fucking computers

My heart quite literally

Hammers on the rib cage walls

As pressure rises in my veins

And plastic splinters slide down walls.

The crash was satisfying in its crunch

But knowing what it’s cost me to

Replace is hurting hard.

I wish I’d kept my cool.

Can you tell I’m proper fucked off with IT issues at the moment? My laptop is on the blink (I’m assured that it’s just a battery thing, but then it could be planning to jet off to Mars for all I know!) and I’m literally pulling my hair out with frustration.

I am the most anti technology person there is. I have just about managed to figure out a WordPress site and even that has been a push at times. I can’t make my site do all kinds of flashy things because I’m just so crap with the technology.

I wish that we could go back to a time when there were no smart phones and social media. The internet has its uses but I could do away with about 95% of it. I’d quite like to reintroduce phone boxes and only allow people to send handwritten notes instead of emails.

I can assure you that I haven’t actually thrown my laptop at a wall but if it continues to behave this badly then I may well act on my threats.

Somebody please take me back to the 90’s when everything was simple and it was easy to shut off!

Much Love

        I have had my problems with them.
        My laptop seemed to be dying… graphics chip I was told. So the day before lockdown I nipped out and bought a new (cheap) one. It still stills in my bedroom, untouched. Heavens only knows how long it’ll take to work thghrough the Windows Updates when I do finally have to use it. It’s kinda insurance. insurance I wouldn’t have bought were it not for the lockdown
