annoying stuff

I logged into livejournal through semagic today, both at home and at work, and now I can't open that program. I wonder what's up with that. I am using the standard livejournal app now.

Last night I made cranberry bread in my breadmaker. I have had bad experiences with quick breads but thought I'd give it another try, using a recipe from the breadmaker cookbook. It sucked. It wasn't even close to done when the timer was finished, and when I finally figured out how to make it bake longer it baked to a heavy mass. I threw it out this morning. I think it overmixes and underbakes, and there is no fix to this that I can see. These machines are not sophisticated. I'll stick with yeast breads. It does those rather well.

My throat is still sore and my ears feel a bit off, my head feels a bit stuffed. I thought of swimming today but think I won't. I'll just relax. My shoulders ache a bit, too. Cold symptoms.

I think I should go home when I leave here and go to bed. Drink hot tea.

I just came from Starbucks, where I ordered a decaf and a muffin. She was just making the decaf so she brought it to me when it was done. As I was driving home I swallowed the rest of the cup and almost gagged on a bunch of coffee grounds. Damn some people are careful.

25 pounds later

I stopped at the bird store and bought 25 pounds of bird seed. Twenty deluxe blend and five thistle seed. I filled my usual four with the deluxe and the finch feeder with the thistle seed. Now to wait. See if I get some goldfinches, along with the rest. I am tempted by feeders that stick to the window...

Too much weirdness. My computer started locking up and the semagic program didn't open and I could not find my way out of it so I uninstalled semagic. I trust this will solve the problem. I can try installing it later when there is a newer version.
