<p>Morning folks!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Was in an all day meeting yesterday, brutal!!!  But it was productive.  We had an outside consultant come in, he is the top of his field.  Towards the end of the day he is talking about a paper he thinks we should read because it has good data in it.  He mentioned the lab it came out of but can't think of the first authors name.  I pipe up with the name, everyone asks how I know and I said cause I am a co-author on it!!  Was a pretty cool moment ot have work that I have done be cited by a guy who is THE GUY in this area.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif" style="width:26px;height:28px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My lovely husband arranged a date night for tomorrow so I am looking forward ot that, dinner in the city with 3 other couple, woot woot!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh and still no home computer.  Apparently the virus we have is so new that the people at McAfee have no idea how to fix it.  I think we might be better off restoring the computer than waiting for them to figure it out.  Any opinions from the computer gurus here?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ok, hope everyone has an awesome Friday and fabulous weekend plans!!</p>

<p><strong>Beaker</strong>, my home computer got a virus not too long ago.  (Or malware, or spyware, or something).  I downloaded and installed a couple programs:  <a href="http://www.malwarebytes.org/" target="_blank">MalwareBytes</a> and <a href="http://www.superantispyware.com/" target="_blank">Super Anti Spyware</a>.  They're both free, and between them they cleaned it up.  Now I run scans with each of them once a week or so, and everything has been fine. </p>

<p>What a nice surprise to come here and find a message from <strong>Biah</strong> and pics of <strong>Allie! </strong> Great way to start the day!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Missy</strong> she looks like such a wise baby!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mmm...I'm eating blueberries and they're so very tasty.  I had a Tim's cheddar cheese bagel this morning, too, and it was most excellent. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Lori</strong> that's way cool about you getting the props!  And enjoy your date night, I know how tough it is to get those!  My sister took Lena and Evelyn for us last night so we could go have supper on our own. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Evelyn is still not herself, didn't sleep great again last night.  We're supposed to go camping this weekend with Dave's parents.  I hope she starts to feel better!</p>

<p>The Paper:  too cool.  This is why <em>She Blinded Me with Science</em> is your official theme song :D</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Do you know the name of the virus?  The tools Bob cites are good ones.  Of course, in the corporate environment, if a PC gets a virus, and it can't be cleaned up in 15 minutes, we give the a new one and re-image the infected one.<br><br>

So cute.  My wife (and a few of her friends) have this theory about babies, where they are either old souls or new souls.  My DD would be an old soul - as a baby, she seamed to be content, was not distracted by shiny objects, like she knew the routine,  My first sone was the opposite, always gag over the simplest thing.  Allie looks like an old soul here - she knows the deal, she's cool with it.  I love this picture.  The eyes are awesome.</p>

<p>Litch, I <em>love</em> your theory.  I'm rather fond of you too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>and Allie!  I love Allie!!!! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/love5.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Beaks, AWESOME!!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>mmmm...blueberries.  I had some watermelon this morning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>boB, Maggie still no worse for wear?</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Tooth is refilled with no issues, exc my face was numb for about 5 hours, even without the epinephrine. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Apparently the freshman moved in Wed but I didn't run into any traffic issues or otherwise.  However, it'll be strange to work here when the kids are here.  I started around the first of May...students were already leaving campus.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This weekend, I am involved in setting up the Itinerant Poetry Librarian (<a href="http://www.tipl.info" target="_blank">http://www.tipl.info</a>), a performance artist/mobile librarian, getting her installed at the Footlight Club for a day, and also assisting her with her costume, as hers got lost somewhere between Germany and Hungary, I think. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>And tomw night is the theatre awards.  I was going to wear my black swingy halter dress from Anthropologie,but then I remembered I bought <a href="http://www.natori.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ISC_Category=NatoriousDress%20-%20Ambrosia%20Printed%20Hammered%20Silk%20Charmeuse&ISC_ParentCategory=Natorious&ISC_SubCategory=NatoriousDress" target="_blank">this dress</a> from Rue La La a while ago (click on the link to see it better):</p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/55502/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="3AMBRDREMLT__1.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13683" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13683/width/108/height/162" style="; width: 108px; height: 162px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't believe it's still available full price on the company's site...I paid less than 25% of that price.  Anyway, I feel like since I'm up for 2 costuming awards, I need to look sort of <em>fabulous</em>. Heh.</p>

