There were two funnies I want to be sure to write down before I lose them forever. Well, actually there were a lot of funnies today with CCR, but a lot of that is private and well, our own humor. But I can share one thing from today and I told Carol I was gonna.
So Carol is great with computers. She is not afraid of them and so she just does stuff to learn and over the years has become quite the guru. Where she lives, everyone knows this, and they all come to her when they are having computer problems.
So one day, this good ol’ boy (her description, she said he always wore a cowboy hat and was well, a good ol’ boy) who had just bought a brand new computer knocks on her door. She opens the door and he looks frantic, almost like he’s gonna lose it and says, “I shrank the internet!!!!” Carol just looks at him deadpan. When she said this today I said, “oh he minimized the browser?” Well, that’s what Carol thought too, but with people like this, she has to physically look at the machine. So she trudges up to his apartment and takes a look and he had indeed shrunk the internet.
You know that little button between minimize and close, the one with the 2 little windows, the one that makes the window smaller or larger? Yeah. He clicked that and “shrunk the internet”, and was convinced he had broken his computer.
Wow. I promise, Carol has come to the rescue of much bigger issues, but that was priceless.
And, I gotta pick on Canadians, and I told B I was gonna blog this. The other day he was watching a Guns n Roses concert on youtube. There is never a shortage of concerts online. Seems like everyone videotapes concerts nowadays and hell, with the price of tickets buying these people homes in every country, I’m glad you can now watch these crazies from the comfort of your own home, no matter how annoying it is for the blind girl you live with who has to be able to hear her computer, but oh, wait, that’s not the point of this blog.
So Guns n Roses are doing a Canadian tour. So B is watching video from this and he’s like, this is crap. One of the videos sounded so awful I asked him to turn it off, and he was actually in the process of doing it himself. He says, those Canadians can’t do it right. Then he mumbled something else and I thought he said, those Canadians can’t do anything right. I told him I was going to tell my Canadians that he said they can’t do anything right and he said, that’s not what I said! I said they can’t video concerts right.
I think it’s probably just the Guns n Roses sucks these days without Slash. And apparently, if you wore a Slash or Velvet Revolver shirt to the concert, you were asked to leave.
Hmmm, you know, I think this is much less picking on Canadians and rather picking on B and his music 😉
