The Update: a Horror Story

Well, now what do I do?

The computer sez “install new updated version of Firefox.” I didn’t dare try, but Patty did. That was an hour ago. It still doesn’t work. It just sits there “configuring.” It’ll only take a few minutes, she said.

Meanwhile, viewership has imploded and today is shaping up as a right proper rotter. Where did everybody go? Was it something I said? I wonder if other bloggers have experienced this lately.

Yes, I’m typing this on another computer. We have two. The one I use has stopped working. What a great update. As Pyrrhus once said, “Another such victory and I am undone.” I don’t have a victory, but I love using classical quotes. It keeps me from cursing.

So now I guess I’ll go back outside and try to read this big thick book with really small print that I have to review for Chalcedon. It’s all about postmodernism. After that I guess I’ll scream for a while.

  1. I haven’t been commenting as much as usual for the past couple of days because I’ve been feeling ghastly. No, not the Wuhan — or at least I don’t have the defining symptoms. Just feeling woozy and tired all the time, with off-and-on scratchy throat, off-and-on queasiness and loss of appetite, and (most worrisome of all) off-and-on chest pains. Actually, I think some of it may be from having to wear dirty hankies (aka face masks) in all the stores where I shop, as well as being subjected to the ubiquitous reek of hand sanitizer in stores and even in church. Or then again, maybe I just have a touch of flu.

    On the bright side, though, I take some of these symptoms as a good sign, asign that I don’t have the Wuhan, because with Wuhan you lose your sense of taste and smell. and chest pains and scratchy throats don’t come and go but just arrive and get worse. But in any case, sometimes I’m just too dragged out and woozy to comment much. Maybe my body got one of those upgrades and has slowed down as a result. (I think that kind of upgrade is called old age.)
