Crossing of wires


Two delightful things happened to me yesterday.

First, I finally, finally, finally received from the lovely people at Amazon.com, KarenG's Farm Girl. It's been nearly three months coming but by jingo I got it!

Secondly, yes that was Charlie yesterday.

My pc has finally been fixed. Faraway Dell Inc gave me one of their finest Tech Man.

He replaced my Mother with a new Model. Yay!

Unfortunately he left the insides of my pc looking something like this:

Once I untangled all the wiring that he had knotted together my pc worked like a dream.

I don't exaggerate when I say we spent nearly 3 hours trying to figure out why despite the new Mother, my pc was still conking out.

I have no idea why he did what he did, i.e. tie up my wiring and not tell me but spend those hours finding cables and messing with my router blaming it for my pc's failure to live.

Maybe he liked the coffee I made him. Hm.

All I know was that we wasted an afternoon when all he needed to do was untie what he knotted up. And I wasted my time after he left trying to figure out why my pc was still not working.

Instead of reading Karen's lovely book!

But I'm baaaaaack!! And it feels good.

Have a lovely Saturday all my lovely bloggie friends.

Thank you for the book recommendation. It looks like Charlie is giving it a paws up recommendation so that's more reassurance that it's a fine read! :)

Too bad about having to waist 3 more hours on your PC when it should've been done right in the 1st place. Next time make sure said damaged item is fixed before giving repairman/woman any coffee! But I'm breathing a sigh of relief that you're able to use your PC again! :)

Or maybe he just liked you? Hmm?!!

Glad you're back with us Old Kitty.

OR...perhaps it was your perfume! Happy for you that all is right in your PC world. I'm fighting to get my mobile broadband working for the laptop...now there's an adventure!
Charlie, you are handsome as ever!

Beth said...

Yay for Dell! And yay for the resurrection of your beloved PC and the return of Charlie! Now where are the shoes?

Matthew Rush said...

Argh! That sounds frustrating. Thanks for sharing.

Ann said...

I believe your Tech person did it to get another cup of coffee.

Charlie looks mighty interested in KarenG's Farm Girl!!!

Have a great Saturday.

Wow. I'm glad the wires are finally sorted out. I'm also glad you received your book. I've heard good things about Farm Girl. You must tell me what you think. Have a lovely weekend. Daniel Craig asked for me to say hello. :)

Brigid said...

Great for you, Kitty. I am delighted you got your PC working, you must make great coffee.
Hope you enjoy Karen's book, happy weekeng.

Kea said...

Hurrah for a working computer! I don't understand why he'd leave the wires like that, but...shrug. Your scintillating company distracted him. :-)

Lovely to see Charlie again, I must say.

Have a marvellous weekend, both of you!

Theresa Milstein said...

Last night, I figured there was no post because of the computer repair. I hoped it was going well. Now you don't have to make that hat!

Look at Charlie cozying up the Karen's book. I missed him!

Two triumphs - the book and the computer. Yay!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Lovely to see the handsome Charlie again. I always find that when something is put right on the computer something else always seems to disappear!!
Have a good weekend and purrs to Charlie from Hannah and Lucy xx

About the Dell person,,,
We think he really liked you!!

Marg said...

Oh that is so exciting that you got your book and got the computer fixed. Too funny that you fixed it yourself, kind of.
Sure is good to see Charlie again. We missed you Charlie. You are looking good.
Happy Mother's day to your Mom Charlie.

Talli Roland said...

Yay! Welcome back! I missed the photos of Charlie - and how cool to see him snuggled up to Karen's book!

Happy cozy weekend Old Kitty!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Happy Mother's Day to you and your new mother board. Sorry your tech was related to Wilie E. Coyote.

I'm just glad you were cyber-educated enough to see what he had fouled up.

Charlie looks adorable. My feline princess, Gypsy, prefers watching TV rather than reading! Roland

penandpaints said...

Yay! Glad your pc is all better :)
And Charlie is lovely, aww

KarenG said...

How did I miss seeing this yesterday? I love that picture!! So exciting to see that Charlie approves! Since you got your pc fixed does that mean you can retrieve your novel now? Glad Farm Girl finally came! I hope you enjoy it. Now I'm a bit nervous after that long wait that it won't measure up to the suspense lol!

Love,

KarenG
