So, my dog was supposed to graduate from puppy school tonight. Oh, I had a million jokes about The Graduate I was going to tell you. I was going to say one word — plastics.
But no. We got there and there was a whole crop of NEW puppy school people, all going around the room (not literally) saying who their dogs were and why they were coming to obedience training. It was kind of like that scene in St. Elmo's Fire when they go to their old bar and there was a new gang of college students at their regular table.
Anyway. Either Anita our teacher got the date wrong, or Marvin did. Either way, my dog has not graduated. She is a dropout. Perhaps later she can get her GED. Or her DOG or whatever. I don't know how she expects to find gainful employment without that diploma. I had dreams of her becoming a game show host, like Bob BARKER.
Or an actor like Sam SHEPHERD.
I went back to work today. I had barely put my purse down when 8,000 people ran in and gave me stuff to do. Okay, I've been there THREE MONTHS. What did you all do before I got there? Yeesch.
At any rate, I was working away, and I rested a large book against the keyboard, and I am not even making this up:
That book hit SOMETHING, and suddenly? Everything on my computer screen turned
Seriously. I am not even kidding you.
Sometimes it feels like things only happen to me.
I had to go find the computer guy, who is already bemused by me, as all computer guys always are. When I was new, he asked me what kind of computer I had at home and I said square and beige.
When I found him, I said, "Mike? Something so stunning has happened to my screen that I can't even try to explain it. You must come here."
"These things only happen to her," Mike told the guy he was talking to.
You should have seen the two of us, hanging like bats in front of my computer screen. And the MOUSE worked opposite, too. So that made it easy. Finally, we were in hysterics. It was just so ridiculous, as Ricky Ricardo would say. We got online, upside down, and upside down we typed "computer screen is upside down" and believe it or not we figured out how to fix it.
Wanna try it? I can't get it to work on this computer, but maybe it will on yours. You need to hit Control/Alt/and the down arrow all at the same time. Then to fix it, and I do hope you read this before you do it, otherwise all the blood is rushing to your head right now, you hit Control/Alt/up arrow.
What were the CHANCES that my book would hit just those three keys? I felt like maybe I'd suddenly been transported to China or something, to the other side of the Earth.
So, it was a topsy-turvy day. I think I was framed.
You know you've missed me playing with the webcam.
