ElBoB – Not exactly my ASUS …….

As you well know,  if you’ve been following the “Trials & Tribulations of Me”; (And if you haven’t; why haven’t you ❓  rivaled in history, only by The Great Tea Trolley Disaster of ’67; sadly, my ASUS, is no more. 

Had you have read the comments on the previous post, which detailed the disaster, you’d have noticed that one of the correspondents was getting a wee bit sooky  about the naming of the new machine, without due recognition which he felt was warranted/merited.

So to set matters straight, I hereby certify & confirm, that the name “ElBoB” is a result of the genius of Disperser, known, and beloved, by all his many followers as disperser, with a small ‘d’! 😈

  1. Sooky?

    I believe you might have misinterpreted my comment. Actually, I know you are, but that’s nothing new — people hear (read) what they want to read and there’s no swaying them from it.

    I would clarify my so-called complaint but given your recalcitrant attitude toward perfectly logical explanations, I don’t think it would do any good.

    Besides, I’m used to the constant malignment of my good name and impugnment of my character and deem it not worth my time setting the record straight.

    As for ElBob, that is a very nice setup. I can’t see how the ASUS would hold a candle to it, but then — as I mentioned before — computers can’t hold candles.

    I’m also glad to see what appears to be a dictionary at hand. Hopefully, it’s a proper American English dictionary and not some pretentious (Oxford) knockoff. Of course, it could be something else that ends in “…ARY.”

    I also note a curious choice for the mouse pad. That does not look like healthy food. And, finally, I see you’re celebrating the cultural plundering of Egyptian treasures and symbols by the Brittish. Again, nice.

    1. There is, as is usual an explanation for everything. O_o o_O

      The mouse pad a present from Ruby, how can I not use it? 🙂

      The Egyptian thing was given to me 10-15 years ago, by my sons then girlfriend, Laura, who was an archeology student, at Sydney Uni, she went on a ‘dig’ in Egypt, and brought it back, a gift for me. 👿

      It is indeed my Oxford dictionary, always to hand. Had you have put your Spam sandwich down and looked harder, you might have noticed the letter ‘D’ above the “…ARY.”, which you so cleverly pointed out. 😈 🐻 :

      Sooky! http://www.yourdictionary.com/sooky whatever suits 😈 prettywell all of it …………………..


    2. 1) That’s cute; you think I didn’t notice the bit of “r” and the “d”.

      2) I do know what sooky mean . . . I had a brilliant example when a certain guy I know complained incessantly about an imagined wrong; something about a name.

      1. Well you do get a bit selective at times,


  2. I love that you’ve named your computer. Mine only has names when it misbehaves … and then it has names I can’t repeat here.

    1. Well I’m glad you didn’t repeat the names on these prudish pages, Rules are rules, even for old editors 😈 😀 O_o o_O 🙄 :/


  3. Oh, Lord BofB 🐻 !!! Your new computer is handsome! And has a great name!

    I never named my computer, which is interesting because I do give names to other objects, things, etc. !

    I’ve always believed computers are male. Here are just a few reasons why…
    1. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
    2. They have a lot of data but can still be clueless.
    3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but sometimes they are the problem.
    4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that, if you had waited a little longer you could have had a better model.
    5. Big power surges can knock them out for the night.
    Ha! Just teasin’!!! 😀 😉 😛

    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…I am a follower of “disperser”. He is beloved! 🙂

  5. It is a nice looking piece of kit and I like the Egyptian artefact!


  6. I’ll grant that it’s nice looking, as for the performance I’ll have to wait and see.Going fine so far.

    The little statuette was a gift from an old girl friend of my son, many years ago. It’s quite small at 14.5 cm but weighs in at 1275 gm. I have no idea what it’s made of; feels like concrete, but too heavy for that,\

    She went on a dig, in Egypt, way back, and is now I believe an Egyptologist; she knew my interest and very kindly thought of me.

    I’m pleased to say my son got nothing 😈



  7. *bitterly jealous* Makes my monitor look like mobile phone …


    1. Rather have my old ASUS Laptop 😥


  8. Ah, the stage is set: curtains, nod to antiquities and assorted cultural relics
    Such an elegant machine – no pressure, but expectations of superior products await
    (and plain old Bob has a few words to say off the shelf this weekend – no match for disperser, though. HAHA)


  9. Missing my ASUS 😦 the HP looked nicer than the ASUS and the War Office was with me 😥
    A man should go alone to buy his stuff, don’t know what disperser thinks about that he being under the thumb and all 😈


  10. HUGS and ❤ and hope your holidays are 🐻 y good! 😀

  12. Now I feel properly guilty for missing this one! 😟. On the other hand, you probably don’t believe in penance, so I won’t do any. 😊
