Testing, testing....

The big computer has gone big capute (What is it with this big description? I've taken to saying the ' big light' as in "turn off the big light, so I can fall asleep in front of the telly and no one will notice..." sadly I think it's an age thing....) so like I was saying, big computer big capute, it's showing us The Blue Screen of Death, that sounds promising doesn't it? There were warning signs....the mooing when it was turned on (!) was a bit of a give away to be honest, but after we ignored it for the first year it was really easy to take no notice for the following two years, consistency is one of my strengths don't you know? Was there a point to this post? Only a very small one in that I've worked out how to post from Flickr to here, see always a silver lining to be found! Shame I haven't loaded any pics on Flickr for an eternity because I couldn't ever see when I was going to use it.
OW! That hurts! Does it have to be quite so painful when the penny finally drops!!

Thanks for the tip so the mooing sound my computer makes is a bad sign , I have been warned . I hope you get yours fixed or maybe even a new one soon .

Usually it depends on the size of the penny and where you drop it. I suggest not dropping it on your foot.

Quick, sell the Big Computer and get a flash new Apple thingy.

Sorry to hear about the blue screen, and I bet you'll miss the friendly mooing!

I was living in a parallel universe sans t'internet for such a long time I was starting to enjoy it. Funny how you can get used to something just because it's there. (Ah so that's how marriage works then)I'm back now and so it seems are you.YAY! I miss you (just got your month old email, sozzaz) lets get together soon xxxx Just read that back and it makes no sense. But, I will call you afore the week's end. x

Sometimes, very, very, occasionally, clicking on 'Next Blog' takes one to interesting places. I love the way you write, you make the mundane sound so entertaining. I loved the story about the button coverer: romantic without being soppy.
