Respite

As Arnie says, "I'll be back," posting more after my class reunion in March.  Until then, I'll be gathering my thought.  Missed my ten year, won't miss my 20 year.  That conveyed, please wish me luck, should be fun.

It's gettin, it's gettin, it's gettin kinda hectic

I have recently been perusing the web page for my 20 year high school class reunion.  Less than 3 mos. away.  "Whoa," as Joey Lawrence would say.  March 3, "Whoa."

I really didn't graduate with that class, I matriculated with them for ten years.

March 3.  That's really soon.  I'm kind of pumped about it.  It'll be nice seeing high school friends again.  Nineties nostalgia should be the order of the evening; that'll be awesome; good food (I did my due diligence, researched the menu, it's Italian buffet-style fare), old friends (it's been 20 years).

Snafu

As all too often is the case,  some technical issue rears its head. This latest gremlin is of the log in variety.  Before I even get the opportunity to enter my credentials, my computer goes into the hibernation/sleep mode. Its an hp all in one, and from my research via my smartphone, I have discovered that my malady is not so  unique..
Something like this happened before, and it just needed time to update. So here's hoping...

When I went to dinner, I shutdown my computer; when I returned, I rebooted, updates were installing.  I'm pretty confident that did the trick.  Seems to have helped; one last glitch, but such was the case last time it updated; fingers ctossed...

Technical difficulties (updated)

My PC is acting real glitchy again,  almost as though it needs to update.  Later today/ tomorrow,  I'll try to, in the words of Mike D, Adrock, MCA, Beastie Boys, et al. try to check,  cha,  check it out. And see whether I can ameliorate the functionality of my computer. As of right now,  I'm composing on my smartphone. Wish me luck.


Just checked, my system is up to date.  Hopefully the glitches get stitches.  Id est, here's hoping that it is less glitchy going forward. Seems to be fine, fingers crossed.  So far, so good.

Since it is still glitchy, I now access most functions from other devices (smartphone, Wi-Fi enabled TV)

Etymology

Auld Lang Syne.  Here're my thoughts on the origin of the phrase...  Auld: The scottish form or old.  It contains the 'base' of 'Au' signifying truth.  E.g. Gold, Lt. aurum.  Chemical symbol: Au. Ear drum, Auricle.  True sound?

Lang: languishing.

Syne: union, uniting.  E.g. synthesis, synchronize.

Putting it all together.  True yearning for being with true friends.  These are my thoughts on the origin of the new year's phrase.
