Technology…designed to make our lives easier. My PDA keeps me on track. My cell phone keeps me in touch. My computer keeps me insane.
My new laptop is in the shop. My beautiful, shiny, fast laptop may have something wrong with the harddrive. Apparently it’s not supposed to get so hot or freeze up. Hopefully my external harddrive was fixed and has all my info on it or you’re gonna hear the scream. Right now I’m breathing life into my old laptop. It’s working just well enough to check emails and very light web browsing. I’m going nuts.
I haven’t read blogs in days. I haven’t updated this blog in days. The computer is so slow that blog-reading and blog-updating takes much longer than necessary. When I can just about walk to the server to retrieve my emails, blogging has to take a backseat. It’s killing me. I knew I was (ahem) addicted, but I had no idea it was this bad! : ) I wish I could say my house is suddenly clean, or my scrapbooks were suddenly up to date, or I suddenly read several books, but no. Just retrieving emails from my server takes so long that even with multi-tasking, it sucks up time. It’s gotten to the point that I’m calling people back rather than email them. No wonder this computer won’t run the boys’ computer games; it just curls up in the fetal position and whimpers when you try to get it to run Bob the Builder.
I miss my iTunes.
Not having Quicken at my fingertips makes me nervous.
My business software is not with me, therefore I’m in a mild state of panic.
Overall, my name is Jen and I am a computer addict.
