chromed

Waah! Had to install the big G's Chrome browser for quality checks and it ate up a chunk of what little system space I had left. I am seriously thinking about adjusting the sizes my partitions.

Hmmm... most of the mobile visitors are on iOS. Should I get one? It will be for... quality checks.

days in pictures 1


lays snack
Late-night snack.

corned beef, orange slices
Corned beef and orange slices for breakfast.

egg, giniling
Left-over lettuce wrap filling with fried egg makes a nom-nom meal. That is ground chicken meat.

floor space
Garbage truck came so it was bye-bye to the bag of trash that occupied this space, at last. You can see my transport wheelchair and rollator over there. Hmmm... my mobility aids need dusting. This reminds me, important things like these must match the person using them. A couple of years ago, I bought a rollator to use abroad, online. Like my trusty one, it was three-wheeled and lightweight but by a different maker called Drive Medical. It looked nice but I could not squeeze the brakes properly -- it was useless to me. We tried adjusting the thing but nothing worked. Such a waste but lesson learned. If I will ever need another rollator, I will stick with Invacare. I will tell the "why we chose a transport wheelchair" story on another post.

fish
Holy Week so there was fish.

pork liver
We eat dinner together at the table but sometimes I eat at my work desk. I really like how they cook pork liver.

This is the first in my "days in pictures" series. I decided to drop "dada's" because the title will be too long. The pictures came straight from the camera (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90), no flash and not edited. They turned out darker than on the camera display.

photo series

I will make a series. I will call it "Dada's Days in Pictures #" or whatever clever title I'll come up with then.

It will be a series of pictures that I will take with my point-and-shoot camera (not phone) for a consecutive number of days or until the battery is drained.

I expect it will be dull because I am not able to get up and move (sucks but have to deal {childhood-onset myositis}).

There will be food, mostly of my meals which I can comfortably take pictures of sitting down.

Let's see what happens.

it's falling apart

dada blog's rice and pork

Broke the day's fast with grilled pork and Worcestershire sauce.

My phone is old (Nokia on Symbian) and cannot handle current tech. To add to its usual display problem (which body contact in the time it takes me to sing one song resolves, so far), it is falling apart. Yesterday, the volume button fell off. It is now secured in place with a piece of masking tape.

cleaning up

We swept behind my work desk and the dust bunnies were... HUGE! Gross.
I forgot to take out the big trash bag when the garbage collector came earlier. It's full from when I cleaned out folders from college and what-nots from the cabinets. I'm purging. There are still things to go over and sort (keep, throw away or donate) but I want to get rid of this big trash bag first before I can restart my "cleanup." We can't leave it outside because it will just be messed with.

memories all repeat

For a while there, I couldn't decide if I wanted to get Third Eye Blind's first CD or the "A Collection" CD or pick out individual songs.

I re-listened to 3eb a month or so ago. Memories from college came flooding back and it was great. The band just came out at the time. A buddy handed me a tape of their first album and said, "You have to listen to this." I did and synapses in my brain rippled in a good way, it was amazing.

Thanks, man.

Anyway, I ended up choosing individual tracks because I might have outgrown most of the other songs. Bought "Wounded" and the last 3 tracks on the first album as well as "Jumper" which is just... no explanation needed. Happy days are here again.

Dipped into my darlings' gifts fund for this. Their birthdays aren't for a few months yet so I can mturk a little harder until then to bring the balance back up.
