Ok. Die is extreme. Kick someones ass? Throw things? I don’t know. I was thinking along the lines of the old favorite saying of
Life’s a Bitch then you die
My laptop died. Kaput. Plooey. It just decided to hibernate..ok it did threaten me and I ignored it …. and now refuses to wake up. I am pissed. Incredulous would be a better word maybe. Or I started off with incredulous and now I’m pissed.
I am sure that it needs a new battery. I refuse to think it could be worse. Not like my last one that is fried. With all my pictures and important stuff still inside. No I can’t let myself go there now. A battery is bad enough. Do you know how much those things cost?
I feel like I have been put in isolation and for what offense? This isn’t fair I tell you. Thank goodness for my handy phone. Uh yea, there’s an App and I have it. But it is rather restrictive. Starting with typing on a teeny tiny keyboard with one thumb all the way to I dont know how to navigate my way around my phone like I do my laptop. My world, once greatly expanded and enriched by technology, has been made smaller and more restrictive. And I hate it.
I have never posted a final draft from my phone. I never had the patience. And my thumb gets tired. But its better than giving up. Right? We shall see I suppose.
I remember life before phones. Or more specifically cell phones. I dont even think my Mom remembers life before phones.
Today is Mom’s birthday by the way. Happy Birthday. I love you and the card is in the mail. What you didn’t get it? Blame technology. Ok no I am kidding. I would be silly to mail your card, us only living a mile apart. It’s stuck as a rough draft on my laptop. That is true but I still have time to salvage something. So I won’t elaborate. And I see you holding your watch up again so to to do so might be pointless. Good intentions….something about the road to hell. I am on it I tell you.
Ummm..life before cell phones. And computers. Look what technology has, done for us. And how far we have come. I like all that it has made available. But I miss the simplest things of before. Like going places without worrying if you will have cell service. When you went you were gone and unreachable until you got back home.
But I love my laptop. I love all the places I can go, things I can learn, and that I can have it right next to me on my bed to record my.thoughts and ideas and ….. Ug. Im discombobulated. And unhappy.
Guess I’ll just have to deal until I get money for a battery. Hoping of course that really is the problem. I wonder… I haven’t checked the couch cushions lately and I repaid my.i.o.u.’s that I put in the various piggy banks of The Gaggle…. Where do they keep those things?
What technology gives is so easily taken away.
That’s a bitch. Bigger than life.
And as much as I’d love to roll my sleeves up and really get my Bitch on….. I don’t think I will win.
