Okay, let me try this again

I wanted to write something yesterday, but I just felt crappy. This new medication that I'm on is making me sluggish as well as being bitchy. I have still been chatting, but when I tried to write an entry, I just stared at the screen. I seem better this morning.

A little giggle:
Steve says: I’d offer you fruitcake, but you probably wouldn't like me anymore
Greg says: that's right
Greg says: you can offer, but I don't think I'd accept
Steve says: fortunately, msn messenger doesn't have a button to transfer fruitcake
Greg says: well that is a plus! hehe
Greg says: The only fruitcake I like comes with a penis attached
Steve says: would your bakery be located in West Hollywood?
Greg says: LOL

Looks like I could be in for a win fall as far as the money situation goes. I got a letter from Social Security about my disability claim. Seems that I have been eligible to receive benefits since November of 2001 (last year). They are checking right now to see if I had received any benefits that might reduce the amount they would give me. Since I didn't receive any benefits, it looks like I could get a check (or in my case a direct deposit) for $8,463.00 hehe. I didn't calculate it or anything. ;-) But now that I've counted my chickens before they hatched, they will probably find some way to reduce that amount.

If in fact I do got the money, I plan to pay off all my credit cards and buy a laptop. I have wanted a laptop for so long, but couldn't afford one without putting it on one of my credit cards. I'll have to start "window shopping" for one just in case the money does arrive.

My new webcam/digital camera arrived yesterday. I'm still playing with the settings, so it will be a few days before I'm ready to expose myself to the rest of the world. The installation was really easy. I just put the CD in and no problem. The camera does really well in low light, which is great because I spend most of my online time at night without any lights turned on. The only time I turn a light on is if I have to read something that is not on the computer screen. I haven't tried to take any pictures yet. I'm still playing with the webcam part. I will probably take some pictures today to see how it works out. since it is a combo camera, it doesn't have an LCD screen to check how the pictures turned out, but that's okay. If I find that I'm using the digital camera part a lot, I will invest in a good digital camera.

Now that I have a digital camera, I will take a picture of the neighbor's pool that I keep talking about. Too bad I didn't get a picture of the hotties. Another bummer is the pool is looking like it won't take too much longer to complete. Oh well, at least you can get an idea.

Well I off to see how much trouble I can get into with my new toy.

Later dudes and dudettes!