<p>BABY !!!!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>She is adorable!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>so I have to get a new phone today and right now it's between a blackberry or a Samsung Acclaim</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've read a bunch of reviews and I think I'm going to go with the sales rep's recomendation ( based on ease of use and my less than stellar tech savy skills) and go with the Acclaim.  If this kid is the same as he was yesterday I'm going to write to his manager and let them know how fantastic he is.  The BB is 229 and the Accliam is 129$.  I told the guy exactly what I wanted and he picked out 6 phones for me.  He took 3 away because of ease of use issues and customer complaints, he kicked out the 4th becuase he said it was going to be discontinued in a couple of months which left me with the 2.  I asked him which he would choose and he said he HAS the BB and  his dad has the Acclaim and he would chose the Acclaim.  So I read the reviews for both and I think I've decided on the Acclaim.  BUT here's the kicker.  The guy is brining in his dad's phone and we are going to play with both of them before I chose which one I'm going to get. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm absolutley floored at the fantastic customer service I got from this guy when he could have totaly upsold me just based on his opinion. </p>

<p>Wippy, which carrier do you use?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've had great service at the main Sprint service location in Back Bay and I've told them as much.  Overall, I've had pretty good luck with the Sprint folks in general anyway, plus I rarely lose a call or have intermittent service.  And my calling plan includes free any network to any network calls, unlimited data and txts, unlimited nights and weekends and 400(??) anytime minutes, which I never use, for $60/mo.  Since my cell is my only phone, I'm pretty happy with that.</p>

<p>Litch it's an adware virus I think, any time I log on an icon for Peak Protection 2010 pops up and won't allow internet access or allow me to fully access my desktop.  The people at McAfee have been very helpful, they are trying to fix it for free.  But they have no idea at this point!  The things is, it's a new computer and we pretty much have nothing stored on it, and what is we were able to put on a flash drive.  I am just wondering if it is better to just restore the system at this point!  I did run 3 differnet programs to try and remove it and none worked so I figure if it is that new and if McAfee is clueless, I am stuck!  Thanks for the advice!!</p>

<p>Hi all - TGIF indeed, though the next several days promise to be more of the same; way too much to do and not enough time to do them (I got my fantasy football draft on Friday and haven't done any studying at all on who's out there.)</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Biah</strong>!  So good to see you pop in yesterday - so glad to hear things are going so well for you!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So cool to be recognized for your good work, <strong>Lori</strong>.  Good luck with all that virus stuff</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Maureen</strong> - nice that the tooth work went without a hitch...and it sounds like you're going to have a fab weekend in store for you</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That sounds like the way to go, <strong>Wippy</strong> - I heard one report that the BB is going to be the next Palm in terms of being swamped over by their rivals like iPhone and all the Android-based phones.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And finally...last but most definitely not least, awww, <strong>Allie</strong> is just sooo darling! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/love7.gif" style="width:32px;height:45px;" title=""></p>

<p>I have US Cellular and it's the only carrier I can get at my house.  The Accliam is an Android platform phone so I don't know if that's good or bad.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had to have the kid explain to me what an APP is.  I've heard of them but I've never seen them so today I will be seeing what they do. </p>

I LERVE that first picture and Litch's theory on is Spot. On. She does look like an old soul.  For some reason the second picture I looked at and went "Oh yeah, that's Missy's girl".  I had forgotten about the giant stretches and enormous yawns on tiny babies.  ooo I need to borrow a baby soon.<br><br>

<p><span>And I still want to go shopping with <strong>Maureen</strong>.  You find the cooolest stuff!</span></p>

<p><span>I had blueberries in my Cream of Wheat this morning along with some brown sugar.  Cream of Wheat just sounded good today.  Soothing comforting Cream of Wheat.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>Another busy weekend ahead. TODAY:  DS doc appt this afternoon, kennel the dog, then to the Running Room for direction on my volunteering gig tomorrow at the Rochester Half Marathon, then to the Greek Festival for Spanikopita and Baklava! MMMmmmm. I also need to mow the lawn and run 10 miles.  TOMORROW: Volunteer at the Rochester Half, pack and go to LaCrosse for nephew D's 5th birthday.  Sunday morning - up bright and early for a 20 mile run. That might be it for Sunday. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""> </span></p>

<p>Aw, <strong>Allie</strong> is so darn cute!!  Love, love, love the pics!  Thanks for sharing them.  Glad to hear the fog has lifted a little.  And I can totally remember that feeling that time was flying yet not moving at all.  Strange, huh?</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Beaker</strong> - THAT ROCKS!  Yay for you.  And have a great date night.</p>

<p>Dagnabbit!  The lady who cleans the lunchroom in our building tossed my lunch yesterday!  I brought it but didn't eat it because mom and I went to lunch.  I figured I'd leave it and have it today.  There's a sign on the fridge that says whatever is left at the end of the week will be tossed.  Well, thursday is not the end of the week, dammit!  And now I have no lunch and I was really looking forward to it!</p>
