Brief hiatus (I hope!)

September 13, 2011

As much as I enjoy blogging and twinking around on the computer, I’m really a techno dork.  For all I know my computer is run by tiny gnomes who’ve had way too much coffee.  My husband and kids don’t understand how I can remain so perpetually clueless because computers somehow make sense to them.  But I just don’t get it.  I want to, but for some reason my brain doesn’t retain that sort of information well.

I don’t own a laptop.  I sit at a big ole desk and tap away at a full-sized keyboard.  I would love the portability of a laptop computer, but those tiny keyboards make me invent words previously unknown in any language.  It’s a trade-off, I suppose.  Someday I hope to own a laptop and invent an entire new language.  Until then, I will enjoy my spot here at “the big desk computer” (called that to differentiate it from “the small desk computer”) with the jerk-face dog farting at my feet.

Seriously…how does such a small dog make such a big stink?

Tomorrow, however, I will not be tapping away at my keyboard here at the big desk computer.  The big desk computer is going into the computer hospital for a check-up and probable brain transplant. It could be a couple of days before I have it back.

Though I installed the WordPress app on my iPhone, I don’t know how to use it because I’ve never had to do so.  I’ll twink around with it tomorrow.  Maybe I’ll get a blog post up.  Maybe I won’t.  Maybe I’ll unintentionally offend some Amazon tribe with terrible insults about their mothers as I try to post from a keyboard that is so small that it makes a laptop keyboard look mammoth.

The blog challenge will no doubt roll on without me for a day or two.  But if I’m not back soon, please send a rescue team with some bargaining items that might appeal to Amazonian tribes.  I might need someone to talk them into trading me back for a couple of pigs, a few strands of beads, and a package of blank CDs.  Shiny!

    I will miss your ability to make me laugh out loud while sitting in a room all by myself. Hope your computer brain is up and running very soon!

    The bad news is that even tho your computer is gone, the small dog will continue to fart largely!!!!!
