MIGHT AS WELL FACE IT YOU’RE ADDICTED TO ZUCK

Remember the other day when everybody lost their shit because you couldn’t load pics/memes to Facebook and Instagram?

Someone in one of the groups I’m in on Facebook asked what we did when Facebook and Instagram were both down.
Apparently, “call the crisis center hotlines” was not the answer they were looking for.

What the actual hell, people? We didn’t have a rolling blackout across the universe.
It’s social media, not life or death.
Well, maybe not all of them Forest…
What did you guys think of the Facebook/Instagram glitch?
Did it mess up your mojo? Steal your social media vibe??
Seriously, I could not believe how many people were freaking out over this.
Guess who wasn’t freaking out? Us old school bloggers that’s who!
Our blogs were up and running WITH pictures! Ha!
Fingers, eyes, and toes all crossed that Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t buy Google and WordPress or any other blogging platform!

Happy Monday everyone!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be Well.

FREE TRIAL MONTH PART 2

Apparently, my “free trial month” is now a month and a half.
Geez, Louise. I’ve seriously got to get it together.
I’ve totally lost mine.
For someone who doesn’t lead a particularly busy life, I sure am busy!
I’ve also had computer issues and have been constantly battling the cold/flu season out here. Fortunately, still no flu but I have had the sniffles and that may just be some kind of mental trigger that happens when I’m out n’ about and inconsiderate assholes people cough/sneeze in public and DON’T COVER!
(Huge pet peeve. Read this post.)
The good news? As I said, no flu. I’m feeling much better than I was a couple of days ago. I’m still tired and achy but I’m getting better.
The BEST news? My son and daughter-in-law bought me a new computer for Valentine’s Day! So unexpected… They’re just great kids and I love them so much and the computer is pretty cool too.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day, Happy, Happy to all of you!
If you celebrate it, I hope you’re having fun. If you don’t, hey, chocolate goes on sale tomorrow!
Also, here’s a pic of a random Valentine’s couple.
Feel the loooove! Not just today but always!
MIMI’S QUOTE FOR THE DAY
It really does!
PS – I gave up Facebook and Instagram for Lent.
Seriously, it’s incredibly difficult to go off track when you’re promising God.
Also, to those who part take and celebrate, have a blessed season of Lent.

THINGS I WISH MY PHONE WOULD STOP DOING

Scaring the shit out of me! Let’s just start with that one because that one, is allll encompassing!

UPDATES AND REBOOTS – Is there any reason why this has to happen always, with.out.fail, in the middle of the flippin’ night???
– Suddenly, WITHOUT WARNING, outta’ the corner of my eye I see those swirling bright lights of my phone and instantly my heart starts racing and my ass tightens up and all I can think about is abduction, anal probes and death because my entire body has just vapor locked!

INVOLUNTARY RESETS, DOWNLOADS AND APPS THAT YOU CAN’T DELETE – It’s like a constant “fuck you” from my phone.
– I set my clock to mountain time, my phone says, “Fuck you, I’m a New Yorker, I’m setting it to eastern time.” Nothing against New Yorkers but if I set my alarm for 6am because I have an appointment at 8am, I’d really like for it to go off at 6am and NOT 8am, the actual time of my appointment.
– I delete apps and my phone says, “Fuck you, I’m downloading ‘Flipboard’ – again – ‘Flipboard’ is cool and I’m keeping ‘Jigsaw Puzzles’ too because maybe one day I’m gonna’ wanna’ put together a 500 piece puzzle on a 5 INCH screen.”
– And what’s with these apps that you can’t delete??? You can disable them but you can’t delete them, especially the “S” apps. ‘S Health,’ ‘S Translator,’ ‘S Memo..’
I don’t use any of these, and yet my phone says, “Fuck you, they’re staying right where they are, running in the background slowing the rest of your shit down, and don’t even think about resetting or deleting them because I’ll put ’em right back on, so you just hang tight, jump on ‘Twitter’ and bitch about me there in 140 characters or less.”
And speaking of Twitter…

TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM NOTIFICATIONS – *See above involuntary resets. –
First of all, I’d like to thank everybody who’s following even though I’m pretty sure I don’t know 20 people personally who want to follow my random food, toenail, and basketball hoop pics on Instagram, but apparently 200 people that I don’t know personally, do, so yeah, thanks for following… Twitter is very much the same, and again, thanks for following but the notifications are driving me nutso.
I’ve made every attempt humanly possible to STOP THE NOTIFICATIONS and it’s  like Stephen King’s ‘Pet Cemetary.’ “They always come back..”
I’ve put my phone on vibrate to stop the once cool and now annoying ‘Law & Order’ sound notifications and now I deal with the incessant buzzing, all.night.long, which, I’m not gonna’ lie, wouldn’t be a bad thing if it were coming from me, but it’s not, it’s my flippin’ phone!
Maybe the reboot is the climax after all of the buzzing, who knows.
Side note – It’s a sad day when your phone is getting off more than you are. Just sayin’.

AMBER ALERTS – Okay, okay.. Get off me, I’m not a moron, I know the importance of the Amber Alerts, and honestly, I don’t mind them – much – BUT, I didn’t sign up for them and when I’m driving down the road in the middle of rush hour traffic with some jackhole darting in and out of lanes like he’s Mario Andretti at the Indy 500, I really don’t need to be scared shitless when I hear what used to be the sound of “the emergency broadcast system” back in the day when you actually had to get up and turn the channel on your t.v.

For those of you too young to remember that awesome sound, this is it…
Yeah, not the random sound you want to hear during rush hour…

Dear Dumbass Smart Phone,
Maybe I’ll pay your bill this month, maybe I won’t. Maybe I’ll pay late and leave ya’ hangin’ on life support for a 6 day grace period, how ’bout that? Ya’ know if I wasn’t so attached, addicted and obsessed with you, trust me, you’d be under my tires right now…
Fuck me dumbass smart phone? No, fuck you.
Sincerely,
I own YOU!

Ah, who am I kidding?
