My laptop is having issues. I think the battery is shot, and I just need to make an appointment with a little Mac Genius and figure out how much money I'm going to have to cough up for a new one.
Let it be known that there are few things I enjoy less than the Apple store and paying to fix technology. Add that to the fact that the new iPhone is coming out this week and there is no place I would rather avoid that the throngs of crazies waiting in line for their Latest and Greatest. Let's just be clear that there aren't many things that will scare me away from the mall, but iPhone release day is one of them.
I am not computer savvy- I'm sure I don't understand half of what my computer is capable of, and I also don't care. I have simple needs- I want to edit my thousands of pictures, sync my phone and carry on with my life. Oh and I love making lists on the little Stickies. Those are cute. Since I sit in front of a computer all day at work, I prefer to read, cook, watch pointless T.V. shows, exercise or just have a little old-fashioned human interaction when I'm at home.
Speaking of pointless T.V. shows and "technical" difficulties, I hope that someone else also saw the previews for next week's Bachelorette. I don't think that anything so personal, invasive or downright mortifying for men has ever been so publicly discussed on a reality show. We even had to rewind it to make sure we heard them correctly. I can't imagine anything so public that could possibly be more embarrassing.
I guess there are worse things that could happen to me this week than having to buy a new computer battery?
Technology...is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.
