*mutter* i give up.

is there any way to change file associations in Windows, so that it will stop trying to use Mozilla to view jpegs? it's way slow.

and i'm going to get disowned by this but... anyone care to offer up recommendations for a decent book for someone who knows nothing about Windows other than "i click on this icon and i pray the program starts"? lack of knowledge is becoming more and more of an annoyance at work.

i'm tired. not really sure why, either. i slept decently well - no nightmares, which was better than expected, though i did dream. about what, i don't quite remember now, other than one where i dreamt an alternative ending for a movie we watched this weekend. we caught the second half or so of 200 Cigarettes Sunday morning, and in my dream, i dreamt that all the people who lived happily ever after and ended up with someone in the movie came to a bad end.

my subconscious is one hell of a bitch, sometimes. =]

but no, no nightmares that i remember, which i'm thankful for. i'm looking forward to getting out of here, going to work out, and then trying to make myself go to bed early tonight.

nothing quite like walking by the nuns' house next door, spitting out "fucking goddamn mother fucking cramps" ... and realizing there are people on the front porch.

i don't think i was -too- loud... i hope. =]

cooked up a big bowl of mushrooms, salad shrimp, and eggplant for dinner. mmm, good stuff. i really wasn't in the mood to eat until it was done, so i'm glad i cooked real food.

tried to finish watching Pushing Tin... couldn't. i'm not in the mood tonight to watch two testosterone units butt heads for two hours. so now i'm eating wasabi peas for dessert and kind of being at loose ends. maybe i'll go to bed early so i can get up in the morning and go swimming...

bah..

have i mentioned how fucking much the anti-smoking ads in california piss me off? the latest iteration that was just on the radio went on about "imagine your organs rotting... imagine your funeral... don't you wish you'd quit smoking?"

sheesh. smoking's a choice, just like anything else. you don't see ads advertising the damage that alcohol and even soda can do to one's innards. fucking get over it and let people live their lives. yes, i realize smoking isn't good for you. we all know that by now. are tobacco companies evil for capitalizing on human weakness? not really. they're in business to make money, just like anyone else, and if that's how they chose to do it, fine. i understand the potential damage that i take on myself when i drink, eat ice cream, or do whatever. information should be presented in an orderly manner about the pros and cons of doing something, and then left at that for people to make their decisions.

my mom smokes. i know it's not good for her. i wish she'd quit. i'm scared that we're going to lose her to lung cancer one of these days if we don't lose her to something else. but, it's her choice. and some obnoxious radio ad isn't going to change that.
