Shared things...

Bloggyland (the blogosphere) can be a delightful and wondrous place. You can meet people from all over, nice people that have similar interests,passions,sicknesses (Pyrexia,Buttonosis,Lampalia, Kitchenwaris etc...). People who lived similar things and people who went to the same places and took the same pictures...

Yesterday as I was doing my VTT (Vintage Thingie Thursday) social, I stopped by Maureen's blog The Green Suitcase (that you can read HERE) and lo and behold I found out we shared more than a love of vintage....

We shared a sick computer experience. Mine didn't have to do with marinara sauce or wine...but my first computer was pre-owned...and had a long and productive life prior to my owning it...One day I fried nearly everything! It was too full and poorly ventilated and after a couple of days at the doctor it came back but a shadow of itself! I had no sound and all my usb ports were fried, so I could not download pics or charge my ipod :(. I could not print...the only ting I could do was go on the internet and very slowly!

We also share this....

   

Mine is the old version before he became Le Geant Antiques. He was know as: Le gars avec un gros hotdog (the guy with a big hotdog). This was taken in 2006 and I must apologize about the quality. I had to copy the image from Flickr because I lost a lot of pictures as well in the great computer burnout of 2009.

So this guy stands by the side of the road with is big coca-cola and hot dog and what that means is that the border is getting nearer and that great fun will be had in the States! Beach,fried clams and Pyrex!

Have a great Friday everybody and for my fellow Canadians if you can tear yourself from the Olympics...Be sure to watch Guy Fiery on Triple D- Diners,Drive-ins and Dives!

Hilarious....Pyrexia! I have it and the only cure is to 'BuyTwoMore' and call the Pyrex Dealer the next day....they may have more.

Cured my PuterAlexia with a new drug...HPWin7. I'm feeling soooo much better.

Okay I never heard of lampaila - but I did have to stop after buying the third one because my family said, ANOTHER lamp? And I realized yeah, another one. And thought, hmmmm...problem. So technically Im not afflicted

You're so right - when you spot that hot dog man, you know you're getting close.

Oh my....I have to admit, I have a lamp addiction. And pillows. And rugs. Can't help myself.
