A good smirk?

I was at school with some called Smirk.  (And he did.)  I've never encountered it as a surname since.

I don't know about Linda, but I'm here now. And it's Tuesday in my part of the world.

Same here, but due to yesterday's 'lost day syndrome' my mind was telling me today was Monday.  It still is, despite mounting evidence to the contrary.  It probably won't fully re-calibrate until Wednesday.

It was a great shock when  I saw the bin lorry trundling by and realised my bin was still in the back garden, locked away behind a gate with no chance of getting it to the kerb in time.

I did initially wonder why the hell they were collecting a day early.

It is a problem with being retired. I only know now if it is gym day or not gym day. That's about all I can really manage.

All I need to do is look down at the bottom right of my computer screen and it shows me the date and the time.  But I often don't.

Mine show me the time and it is off and I don't know why. It's supposed to mesh with the world clock and yet ...

Or maybe my phone and tablet are off, but I'm going to guess the two that match are correct.

But it doesn't show me the date which is pretty useless anyway. It doesn't even have an option for showing what day of the week it is.

Just a thought...  Sometimes they do that when the little back-up battery which keeps track when everything else is switched off gets tired.  Shouldn't happen with a new machine, but may well become a problem after the three to five year mark.  Usually easy enough to swap on a tower system, but maybe it's really buried away in a laptop because they hope you'll change the whole thing every few years.

Other places can and do tell me what day it is. Just saying it isn't in my corner display.

I know tomorrow is Wednesday and that's a no gym day, so I have that going for me.

Sorry to hear about your excitement, Spell. Gyppo gave great advice.
