Overcoming Bloglessness

Sassy Assed Computer


Daily Prompt Soulful Machines. Machines, appliances, and gadgets sometimes feel like they have their own personalities — from quirky cars to dignified food processors. What’s the most “human” machine you own?

It’s the damn computer. I don’t usually think of any machines as human, but if I must choose one for Daily Prompt purposes, it’s the damn computer.

Computer is the only machine that gives me grief. It’s the only machine I curse at; the only one that sasses me back. I love it and I hate it. It brings me joy and it pisses me off.

It’s stubborn and moody and passive aggressive. But I keep coming back.

I can’t quit you, Computer!

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. Shhhhhhh! Not so loud, it’s listening….

  2. I don’t know what this says about my relationship with computers, but when it came to writing this prompt, I didn’t even consider it as a candidate “machine” or appliance… a bit scary, that.

    Had a big chuckle at “computie-wootie.” 😀
