Why does my computer freeze up when I am getting email? I can be in the middle of something important, and if email is coming through - the whole thing STOPS until the email beeps.


Why does it take 3 times as long to pop popcorn in my microwave as it used to? Is it a problem with the popcorn or the microwave?


Why don't all the bees leave my house, now that we have blocked their preferred entrance?


Why have my cats changed the areas of the house in which they spend the most time? Ever since Storm had to go to the vet 2 weeks ago, she has stayed in the hallway between my den and my guest bathroom. It is nowhere near her food or the litter pan. Eclipse now sleeps nearly 24/7 atop the bridal consultation table in my office, which makes mr. kenju mad, since he had appropriated it for himself.


Why does my dental floss, when I pull it out of the container, sound like Chewbacca in the first Star Wars?


Why does it feel like fleas are biting me even when they're not?

Wait: Maybe the fleas ARE biting you. Could happen.....

Oh my, so many questions, so little time. I read somewhere that you're attending your 50th high school class reunion. Mine is next year, although I'm goint with one of my friends to her
50th, in October.

Have a good time.

I think computers know they are annoying you.

I'd vote for the popcorn.

It's home to them Judy...they like it there.

Cats tell each other secrets not us.

Probably because it is coated.

Dry skin.

These crack me up. Especially the dental floss one. My chair squeeks and sounds like it's talking saying "I don't want to."

Farrago said...

Check the dental floss container. Is it the Star Wars, "Use The Floss" package?

At least it's not the "Blazing Saddles" dental floss. When you pull that out you get the sound effects from the scene where they're sitting around the campfire all letting off bean far... hey, gotta go!

srp said...

The pipe in my brother's bathroom squeals after you turn the shower off... almost always.... is this a bad thing?

About the bees.... could the entrance also be the exit?

Inanna said...

Maybe the bees still "smell" their home??

Cats, bees, computers and husbands all have the same irritation gene.

I dunno, I think I'd have to go with the microwave, unless it is only the popcorn you're having trouble with.

Dental floss confuses me.

I'm supposed to be off this weekend. Do you still have my number?

Grannymar said...

Have picture of Mr Kenju reclining on consultation table! *runs out of room*

Am I the only person in the world who never made popcorn?

bobbie said...

I think Rosemary hit all of them right on the head.

Laura said...

Well Judy, if you're hearing chewbacca in the dental floss and imagining fleas on your legs, then maybe it's time for a checkup? ;) LOL.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

LOL, LOL....ALL Good questions, Judy, and I have no answers....! It is truly a mystery why the Bees would still be there...!

My 60th High School reunion will be this coming June. Scary, isn't it? Hope you enjoy the weekend Judy....!

PI said...

I'm sure I remember you saying there were fleas. Hoss could be right - he often is.

My husband and I went to his High School reunion recently.(63 years)

Anyway, he kept staring at this drunken lady swigging her drinks as she sat alone at a nearby table.

I asked him,"Do you know her?"

"Yes, he said, " She's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up,those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since."

"My God, I Said, " Who would think a person would go on celebrating that long.?"

Shelly said...

That flea biting thing...I swear bugs are biting me and then I look and see nothing, glad I'm not the only one!

Bob-kat said...

That's an awful lot of questions!

The dental floss one made me smile - "May the Floss be with you!" LoL!

JeanMac said...

Life tosses a lot of whys!

Nepharia said...

re computer email: archive your email -- it might fix the problem. (You can also set it to archive once a month to avoid this in the future as well).

Hope you get answers to the rest of life's unanswered questions :D

Heck if I know? I still am trying to figure out what day it is!
