In case you haven’t noticed I haven’t posted anything in a bit, and that’s because I’ve decided to change things up here at waffletude. An update. It will become New and Improved.
But is it really? Is new – er always an improvement? Does the old adage, “If it’s not broke don’t fix it?” even apply anymore? It seems like were always fixing, touching, doing, updating whether it needs it or not. I think there is a down side to updates.
It shouldn’t surprise you that I don’t update anything, so this idea seems foreign to me. If you look at my phone right now there are 20 requests for various updates that I will never fulfill.
That said, I’m feeling anxious because I’m behind on my updates. My computer needs an update, my phone needs an update, my watch needs an update. All this updating makes me want to upchuck. We should take a lesson from COKE, stop trying to change perfection.
I find that simply changing fonts and background colors only confuses me. Just when I figured out how to use the current version of an app there is an update to throw me right out of my comfort zone. Busy Work.
But in this case an update is warranted, even though I waffled with the idea for a while. A fresh coat of paint will do it some good.
Recently I was forced to update my online bank account. Now I have “Erica.” She pops up every time I simply want to check my balance.
“Hi Leslie. Want to chat?”
“Not a good time to talk about your money?”
“Okay Leslie let’s talk another time.”
“No? Are you sure?”
Erica is becoming “that friend.” The one that you don’t want to be rude to and tell her you don’t want to be friends with her any more, so you hide in your car while she’s walking by. I need to break up with Erica, but I’m afraid she won’t let me back into my bank account.
Lest we forget:
“HAL open the pod bay doors please!”
“I’m sorry Dave I’m afraid I can’t do that…”
Don’t worry I won’t be popping up to chat! Honestly, this update really is to make my life easier not yours.
So, in the future there won’t be any pictures, too much work for me and come to find out I can get in trouble for using copyrighted materials without asking or paying for them. Crazy Talk. It will be shorter, again too much work for me to write all that other stuff. This way I can post more often. It can be more casual not a precious work of literature… well at least it is to me. Hopefully not just lipstick on a pig!
Sit back and relax here comes the Grand Re-Opening…really? How grand is a re-opening? Again new fonts and paint?
Coming Soon! Really? Soon? How soon? Well as soon as I can get to it.
One thing is constant…
