Success – it smells like sauvignon blanc

Stupid news link of the day:  When in doubt, bail ’em all out

Today’s word count:  674

Current project:  Home budget piece, sauces in less than ten minutes for less than three dollars

Current song on my playlist:  Chumbawumba – Tubthumpin

Success!  I had my first freelance sales for the month – three in one day, all on healthcare.  This is… pretty typical, actually.  Freelancing always seems to be feast or famine.  Explains why I’m in the hobby biz, eh wot?  Nice little bonus to my bank balance and ego though.  I bought a bottle of wine to celebrate, and that new bikini I’ve been coveting.  (Sporty white bikini with these little glittery brown and blue sparkle-thingies.  Makes my ass look awesome.)

It has been absolutely gorgeous the last few days.  Mr X asked if I planned to start working on my tan.  Aha, it is to laugh.  I, tan?  I’ve got the redhead’s complexion; that pale, pearlescent skin with more or less of freckles.  I’m so white I glow in the dark.  I joke that I use Kabuki makeup for foundation.  I get a sunburn on the way to the grocery store.  Further, I can’t tan.  I’ve tried, way back when I was in high school and every sixteen year old girl would oil up and lay out on the lawn on a towel.  I’ll get more freckles, but that’s about it.  I long ago gave up on getting that nice even tan look, so I just slather on the sunblock and wear hats everywhere so I don’t get sunburnt.

Does anyone know how I find out which driver and video card I’m using, so I can upgrade them?  I know there’s ways to update from the web, but I am so clueless with computers.
