Love/Hate Relationship

After spending the last hour trying to put my url for this blog under my signature in my class forum I decided to write a small paragraph telling you everything I know about computers. By the way my url is still not there even with people telling my how to do it.

I definitely have a love/hate relationship with my computer. When things are going along smoothly I'm on cloud 9 but it just takes a small thing to go wrong and I'm lost as to what to do. This is when I call my computer the devil and threaten to do it bodily harm. It holds me hostage. My computer can take me away much better than Calgon ever did and we can go sailing through cyberspace. But, as soon as I'm really feeling on top of the world its devil horns grow and it dumps me on my butt.

The problem might be that I think of it as human. It is the master and I am the slave. My good friend James tells me that it is the other way around but I think he is lying to me. Either that or he thinks I have an ounce of puter literacy, silly man.

Well, I said I was going to tell you everything I know about the computer. There is so little to tell I don't know where to begin. Most days I know how to turn it on. I know how to go to Google and find things I want to find. I can force my computer to allow me to save things of interest and I can get my husband to add more RAM when my computer tries to thwart me by slowing way down. The most helpful thing I did know was James's phone number but alas he moved 1716.48 miles away and changed his phone number. I think he and my compter are in a comspiracy against me.

Here is my useless fact for today: It is possible to lead a cow upstairs...but not downstairs.
ummm maybe I can get that cow to sit on my computer.

Have a good one!
