    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    That's good, it shows you're really getting in to the spirit of the thread and you should be commended on your outstanding levels of irritation.
    I might start giving out "Irritatee of the week" awards. Of course they would be very itchy, awkwardly designed awards that smell weird and emit a constant buzzing noise

    I was really irritated earlier, as I got an email to say a payment was 2weeks overdue, yet I had instructed my bank to make said payment 2 weeks ago! The bank admitted it was their fault, but it was hassle I didn't need.

    I can't do really basic stuff on the computer like making sticky labels. I'm going to sit in my car at lunchtime and cry at this rate!!!65533;!!!65533;

    Nor spreadsheets. I did learn once, donkeys' years ago, but then never needed to do one, and by the time I did need to, I'd forgotten.

They did say however the 100 was for re-installation of the operating system and data recovery. And somewhere in the depths of my memory a bell rang. When I bought it, it came with a Win 7 re-installation disc.

    So this morning I picked it up (no fix, no fee ) brought it home and used the disc. And it works

    Does sitting on the couch count as exercise if you're sweating while you do it?

    That way I exercise every single night of the year for at least 4 hours

    I'm trying to maintain some health-related momentum by using my exercise bike every day, but this heat is doing me in. I'm sweating before I even get on the bike!

    Actually, experiments showed that mentally reliving some exercise you have done before, i.e. imagining it frame by frame, and reliving all the emotions you felt while doing it,etc., while sitting immobile, you do actually use up more calories than if you are just sitting still.

    Funnily enough I went back after lunch and sorted it. And I worked out how to test print a row at a time to save wasting ink and stickers. I haven't used Word or Excel or Sage for years so it's taking a bit of time for my brain to reboot!!

    You could film it.
