Any News is Good News

The house burned down last night. Not the whole house, but the den part of the cave where the computer sets.

When new, it had a sharp gray-and-black color, but now it’s all sooty and half-melted into some bizarre Dali sculpture. The tower leans to the left like that Italian job they keep shoring up. The keyboard is a wreck. Half the keys melded together, and won’t work. I tried typing a sentence using strange globs of grouped letters, and the frightening part was, some of it made perfect sense. Even Spell-check approved.

I wonder if the warranty is still in effect.

Oh, well. At least the firemen got a good laugh, seeing me sitting here half-naked, hair singed off and pounding away amid the flames. Funny guys, them firemen. Just wait till next year at this time, I told them.

Being endowed with just gobs of self-restraint, I didn't want to comment until April 2nd.

But, your post made me think. Why not designer PC towers? Why not have some Dali-esque tower appearing to melt into the desk? Why not have one that balances the Feng Shui? Why not have one that spontaneously combusts?

How do we manage to put up with this difficult crap, Ned. Yahoo-chat training?

Years of chat have inured us to disappointment, stilted progress and helped us develop a sense of "we must put up with this, we deserve no better". Plus, it ain't that easy moving a whole blog.

And there I was, two days late and jet-lagged, actually believing you for a minute!
The "Diamond Life" album? Still a great recording. She does work in U.K. sometimes.
A Malay speaker, too? You're a man of many parts, Harry!
Cheers, mate!

Disaster is likely to wreak havoc in the life of an individual as soon as he becomes victim to erectile dysfunction and the most significant dreadful consequence of erectile dysfunction is that the afflicted man becomes incapable of facilitating erections required for sexual intercourse. The sexual vacuum resulted from erectile dysfunction prompts the sufferer to opt for anti-impotency pills, most especially the viagra medication that was approved by FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) as a clinically effective drug to cure erectile dysfunction in men. Viagra is meant to be administered by patients only after availing of viagra prescription from the doctor. The prescription for Viagra provided by the doctor spells out that the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction seriously need Viagra to treat his disorder and further authorizes the patient to avail of Viagra from the pharmacist.
