It's been brought to my attention that perhaps Minden Dude has a wife or a girlfriend.. perhaps explaining why he doesn't "really" want me to come up there.
It never crossed my mind that this could be the case. The weekend he spent down here, we were apart for a total of 2 hours and that was only because I wanted to take a nap rather than go with him to look at a gun he wanted to buy. His phone never rang once, though he could possibly have had it on vibrate and I wouldn't have noticed it.
He does call me, has called me without my asking. We aren't usually in contact over the weekends and it is late when he connects with me online. This is explained with, he works till 9, stops at his shop to get his laptop, making it close to about 930-945 when he is online. And I'm not home much on weekends, at least in the evenings. He has shown my picture to his biker brothers, at least thats what he says.
I don't feel in my gut like he may have a wife, in fact I'm pretty sure he doesn't have a wife. But, I suppose he could have a girlfriend, though I don't feel like he does within my gut either.. however, it's not an impossible thing and so, next time I talk to him, I am going to ask. Can't find out if I don't ask, right?
Still haven't set up my computer. The repair place called and told me that this is a common thing for HP's and that if I called them, they might replace the motherboard on my computer for next to nothing. So, I'm a bit torn on this. Do I take the new computer back or do I keep it. I'm pretty excited about it actually, it has a webcam built into it and well, I really like it. I might be able to use the HP screen to fix the boys screen on his laptop that he broke. And Minden dude said that we can use it for parts too... I have a 4th laptop, an old Dell that isn't working too... so I need to think on this for a bit.
I really want to just get back into my groove. Cleaning my house, doing my Monday Giveaways... which reminds me, the addresses for the winners of the Skoys are lost on the old computer, so if you are reading this and were one of the winners, please remail me your addresses at firstname.lastname@example.org
