Does Tonks look a tad bit disgruntled here? Yes? That's because she is. I kind of am, too.
Last week I mentioned having some technical difficulties. My WiFi was acting like it didn't know what the 21st century was, and then by the end of the week my scanner was also having trouble working. I indicated that over the weekend I planned on sorting all of that out, and let's just say I didn't fully succeed at that. The WiFi is actually mostly improved now. Mostly. But as for the scanner, which I use to scan and thereby share my art, it's still acting up. Mind you, this scanner is a relatively cheap one that I bought nearly 10 years ago. It's had its fair share of issues over the years, and I'm honestly surprised it's even lasted this long.
Anyway. I've been messing with the scanner for days and thought it was back to its weird but functioning self. As of last night, though, it is definitely not back to its functioning self. I was hoping a good night sleep might sort it out, but it's still not working this morning, so that hope is dashed. Even worse, I didn't get today's A to Z Challenge doodle scanned before I realized that the scanner is really just not okay. After much frustration with the scanner, which was futile and led me nowhere, I'm just going to have to share a different doodle today. Whether my far more tech savvy sister can fix my scanner or whether I go out and buy a new one today, our A to Z Challenge doodles will resume tomorrow, when I'll share the doodles for both today's and tomorrow's respective letters.
Since we always share a doodle of some sort, today's unintended flashback doodle stars angel Rosie and a computer. It seemed fitting, given our technical difficulties.
This doodle is actually from the 2019 A to Z Challenge. It looks nothing like the one that's supposed to be shared today, but you'll see that for yourself tomorrow.
Trivia of the Day
Many cats love computers. They love laptops. They love lying our your keyboard when you're trying to use it. Is this the case for you and your kitty? If so, can you guess why your cat is so keen on snoozing on your laptop? There are two very possible reasons, and you can probably guess at least one or both of them. One reason is that computers can get warm when powered up and running, and cats love warmth, so in their minds this warm computer is a great place to snooze. Another very possible reason that cats steal laptops from humans is to get attention. If the computer has your attention and your cat wants your attention instead, then kitty simply must get between you and the computer. A cat's gotta do what a cat's gotta do!
