Keep Calm and Compute #1LinerWeds

I did a book review yesterday for a long-time pal’s blog book tour. Rana DiOrio and I were in Dani Greer’s Blog Book Tour workshop together, which is also where I met Holly Jahangiri (the real one on whom my fictional one is based). A lot of us are still in some degree of contact, which shows you how great the workshop was and what a wonderful Drill Sergeant Dani was (and is, although she no longer does the workshop).

ANYWAY, on the day I hosted my friend’s book, MY SITE WAS DOWN FOR THREE HOURS. I still don’t know why. Maybe a DOS attack, of which I have a couple a year.

ANYWAY AGAIN, I was tempted to be seriously upset. Then I remembered a tagline from the old BBS days (yes, I’m old).

Calm down; it’s all just ones and zeroes.

If you don’t know what that means, look up binary. No, I neither write it nor read it. Do I look like Sheldon Cooper to you?

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s weekly blog hop, One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner or just like them, follow the link.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: A business is shut down for three hours.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Remember: There are only 10 kinds of people – those who understand binary and those who don’t.

    The video reminded me that this is the last season for TBBT. It also reminded me why I’m happy tis is the last season for TBBT.

      I’ve only watched a couple of episodes, but I liked them. I would have watched it with Mom, but she didn’t like it. Not a geek, my mom. I don’t know where I get it.

    Dan’s joke. A good one. I like TBBT and have enjoyed it for years, but it’s time for it to make way for a new sitcom. Sheldon was funny, but now he’s not.

      Is he being written differently, acted differently, or just wearing out his welcome?
