Coming to you live from our branch office four paces to the southeast and down a floor

Though we got this computer when Dad['s luggage] arrived, and we set it up the next day, this is the first time I've actually sat down to use it beyond just making sure it worked.

It seems to work just fine, although I'm afraid to get too settled in, because we're thinking a wipe & reinstall of Windows might be in order. It doesn't seem to have much on it at all, but still takes quite a while to boot up and stuff. And then there's always that Linux disc. Hmmm.

In other news, I'm trying baking soda and apple cider vinegar instead of shampoo and conditioner, respectively, and I like it very much so far.

In other other news, I DON'T LIKE BAND AIDS, yet every time I take mine off, I reopen the not-very-deep-but-somehow-deeply-vulnerable knife cut on my thumb within about 90 seconds. I'm tired of bleeding on things.

You should try superglue on the cut. I used it when I sliced my thumbnail on the grater. It was cut down pretty deep and bleeding. I reapplied the glue a couple times as the nail grew out. It would have ripped off and/or snagged me to insanity if I hadn't thought to glue it. I've never tried it on a cut, but they say it works.

I'm with Lisa on the super glue for nails that are broken below the point where they can be trimmed. I had such a broken nail, and was using bandaids less than satisfactorily when I visited her and Scott last month. The super glue was great.

For a cut itself? I had not heard about that.

If it were still a problem I might have googled it to see. Fortunately, when I bumped it this morning it didn't start bleeding again so maybe we've turned the corner.
