Tired Tuesday

I am utterly exhausted today, and I don't know why. Strange how that works. I slept in about an extra half hour today, that didn't help much. I am supposed to be going to play cards with Tony and the gang tonight. That will probably be fun, but I would rather be sleeping, although usually when I get home, I am awake.

I had something really profound I wanted to write here, but I can't remember what it is anymore. I hope I remember it later.

I may not remember what I wanted to say that will change the world, but I do want to get off on a rant here. There are a great many of people that use the word 'insure' when they really mean 'ensure'. The reason I bring this up is that I saw it in someone’s journal, and it reminded me of the number of people that use the wrong word. I have gotten letters from my bank, have seen press releases from Microsoft and numerous other places where people use insure instead of ensure. The simple rule here is that something is insured by an insurance company. You ensure that something works correctly, or is correct or proper. Simple rule really. OK, I think I am done with my rant now. I just had to get that off my chest.

Boo-Boo is streaming an awful lot of classical songs to me this morning. Not that it is a bad thing, just strange.
