Technology: I Love You, I Loathe You!

"Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain." ~J.K. Rowling

Oh, for the love of technology. Seriously, I love it and loathe it at the same time. It is FANTASTIC when it works and HORRIBLE, DISGUSTING, WORTHLESS, and (feel free to add in your own adjective here) when it doesn't. My computer is 1.5 years old and over the past few weeks has been "acting up": sometimes it works just fine, other it decides to quit, and most RECENTLY it sometimes just decides NOT to turn on...for an entire day.

Yesterday, case in point. On Friday, I did a bunch of tests (I don't know what they actually tested) but the computer doctor was working some kind of magic. I was able to get it up and running and for most purposes, "normal" again. Last night, everything is fine, and then BOOM nothing. I spent ALL day trying to get it to work and it seriously wasn't until 9:30 last night before it could work.

I felt like I was going to hyperventilate. I hadn't checked email ALL day, I hadn't checked my friends out in Blogland updates and happenings, I couldn't see if there was any new news in the Jon and Kate fiasco, I hadn't checked on ALL of the orders I received (ahem, perhaps some of your computers were broken as well-just kidding), and I couldn't check to see if the house that I am pining for is still available. AHHHHH!

Ok, I took a moment to breathe and feel better now. You see, I am not even as "addicted" to this computer or my cell phone as some people, but when it DOESN'T WORK, I go insane. I feel like a drug addict going through withdrawals. I also internally go in to this rage mode like you see in the movies...I feel like I am blowing up like the Incredible Hulk and want to throw my computer through the window. Clearly, that is not very ladylike or practical and may frighten the minis just a tad if I did that. Also, Mr. Molly Lou wouldn't be pleased and then who knows what my new computer timeline would be.

If this keeps up, I may go prematurely gray, develop a twitch, or stop using technology all together. (I laughed out loud at that one, we all know that won't happen, so just keep your fingers crossed and say a little prayer that the first two don't happen to me.)

In other news: Enter the MLG Extravaganza contest until Thursday and also Flip Flops & Pearls contest until Friday. The details and links to enter are at left. "Snapshot Saturdays" starts this week...thanks to those who have sent theirs's been fun to see so far. Keep sending them...links and info. at left.

Have a great day! Cheers!

  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one with a love/hate relationship with technology! It's crazy how much we do in our life with it -- I'm thinking of rebelling and not taking my computer this weekend, I dunno though... I'm getting nervous just thinking about it.


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
