Sometimes is easy to get excited over little things. Today is one of those days. Out of an act of boredom and desperation yesterday came something that has the potential of being a life changing experience. Though yesterday at this time I didn’t know this, I really want this to happen.
I guess things really do happen for a reason.
It really annoys me that I can’t use my blog to say EVERYTHING that I sometimes want to say. Just this morning I was reading this article about people who have gotten fired over blogging and here I am seriously considering writing about something that could potentially get me fired…hmmm…though maybe being fired smack in the middle of summer wouldn’t be such a terrible thing…
I should REALLY stop having those thoughts.
I am really surprised that my little “I hate apple” post got so many people upset! In all fairness, I probably should have elaborated a little on the topic. Frustration got the better of me though. In any case, what happened was that I was having a million and one problems getting my iPod to work. Two weeks ago, it decided to take a vacation I guess and no matter what I did (or what the support site told me to do) nothing worked. It didn’t help that yesterday was probably the WORSE day ever!
Imagine this: I got woken up at like 5am by a friend who was wondering about my brother Gus’s well being.
It went like this:
me: *yawn* *look at caller ID-number unavailable (Fuck!)* hello
her: hey babe did I wake you?
me: no, I’m usually in the habit of being awake before the sun comes up!
her: I’m sorry…I just wanted to call and ask you if Gus is alright
me: why don’t you call him and ask him? I can’t believe you called me for this…
her: I did but calls are not going through
me: what? What’s going on?
her: there was a terrorist attack, didn’t you hear about it?
me: HELLO! I have been sleeping! But wait…what kind of terrorist would go attack Santo Domingo?
me: what what?
her: isn’t he in London?
me: not since june. Why? Was the attack in London?
Me: in that case, this conversation can wait until my alarm goes off. I’ll call you when I’m conscious.
That didn’t set the right tone for the rest of the day. (By the way I feel terrible about what happened and it took a while but I found all my people over in London and everyone is okay)
Anyway, this morning I woke up at my usual time but instead of doing my yoga, I tried AGAIN to get it to work and when I saw that nothing was happening, out of sheer frustration, I took the iPod and I threw it across the room. When it hit the floor I guess something happened because now it works better than ever!
I spent two weeks trying to fix the problem by treating the iPod like it was special or something, when all I should have done was treat it like any old appliance and beat the hell out of it. That never fails!
