Random thoughts from Guppyman

Today my brain is all over the place, so I figured I'd share a little of this with you... I am trying to design my next bench. I have looked everywhere for plans for one that uses Nutcrackers as the back, without success. So I am now looking for decent pictures of nutcrackers and I'll just design it myself. I want to build an N-scale Christmas village. Hopefully I can get it done before next Christmas. I want lights, trees, the whole deal.... Who knows if I'll actually build it, but not having any trains set up at all has started driving me crazy. I have become addicted to this stupid little game. I keep going back and forth with the idea of arguing politics. I used to have so much fun doing it, but it got boring. Some days I feel like a good argument, but once I get going, I realize that the other side is so wrong it just amazes me. Maybe I will just argue at the ballot box with my vote.... I am toying with the idea of shutting this blog down. I haven't decided yet, but I may quit on my one year anniversary in January. OK... is it wrong that I laughed uncontrollably when I saw this? Or This? Oh well.... There are a few of the thoughts running thru my head today.... there are about a million others but some things I just need to hang on to.... *Updated with a few other things.... This morning I had to sit in a major traffic jam because Rudolph decided to try to cross a major freeway in Houston. Gee... I hate friggin rubberneckers, but at least they got a show today... animal control put a shot in it's head to put it out of it's misery. My PC is fried. I reloaded less than a week ago, I have barely been on, but it is telling me once again that Windows can not load. Friggin POS!!!! I'm ready to throw it out the window....

My Husband is really chomping at the bit to do a n-scale train also, our kids are just too young right now, but that doesn't stop him from buying! Maybe I'll talk him into a christmas train, that sounds like a great idea!

Maybe the kid with the barbell should've taken a swipe at that building, eh?

No quitting allowed. Take a break, go underground for a while....but no quitting!

Ok, I'm tired and I'll bite...what's an n-scale?

Are you still not smoking? Enquiring (and lazy who haven't read everything the last few days) minds wanna know!

Yo Gup, Don't quit. Just take a little break if you need it! If you quit it would REALLY suck! I'm going to have to come back and check out those videos when I get back home tomorrow and have my DSL back. Blogging is tough on dialup!

Guppyman, you really ought to look at Linux. It's not just for geeks anymore. You could use a "LiveCD" version (which runs from the CD-ROM and a virtual disk in RAM, rather than installing anything to you hard drive) until you get your Window$ situation sorted out-- and if you like it, you could go for a hard drive install and leave Microsoft to rot in benign neglect.

The currently "hot" flavor of Linux right now appears to be Ubuntu; check it out here.

Good luck.
