It's Been Seven Days Since My Last Confession

You know how much I love doing the Saturday Scavenger Hunts. This one is no exception! Super Grrrrl Tara @ Eclectic Spaghetti sent us in a whole new DIRECTION this week! Where, oh where, would we all end up? I, for one, cannot wait to see. Now...just follow these simple DIRECTIONs...

Please to enjoy this picture of my new wireless router. Looks a bit like a little space ship, doesn't it? It came with a DIRECTION disc...which was utterly useless.

Looks so innocent lounging on the bed, doesn't it? Girlie Girl's "Laptop of Evil". That's just an affectionate nickname I developed while trying to get it to follow my DIRECTIONs. It resisted. Luckily, someone much more techy than I came to the rescue and led this evil laptop in the DIRECTION of the light. Hallelujah!

It took awhile, but my Friday finally went in the right DIRECTION :-)

On an unrelated note, check this out:

This is Handsome Lad in the wig and old lady glasses he had me buy for him at the thrift store yesterday. He kind of looks like my mom, which is a bit startling, although it shouldn't be really. What DIRECTION do you think his life will take? You can't help but wonder, can you. haha! Ah, kids are such a treat...

Alright...I think I know the DIRECTION to your place. I will make sure to stop by and see what DIRECTION you took for this Saturday Scavenger Hunt. Make sure to find out from Tara who she is going to tag for next week and let the games continue!

Routers are getting easier to set up, but they sometimes require a little DIRECTION. Also, I've heard it can be a pain to set them up on Vista.

Let's just hope it's a phase that Handsome Lad is going through. I'm sure he'll turn out just fine.

I predict that Handsome Lad will head in the DIRECTION of being an Oscar-winning actor and master of disguise. He looks like a fun character!

What a fun post. Yes, I agree with Tara... actor! Or perhaps a writer with that imagination. :)

I too have had trouble with a laptop of evil! I avoid it now at all costs. I'll stick with my trusty Hal2009!

Frankly I could easily have given Squeaky's laptop a set of directions for its hard drive and a data port!

I had to hook up a wireless router for my daughter's computer. The instructions seemed to be taking me in the wrong DIRECTION but I finally got it working through trial and error.

AlienCG: If you heard they are a pain to set up on Vista, then you heard least if you put me and Vista together in one wacky adventure.
haha! Handsome Lad has always liked to dress up, it's true. Nothing worries me nowadays.

Tara: I think you may be right. He's always been a bit of a character. He used to wear this black suit to kindergarten, like a tiny groom or undertaker :-)

Ananda: He is definitely the creative type. The dressing up and he likes drawing and painting quite a lot.
Ah, so you too have shared in the joy of the wireless laptop. I can almost imagine what your directions might entail. haha!

Texlahoma: Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who found the directions for this task not-so-helpful. If you ever want to participate in the Saturday Scavenger Hunt, please's fun.
