Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

The Internet is My Crack. If I don’t have it, I am not exactly a nice person. It’s been 3 long, harrowing weeks without my habit. I don’t know how I made it without committing mass murder. First, I was waiting for the internet hooker-upper guy to finally got the connection in my new apartment in working order. Then I didn’t have the cord to my ghetto fabulous (but free) monitor. Once I got a cord, I learned that the free as an adjective for computer does not indicate good things.

The first problem occurred when I realized that I had Windows 98. While in itself, this is a semi-functional operating system, it became an issue when I hooked up my iPod. Apparently, iTunes is only compatible with Windows 2000 and above. Curses.

Then, I attempted to post on my blog. Happily, I typed in the url and attempted to log in. Fatal error. Tried again. Error. Tried again. Blue screen of death. Sh!t! (*&(%##@!%*%^$&^%#~+B*&^*&^1!!!

I am still trying to get this resolved. In the mean time, I’ve learned that a free computer is really a fancy way of saying boat anchor.
