Those reports of a brilliant meteorite that was seen across three provinces last night will prove to be false, mark my words.
Because I know what it really was. It was my computer.
The blue light on the front of the tower started flashing rapidly last night and since we can no longer turn the computer off on account of the button being broken, I kept waking up from the mad strobe light effects that were lighting up the entire second floor of the house. I'm pretty certain they could see it from Winnipeg.
Today the computer store guru told me that there must have been some major action going on in the drive last night, so I did a big virus scan and came up with one itty-bitty cookie fragment, rated low risk. But getting rid of it made the flashing stop. Does this make any sense?
I'm taking the computer into the shop on Monday and they are going to remove the power button altogether and that will allow us to turn the computer back on with the point of a pencil.
The all-night disco is over, baby. You can take your bots and go home.
I haven't played along with Just A Cool Cat's Friday Random Ten for eons, so it's time to get random. Head over to his place and lay your list down on him; show a brah some love.
