Many months ago, my computer randomly shut off and decided to not turn back on. I eventually got it started again, but it didn’t seem to want to stay on. I basically gave up on it and I’ve just been sharing with Anson.
Sharing has been fine until Anson left for a work trip (to Florida which means I am completely jealous & grumpy). He selfishly took his computer with him which has left me with my fabulous laptop. It turns on and everything is fine–until it’s not! Last night, it decided that everything I typed should be IN CAPS. Then it would randomly throw in a lower case letter whenever it desired. Nothing better than a blog post where you’re SHOUTING AT YOUR READERS!
I also have about 15,000 pictures on this computer (12,000 are probably junk, but going through that many pics is a daunting task!). Last night, I tried to drag one picture onto my desktop. ONE. This is what my screen looked like….
My computer decided I needed 283 pictures instead of just one. 283. I stopped it before they were all transferred. Then I sent Anson a large number of I HATE MY COMPUTER AND AM THROWING IT OUTSIDE IN THE SNOW texts. He replied with the obligatory, “I’m sorry,” and continued his journey to the sunshine and no snow ever State. (I almost hope he gets sunburnt. Kidding. He tans in about five minutes and is obsessive with his sunscreen application, anyhow…)
So, if my blog posts this week are mostly angry or filled with lots of extra CAPITALS, please know that it’s not me! My computer is possessed.
Happy Monday everyone!
