The Talking Feral Fridge.

This will be the last post I ever publish on this computer. A computer now so slow that I find myself trying to will the bloody thing to load up by spinning the wheel on my mouse.  A mouse as in a computer mouse, although both can be rather fond of wheels.  

Trying to get to your site and comment has become a frustrating, flustered futility.  

So, for no apparent reason whatsoever, I shall publish one of my coolest posts ever to end the usage of this computer.  
I'm sure you have observed that fridges do indeed "talk."  I mentioned the uniqueness of each fridge's "voice" in a previous post.  The above fridge is my old fridge.  The above, old fridge now resides at my son Tristan's new place.  The old fridge makes a sound like a squealing pig with a rumbly tummy.  That sound can now continue to delight my son.  
My new fridge, which I've been told is classified as a "domestic appliance" doesn't seem domestic at all.  I would consider it, if anything, that the screeching sounds are more reminiscent of a wild animal than a domestic appliance..  The noises emanating could, however, be considered the sound of a "gross domestic product."

My new feral frost-free fridge fluctuates flatulence factors forebodingly.  Yes, in other turds, in other words, it can sound like a gurgling fart.

It also has this uncanny knack of sounding like Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar in one of her whining moments.

I heard that whining noise the other day.  "Are you okay, Penny?"  I inquired.  Only to suddenly realise that Penny wasn't with me and I was talking to the talking feral fridge.

  1. My own computer was slowing down and overheating and I was worried that I was going to lose everything. That happened before and I lost hundreds of pictures of my kids when they were just little. Even though I could not really afford it I bought a new laptop. I have to say that I love it! It even has a touch screen! wooooooooot!

    Now I want to hear your fridge.

    1. Hi ditchingthedog,

      That's a real bummer what happened to you, my friend. This new computer I'm now typing from has a touch screen and it takes some getting used to. So does having a computer that actually works.

      *Gurgle, belch and whine!* The fridge has spoken :)

      Happy Sunday and thank you.

  2. How about "London Fridge is Falling Down"? Sorry, that's all I've got, LOL! My fridge makes a very loud clicking noise every once in a while when I least expect it. I suspect it's related to the frost-free aspect too, somehow.

    1. Hey Debra,

      Nice one. How about the Lion's Gate Fridge? :) The frost free aspect may well be the cause of the clicking noise. I remember my other frost free fridge needed a lot of defrosting. Go figure, eh.

      Happy Canadian flag day!

  3. Our fridge too is very talkative. Very, very talkative, and I am glad I don't speak fridge. I am pretty certain that some of the things it says require its mouth being scrubbed out...

  5. Hello Gary,

    Oh dear, computer problems can be so irritating and, needless to say, expensive to rectify. Usually the computer geek simply pronounces death by overheating and it is cheaper to buy a new one than put right the malfunctioning parts.

    It sounds as if your all singing, dancing, talking fridge might actually be better than a computer. Have you tried blogging on it?! The best fridge we ever had was an ancient Russian model which was left behind in the small flat we bought when we first came to Budapest. It had no shelves so everything had to be stacked on top of everything else and it made a noise like a railway train rattling through a station. But, it never went wrong......indestructible we thought!

    1. Hello Jane and Lance,

      Yes, computers can be an expensive nightmare. Although, my computer, which is now safely disposed of, was on an old Windows system. I'm delighted to state that I'm now typing using a new computer. Which means, I've run out of excuses!

      Strangely enough, I have indeed tried to use my fridge to do a blog. I ended up making an iced of myself. If you ever see a fridge speeding along some train tracks, I reckon you two would not be surprised. A fridge to far and yet indestructible!

      Thank you both.

So, yeah, I feel your pain in regards to talking appliances.

  19. Good to see you haven't lost your sense of refrigerator-necessiti-ness. That and your sense of the sublime. I would like to suggest that not only is your fridge whining, plus dancing when you're not at home, (rumours run rampart throughout the neighbourhood), it's sending you a subliminal message from beyond the feral fidgety spectrum. My advice... when you get the new computer, be at full alertness for any signs that the fridge is speaking in new fraudulent whistling-type murmurs. Don't laugh, my friend. Since it's obvious the squirrels failed to take over the earth, the refrigerators have stepped up to the plate. Okay, they're dancing to the plate--so beware! And yes, I am a fiction writer, but I knowith from where I speakith.

