...................and they all lived happily ever after.
OK, so the blogs all typed and I just need to get the spell checker up and running.
Now whats it going to be today? will I be writing in English and checked in American, or writing in American and checked in English?
Well with this computer it's any ones guess, in fact I swear since peep spilt the noodles on the keyboard we've been getting some Chinese corrections too.
OK, here goes....
Colour is still colour with a red line under it, which means that is the wrong spelling for US but right for UK. But, if I click the spell checker it is shown as correct. Clearly there is some sort of international detente needed here. Hmm, maybe we should just amalgamate the two languages and call it Amelish, or Englican. In fact why not amalgamate them and the two countries could just be called U.
We'd have to also change some of the words, average out the gaps between the letters. Maybe instead of using S's and Z's we could use V's or W's!
Anyways, punctuation is a curse and a blessing, for sure. Fail to put a comma in place and two worlds such as Mars, and Jupiter, can literally collide and become one. Take this comma over here....
Oooh, what's this, a funny little symbol on my computer screen. Wonder where that came from, I don't recall typing it. Sort of a cross between a star and asterisk.... um.... cant actually recall seeing anything on the keyboard like that, nope nothing there.
OK, lets have another look on screen.....
Eeek! Hang on, wheres it gone! it was just after....
Ah ha, there it is just down the page, I'm sure I didn't move it there. I can't have rogue punctuation, can you think of the chaos. Mouses!
OK, so how do I get that there asterisk thing to disappear? Ah, just type delete and.... Oooh I say, its moving up the screen on it's own. Mouses!
Right if that's its game I'll get my quick draw laser mouse and we'll see who's the the fastest....
****** Some time later and much frantic clicking! ******
OK, I admit defeat. Never have I been defeated by anything, or anything so small! OK I shall just clarify that, never have I been defeated by anything that I haven't wanted to be defeated by, there is a big difference of course, as all us cats know. purrs
OK little asterisk thing, I give up, what are you and what do you want?
You're not a virus thing are you? Sent to cause mischief and mayhem on my blog, not that I need any extra help with that as I do have a peep to for any such disasters. purrs
Not the talkative sort are you, well just be warned, I shall switch this here computer off and delete you once and for all, and don't think I won't. I may not have opposable thumbs, but I know a peep who has and knows where the delete key is!
Now what, little asterisk thing, do you say to that!
HA! Thats got you on the run, I knew it would, right off the screen in fact and......EEEEEK! right off the screen and floating towards my bookshelf! Im being invaded by punctuation. Mouses!
Call the FBI, call the white House, call the X Files, I'm being invaded by...... Hang on a moment, I can see some string attached to that there asterisk... in fact I can see a web attached to the string attached to..... A SPIDER!
Ahem, not one to complain, being a Princess and all, no ma'am, but I really do think I need to have words with the cleaners.
Now as to this little spider, it's way too small for a meal, and I don't think it is a worthy adversary for me just yet, I mean, how could I NOT win? purrs
Note from the Editor: Please note that no spiders where harmed in the making of this blog, though the cleaner has since been fired, and the laser mouse given early retirement, on health grounds! The spider, whose name incidentally, was Asterix, is currently taking time out to feature in a mini movie production of the Incredible Shrinking Peep!
