More madness

There are Gremlins in my world.

Everyone remember these cute little guys?  I was in college when the movie came out.  I thought it was pretty funny.  Of course, that was before they got wet.  Remember that part?

They first appeared in my car.  I was off picking one of the college students up when the turn signal decided it didn't need to make any sound.  That was weird, but short lived.  When I shut the car off and turned it back on a little bit later, all was normal.  Then, on the drive home it changed radio stations all on its own. The next day it honked at me when I walked by.  I'm thinking my car is male and it was whistling at me.  Ha.  Hardly.  But, still.... the keys were nicely placed in my jacket pocket and nothing was bumping them enough to push a button.  So odd...and my car is pretty new.

The latest gremlins have infected my phone.  This morning the alarm went off at 8AM.  Late enough to not be a problem.  But why?  The time I wanted an alarm, I could figure out how to set it.  Apparently, it's so easy I can do it without trying.  Smart phone, my a$$.  Sorry.

Don't you just hate it when things get a mind of their own?  I still remember when the kids got one.  Usually around 3.  They start having very strong opinions about things.  I always wondered who gave it to them.  They certainly didn't ask me if it was okay first.



  1. My own person gremlin is my garage door that goes up and down by itself. We've never figured it out, but one year we came back from vacation and it was up... And hearing it go up in the middle of the night when you're home alone??? Just about gives me a heart attack every time!

  2. Hi

    I just joined your blog as a follower.

    Your post made me smile! I hate it when things go wrong or happen and you don't know why.

    I love your Midnight Watch finish. I have that one in my stash to stitch.
