Post-holiday joy, and virus questions
What a fun treat — came home from John’s this evening and discovered that I was included in a special Christmas Chross list. I thought he had skipped the Spankings of the Week this week, due to the holidays. 😀 Always makes me happy to be in that illustrious list! I see, besides many of the usual great choices, two of my dearest buddies were highlighted as well — Zelle and Wolfie — for what I believe is their first time! Congratulations to all.
So, how was everyone’s Christmas? What’d you do? John and I had a lovely and peaceful time. Friday night it was just us; we went out for sushi, then came home, lit a fire and watched It’s a Wonderful Life. Saturday, we lounged and lolled around in bed until after noon. Nothing was open, so I’d brought soup and rolls to have for lunch, which we enjoyed with Christmas-y jazz playing in the background. Later that day, we went to his sister’s for dinner. It was just family this time, no big wild crowd, and it was actually quite nice, just 13 of us. We had Cornish hens and braised rabbit for dinner, with salad and vegetables and mashed potatoes. Normally I’m a bit squeamish about the idea of eating Thumper, but I have to say the rabbit was incredibly good. I even had a glass of champagne, and John made fun of me because my face was flushed and I was giggling at everything. I’m such a lightweight!
We came home around 9:00 (it was pouring rain), lit the fire again, made tea and watched a Marx Brothers movie. I’d treated myself to a boxed set of their first five flicks — love those guys! We didn’t do much in the way of presents this year, due to John’s illness… far too preoccupied for that. I’d noticed, when I cleaned his house that one time, that his vacuum cleaner was broken, so I bought him a cordless hand vacuum cleaner, the best one I could find. Not a very romantic gift, but practical, and something he’d never buy for himself. Plus chocolate, of course. He gave me a gift card from Kohl’s, so I can buy some new clothes. And today when we were at brunch, I noticed there was a small wad of cash in my wallet that hadn’t been there before. “Sweetie,” I said, “where did this money come from?”
He just looked, shrugged and said, “Guess Santa thought you were extra good this year.”
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! See? SEE? I was good, dammit! New Guy lied when he said Santa was mad at me! Hummmmmpppph. Boy, is he getting a piece of my mind tomorrow.
I have a question for the blog experts out there. One of my readers wrote to me and said she thought she might be getting viruses off my blog! She wanted to give me a heads-up, saying that whenever she came on to read, her virus protection would catch something new. Also, it was happening when she went to Pixie’s blog. I’ve also heard from her and others that people were getting viruses and various warnings when they went to the Spanking Spot.
What could this be? How does one’s blog get infected by a virus? I mean, I’ve run all my programs and come up with nothing; I have no infections. If one’s blog is transmitting a bug somehow, how does one stop it? And how do you know if it’s really happening in the first place? I mean, if my blog had a bug, wouldn’t it pass it on to everyone who comes on it? (According to my reader, it happens immediately.) And regarding Spanking Spot, I’ve gone on there many times to check on my blog votes, and haven’t caught a thing. So what could be going on? Any clues? Anyone else having a bug problem with my blog? Or is it just a coincidence, something with Blogger and not with me, a browser issue, what? Blech.
Oh well. Not going to fret over it tonight; I feel too good. 🙂 Hope everyone had a very special holiday!
