Trial Separation

I am so frustrated!!

I gave him my total loyalty. I can't count the nights I've stayed up with him, pouring out my heart, baring my soul . . . today I spent twelve solid hours doing his bidding and what do I get for my troubles? Nothing. N-O-T-H-I-N-G!

Why, Mac? Why? I've put everything I have into our relationship. Why are you holding back? Just spit it out. Don't keep it all inside. And don't tell me my attachment's too big—I've heard that one before. What?? You can't support my choice of font? Puh-lease!

Look, I'm sick of all those warning pop-ups. You want warnings? Here's a warning . . . I want my document! Give me my document!!

OK. I need a break. Let's cool off, get some rest. I'll turn you on again in the morning. It'll all work out. No, no. I'll feel better in a while.

I'm going to finish off the pie.

"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by."

What has kept you from making a deadline lately?

Lack of inspiration and focus keep interfering with me and my deadline. Hopefully they get out of my way in the next six days!

Oh, so frustrating! I thought Macs were supposed to be the best. No?

I'm at the point in life where I don't have deadlines. Unless you can count my regularly, scheduled nail appointments as deadlines. And I NEVER miss those.

If it's the "Word of the Ward" deadline that you may miss, what's the worse that could happen? Be fired from your volunteer position?? I think not, because I doubt if there are people lined up for the job.

Ummm, very frustrating; technology can be so wonderful yet so bad!

How'd that pie work for you?

I laughed pretty hard reading this, but I do hope you and your computer work out your differences!!

I understand. I have those days, too!!!

I love the illustrations! The thing that keeps me from making deadline is email. I can't keep from checking it, and then I get drawn down a dozen rabbit trails before I get back to the roadway.

Your graphics/illustrations are so clever, as always.

What keeps me from deadlines. . . or from life in general? An ear infection that won't go away. Ouch. I'm down and out.

Thanks for the laughs, Marty. I can always count on you.

To quote "Monk", technology, like Monk's talent, can be both a gift and a curse. :)
