List Poem: One day in the life of a Blogger…

A mirror on a wall in Rovereto...captioned "How do you see yourself?"

A mirror on a wall in Rovereto…captioned “How do you see yourself?”

Got up this morning at 6 and wrote a little poem.

Not satisfied with this, I wrote then yet another…

And I had a bunch of photos I took the day before,

So I made myself a photo blog…and published it alors!

I read my mail and read the reader:

Commenting now and then…meow.

I got my clothes on and ate some breakfast with hubby…

Then, decided to do some shopping…!

Went out in my little red car and bought an SDD,

For my dear Bastet, she’ll feel liberated, I’d say!

Then,  rode around in the rain for a while…

And went meandering inside some shops just for a lark…

Finally I took myself home to do my daily chores.

I fixed some dinner (chicken curry with rice)

And did a little cleaning (blearch…but t’was needed)

Then opened up great Sekhmet to have a look inside.

My hubby did some cleaning there…removed a month of dust!

Then removed an old modem that for years I’d never  touched.

We put the new hard disk inside…

Alas! Much to my chagrin!

XP wouldn’t read it except externally via usb!

Spent a few hours on forums to resolve the problem..

But ahimeh!…no answers were forthcoming  (oh damn!)…

So, I swore I’d try  tomorrow…

Had dinner, the curry with wine followed up with coffee.

At last at 8, I sat down in my Ikea easy chair…

There to open Bastet…and read a blog or two.

Once finished I began to read Wodehouse,

To see what Jeeves would do…

At 1 I woke up with a start! …and finally went to bed.

(Note: Sekhmet and Bastet are the names I’ve given my computers…by the way if there are any nerdy types reading this today…any suggestions on how to get XP to read my second sata HDD?)

  1. Comment, apology, and question: Incredibly full day — makes me feel like I didn’t do a thing yesterday. Sorry, but I have no idea about the sata HDD. And what is an SDD?


    • Couldn’t get mine to work…so I put it into a USB external reader, connecting it full time onto the computer and am saving my data there…it would have been better if I could have figured out how to make my darn operating system accept the Hard Disk Drive, the old ATA disk drives were so much easier to install! But this is better than nothing.
      SDD is an acronym and it means Solid State Disk…it’s those ickle bitty things you put into your digital cameras, cel phones and what makes flash drives jive etc. Because there are no moveable parts, they seem to be on the way to replacing H.D.D.s but some say they are prone to decay over a period of time, so data loss might become an even bigger problem in the future, worse than with the old fashioned HDD and at the moment their pretty slow…still way better than the old floppy disks…and cds have proven not to be always as reliable as everyone thought they would be..
