The Grand Idiot

Okay, so I've done some stupid things in my day. Hell, I've done some stupid things in the past day. But this one takes the cake.

Here is where I would tell you what led up to the tragedy, but it's extremely boring and involves me tripping over things, because that's what I do because I am my mother's daughter and I constantly have bruises and cannot remember how said bruises came to be.

Anyway, I broke my damn laptop. The screen is busted and I am an idiot and I really, really hate myself.

I know that it's not the end of the world - it's a thing, not a, I don't know... leg - and it can be replaced. I know that this now gives me an excuse to get a computer with the kind of memory that I've been craving, but I have not the money for this kind of situation.

I have not the money for many situations. For example, it would be nice to fix the side mirrors on my car, but do I have the money for this? No, I have not the money for this. I would also like to purchase nice bookcases for the living room so that my beloved books do not perish from mold and neglect in the storage unit, but do I have the money for this? No, I have not the money for this.

Anyway, my laptop has now become a desktop and I'm using a monitor my friend Josh gave me back in, I don't know... 2005?

This reminds me of a cell phone I misremembering?

Oh, *no*, that is terrible! I'm not exaggerating. I guess I shouldn't feel so bad for you, because as you say, it's not like you broke a leg or something like that, but still, when you don't have money to replace something you depend on for every day use and that something suddenly needs replacing, it is a very bad day indeed.

lem - No, you are not mistaken - though it was a camera. Although, to be fair, I wasn't actually driving the car that ran over it. Not my fault actually. Not really.

rr - Thank you for your outpouring of sympathy. It's not that I loved my laptop - she was a total bitch, really - but it's difficult to go from depending on something one day, to realizing that you can't depend on ANYTHING, EVER because they will just leave. Leave you alone.

Goddamn electronics.

Oh I remember the story now. Hehe. It's nice to know my memory isn't totally gone.

lem - True. You are getting old.
