It's going to be one of those days

I spent 5 minutes trying to find a number on the phone and wondering how I'd made calls before before I realised I was using the land line not my mobile.

In the bank I spent a similar time trying to work out how to get the lid off the bank's pen before realising that what I had in my hand was the pen holder and that the pen was missing.

Then I got home and my computer died in front of my eyes. It was especially bad as the recipe for the cake I'm making for Zac's tonight - and for which I'd just been out and bought the ingredients - was only available as a photo on the computer.

However as you know, I am a computer genius. I switched off the computer and turned it back on. No joy. I switched it off again, picked it up, shook it and switched it back on. Hurrah! See? Genius.

Now I'm working on the principle that things happen in threes so I'm safe for the rest of the day ...

I have these kinds of days more often than I care to admit. I've discovered the phone doesn't work as a TV remote either:)

Whoa! I never thought to give the computer a shake...maybe I'll try that. lol

And you objected to my sly dig about the "confusa" ? ;-)

Hilarious, Liz! Glad I'm not the only one out there trying to figure out pens and expecting land-line phones to act like cell phones. I'm heading 100mph toward Geezerhood!

Liz said...

No, I've noticed that too, rose.

Worked for me, leslie!

Maybe you have a point, stu.

I'm there ahead of you, mary!
