Please Stand By While We Fix Our Technical Difficulties




Okay the last two days have been plagued with techno issues around my house. First off our home phones are not working. So I called the telephone company from my cell phone and the girl says "let me check on that for you" and she comes back on the line and says "Yes I see there is something wrong with your line". HELLO?? Okay I say what can be done to fix it? So she tells me I need to go to the back of my house and open some box with a flat head screwdriver (a what?) and check it out there. And if that's not working they'll send a technician and charge me $30.00 something dollars to figure it out. So I go out back and the little box has a lock on it that looks about a hundred years old (slight exaggeration). So I have to call them back and have the techno guy come and fix it. Flat head screwdriver----hahahaha.....
And then I go to write some letters for work and my word is missing from my computer. Can't find it anywhere. I'm beginning to think it's me and not the machines. And then this morning I went to copy all of the names for the giveaway to put in a bowl and my printer decided it didn't want to print anything at all. So this is what I did. I wrote everyone's name down and put it in a bowl and picked from there. Sometimes the old fashion way still works the best. So I had my trusty friend, Mr. Gorilla do the picking of the name. I wanted Maddie(my granddaughter) to come over and do it but Mommy(my daughter who's pregnant) isn't feeling great this morning. So Mr. Gorilla who's the lucky winner? And the winner is: Maria from Me at this moment . Maria is a new blogging friend, she's a teacher from California who's studying for her Masters. Congrats Maria. It's been so much fun getting to know you and all of my blogging friends. Thanks again for being so welcoming and kind. Today on my giving thanks list, I am giving thanks for all of my blogging friends who I feel I have been blessed with. I'll be e-mailing you Maria. And now back to the techno problems that need to be taken care of. Flat head screwdriver................hahahaha...............

Somedays I wonder if technology is really a good thing.

Congratulations to Marie!

Aww shucks! I wanted to win!! I should have known. I never win anything. Even if there were only 2 contestants, me being one of them, I would lose. Congratulations to Maria though, cough. Seriously, hack-cough, I'm happy for her. Cough cough!

Love,
Julie

Hey! You tell that stupid monkey that he picked the wrong name!! I told my family that if I won, I'd really, really, really try to learn to cook. But since I didn't win...no cooking for me. It's on your monkey's head that my family will forever eat burnt foods.


Okay. I'm lying. I never intended to learn how to cook. It just isn't in me. But great giveaway anyways!! And sorry about your techno problems. I love it when the phone company asks YOU to do their troubleshooting, though. Makes me so glad that I'm paying them so much money every month. lol

I am just learning the computer and it does have its days of being helpful to me ....but what good are they when they crash??

Maria said...

OK, I think I'm jinxed by your technical difficulties post. I had a response all typed out and then it gave me an error when I wanted to publish it! LOL

Thank you for picking my name! I've never won anything in a blog giveaway. I'm really looking forward to looking at the cookbook and picking some recipes to try soon!

Actually much more fun to see the monkey picking than just a flash of what the random number generator pulled up. Very cute.
