  • Monitor The Situation

    My computer monitor has been on the blink for weeks and weeks now.
    .
    Literally on the blink.
    .
    I fire up the hard-drive and then I have to switch the monitor on and off for at least 50 times before it finally holds onto the screen image and I can start to work. (And when I say "work" I do of course mean "read all my blogs")
    ..
    Well this morning was the final straw.
    .
    Flicking it on and off for 5 minutes had no effect.
    .
    Sighing and rolling my eyes had no effect.
    .
    Screwing my face up into a nasty, pointy-shrew face had no effect.
    .
    Beating it with a roll of sellotape had no effect.
    .
    Going off and having some breakfast and pretending I didn't care had no effect.
    .
    Growling at it had no effect.
    .
    Turning into a combination of Basil Fawlty and Donald Duck had no effect.
    .
    Looking in the Argos catalogue to see how much a new monitor would cost (how much?!) had no effect.
    .
    Ringing Mr Jelly at work to whine at him had no effect.
    .
    And then, all of a sudden, it worked.
    .
    It's evil I tell you, pure evil ......
    .

    Mine gave up the ghost last month, I sent mr bright&beautiful to the charity shop to see if he could get a stop gap till I had the chnace to order a new one. He came back with one still boxed for £15 - good job when I found out the price of a new one.

              Its like half of your life has just disapeared when this thing packs up and the other half goes when the car gives up and dies like mine has just done.
              We are a sad lot. I must get out more.
