Grrrr...



I think that maybe I'm in the prime of my senility. I wrote a post a little bit ago in "Word." (It's below this one.) Copied it and pasted it into "Hello." Published it. I knew that it would have question marks everywhere that I had used a quote mark or a ' mark. No problem. Publish, go into edit and correct them.

BUT NOooooooooo. Damn thing won't let me back in. Thinkin' about throwing the PC out the window. Ya know? Like in the cartoons?

EDIT: Okay. All is well. Sort of. Damn thing.
Double Edit: Or maybe it's Edit P.S. What's the etiquette on that?
Anyhoo, maybe Pentamento? Spell check ain't liking that.
I forgot where I was. Senile alright.
Double Dog Dare EDIT: Finally realized that of course, a double edit, or a second edit, is so obviously a Double Dog Dare Edit. I tell ya, this gettin' old is for the birds.
Now, if I could only remember what the heck I was going to say in the second edit....

I'm sitting here laughing to myself ... and thinking, you know, somebody there needs a twinkie. xoxoxo

schnoodlepooh said...

Ohhh twinkies! Excellent idea!

Saur♥Kraut said...

You can't be too senile. You lost me at 'hello'...

I have no idea how you do that, and I have great respect for anyone that can figure it out.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Can I have chocolate instead of the twinkies?

I understand anything electronic okay. Can't spell worth a lick. We all have our weaknesses, and mine is CHOCOLATE.

TLP, you need to let go, and let God.

Pecos Blue said...

Hope it worked out and you get a long weekend.

mireille said...

TLP, you need to let go ... and grasp this chocolate twinkie. xoxo

Tan Lucy Pez said...

*chomp chomp* Oooh, thanks Mireille! Delish!

actonbell said...

I didn't know there were chocolate twinkies.

Getting old really stinks. The worst part of it is when I forget where I put my beer. After searching for five minutes, I'll open a new one, only to find the old beer a few minutes later. Sometimes, it's not until the next day.

We keep extra beer on hand just for such emergencies.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Fred, does your wife know that beer is better than gel to style your hair with? Heck, you've got long hair; you could use it. Another use is to kill slugs. Put it out in little plates. They will crawl in and drown. Die happy. But the dyin' part is what counts.

mireille said...

Actonbell, I'm making chocolate twinkies from scratch ... in cyberspace. Want one, honey? xoxoxo

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

Senility, you say? Been there, done that more than once.

Combined with computer ineptness and, well, you can only imagine where I am at.

Have a good day, Tan Lucy!

OldHorsetailSnake said...

Somebody bring her some Prozac, quick.

actonbell said...

cyberspace twinkies? Sure, thanks!

Fred said...

Beer to style my hair? I wonder how the principal would react to me smelling like beer every morning. The possibility sure is interesting, though.

I wouldn't want to waste beer on slugs. That's beer that I could've imbibed. I like putting salt on them and watching the little pests writhe and die. It brings out the evil in me.

dddragon said...

oooh, Fred, I had no idea you were so evil!

lol

I remember mom going thru a time where she used beer as shampoo.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Geez 3D, don't be tellin' those old tales. Anyway, it loses it smell after it dries on your hair. I think. Your father was very nice about it at the time. Mmmmm....Hrmpf. Maybe he was nuzzling the beer smell instead of me. Is it too late to be annoyed?

AP3 said...

Does senility have a prime?

Doug said...

Aral, it usually peaks around 37.

Jamie Dawn said...

The remedies you gave below are great. Are they tried and true?
I love the pic. The poor skinny fellow.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Aral senility has a prime, but I'm too senile to remember it. Doug could be right. Of course, it is possible that I am simply stupid rather than senile.

That's okay then, 'cause stupidity is boundless, unlike genius, which has its limits.

Jamie, Jamie, Jamie. Would I lie about these remedies? Just ask yourself that. Would I lie?

Barbara, being able to post pictures does not equate to being smart. Not being able to post pictures does not equate to being senile. If you are senile, you gotta show it out. That's my job. Showing, proudly, my senility. I'm thinkin' of startin' up a group.

Tom & Icy said...

Woof! Double Dog Dare. Woof! Slugs in the beer. Woof! Beer Shampoo. Woof! Cyberspace Chocolate Twinkies. Woof! Senility. *Howl*

mireille said...

I second everything Icy said. And would like to join the group. Will it be like therapy? or Adult Day Care? xoxo
