Random Thoughts Thursday 154

  • In a meeting yesterday, we did an activity where everyone wrote their name on a piece of paper, then passed it around the table, and everyone else wrote one positive thing about that person. It was interesting to see what people said about me, since I’ve been in this group less than six weeks! Someone accidentally wrote “well dressed” on mine. Ha ha ha. Ha. Ha.

  • Gmail users, do you have the “undo send” setting turned on? I do. I didn’t realize how much I rely on this feature until recently.  I was using a shared gmail inbox at work and hit send, then wanted to undo the send because I saw a typo. But I couldn’t, because that setting wasn’t turned on for that inbox! I also wanted to undo a send in yahoo mail the other day… I don’t think that’s even an option there. I suppose instead of relying on it I could do a better job proofreading (not just for exclamation points)??!?!
  • Those of you using Garmin Connect – did you see you can add a photo to your workout entries now? I added some, and like how they show up in the mobile app (top of the screenshot below). A while ago, I read that Garmin wants Connect to be more of a social media platform. Adding the photo option must be part of that effort. I think it’s fun.

  • Steven proposed a recurring blog series idea to me this week – “No F*cks Friday,” where I talk about something from my week or something the media is talking about that week, that I don’t give an eff about. Ha ha ha. Oh Steven. Maybe “IDGAF Friday”?

  • We don’t have cable or antenna at home (we have a ROKU and a few streaming subscriptions) so we get somewhat excited when we are traveling and have a chance to watch network/cable TV. Sad. Anyway. We were planning to watch some TV when we were in Iowa last weekend but we were too busy! And I was all pumped to watch the David S Pumpkins special. Ha ha ha.

    I like Steven’s idea!!! 👈🏻See what I did there? And, I had no idea you could add a pic to Garmin. You may have to show me how to do that 😉. Is it shareable, like to the Facebook or Insta?

    • kilax says:

      Yes, ha ha. 🙂 If you look at the image from the post, you click the button that looks like a camera to add the photo. And the button next to it (that looks like file upload) is the button you click to share it.

    I remember doing an ice breaker like that a couple times in high school, which is definitely a time where it’s nice to hear compliments from your peers. And you do seem to dress nicely on your office days, so that probably wasn’t an accident! 😛

    I would read IDGAFF posts 🙂

    I just noticed the pic option on Garmin Connect the other day. I love it, since I take a ton of pictures on most of my runs (at least I do now… not sure how much I will once the leaves are all off the trees).

    We actually just canceled cable a couple weeks ago and signed up for Sling (just waiting for our Roku to arrive in the mail). I definitely like how much cheaper it is considering how rarely we (or at least I) watch TV, and it seems like you can choose what you want to pay for better with subscriptions than just getting the super expensive cable packages.

    • kilax says:

      That IS a good time to hear that from your peers! LOL, thanks 😉

      I look forward to seeing your pics on Garmin 🙂

      Ooo! Let me know how you like Sling. I have been curious about it! You get actual antenna/cable channels on it, right?

      • Anne says:

        LOL, it’s not much different than my IG. I did go back and add pics to most of my October runs though.

        Yep, I think the basic package is like 28 channels, then I made Terry add on a package that includes all the Christmas movie channels 🙂

    That undo send function sounds really useful! I could really use that for work emails 🙂 I always notice a typo right after I hit send 🙁 I didn’t know that about the new photo option in Garmin Connect. I’ll have to give that a try.

  4. Karen says:

    I do not have an unsend function….looking for it now!
    I love the GC picture feature, but it only works on my PC. In my mobile app it is still not an option..I wonder if you have to have a beefed up Garmin model?? I know many models have personalized watch faces and with a 225 that is not an option.
    Do !!!!!!! bother you?

    • kilax says:

      Turn it on! LOL

      It only worked on my PC until I updated the app earlier this week. I don’t think it has to do with your Garmin model. 🙂

      Exclamation points don’t bother me. I just tend to overuse them, so I try to make sure I didn’t go too crazy with them before I send something out.

  5. I saw that new photo feature in Connect, and I guess if they’re trying to make it more of a social media platform, that makes sense. I definitely didn’t understand why I’d need to associate a photo with my run when I first saw that I could do that yesterday! I do like the redesigned app, though, ESPECIALLY now that syncing happens automatically when you open it. I don’t think that was how the old app worked? It’s not how it worked on my app, at least. And I like the new interface as well. Now, if only I could learn to like my Garmin watch…hahaha.

    • kilax says:

      On the old app I felt like I had to do “pull down” to sync A LOT. And it often didn’t sync for awhile. I do hope syncing is better!

      It bums me out you’ve had such Garmin issues! 🙁 I’ve had great luck with them for years. But I also don’t run in the city much (and deal with satellite issues).

  6. Katie says:

    I like “effervescent” and “very cordial”…put them together and it sounds like a delicious cocktail, haha

  7. Kristina says:

    I definitely like the idea of “no fucks Friday”! As for Garmin Connect – because I’m running SO VERY little these days, I’ve actually given up on Garmin Connect. Maybe the photo option will motivate me? Probably not, but it’s a thought!

    • kilax says:

      I will have to work on some topics for it!

      Do you still cycle and swim? I use my Garmin watch to track that stuff too 🙂 You could see if the photos motivated you to run! LOL!

  8. Julie says:

    Being a Facebook hater, I love ❤️ Steven’s idea!

  9. Mica says:

    I noticed that lots of people had written down “friendly” and “helpful,” and I 100% agree with those assessments.

    That video is amazing! Thank you for sharing it. It made my day!

    • kilax says:

      Aww, thank you!

      Yay, finally someone watched the video! I have that saved in my insta and watch it a few times a week for laughs.

  10. Shelley B says:

    I don’t particularly need an UNDO button, but I do need a “read my mind and write what I really mean to say” button because sometimes I reread what I sent and think “what did I mean by that??” LOL

    • kilax says:

      Do you feel like that happens when you were typing but thinking about something else? I’ve been so busy lately, I’ve noticed I’ve been doing that.

      Or is that just your MO? LOL
