I don't know if this is even a vent, more like i am laughing at my self. I was making some soup last night and was adding rice, clumsy me I spilled half a bag of rice right into pot. The soup is now looks and feels more like porige. Taste good though.

I've done the same with barley! Spoon could stand upright in the soup/porridge!

Well at least you don't have any broth left over that you don't know what to do with. Sometimes you really have to hunt for the good side.

Stirling tells me that the expression is, "I cannot brain; I have the dumb." Yeah, I suppose it makes better sense that way, but I have the perfect excuse for getting it wrong: I CANNOT BRAIN; I HAVE THE DUMB. Unfortunately, it hasn't gotten any better.

My new Win 8 computer wants to sign me in, to play solitaire. Hunh? It gets better. It signs me in as "CounterHarpy851". That's not me. I don't see any way to sign in as me. I suspect that someone at Staples fired up the computer when it came into the store, to make sure it works properly. And, then they played some Xbox game and signed in.

Anyone know how to sign out of Xbox games in Win 8?

I don't know, I kinda like CounterHarpy. But now that you told us, you can't use it anymore.

I would contact Staples, bet management would not be pleased.

I guess I have to talk to management. I asked when I was in the store.

p.a.g., I'd give you a hug but it's too danged hot! I feel your sweat though. Summer is my least favorite season and this summer is topping the list. Himself told me he wanted to move to FL when he retired. I told him to find someone else to wed if he couldn't give that up. My FIL tried to tell me how wonderful it would be to live in FL. He reminded me how I had to bundle up or hide "up north" in the winter. I asked him WHY would I want to live somewhere where it is summer at least 9 months of the year. I never hid inside during the winter, I hiked and skied. I told him at least I had the option of adding clothing if I was cold in the winter, but the authorities would let me take only so much off if I was hot! Stay cool however you can.
