If you are reading this then a miracle has happened. Call the newspapers and alert the media as something mega is actually happening here. Right now today.
You don’t believe me well, read on and then decide for yourselves.
You see according to my family and the surprise of my friends getting a blog out means using technology e.g. a computer and I’m reluctant and embarrassed to say that computers and I don’t get on!
Don’t get me wrong, I like computers and what they can do in the world of social media; buying from Amazon and booking holidays without leaving the house but although they are supposed to be inanimate objects, which have a primary function of helping people, they (the computers) honestly don’t like me!
Take for instance when I wiped out a whole room of computer monitors registering heart beats. I remember my colleagues laughed when I warned them but when I was attached to one of the monitors the whole room blanked out. It took 10 minutes for them to come back online. It was a good job that this was only a health check and not a life saving operation!
Or the time that number 10 computer, in a computer suite, refused point blank to switch on when I tried to make it. It upset me tremendously when a child came to my rescue. It worked perfectly first time for him! Since then I left that computer alone for a very long time.
I remember telling the Photoshop guy quite specifically that I had a bad effect on computers but did he believe me? No he didn’t. He was confident in his superior abilities to help me out. It took three computers to stop working before he gave in and asked me to sit on the other side of the room whilst I waited for my daughter to finish on hers.
I’m sure someone out there may remember the time when I was singing along to the words of a song, (a bit like karaoke) which were being displayed on a white board screen, when the words suddenly disappeared. To everyone’s amazement and amusement they reappeared when I walked away towards the window so suffice it to say computers and I are not compatible.
I have a laptop and when using this to write, humungous sighs emanate from my body when things don’t work out or messages appear on the screen that no-one has ever seen before. Not to mention the amount of time I spend just waiting for my computer to load Google or MSN let alone how long it took for Microsoft word to download today.
So the fact that you are reading my introductory blog is a genuine surprise i.e. a miracle!
However according to my research into “How to Write a Blog” I’ve gone on for far too long so you will have to log on to me again to see what I wanted to share with you.
I only hope that my electro- magnetic force field or pulse isn’t catching through Wi-Fi, the cloud or whatever is up there floating around and your computers are not affected in any way.
I end with this disclaimer: it is not my fault! Computers are out to get me!
