Monitor Bruhaha

There I was a few weeks ago, preparing to do what I do when:

Suddenly...I'm not half the man I uused to beee...there's a shadow hangin' ooover meee...

Okay, not really. My monitor started blinkin'. Seriously. Off, on, off, on,, off....until it blinked it's last blink and kaputed. Monitored for a jest cause.

A moment of silence please.

Ahem. Yes, monitor's untimely death was sad, tragic even. After a time of mourning accompanied by colorful adjectives and an unsuccessful attempt at CPR, "live dammit! Liiive!," but my superhuman efforts to revive monitor were in vain so my lovely wife Patti pronounced the TOD (time of death).

Wow! She looked beautiful, radiant and, well, hot!
I imagined what she would look like in a nurses uniform or doctor smock. This mitigated my grief considerably.

"You want me to wear what?"

Unfortunately, Patti didn't share my desire to mitigate my grief further at that time which added to my grief.

Woe, woe is me. Gonna sing the silence.

However, Patti did order a new monitor and it arrived today. And it actually works!

Ohhh, what a lucky man he iis.

Jest not THAT lucky. But don't get me wrong, I'm grateful. Thank God we could spring for a new monitor. It's very nice, and I like it.

I'm back in the proverbal saddle again.

Incidently, does anyone know how to photoshop pics? Hypothetically speaking, with a nurses uniform? Hypothetically.

Nobody wants to see you in a nurse's uniform.

Nobody wants to see Skully in a nurse's uniform, either.

You've had more than a village's share of computer problems. May this be the end of all that.

Nurse uniforms never did it for me. But bunny ears....

You should see the looks Skully gets when he's dressed as a nurse privateer, Joan.
Fortunately, this is a rare occurance, usually prefaced by a copious mixture of grog, tequila, whiskey, gin, mad dog, night train, and moonshine (jest to name a few of Skully's favorites. He will drink Vodka if nothin' else is available, and even wine coolers).

Skully denies this of course (dressing as a nurse, not the copious mixture of booze).

As for me, I gotta say even Venus razors can't make my legs easy on the eyes.
Folks are still getting therapy after the last time I tried to invoke my inner nurse Ratched. :^)

Thanks, Dojo. It was an old monitor (8 years). Or at least I'm told that is old for the quality we can expect nowadays (our panasonic microwave lasted 18 years).

Bunny ears? So...I'm guessin' rabbit hunting is a major faux paw? :^)
