So while my monitor was playing dead (again)...

So while my monitor was playing dead (again)...

...this was what I did:

Yup! I painted my computer glasses' frames with nail polish. This is something I've been meaning to do for some time. Why? Well, I have eczema on my face and there are curves of it on each side of my nose which look suspiciously like the shape and position of where said glasses rest on my face. My doctor said a while back that if the coating was coming off the frames this could aggravate the condition so I thought, as I’m too mean until I can get some new ones I'll try this and see if it helps. Well, I go back to see the eye specialist at the beginning of June, so I really don't want to be forking out the multi-coloured papers before I find out whether she will recommend another operation, in which case my sight might change again and I'll have to buy new ones anyway! Perfect logic, eh?!

Why I haven't beaten Pinky up for torturing my computer:

(Lots of highly technical terms (::ahem...::) are used in the following so please bear with me.)

A few days before he did so, he ca
me over with these:

and a new wireless router for me:

Thus getting rid of the danger of tripping over this yellow cable when using my laptop in the livingroom:

(Please ignore the tattiness and general horribledeness of the carpet, particularly where it is all frayed where it meets the wall ::sigh...::).

The little gizmo in the bottom USB port is what does the cordless mouse:

It's a fantabulous mousie and I love it to pieces!

Thank you Pinky!

So all-in-all I'm a happy little Black Cat and I and my desktop computer forgive you for torturing him Pinky. Yay!

I hope efurrbody is having a super dooper weekend:) xxx

Hello Black Cat!!

You're person is very wise to come up with a quick fix for the old eyeglasses. No need to dish out money unless you have all the facts. My woman got bored with one of her reading glasses and painted the rim with acrylic paint. Yes she did.

I hope you had a great weekend. Keeping my paws crossed for more sunshine!

I am glad that your computer is fixed. I think your glasses will look snazzy and I hope that that fixes the problem!

I loves your mousie!!! Can I chase your mousie? Mine Mummy has got a mousie with a tail which attaches to the compooooter and it's no fun chasing that mousie because it can never move far!

Both MB & MM have a problem with their skin when the lacquer wears off their glasses. MM has just got plastic frames to fix this and MB is getting some too.

Glad your pewtie is all fixed up.

Purrs, Sukie X

Hooray for a wireless mouse and wireless router! We use those things, too. You are very creative to put nail polish on your glasses. I hope it helps!

I am afraid you gave my maid a very bad idea.... now she will paint all her glasses with nail polish.... not because she has eczema but because she likes weird (and many) colors.....and I then have to look at it....
P.S. Don't forget to post you picture at our reception blog! I know you are human but you accepted the dress up challenge - so maybe you are up for this one too...
