Clueless in Moraga

Clueless in Moraga

It’s official.  There’s no discussion.  I should be on display in the Smithsonian next to the dinosaur exhibit.

While I watched my 15-inch deep television with a slot for videotape, I made a list of electronic gizmos advertised, gizmos I don’t understand.  We still get TV ads.  Bruce has not figured out how to install the DVR thingy so we can skip ads.

Droid – Short for “android,” but I guess not.

Twitter – Light laughter.

MARCUS PSP – No idea what it is, but it costs only $9.99.

Blackberry – Text messaging and phone combination.

Portable Play Station – In my opinion, a shopping bag full construction paper, scissors, and paste.

I tried “Making My Own Web Page in One Evening” as promised by the GoDaddy domain company.  Now I have a domain that says I am a dog trainer, not an author.  I definitely did something wrong.

Then there is our new toaster oven, bristling with knobs and dials.  The instruction booklet is as thick as a People magazine.  All I want to do is make toast.  So far, I’ve converted two slices of bread into charcoal.  I gave up on the third slice and ate it barely warm.  A new downer in my life – Defeated By Toaster.

Maybe Bruce and I can share the same Smithsonian display space.  He can’t figure out the DVR instructions and I cannot figure out anything else.

    YAY, it posted! Well, you can cross “blog” off your list. 🙂

    Not to worry. We all have our technology-challenged moments…like the time my son borrowed my cell phone and changed the ringtone. It went off in the middle of a meeting. It took me an embarassingly long time to figure out that it was mine AND I didn’t know how to change it back. Sigh!

  2. Hilarious Susan! Don’t worry, you are not alone in Land of the (Gizmo)Lost.
