Please enjoy this reenactment of me yelling at my laptop ten minutes ago: okay, what? What?! Work, dammit, work!
My computer has decided to go on the fritz at a most inopportune time, as I’m trying to book airline flights, keep up with NaBloPoMo and generally surf the world wide web. Le sigh. Thank goodness for my being a slave to Steve Jobs, though, as I am so conveniently able to fulfill my NaBloPoMo commitment via my iPhone.
Not sure what’s going on with my poor laptop, but it started yesterday when I was unable to unmute. Computers on mute aren’t any fun, are they? I mean, how am I supposed to watch my beloved Vimeo videos, listen to Ira Glass, or read listen to my book? Not to mention, I would guess that this question has been asked previously, but how is it possible that we are able to send people rocketing through orbits and space and atmospheres in a piece of metal at 5,298 mph to walk on the moon, but are unable to build a laptop that lasts longer than 2 1/2 years? A laptop that is neither required to enter any orbits nor atmospheres other than the one in which it lives? Mind-baffling.
Nevertheless, my very exciting posting will have to wait until tomorrow when I am at work get home from work and can McGuyver this bad boy up. Stay tuned.
