Breaking The Chain ( or My Husband Calls Himself a Computer Widow)

Wednesday, October 03, 2007

Since I've joined SparkPeople a few weeks ago, Ive noticed this strange comment while visiting peoples Spark Page(s). I thought "That's odd." Then I started seeing it more and more."THIS IS A TOAST.... " it starts . It goes on to say " You've been hit." Then one day I was hit, and again the next day by Sparkmail. It instructed me to send the messege to 10 more or I'd be cursed to 10 years of ugliness.
I began to PANIC. How am I going to type all this stuff out 10 times and still have time to exercise, shower, eat etc.? Will someone be offended if I don't do it? Can I risk 10 more years of ugliness? Will it ever end?
Did I mention that I flunked typing back in H.S. because I type like a turtle?Or that my wonderful husband allready calls himself a computer widow since I joined SP? Or that I stress easily and had to quit my last job due to stress? To make matters worse, this is the second time I had to type out this blog because I accidentallly closed the blog when I tried to move the page up so I could reach the Post Blog Entry button.
Enough! I found a solution. And that silent '60s rebel in me says "Yeah, break the chain."

THIS IS A TOAST TO ALL OF YOU...YOU'RE ALL FABULOUS....

So, carry on if you like, but I have to exercise, shower, eat etc. It's almost time for my hubby to get home. By the way, I'm writing this tongue in cheek, so PLEASE don't anyone be offended.

    Hehe, I don't send those on, it just plugs up the internet. Now do you suppose that is why it is hard for me to stick to this weight loss thing?

Keep on breaking the chain.

    Those chains can be so very annoying. I am an IT tech monkey and I see what a waste of space this is on our servers...lol. And no, you wont be cursed for not sending it on. You will actually be more appreciated by your peers, your friends, family and the IT Staff if you just break the chain. So on behalf of all IT Administrators, I thank you for breaking the chain.
