Technology and I have a very uneasy relationship. As in, I don't like things electronic/digital and they don't like me!
It could be a computer, mobile phone, heating timer or SLR camera, it doesn't matter, they know just how to wind me up. I approach them all with caution. Despite working with £1,000,000 MRI scanners every working day (I kid you not, they do cost that much) I have a thorough dislike of everything computerised. Computers cannot be trusted.
They have minds of their own, and when they think it's time to wind Ann up again, they do just that! They don't care that I am known to be a patient person or that I taught myself how to use their programmes. Nor do they care that I never saw a computer until I was over twenty and learned their DOS language just to communicate on their level. Oh no, Let's Just Have Some Fun At Ann's Expense is a regular sport!
So, in advance of Monday, when I change telephone and broadband supplier, and will have to personally set up wireless broadband in the house, having never done said task before, and knowing it will all go terribly awry as anything involving me and computers has a habit of doing, I hereby announce:
1. I will be in a 'do-not-talk-to-me-I'm-too-stressed-out' mood all day and will growl if approached
2. it may be quite some time before I am blogging again
3. I might turn my computer off and on one time too many and need emergency repairs
4. the repairs might be for the computer...... might be for me!
