Karma is an ironic bitch
So my laptop has decided that today would be a good day to go tits up, stop working and give me the Black Screen Of Death. On day one of the 26- day A To Z Blogging Challenge.
This has got to be the most ironic karma of all time.
Here's my theory: I decided to make Things I Hate my Challenge theme, thereby committing myself to spending all of April filling the universe with my negativity, complete with a Hate-O-Meter featuring a flaming middle finger rating system. The universe retaliates by sending my computer to burn in technological hell. Coincidence???? I. Think. Not.
A massive pain in the ass, but not the end of the world...my prewritten blog posts are safe and sound in my Blogger draft file, so I can still access them, and I can borrow Spielberg's laptop (much to his chagrin, which made me change my request to borrow his laptop into a statement that I AM borrowing his laptop while he's at his dad's, and he best stop pissing and moaning about it, unless he'd like to spend the next 2 weeks laptop-less).
However, Spielberg's computer is slower than evolution, the touchpad mouse doesn't work, something is wonky with his settings and I'm being forced to remember all my passwords. And I have to remember to log out of everything. And clear the browser history. AND share with a 13 year old who will probably allow me about 10 minutes of computer time a day when he gets home from his dad's. I'm already predicting that until I can replace my laptop, my blogging/social networking time just got way shorter and far, far more annoying.
In short? My celebration of all things worthy of my hatred for the month of April? Has just come back and bit me in the ass. It's like and endless loop of hatred cause-and-effect.
Fuck you, karma.
