Dad’s birthday present

My birthday is on Tuesday — I’ll be 25, a whole quarter-century — and Mom and Dad have been asking me what I wanted for it. A hard question to answer because I didn’t particularly want anything. Nothing they could give me, that is. They provide considerable support as is, and I’m not really a material person and don’t have a lot of space for the stuff I have already. Usually I get books, which is fine, but mostly I prefer to use the library rather than keep them at home. (I rarely buy a book anymore that I haven’t already read a library copy of. If I read the library copy and fall in love with it, then I put it on my wishlist.)

Anyway, Dad says that for my birthday he will buy me a five-year contract with my web host for Charley. Right now I’m paying by the month, which costs twice as much in the long run. So now I won’t have to worry about the hosting thing for five whole years, even if my debit card expires again or they freeze my account again cause of identity theft — both of which have lead to past account suspensions, if you might recall.

Way to go, Dad. Your daughter loves you!

    Here’s a cold one raised to your dad.

    My parents give me a funny card with $25 in it every year. That’s always more than enough for me.

    I do the exact same thing! Buy books only after having read them already. People generally think thats pretty weird :o)

    But what a completely selfless present. You are so amazing!!

    Oh, and I think I need some help from the resident computer advisors…once again, even though I only go to the same twelve sites daily, I have the Resident Shield (ll0oks like AVG but not) popping up on me again…any suggestions? Cause the next time I have to wipe this thing will be the last. Sigh. I know there were a lot of things recommened to M. when she had issues…trying to access that blog entry. Thanks in advance.
