I think the first post is the tricky one…you want to impress your audience otherwise most of the people who will read it won’t come back for a second one BUT for a non professional writer AND a “non English mother-tongue” is a real challenge! Am I inspired tonight? To be honest no!
Main reason: my laptop charger is basically playing me up… my screen light is going ON and OFF 30 times a minute (I’m actually counting!). I thought that buying a new cable charger would fix the problem but no… This stupid laptop doesn’t want to charge! Beatrice threw it too hard on the floor so something got broken inside. Poor Bubu she just wanted to copy mamma when she sits on the sofa and put the laptop on her lap… she wasn’t lucky during the transition from the living room table to the sofa… her little hands couldn’t grab it properly and BAAAAAAANG right on the floor.. (new wooden floor, which by the way was scratched all over the place by our cats the same day it was laid down )
Isn’t annoying when your laptop doesn’t work? And isn’t annoying to see how men can get so excited when you start screaming that you hate your pc? They just cannot wait to come and save you…They GENTLY grab your laptop from your hands and… that face , yeah the face which says “ Give it to me, I will fix it in a second honey, I will be your hero” They soon start opening files and folders from places you didn’t even know your pc had…and actually you DON’T want to know anything about those dark places..
After 10 minutes they give it back to you with a satisfied face which totally says “who’s the daddy here?!?!” but no, they don’t speak they just look at you like they would look at a poor puppy left in the rain.. you poor puppy, was it that difficult to find a shelter and avoid get wet? Was it that difficult understanding that you only needed to download that famous update that has popped up for the last 6 months on your screen?!?!? Yes it is ! it is painful!!! if I see any update what so ever I always hit the button “do it later” so months pass by and one day, they day you decide to start writing on YOUR OWN blog, the laptop starts playing up with you… but what happens that day? Your knight who can clearly see you sitting in the corner of the room swearing in different languages and cursing your laptop, decides not to come and save you..
He weakly whispers few words like “is it working now honey?” from distance ( distance is definitely not the right word – if you read my “about”post, my flat is so tiny that calling distance the space between me and him in the living room at the moment is just a joke) if I stretch my leg I can probably touch the sofa where he is sitting on , lying actually and what is he doing? Why is he not coming to save me? Oh yeah I see… yesterday he got ANOTHER just released blue ray DVD so now he’s watching it… on his huge TV (it’s not huge but to my eyes, woman eyes, that monitor is gigantic for our mini flat ) pardon me I can’t call it TV (bad bad!!) it is a led TV that HIS friends gave us for OUR wedding… like if I wanted a led TV (not even sure it’s called led , I think plasma were the old ones no?) Anyway he left me alone in my drama..while I’m typing away I can see he doesn’t t even know I’m in the room anymore… he probably doesn’t even remember I was shouting 5 minutes ago swearing at this stupid laptop! He is now part of the gang… he is one of the bad guys on the TV ( sorry on the led TV) who are shooting and screaming and saving the world.. oh well he decided to save the world tonight…not me..
mhhh as I speak I notice.. I notice my eyes don’t see spots in between the lines anymore.. my laptop screen light is not going ON and OFF anymore…the charger is charging! Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! I can finally start writing my first post.
