Musings on movies, TV, comedy, photography, and living with boobs and without spatial/motor/social skills in America.
In my opinion, one of the good things about being a dork is it means you’re not evil. There’s no such thing as an evil dork. There can be evil nerds but not evil dorks. That’s why deciding someone is a dork is like the first step towards loving them.
I have always had weird luck with technology. For example, on three separate occasions, computer monitors I was using blinked out dead when I was arguing heatedly over IM. Which is weird, right? I mean, I don’t believe in anything, but that is weird.
Today, my Kindle HD died. Sort of. It turns on, but the screen is covered with brightly colored lines. Nothing (i.e, the Amazon-suggested power-cycling, no other solutions provided) fixed it. Sometimes the colors will be replaced with brighter colors, but that’s all.
Honestly, I was waiting for the shoe to drop with it; I got it for Christmas 2012 so it was overdue to stop working for no reason. Whatever.
Because I don’t have a smart phone, I busted out my handy Canon T2i to take a picture of the screen so I could upload it and ask for Tumblr’s advice. So I took the pictures as usual and now my computer isn’t recognizing the camera. Every time I plug it in, the software in the camera freezes on “Busy” or “Sensor Cleaning” for some reason and it won’t even turn off if I switch it to “Off”, the only way is to take the battery out. It takes pictures just fine, but I can’t upload them, so they’re useless.
Which is fucking shiiiiiiittty because the Film Fest is in three months and I can’t enter if I don’t have a camera.
And worse still, now my CD drive keeps opening and closing by itself and I don’t know why. If I were hot, I would suspect one of those remote hackers who likes to torture and spy on young women. But no one wants to watch an ugly girl freak out, so I don’t know what’s going on.
Most importantly, I’m no longer in Des Moines!
Because one of those things isn’t going to work out and I’m going to be so fucked and I’m having a panic attack right now.
