#FOWC Revenge.

#FOWC Revenge.

I have absolutely no idea what I am doing with this post today, except that I am attempting to take part in Fandango’s One Word Challenge, hence the rather peculiar #FOWC at the beginning of the post.

Further to my post yesterday I am delighted to have been contacted by other bloggers who seem to be just as annoyed as I am with the stupidity of computers, so thank you for that, I am not alone.

To take part in today’s challenge I have to create a pingback and have to attach the #FOWC, although I have no idea why I am doing either but have received instructions and am following them to the best of my feeble abilities.

I was rather hoping that should I complete this task it would be my revenge on the stupid computer as it would require the thing to be rather clever to follow the instructions and fulfill the task, although it would in fact be me who had been the clever one as I was instructing the computer how to do it.

On the other hand should I make a complete pigs ear of the thing it would of course be yet again the computers revenge on me.

Well, I have fulfilled my part of the challenge in that I have written a post using the one word revenge all I have to do now is highlight the text and click Insert/edit on the toolbar and enter the URL where I want the text to link to, simple. The only slight problem is I have never seen a toolbar on this site nor have I ever clicked on it, never mind I’m going to give it a go, wish me luck!

Well, this is my third go at making this link thing work and I am fairly certain it’s not doing what it was supposed to do, although it does have a link in the #FOWC Revenge text at the top of this page but I have no idea if it’s pinging, so as usual the stupid computer has its revenge on me.

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.

  1. I can’t help chuckling at this. I think some computers have personalities. Or they’re haunted. My isn’t vengeful, but she’s temperamental, overly dramatic, and when she gets pouty, she drives me to drink. Fun post. 😀
