Little Miss F**k-Up Update

First off, I'd like to thank all you guys who sent me money -- you all rock! The Keep Andrea's A/C On project is underway. (I have until midnight tomorrow to pay up, so hopefully the Paypal-to-slowass-bank transactions will have been completed by that time. If not... well, there may be light posting here for a day or two.) Also, I have finally got around to opening an Ebay account, and will get around to opening a seller's account, so I can sell some of my detritus. (Like those two Thomspon Twins albums I bought and played exactly once.)

By the way, either I have a fever, got overheated from spending exactly five minutes out in the heat -- the time it took to go from air-conditioned car to air-conditioned house and so on -- or I am suffering through my first hot flash. Not pleasant. I am thinking of filling the tub up with ice cubes and climbing in.

I will also be working full-time for a couple of weeks while the boss is away on a trip. That's more money for me, though possibly less posty goodness for you, at least during the day. (It quiets down after five, and I work until 8pm.)

I have also scrounged up my old Photoshop install files, and found where I had put the registration number, so I am once more Photoshop-empowered. Stay tuned for site changes and other ephemera.

PS: forgot to add -- I have been listening to techno music lately on the Winamp radio and I think I know why this "dance" genre is so popular among geekheads. It's not because it's dance music -- it's because the rhythm is great to type to. I swear my words-per-minute count has gone up in the past couple of days.

I think your right about the dance music typing thing.

It has to be true -- I am even touch-typing after umpteen years of not being able to do it.

"Hold Me Now" is one of the greatest pop songs of all time. That said, I won't be buying your albums...

Are you suuuure you don't want your very own vinyl copy? Complete with cat-scratched album cover? (Bet I get fifty cents for it.)

One Thompson Twins album I can understand. But two?

It was the 80s. They were on sale. Um... they were stuck together in the rack. Oh -- I don't know, I think there was one song on the other album I liked or something.

The Thompson Twins don’t sound so great now, but compared to the 70s singers (Bee Gees, John Denver), they were just fine.

I can't remember what I liked better about the Thompson Twins: the fact that they weren't named Thompson, or the fact that there were three of them.
