Yes, I have been quiet recently on both this site and my site. Sadly, I got the dreaded blue screen of death. I did actually try to stream the Joaquin Phoenix *cough*bio pic*cough* before my computer crashed so maybe Casey Affleck should get me a new computer. My phone also died. The Blackberry rollerball decided to liberate itself from it’s flimsy prison. I believe it might have been eaten by my imaginary friend.
For me, this month has been “Digital Disaster December”. Angst! Sadness! Woe! Woe Blackberry (Blam-a-lam)! But as of Saturday, my cell phone sobfest reached a thrilling climax. From the ashes of my Blackberry rose a phoenix from the ashes. iPhone 4. It is a holiday present to myself (which means no one else is getting a present this year… suckers).
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, I felt like I was in recovery. I had limited internet access so I couldn’t log in to any of my favorite sites. I couldn’t listen to my Podcasts. And my iPod wiped itself when I plugged it in to my computer. I guess I should have known my desktop was crapping out.
Without electronics I have been shaking like a chihuahua in Connecticut. I wanted to check everything to see what people were posting. What was happening to all of my friends? It is amazing how addictive the internet has become for me. Luckily, my mother and I had planned to bake a metric buttload of cookies and peanut butter truffles so at least I had something keeping me busy. We made Christmas dinosaurs. I named mine Rex Harrison (The stegosaurus, obviously. The T-Rex is Jimmy Stewart.)
Question: What do you get irritated about when you can’t use it? Does the fail whale make you want to punch a baby?
NERDS IN BABELAND AND CRANIALSPASM DO NOT CONDONE THE PUNCHING OF BABIES.
I felt it necessary to pop on here and let you guys know that I’m still here, just think of me as the girl in the cast on the volleyball team. I’ll be limited until desktop resurrection.
Since I’ve been ranting about myself, I figure I should drop some nerd knowledge trivia on you all.
Did you know that “The Twelve Days of Christmas” actually starts on December 25th? It ends on January 5th, also known as “Twelfth Night”. William Shakespeare’s comedy “Twelfth Night” is believed to have been written to end the Christmas season with a laugh. I JUST MADE YOU LEARN SOMETHING! BWAHAHAHA!
(For you Angel fans, a little more trivia! Illyria is the name of the setting of Twelfth Night and is believed to be an ancient region on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea.)
You’re welcome internets. I miss you terribly.
