So I have a question

What I want to know is, when did I turn into my mother? Was I napping that day? Was I out somewhere? Or was I just not paying attention? My mother would not let us make popcorn in her microwave oven (in 2008) because she was afraid her apartment would catch on fire. Right. I used to shake my head. But NOW, I am about as terrorized by technology as she was by microwaves. (Did I mention that when I went to Disneyland when I was 6, they were introducing people to these new fangled microwave ovens and everyone was just AWED by them?) This picture is of me muttering about why the heck is my shutter release not working on my camera FLASH!!!!! Geesh.
My daughter gave me a digital photo frame for Christmas last year. I just got the photos onto it last week. I took it to work, but couldn't figure out how to hang it. I had to ask the maintenance guy. The tire pressure light has been on in my truck for eons. I've checked the pressure, it's fine. I just ignore the light. Why can my computer never recognize me when I try to sign onto my own blog and why does it send a newsletter that I have been receiving for three years to my junk mailbox every day, even though I have told it over and over that it is not junk? Yet every website I have ever visited or even thought about visiting knows my bra size?
Uncle. I give up. I'm going to make some popcorn. In the microwave.


  1. Lol I can totally picture you muttering to yourself as you wrote that. Shaking yyour head....

    Then the idea of popcorn pops into your brain and all is forgoten... until tomorrow when you get in the truck and the light is still on and you wonder about it all over again.

    By the way, alot of the time tire pressure lights will go on in the newer vehicles because of the temperature change. You have no idea how many times ppl brought their cars into Shag all confused and worried and it ended up being nothing lol.

    Love you.

  2. You're cracking me up! I drive my car with the check engine light on every day.

    Each time I take it to the mechanic, he repairs the faulty fuse and charges me a mint for the effort.

    I finally gave up and decided I'll find out if I have car trouble when it starts wheezing or losing parts on the highway!

  3. You are too funny. I hear ya talkin' about when did we become our mothers.

    My son and I go round and round about updating and adding things to my computer. And I THOUGHT I was mildly intelligent!

    All children since 1975 have been born with a new chip in their heads that allows them to be smarty pants with anything technological...we however, did not get that little add-on.

    Oh well, maybe in our next life!


  4. I'm constantly running back into the house to make sure I didn't leave my rollers plugged in (rollers, that in and of itself makes me old). I also now and freaked when a check anything light comes on too...sigh....


Thank you for your visit. I really appreciate it!
