Some times Ty Ming works in your favor. Take last night, for example…
So there I was in the thinking room as the year was winding down. I decided to replace the never-ending To Do list with a new years greeting for Mum. It came out okay, if I do say so myself. So I decided to share it with the world. Or at least with my loyal reader. (Note the singular.)
So I got the camera and shot a picture of it for last night’s Happy New Year post. Had a small problem with [x]ing the wrong window after previewing it and had to redo the post. No big deal. I managed to get it posted at about five minutes of twelve.
Then Mum and I chatted for a couple of minutes before I decided to see if CNN.com was running a live stream of the ball drop. Sure enough they were. So I clicked on the link.
“You video will start in 30 seconds – after this commercial.”
I have no recollection of what they were advertising and I really don’t care. After the ad finally went away I got a pop-up asking if I wanted to load some New! and Improved! software on my computer. No thanks. Just give me my video. Thank you very much.
Loading … loading … taking our time … loading …
6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1…
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Then they played a recording of Auld Lang Sine. Not being a big Sinatra fan I switched it off when the switched over to New York New York.
Ty Ming is evy sing!
