I spent my evening decluttering my computer desk as well as the desktop itself! I’m not the neatest person in the world, but I really hate clutter. Just did a clean sweep and it feels so good. Just a small to-do list for the week, I’m finally caught up!

I also cleared off my camera chip, so I thought I’d share a few random things from the week:

1.) Check out this awesome screensaver CD featuring “Birds of America” from what looks like the 1980s. (But maybe it’s from the 90s, it’s hard to be sure).

Irving had this disc in a box under his desk and I begged him to keep it because it’s just so awesome. People used to actually PAY for screen savers? Kids these days just don’t know what they’re missing.

But wait…there’s more… when you open up this “CD” case…

…you find out that It’s a floppy disc!!! I’m sad that my current computer doesn’t have the capabilities to look at these 20 images of “Birds of America”. I may not be able to use this disc, but it sure did provide a barrel of laughs when Irving told me he actually bought this himself. LOL NERRRD!

And that’s not all… on the left side of the CD case was a film envelope. BAHAHA remember those?!?!

2.) WHO LOVES CUPCAKES? I should probably cut back on the cupcakes… FOUR of my birthday cards this year had cupcakes on them! Everyone must know how much I LOVE them. I ❤ my friends and family!

3.) Ah-nild Pah-mah. That’s how we say “Arnold Palmer” in Boston. Irving found these drink mixes this week. Kind of cool, right? I’m excited to try them. Never seen them before!

4.) Pour, Bake, Eat. I saw this in Trader Joes this week and I HAD TO HAVE IT! Ready-To-Bake Brownies! The guy at the register told me that I could probably just eat it with a spoon too. Whaaaa??? I’m saving this for a rainy day.

Three steps, people. Pour. Bake. Eat. Done.

Guess that’s it for now.

Who else has a box of old floppy discs sitting around? I kind of want to find a drive that will open them up because I often lie in bed at night wondering about my 6th grade history papers and 7th grade poetry, don’t you? There could be good stuff on there!

  1. My dad has 2-3 24 oz cans of the “Arnold Palmer” stuff pre-mixed. The cans still remain unopened and on a random shelf in the basement somewhere! Let me know how it tastes! Even though I doubt I’ll be brave enough to ever open those cans…haha!

  3. Janie and Jake Says:

    I have en external floppy drive that might plug into a toshiba. . . let me know if you still need one by October when you are up this way…. (and now I finally figured out what ❤ is! I always thought it was a clown hat or nose thing)…

  4. PAPA Says:

    Grammie has a floppy disc, hold on !!

  5. I totally remember paying for screen savers!! I had the cutest one in college where dogs walked all over the screen and left pawprints. I spent my hard earned waitressing money on that one :). On my old floppy discs wouldnt’ be 6th and 7th grade stuff because we didn’t use a computer then..HAHAHA, I’m old 🙂
