The opening bars of this song have been blasting through my head for days now. 1978. Sweet – Love Is Like Oxygen.
It is a nice pleasant song that makes me feel good still, but it was probably the worst time of my life mentally. It took a long time for that state to begin to let up. Managing it was one big tricky thing.
After getting blocked by a couple on Twitter, here’s a sorta funny I-got-blocked story. There used to be a nice community called My Opera, run by the Opera software company when it was still headquartered in Norway. It was my favorite social media site, and there has never been another one for me that was as good.
There was another user who I enjoyed and thought I was having fun hanging out with until I criticized the Windows operating system one day. He posted about so many things he downloaded to improve Windows: registry cleaners, virus scanners, scanners and improvers of other types, I don’t know.
I couldn’t resist, so I posted the comment, “my God, how many crutches does it take to make that thing walk?” lol. 🩺⛑️
To be fair, it’s when most people were running Windows Me, Millennium Edition. I think that one needed a lot of help.
Windows is used where I work, and after XP, things seemed quite good.
I found some old sunglasses in a drawer tonight. I realized they were the same ones I wore to Pride in Carrboro in 1991 (30 years ago). I probably bought them about 1986, so maybe they are 35 years old. They are now back in service.
