The laundry is started

, I have the laundry going and the timer set to tell me when to go to the laundry room and move the clothes from the washer to the drier.

I'm listening to music on Jango, which is a music service similar to Pandora. I have no opinion to offer as to whether Jango is better or worse than Pandora. I don't remember signing up for Jango, though I suppose I must have. I'm also signed up with Pandora. My Jango account was created using the "not the real me" email address associated with my "not the real me" virtual world identity. So there's two things to do when I get to it, create a Jango account associated with the gmail identity this blog is associated with, and find my Pandora account; I think I have a Pandora account for my real world self, although if I do, it was created with my "family and bills" gmail account.

The Flock blog editor is much much nicer to enter a post with than the blogger post editor. There's no lag in the typing with the Flock editor. There's another thing to do: get a Flockstar badge to add to this blog.

The idea behind using a Google blog is that it is easy to put Adsense into your blog. Unfortunately , Google only wants you to use one Google ID with Adsense, and I made an Adsense account for my alias identity. I've only got 4 cents in that Adsense account, so cancelling it it not a a problem financially, but it's one more thing to do, and if I'm going to have to do stuff, I ought to do something more important, like figure out what I'm supposed to do with my daughter's college financial aid stuff.

Dealing with my mail in a sane person's way is another thing I need to do. That's connected with the daughter financial aid stuff I haven't done.

Another thing I need to do is the dishes, putting them in the dishwasher and starting it. My college daugher is coming back in mid-December, and the entire apartment is a wreck. I never have any energy to clean the place up. If I don't clean it up there will still be trash in the same spot it was when she went off to college. That would be embarassing. I'm used to being embarassed or even ashamed by my many failings and abnormal behaviors, but that doesn't make it feel good.

So, let's see, I have a Second Life and a Vivaty account under the name Sharcel Bellic, and a Hipihi account under the name Sharcel. I should be able to embed my Vivaty scene in this blog post, in some way or another. Heh, I'm still logged in at Vivaty, my ugly avatar is still there leaning back and forth in the default animation.

Defunct view of no longer existing Vivaty scene has been deleted.

The above embedded piece of code appears to want to take up a giant chunk of space in the post; I'm guess you are supposed to be able to get the scene displayed at a usable size there. I haven't done any customization to my Vivaty scene yet; I just got the account today, and in the Flock browser, the Vivaty scene is running very slowly. Possibly it would work better with a different browser and or a reboot of the computer.

Time to post this.
