Appliances Have Feelings Too

Plotnik keeps wanting to run this gorgeous photo of his gorgeous daughter. It has nothing to do with anything that follows.

One of the philosopical tenets of Plotnikkism is that household appliances have feelings too. When one breaks down, the others like to break down too. It's a solidarity kind of thing.

First it was Ducknik's new computer, which with all that processing power is about as fast as a Kaypro 1. Something's wrong. The dishwasher heard about it, and pooped out in the middle of a cycle, but before it went South it sent a message to the printer, which then refused to have anything to do with any of the house computers until some yet-to-be determined point in the future.

Plotnik's phone heard about it, and decided to lose its charge even though Plottie had had it plugged in the previous night. The DVR was weird too -- when Plotnik got home from TIAPOS the other night he turned on the Laker game that he had saved to watch later -- but the DVR showed the Lakers losing to the Nuggets. The electronics are all screwed up in this house.

The Warriors have a player who elbowed another player in the mouth during the previous game. The player on the receiving end lost two teeth, and the Warrior player, David Lee, has had to have surgery to clean out an infection in that arm, which he presumably got from the other player's teeth.

And then there's "Watch your husband, watch your wife," which Plotnik keeps meaning to tell you all about. Tomorrow.

Who needs an excuse to post a pix of a beautiful girl? And in our house, that appliance rebellion is called a CUB: complete utility breakdown. It's a conspiracy thing, I think.
