......When The Computer Goes Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Age Rating: 7 +
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Today's topic for discusion:computers and why I havn't
written in a while.
Computers are wonderful, I must agree, but they are
not that wonderful when you get a virus.
Unfortunately, I got a virus, let me tell you what
It was a jolly good day and I had just finished all of
my homework so I thought that I could go on the
internet and have some fun. I turned on my computer
and just as it was starting up, a blue screen
appeared! The blue screen appeared for only 2 seconds
and then my computer re-started. The computer kept on
re-starting over and over again, which got me
frustrated. I had no choice, because it was going on
for at least an hour, but to turn it off. I tried
turning on my computer but the same blue screen
continued appearing. One day, I turned on the computer
and it started going peep-peep-peep-peep. When the
peep-ing stopped it made a short noise that went
brrrrr, and just shut off. About a week later my
father brought the computer to my cousin, who is a
computer whiz, so he could fix it. It took my cousin
about 3 weeks to fix it. When I got my baby back I
found out that the Internet needed to be to re-
installed, and better yet the modem was not working.
By the time my family, my cousin, and I had everything
ready, it was yesterday. My cousin installed the
internet and I asked lots of questions. So here I am
today, writing my explanation as to why I did'nt write
in my column. i hope you will find a space in your
heart to forgive me.
As always, I want to tell you a good book.
Title: Sixth Grade Secrets
Author: Lois Sachar
My Comments: This is a really good book and you don't
have to be in 6th grade to read it. Laura Sibbie is
the main character and she forms a club with her two
best friends, Tiffany and Allison. She names the
club "Pig City" after the hat that she wears. Soon,
they ask other kids to join. Messages start appearing
on the board about pigs and no one knows who does it.
Mr. Doyle, the teacher, suspects that it might be
Laura. In a while, Laura's club isn't the only club
around because a boy named Gabriel forms a new club,
Monkey Town. These two clubs don't like each other
that much. Soon enough, the war begins! There are all
kinds of things done between the two clubs. Like all
of Sachar's books, this one is also good.
See ya' later!
