mouseworks: A crop of an orchid shot taken with a Nikon 105 macro lens (Default)

Life has been interesting recently in petty ways. I managed to fix a cerdo/pork stew that didn't agree with me but after one rather nasty night, everything was fine. The body did what it does to fight tainted food quite well.

My IP address is blocked again at Live Journal, which probably means that they're blocking all of CA since only two machines in Managua showed up on their map (bunch more in Costa Rica). I don't know what the LJ saturation of Nicaragua is like, but Facebook is everywhere -- Jinotega has over 200 users and Jinotega is a smallish department capital of about 40,000 to 50,000 people. I'll try crossposting this from here.

A friend has a MacIntosh that's apparently failing in some undiagnosed way. She got it back up enough for now but has my external DVD burner to make copies of everything critical. If that isn't enough, I'll take a bootable USB drive up to her house and run Disk Diagnostics if her machine can boot Snow Leopard.

My Kindle and books are still in Customs. The shipping company seems to have budgeted four or five days for getting the package through Customs in Managua, which is longer than the shipping from Kentucky to Managua, but Customs does take a while.

And I've got to go up to the Mercado and see if the store with one small cast iron skillet has got the bigger skillet transferred from their other store. And I've got to do laundry, which isn't a matter of tossing things into a machine, but scrubbing things on the lavadora.
