The cat and the computer
The Ghost Writer has spent all day with his head stuck in a computer working out why it bleeped at him. It appears that it does not mean the computer is full of aliens from Mars reaping revenge for being annoyed again by a large 4X4, more that the computer is a bit unhappy with the snake that someone posted through the DVD player the day before and it has shorted out the hard drive. Which might have been shock tested by some aggressive banging on the table in a vane attempt to remove a snake that had accidently got stuck in it in the first place. It may have been a cat they always look innocent when the leave half a thing in the wrong place, anyway the point is, it was definitely not me. And there are no finger prints because I was wearing gloves….. The cat was wearing gloves; although so was I that was just a coincidence……… PHEW that was close.
We have been speaking to the great electrical man at the end of a phone today, about electrics, we annoyingly have an intermittent fault that will ping the main trip, sometimes a few times a day and them not for weeks on end. The result is it makes it very hard to pin this down (no one has squeezed any bits of snake or newt into any sockets either so we can’t blame the cat for this one……. OK I did blame the cat at first but then realized it was not my fault so PHEW.
And now it is getting late again, so I will need to go. Tomorrow is Monty Show, we used to go to Monty Show lots but have not been now for a few years and I don’t think we will be going tomorrow. After a game of Paper, Scissors, Stone I will now be doing some DIY and working on lights and benches, that is one of the problems with playing Paper, Scissors, Stone, the consequences can be very practical when you loose……
