Ever have one of those days when everything is going perfectly? You wake up after a great night’s sleep, you have a great breakfast, you get done everything you need to get done and more, and you just enjoy the hell out of it? I had a day like that last weekend. I was smiling all the way through. Nothing bad got to me, everything good went my way, and even the day after it was still pretty damn decent.
Whenever something like that happens, you should know the opposite isn’t long in coming.
Technology is something we’ve come to rely on so much that we tend to feel lost without it. Take your phone, for example. Do you have those contacts saved elsewhere? Just how important are all those texts, videos, and pictures? Would you wince if it fell into the toilet bowl? Would you cry? Scream? Have a panic attack?
What about your internet connection and everything associated with it?
I recently lost a perfectly good router to facts of life. It just walked out the door and I had to wave good bye to it and resign myself to having to search for a new one. But then, as if by stroke of
bad luck another router appeared to replace it. Not new, not even recent, but hey, free is free, right? Yeah… it’s true when they say: you get what you pay for. The problem with technology from ten years ago is that it wasn’t even so hot back then. Now there’s just no way for it to keep up. It died regularly every other night and twice on weekends. Tonight it died and could not be resuscitated by any method I was familiar with. You know it’s bad when you can’t even get to the settings to see what’s wrong.
So off I went to do what I should have done three weeks ago, and got a brand new router. It’s been plugged in for… *checks clock* half an hour now, and it’s running smooth as a kitten’s fur. I don’t want to pat myself on the back prematurely, I’m just happy to be able to type this LOL (Also glad that my mobile phone, which was new but defective so had to be replaced as well) is still allowing me to connect to the outside world via cancer causing radio waves. Good stuff.
Speaking of good stuff, how do you like my picture? Isn’t it brilliant? It was drawn for me by one of my good friends and every time I look at it, I grin like a fool. If I ever had a werewolf boyfriend, that is probably what he would look like. You can check out a bunch of her beautiful art and pictures at her Deviant Art page. Like me, she has a weakness for werewolves and shifters.
There, now that I’ve tested everything, I can happily call it a day, take a nice, hot shower and curl up in bed for a nice long time. Sweet dreams!
