It’s Not My Fault!

On the fritz の意味 | 使い方 | | ネイティブの英語

If this blog turns out rather skimpy today, don’t blame me, it’s not my fault! The &^%$%#% computers have been sliding on and off the Internet all day.

Maybe because it’s so devilish hot. Maybe because it’s 4th of July weekend and the demands on the system are through the ceiling. Or maybe it’s just gremlins.

I will have a cigar before it gets any hotter. I have stuff I was set to write today, but we’ll just have to see if I can make it.

  1. I understand. I deal a lot with that concerning electricity. Sometimes it fluctuates so much, the lights dim, but my computer doesn’t like it, and turns off. Then, only to come back on a few minutes later, and repeat the process for hours.

  2. Our power has been a bit wonky on and off, for the better part of 15 years. Other than the few scheduled blackouts, we never know when the power is going down, and for how long it will be off. It’s been off about 5 or 6 times within the two last weeks.

    Oh, and we had another quake the other day, the kind where you don’t have to ask, “Did you feel that? My son yelled, “DAD” when my chair and desk began to move around. I don’t know what kind of power or influence he thought I had, but it didn’t help.
