Princess Nagger is actually enthusiastic about school this year – because like I’ve always said, teachers make a difference. If you’ve been reading me for any length of time, you’ll have figured out by now that Princess Nagger is her own very unique individual. I know, we all are, but some days Princess Nagger is – how shall I put this? Out there. But that’s what makes her so adorably unique.
Her kindergarten and first grade teachers embraced PN’s unique personality and allowed her to just be herself. Not saying her second and third grade teachers weren’t good teachers, but I think their personality types didn’t mesh with Princess Nagger’s uniqueness, or they were more of the ‘by the book’ type teachers – you know, having everyone in their class act and be exactly alike. Which they aren’t. Case in point:
So to all you teachers out there who embrace the uniqueness of your unique students, I applaud you. Loudly and with great enthusiasm.
Speaking of loud, apparently a cooling fan in my laptop is on its way to giving up the ghost. It started making a very loud rattling noise, so I did the usual blast of canned air in the vents followed by vacuuming out any dust or hair that possibly collected. Several times to no avail. So then I went and downloaded all the new drivers and a BIOS upgrade (who knew that an outdated BIOS could cause cooling fan problems?) but that still didn’t work, so I contacted HP who requested me to ship my laptop to them for repairs since it’s still under warranty (thank goodness).
They sent me an empty box which arrived yesterday so I could ship it to them – so today I’ll be using a loaner laptop that the hubby brought home from work. Talk about feeling discombobulated. Luckily since the great computer crash of 2004 when my desktop bit the dust (and is still holding pictures and documents hostage on a hard drive I refuse to get rid of just in case I can find a way to retrieve said pictures and documents), I’ve been utilizing auxiliary drives to store all my important files. That means that once I get the software I use every day loaded on the loaner, I shouldn’t miss too big of a beat. I hope.
Speaking of missing beats, did you ever own a Furby? Between the hubby and I, we have 4 or 5 floating around here somewhere. Princess Nagger used to play with them all the time, and we would sometimes converse in Furby-speak. Now that the new Furby’s are coming out, she’s asking for one – specifically the white one:
Personally, I want to get myself the purple one:
I’m not sure how I feel about the new digital eyes, though – but I’m sure I could get used to them, since they portray more personality. I’m curious to see if the new ones will only interact with each other, or if they’ll interact with our originals, too. Might have to get a couple of these for Christmas and see. There you go, the hubby’s asking what I want for my birthday and I haven’t thought of anything – maybe I’ll have to ask for one of these. That should keep him guessing about my sanity level. Or lack thereof.
Speaking of sanity level, I’m insanely trying to get the house clean and presentable. Why? Remember way back in July when I jubilantly exclaimed that I’ve been chosen to be a Maytag Kitchen Mom? My new kitchen appliances will be arriving this Thursday. So like any normal sane person, I’m cleaning the atrocious mess of a house – you know, because I wouldn’t want to be embarrassed with the delivery guys seeing how out of control it’s gotten around here. Ahem. So next week you’ll get to read all about my awesome new kitchen:
Now if only some cupboard and counter-top people needed an Ambassador, then my kitchen would be even more wicked cool.
And with that, let’s call it a week – link up and join in the fun. I’m looking forward to catching up on your randomness this week. Thanks for being fellow rebels.
Keeping the random alive – feel free to snag a badge and play along – one for my wino friends:

More Tuesday hops – if you’re stopping by here from there, please do me a favor and follow via LinkyFollowers – since I was robbed of my GFC followers when the cads at Goggle decided to boycott non-Blogger blogs.
