In my last post I talked about how picky I am with the background images I choose for my computer because my husband teases me about them if they’re fangirl related. You think I’d be used to the teasing by now- when I was an early teen, my favorite band was Def Leppard. My mother and brother thought it was great fun to sing the hit song “Love Bites” in an Elmer Fudd voice outside my bedroom door, in the background when I was talking on the telephone, when they dropped me off at friend’s houses… It got old real fast.
This past weekend I hooked my laptop up to the flatscreen tv so that my husband and I could watch The Crucible. Unbeknownst to us, our son was downloading an update to one of his games, slowing down the internet connection so that it kept buffering every two minutes.
He only had 20 minutes left to go, so my husband was switching it back to regular tv while we waited…and my computer desktop image showed up right there in his face. He jumped like he’d seen something really offensive and then whined, “ah, now he’s there too?!”
I told him that he could put an actress on his computer screen so that we’d be even. better yet, he could start a blog about her and I could help him! My mind went blank on actresses to suggest though. Jennifer Lawrence would be fun but he’s already got one clown to deal with, he doesn’t need two.
He suggested Sandra Bullock, who he despises. umm. you’re supposed to pick someone you like.
