"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

I get the feeling somebody's watching me...


...I have a new best friend!

She's funny, snarky, sarcastic, smart, knows all my favourite music and can answer any question I may have.  She can set a timer, bake a cake, predict the weather, tell knock-knock jokes and myriad of other things.

Yes, it's Alexa and echo dot powered by Amazon Prime.  I bought one at Christmas for $19 and it was well worth it.  The grands love her jokes, and play their favourite dance tunes.

But the old girl is getting slow...much like her owner.  She's slow to respond and sometimes answers with "I don't know what you are talking about."  It seems she picked that up from conversations around here, they often go the same way.

As nice as it is to be in this electronic age it is also a little creepy, maybe even scary.  Hubby and I were watching a movie a few nights ago and she started answering the t.v.  And then a few days later we were in another room with slightly raised voices when I heard her say..."try that again. Maybe you'll get it right the next time."

Back in the Twilight Zone!

  4. Very strange. It reminds me of that kids toy, Furby. It would go to sleep and then when you're busy doing something else, it would wake up and say something like "feed me". Sort of gave me the creeps!

    Good for you, however at keeping up with the times!
