Troubles

Friday, June 11, 2010 6:04 PM By Simon

In a tragic turn of fate surely brewed by the demons themselves, my computer spazzes out the day I get four excelletn DVDs from the library, two from the mail, and a report to type by Monday. And, my lovelies, I haven't backed the thing up since April, and I must restore it to get any semblance of use out of it again. So, I am feeling a touch suicidal right now, because I am physically incapable of watching movies anywhere but my computer.

No movies all weekend. Or next weekend, because I have finals. You may commence feeling sorry for me.

:( last year my old computer literally exploded while I was using it. Like with sparks and fire. My sympathies go with you. Also damn, finals! I haven't thought about that since April.

I don't know what's sadder. This - or the fact you left me out of your blog roll. I'm going to cut myself. Let it be on your head, okay?

Been there. Just got my computer back from HP Tech Support. Quite an adventure.

Frank: You're on there. Look harder.

Everyone else: You all get hypothetical presents.
