Well, Bing has my new computer up and running and I am ready to tear my hair out over the keyboard. I told her that I DETEST this new keyboard and she swears up and down and sideways that if I just give it a chance, I will love it.
I wil give it one month and if I hate it still, she says she will change it back.
The new mac is faster than my old one, but I am an old dog...I like things to stay the same...LIKE MY OLD KEYBOARD. This new one isn't like typing on a typewriter keyboard, but is "touch set" so all I have to do is sort of skim my fingers over it and letters pop out. Unwanted letters, in my case. Bing says that it will be better for my arthritis. We will see. Right now, I am just...frustrated.
Anyone else have this new fangled key board? Did you acclimate to it?
And when did Bing get so fucking bossy? I also keep being asked by something called LiveUpdate to key in my password. I don't HAVE a password. When I showed it to Bing, she sort of scowled and said to just pull it to the side until she can get to it. Well, you know how fast she is about finding time to do this shit. She bought us all new computers in early June and it wasn't until today that she hooked them up.
And all of my bookmarks are gone, so I must start all over. A shame because, whenever someone comments on my blog, I bookmark their blog site so that I can make a visit to their blog as well. I had about 50 bookmarked that are all gone now. SO...if you recently commented on one of my posts and I don't have you in my blogroll, comment again and I will get to you.
And guess where the old computers are? Sitting in my office plugged into a power strip because Bing says that until she can get rid them of them, they have to stay plugged in so they don't lose power. MORE MESS. Frustration. I told her that this is not NORMAL, that when people buy a new television, etc. they don't keep the old one. She just gave me one of her looks.
It is a constant battle between us...her need to live in a house so messy and sloppy that she could be on the show, "Hoarders" and me trying to keep things tidy.
Sometimes, she just irritates the snot out of me, ya know? (And dear Lee...I know you think it won't ever happen to you in your love bliss, but it WILL.) She also went grocery shopping today and asked me if there was anything I wanted that wasn't on the list. I said yes, some Noosa honey yogurt would be nice for a snack tonight when True Blood was on.
Guess what was the one thing that she forgot? Yup.
And she also bought raisin bread instead of rye bread because it "looked tasty and we don't need two loaves of bread."
Well, I somehow don't think that Liv will enjoy her tuna salad sandwiches on raisin bread instead of rye.
Sometimes, I look at her and want to throw a grape at her head, you know?
So, let's have a bitch fest. What does your spouse/partner/whomever do that bugs the hell out of you?
Have a go, folks....
