It's official - Computers and anything electronic - suck!!

You might have noticed that I haven't
written a post for a while,
or not, but I forgive you for that.

I have been fighting a losing battle
with my computer and anything electronic in my house.

My computer decided that it just wasn't going to start up
and I had to keep turning the power on and off until
it decided to play the game.
Sometimes it took a week to play.

Now it has decided it will start up but my mouse pen
has gone nuts.

Now some of you may know that I am blonde and as such,
I just can't use a regular mouse.
I drive it all over the place and it never goes where I want it to, 
so my wonderful computer friend set me up with a Wacom tablet and pen
(which doubles a mouse) many years ago and I haven't looked back.
That is until the pen went nuts.  It can be in it's holder and things start
to highlight and move, rather creepy actually.
 I have to hit the pad numerous times before it does anything and then it gets stuck and won't let go of things, argh!!! 
 Highlighting anything is a whole new adventure.

So, I have decided that enough is enough and I'm going to post
with or without the co-operation of this evil being, so if things 
are all over the place, blame the pen.

Here is my desk, it's rather a sorrowful sight.

Although you can't see it, I have been chasing this image all over the place but I thinks it has settled here for now.
 Even my paints and paintings are right where they are month ago.
 I haven't picked up a pen or brush for ages
but now I am determined to get back to it.

From next week I plan to pick up the brushes again
and if this stinking computer will play nice for once,
I might even be able to show you.

There have been heaps more electronic
 gadgets that have made my life
hell lately but that is for another post,
if it will let me.

I hope to be able to visit other WOYWWer's this week,
but please forgive me if this evil machine prevents that.

Now you have read my tale of woe (he he),
hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground
and see what is on the desk of others this fine and warm Wednesday.

PS.  I've just noticed that the text is a bit weird
but on my compose screen it is fine,
just another thing playing up I guess!!!
