whine without cheese


its 10:37 PM
i sit here
exhausted
a bit frustrated
feeling a lot stupid 

no
 really

 if only
 i would read the manuals
 when i get a new electronic gadget
 truth is
 i did
 look
 at the manual
 but
 i didnt 
really
 read 
it

after
 i almost cried
 because
 i couldn't get the new printer
 to
 print in a mode 
i set
 i gave up and did what the printer wanted 

after i printed all the holiday cards
 i decided to print a photo of toonman and me
 that 
took 3 tries
 because 
again
 i need to pay attention

 duh

 and
 then 
i found the printer cleaning paper i couldn't find the other day

 where was it 
why
 it was with the printer paper

 of course

 i was looking for something 8x11
 and
 its not

who cares

 i found it
i used it
 and 
in the process 
discovered
 the printer has setting adjustments 
for the different inks 

gah

 i am so thick
 sometimes
 anyway
i am tired
 cranky
 and
 have to go to the dentist tomorrow morning
 yup 
another
 whatever the heck they are 
that keep happening to my gums
 i think
 maybe
 its from all the not nice things i say during the day
 all that nasty
 leaves residue 
on my gums

 keep digits crossed
 its only something minor
 not
 another
 infection or root canal 

ok
 thats it

 done whining 

done writing

  1. Oh, you poor thing,
    nothing more frustrating than having printer trouble late at night when one really should relax and get ready to bed!
    Wishing I could offer you a cup of ginger tea and Christmas cookies. Would offer you my vanilla crescents, but they are not "real" ones as my daughter says, I made them with buckwheat flour. I like them nevertheless, even too much (too many, that is), so if you want to nibble some, you are welcome. Just don't tell the dentist!
    Good luck this morning,
    Merisi

  2. Oh dear. Big hugs to you sweetie. I know what that's like because I rarely read manuals either. There's something experiential about my nature which turns every manual I try to read into Mandarin. No idea what that's all about. Oh well, once you've done it you'll probably remember for next time.
    But dentist...ugh...you have my deepest sympathy. In Sept I was threatened with a future preventative measure of taking out a row of molars...even tho they are perfectly healthy...because of potential damage from the treatment and future complications. Agonizing decision, but stuff that for a game of soldiers, teeth stayed put!!! Everything's survivable sweetie. The dentist will be only a bad memory in a day or two.

  3. Going to the dentist... not a good thing. The weekend will soon put that behind you, though.

  5. Sorry, I gave up on color printers and bought a laser printer for Logan's schoolwork. For photos I upload and have the neighborhood Walgreens print out. Not as handy but I've had lots of late night frustration messing with printers myself.
