I noticed a mobile display weird and took screencaps and then realized it was a locked post. I am too lazy to ask permission to share the caps, or to edit out that portion which is not my text. Thus, I make a new post where I can reproduce the weird and cap to my heart's content and then bug Support.

Is probably known weird, but in case it is not.

..dear past!Alex: what was your reasoning for buying identical sets of melting/pouring pots for candlemaking and soapmaking and not labeling them? I'm very interested.

(I suspect the set with the candle thermometer in is the candlemaking set. But I can't prove it.)

(I will go to bed hours earlier than usual, I promise.)

hi I wish to complain that I am hungry but I cannot eat because I want to get the bloodwork my primary care doctor ordered over with first thing in the morning and one of the things requires a twelve-hour fast. :(

but hey! except for my bedroom and bathroom (and sofa and coffee table, on which I piled a lot of things I didn't feel like finding homes for right at that minute; this is also a big part of why the bedroom's still a mess; also my desk needs dealt with), my apartment is CLEAN! And vacuumed!

I decided today's todos include "figure out why my Android phone and my Kindle Fire only hook up to my Windows 10 desktop—either old or new—as cameras, not as media devices; fix that; change the media selection on each device".

image )

Windows 10's Device Manager. This screenshot is from trying to get the desktop and the Fire to cooperate when the Fire is set to media device, specifically when telling Windows to search the Internet for updated driver software, but the phone gives me the same error verbatim:

Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device

Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.

MTP Device

A service installation section in this INF is invalid.


Fuck does that even mean?

I did look at this HowToGeek article, but those instructions stall out at the bit where I pick "Android Something" from a list of devices, which is why I backtracked to making Windows search the Net. Also unhelpful: answers.microsoft.com.

ETA: Figured out the magic trick. Thank you, [personal profile] vass!

I should NOT fucking need to enable developer options in order to connect either of my fucking devices to my fucking desktop.

tadaaa!

WANNA HEAR SOMETHING HILARIOUS

the two corkboards

that have been leaning against the wall for ages for lack of hardware to put them on the wall

come with their own hardware and instructions

wanna hear something else hilarious

the instructions for the corkboard hanging hardware

involve drills

I do not have drills and I am not sure I would be allowed to drill holes in my apartment walls

(of course, to find this out I had to open one of the corkboard packages, and the receipt is long since discarded, so the other one isn't returnable)

(yup, and the whiteboard's the same brand, same "hardware" marker on the insert, probably same deal)

according to middle sister and walmart.com, I require command strips, medium size. okay then.

tada!

I think the best way to get my bedroom vacuumed and my cinderblocks in and my shelves set up on the cinderblocks and my side table set up by my bed is to evict all the stuff on the bedroom floor (bar furniture) to the living room long enough to vacuum, bring in the cinderblocks, bring in and assemble and place the shelves, vacuum again because cinderblocks suck, bring in and assemble and place the side table, and then put stuff back in the bedroom, getting as much as possible on the shelves.

I need to inventory my foodstuffs. And assorted other stuffs. I am finding lots more of some things (cans of fruit and cans of kidney beans, for example) than I thought I had, and I know I have done the thing where "Oh, I have plenty of that, no need to buy more" and then found out I didn't have any at all.

I am Setting A Goal: vacuum the whole apartment during February. (By which I also mean scrub the kitchen and bathroom floors; those are postage-stamp-sized tiled areas, so vacuuming won't work.) Not necessarily all at once, but the whole place needs to be free of clutter-on-carpet in order for this to happen. This is in fact a specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound goal.

Silly question

It occurred to me I need, during the doll prep process, to apply spiritual/energetic/magical cleansing techniques. Lustral water is safe for doll, I'm sure, or at any rate plain water didn't do damage before. Obviously sound cleansing will do no harm either. The silly question is, do I need to worry about the smell of smoke from a candle or an incense? I know cigarette smoke can stick to dolls, but I'm not sure how much smoke exposure is necessary for that to be a concern.


I'm planning "work on doll" as my bribe for completing at least three, sometime this weekend, of:

✓ fold and away all the laundry, including that washed and dried this weekend
✓ visible progress on living room chaos
* visible progress on bedroom chaos
* clean bathroom
* clean kitchen
* at least 500 words written on any one of Val Brown, a memoir, or a Hellenion project

I'ma try planning my day today since I didn't do that yesterday and it worked out kinda poorly. I mean, twelve hours of sleep was nice, and I did accomplish things that weren't all "sit at my computer trying to process Orlando and check in with other people who are trying to process Orlando". But.

...what do I even want to do today.

I need to make the glutened batch of meatballs before the other 2lb of ground beef starts going bad, and I meant to do that yesterday but didn't, so let's do that today. Which means washing pots first.

Prayer and contemplation. Exercise. Reading a book. Working on a craft project—probably metal-stampy or prayer beads, but I really should work on my oldest sister's bridal shower gift until it's finished and then start on her and her husband's wedding gift (they've only been married ten months), and I need to fix those earrings again. Cleaning. Decorating. Writing.

Maybe not all today, though.

Dammit. I just noticed my vase of daisies is all wilty, and the water all brown again. What even. Why is the water brown. I suppose I am emptying that out today, too.

ETA, noon-fifteen: Everything is too much work. Going to the park for a walk. Starting the meatballs. Reading a book. Writing a book, even in a small part. Staying off Facebook. Going on Facebook!

I did get the pots washed and the daisies discarded, but nothing else on my list.
