD over and over and over again, simply because they don't hold up to the wear and tear of being played! I mean, we handle them pretty carefully, so it's not about that...

Anyway, the music companies are getting lots of $$$ from Marilyn and me -- we buy tons of CDs a year. And we have stacks of them everywhere. In the house, in the car, at work. Yikes. We can't even keep track of all of them... But we both love music, so...

I see the liver specialist on Friday. Finally. I am so not looking forward to that appointment... (sigh)

Hector's (finally) coming tomorrow to take away our air conditioners (seeing as we don't need them now). He's also taking the old computer that we had attached to our home network. We didn't ever use it, and it was taking up a lot of space, so we're giving it to Sandy for one of the kids to use...

It's old, but works fine. And it has Word installed still, so her kid can use it for homework. She wants to set up a home network, too -- then he could also use it to go on line!

I'm glad to give these things to people who can use them. The air conditioners both work well and are new models with remote controls. Anyway, I'm also glad they'll be out of our way after tomorrow!

Time to go watch the tennis -- and snack on cheese and pickles... (grin)

tennis anyone?

Rafa Lost.

Fernando Gonzalez deserved that win, though. He played absolutely amazing tennis! He's transformed himself and is so fit. And just hitting like nobody's business...

And frankly -- Nadal didn't play that well.

I wanted to smack him every time he tried to slide on the sticky rubber surface. (Smart, Rafa. Smart.) He probably re-injured his groin (at least he had to have it taped up).

And I wanted to smack him every time he ran around his backhand, too. What was that about??? In fact, he lost the match running around his backhand!

Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I are both sad to see him go out, though. We love Rafa! But he certainly didn't deserve to win... (I'll skip quoting Rafa's whining about the match, I think. I am not impressed...)


Anyway, it's going to be interesting to see how Gonzalez does next round against Tommy Haas!

Also, Kim Clijsters played a great match against Martina Hingis.

All in all, there have been some great matches during this tournament so far!
