Monkey Monday!!!

Happy Monkey Monday!


I went on a little sight seeing trip this weekend. Actually it was only a few blocks away from my house. It's a Revolutionary War House. One of the many where George Washington slept..hehe. I took some pics of it and the surrounding landscape with my new camera (which I will show you a little later this week). But that's not what I really want to say here...although I just did..but hey, ok, so I did!

In order to download the pics from the picture card on my camera I'm to insert the card into a little card holder first that fits my computer because the card itself doesn't fit. I forgot that! In my eager excitement (obsessiveness) I took the card from the camera and put it into the slot in my laptop. That's the moment I remembered it's supposed to go into the holder first! Damn, damn, and damn! It's like when a VCR tape used to get stuck in your VCR, only this was 100 times smaller! Damn! I didn't have a little tiny screwdriver to get it out!! I tried tweezers, pins, banging it on it's side! I thought to myself "I'm not taking this into the store to get this out, this is crazy!!!! I felt so stupid! Damn again! In desperation I pushed the card "holder' into the slot and it caught onto it and came out! What a fool am I...., I sang all night. And no, I didn't break my laptop nor the picture card! Lucky again!!!

I need someone to watch over me!!! Damn!

Peace

For some reason, I expected you to post a "George Washington made sweet monkey love here" kind of post.

Glad you didn't break anything important with your computer. :)

sigh... well that's good odat. you know what i have found out though is those little blue card thingys stop working after you take them in and out a bunch of times. it happened to me twice now. all my pics from 2004 europe are lost. now i leave it in the camera and use the cord thingy from the camera to the computer and it seems to work better. cause i take pics all the time. see? and all this time y'all thought i was just a big dummy, right odat? now can i have some cake cause i told you a hint?

smiles, bee

Odat said...

Ian, I wish I had thought of that!
But hey, you're the writer, I'm not..;-)

Michael, You can say that again! Wooden teeth and all....

sarge, how come?

bee, thanks for the tip...I'm going to get the cake now!

I do stuff like this all the time. My poor husband is constantly bailing me out. Hang in there and get that cake for Empress Bee. Have a great day. :)

MyUtopia said...

Woohoo, glad to hear things are going well. I love the Monkey pic.

Dan said...

That guy Washington slept all over didn't he? What a slut! :)

Patti said...

Glad that it all worked out for you.

I just met a couple who own a restaurant in CT in an historic house and they said George Washington ate there! Now there's a switch. They didn't say "sleep."

Ralph said...

GW did seem to sleep around in CT...

This thing with the card is really not so bad. It is no worse than misloading the film in the Pentax K1000 and having to open the back of the camera to fix it and exposing the film...

Odat said...

Comedy...ok ok I got the cake...here Bee! It's vanilla tho...sorry!

my, hi..yeah I'm glad too.

Dan, uh huh you got that right.

Patti, lol, that sure is a different take on Georgie Boy...

ralph, Film? what's that? lol. Seriously tho, I've done that too!

Peace
