The Defrag Drag

   It is almost a miracle for me to reference a word like defrag.  It will be even more of a miracle if I end up referencing this word correctly.  Anyone who knows me personally is probably aware of my computer illiteracy.  I have only had a facebook account for three years, I just recently figured out the, "Cut/Paste," function on my computer, and I still have not gotten a smart phone.  Let's just say I am a late bloomer when it comes to anything technological.
   Despite my multiple limitations regarding the world of technology, I am proud to tell people that I do have this blog.  A BLOG!!!  Something  I always thought only techies could possible figure out. When I admitted to my brother z. (a card carrying techie, literally he has a fantastic business card he designed using his awesome skills in graphic design and uh, printing stuff?)... anyway, when I admitted to him that it took me a solid week to figure out how to operate the, "Blogger," website he laughed hysterically and reminded me how behind the times I really was.  
   I stick by the idea that I am competent in the computer world.  I have a blog for God's sake!  I also am a hell of an internet shopper.  I mean, do I know how to use Paypal or what?...forgetabooutit!  In addition, I believe that my enthusiasm to tackle a blog with my lack of confidence in computers shows an impressive level of commitment to fashion, a topic I have always loved.
   On the day the above photographs were taken my father was helping me defrag my computer.  This is a task I now understand is necessary to keep it running at an adequate speed for us, "up and coming," professional style bloggers.  While defragging my machine, I started thinking I may need a similar process for myself.  
   It is quite common for me to feel a tad worn out in the fall.  This is a season where the greenhouse I am employed at is usually slow, and as a result, my body and mind go into a kind of sluggish mode until the impending Christmas frenzy begins.  I decided that instead of criticizing how lazy I have been lately, I would define myself as currently running the defraggler.  In the pictures above, I even had on a fancy shirt that had computer looking waves...or blips...or fuzzy signals.  So don't tell me I'm not down with the techie talk.  My shirt has blips!