  45. Isn't it creepy when appliances make sounds of their own? I'm glad I'm not the only one! Sorry about the computer. :(

    1. Hi Riot Kitty,

      It sure is. We should form a support group for those of us who get creeped out by domestic appliances. Old computer has gone. Hello new computer! :)

      Thank you, my friend.

  46. I have a feral fridge. I expect it to attack one of these times when I'm on my way to the tamer, less aggressive trash compactor. We call him, Brutus.

    Bye bye old slow bits and bytes. Hello new spiffy ever-efficient and oh so speedy technical assistant. But just in case, buy the support. Experienced new computer owner here.

    1. Hi Lady Lee,

      I just knew you would have a feral fridge. A domestic appliance, I don't think so. Trash compactor is quite the garbage gobbler.

      Old computer has gone to the old computer sleeping grounds. I have support included in my applications. As for Windows 8.1 plus a bottle of ketchup, I haven't even looked at it.

      Thank you, celebrity author, Lee.

  47. I'm having a similar problem with my computer and trying to visit blogs on it is enough to give me a nervous breakdown. The pets run and hide at this point whenever I get on the damn thing. Here's to speedy new computers for both of us.
    Hi, Penny! :D

    1. Hi Julie,

      I so understand about the nervous breakdown bit, dear Julie. I am so glad to have finally got another one. The amount of screaming I've been doing could of got me arrested. I hope you get a new computer soon, for your sake and your beloved animals' sake.

      Thank you, Julie.

  48. The time comes when computers and fridges have to be replaced. I hated to lose the old computer, but now with the new one I wonder why we didn't sooner. Our fridge isn't as impressive as your feral one. Thanks for the cute post!

    1. Hi Connie,

      Fridges and computers. One needs replacing because it stops freezing. The other needs replacing because it starts freezing. I would of bought a new computer sooner. However, having just moved, I decided that buying a bed was a good idea.

      Thank you, Connie.

    1. Hey Barry,

      After spending the last few days having funs with the runs, I hope that I can stop talking shit and get on with it.

      I bought a HP Pavilion all in one computer. So far, so good.

      Chat soon, dude.

  50. I hope you get a new computer soon. My old laptop was getting really slow too. Then if I pushed it, it would freeze. So annoying! My furnace talks. It's saying, please God help me make it through this long winter. Or maybe that's what I'm saying....

    Hugs Gary!!

    1. Hey Elizabeth,

      I'm using my new computer and basically ignoring Windows 8.1 :) Yes, fridges are supposed to freeze and yet we both know of another kind of freeze. Computers that become slower than parked cars!

      Your furnace may well have a heated conversation. See you soon, other than having the runs, I've runs out of excuses. A computer that actually works. What a concept.

      Gary :)

  51. Gary! I'm not gonna beat around the bush. I miss hearing from you. That's right.

    Hey, that's a talking fridge. I've got one too. It keeps wjispering, "Pssssssst Blue. Hey, Blue. No need to be on a diet. Come hither.... I've got something I know you'll like." That kinda thing.

    1. Hey Blue!

      I beat around a few bushes in my time. Just when I started getting momentum, I got very ill. I almost shit myself.

      Your fridge is trying to make an ice of you. Shall come and visit you very soon. That would be after I make another mad dash to the can, man.....

    3. Hey Blue buddy,

  52. My fridge purrs. I'm fairly certain it's not much longer for this world. Do you get to take a bat to the old computer once it's replaced?

    1. Hey Shannon,

      Sounds like you have a domesticated appliance. Perhaps you could have your fridge cryogenically sorted out for a possible return. I took the old computer to the computer graveyard and placed in beside a Atari computer game.

  55. Yep, my fridge also makes weird noises when it is making ice and whoever designed this fridge (it came with the house) didn't know what they were doing.

    As a first time visitor, I appreciate your honest and can see how hard it can be some days and pray for you to maintain your sarcastic wit to help you through the depression.

    1. Hi sage,

      Your fridge may of taken on part of the personality of whoever lived there before.

      You are most perceptive, my kind friend. Sarcasm and yep, even a dash of cynicism helps me through the depressive state. That and the interaction within the blogging community.

      Thank you, sage.

I do try to comment back to each commenter individually. However, I might have to shorten my replies or give a group thank you. That way, I can spend more time commenting on your blogs. Thank you and peace, my friend.
