Twenty Minutes - BORING

I was going to write this post about sitting in computer labs and all the characters that you find in said labs. The people that read out loud, or sing to along to their ipods, or pound on the keyboard like the buttons are made of some sort of very heavy metal. The people that read aloud are my favourite.

But anyway, as I was about to write that (surely) fascinating post I realised how BORING my posts have been lately. BORING. Do you think they're boring? You'd tell me wouldn't you?

I am waiting for my class to start at 5:30 - It'll take me about 20 minutes to walk there...and I don't know where it is. I'll leave half an hour. See BORING?

I got a new watch band today. It's brown instead of black. Uh - Boring?

I got a new laptop while in the States, did I tell you that? It is a new shiny macbook...deliciously new and exciting. On Tuesday, as I transferred files from Mr. Macaroon to NSM (New Shiny Macbook), NSM's battery started to run low. So, I plugged it in. And promptly blew a fuse in my bedroom.

I fixed the fuse problem. And yet, my NSM still wouldn't charge. Nothing! Oh the tragicness of it all. So, I called my dad.

(An aside: My dad is a fixer of problems. In fact, if something broke while I was with him, he would pull the appropriate tool out of his belt (or perhaps the large bag he carries [or if in dire straights the bed of his truck!]) and WAM BAM the problem is not only fixed but the object is better than it was before.)

"What else can I try? It won't work, it won't work, it won't work!"

"Do you have a voltmeter handy?"

"No, I do not! I do not indeed!"

"That's why I carry a voltmeter in my pants."


  1. Oh look, I'm commenting! I'll give you three guesses as to who I am. And if you cant get it in one, I'm throwing the BFF necklace down the toilet. Ps. Your dad cracks my shit up.

  2. I only need one guess - like last night? wha?
