Important, Laptop Reasons

Pfft. There's a reason I've not been on here for a while.

Actually, there's a few of them. First and foremost is my laptop problems. I broke mine, purchased a new cheap one, and then found out that my old one wasn't busted after all. It evidently just needed a good rest overnight, and was ready to go in the morning.

Needless to say, this little development blew my mind to the point where I was reduced to staring blankly at the screen of my "broken" laptop while it displayed the receipt email for the new one. I think I may have twitched a little too. Also said a couple bad words, like "what the--?" and "crap!".

I'm working on a couple of little stories here, too, and considering getting a t-shirt printed up with some of our Old Man quotes on it. Wouldn't YOU like a stylish, all-cotton t-shirt with the words "Don't gimme nunna yer dill puckery!" written on the front in big, bold letters? Perhaps with a little drawing of an old man on the back? Of course you would.

Disappointment at the turnout of my "contest" was also a deciding factor, but not really. Nobody turned anything in, which was alright since I didn't have to do any work, but I did lose some faith in... Okay, so I'm lazy. That's about as honest an approach as you're going to see outta me today. I'm busy Lying for the Good of the People. Telling my father that Sprocket didn't pee in his speakers. Referring to my "ownership of a Ford Contour" as "I get to fly the Space Shuttle anytime I want!" to strangers.

For their good.

Not to mention, P.W., that I've been busily fighting crime. Crime's been awful scared lately, thanks to me.

I had a similar situation with cameras last month. I thought Mom’s was broke, and since I bought it for her for Christmas, and since I was the one using it when it “broke”, I felt responsible for getting her a new one. The next day I turned the old one on, to prove to someone that it was broke, and it worked fine! Has been ever since. On the bright side: I now have a new camera…with 2 more mega pixels than Mom’s! Hee hee. As for your contest, I could definitely relate to stupid accidents, but I most of them weren’t my fault. Really! I am surprised that Stupid’s Wifey didn’t submit her brother’s accident…the one where he ran into a light pole in the insurance company’s parking lot. He was on his way out after stopping there to inquire about cheaper rates. Needless to say, he didn’t bother going back there. I vote for the T-shirts.
