So. I have regrettably been away from my blog for far too long. IT'S NOT MY FAULT. I promise! ;-D
My laptop committed suicide, so I've been having to get by with the...cue ominous music...."family computer". Basically, I've been barely even doing my homework. AND, I HAVEN'T EVEN TALKED TO KATE IN LIKE THREE DAYS.
Care to hear about the harrible (yeah, I'm still talking like Shirley MacLaine) incidents surround my laptop's suicide?!
AND, I had a glass of delicious, iced Organic Santa Cruz Mango Tea. It kinda makes life worthwhile (p.s. I bought said tea with final remaining pennies). I set my laptop, Arnold, on my desk, plugged it in and turned it on. I turned away to grab something...and....SMASH!....SPLASH! My laptop was flat on the ground...screen down....with mango tea all over it. It's IMPOSSIBLE to even think that I may have accidentally tripped on the charging cord. It was definitely a case of suicide.
I had exactly six days left on my warranty (I've had the computer less than a year), so I sent it in. I got word yesterday that the motherboard is fried and that is the one thing that is not covered by my warranty and if I want them to repair Arnold it will cost me $380. But, unfortunately, I had already spent my life's savings on that glass of mango tea, sooo....
ANYWAY, moving on to Thomas Paine. Mere moments ago, I finished an essay about the similarities between his and Phillis Wheatley's writing. They are both pretty awesome! (This adds nothing to my blog post. It just made the title of my post more symmetrical!)
Now, to the "vintage" part of my post!
So, today did not look to be going exactly excellently...just from the morning. So there I was sitting on a bus heading to college. I had my MP3 player on shuffle and was staring listlessly out the window. SUDDENLY, "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter" (Herman's Hermits) started playing. Who knows how it got on my player, but I just started laughing so hard. Peter Noone just sounds like a little leprechaun. A little British accented leprechaun.When it got the line: "Walkin' about, even in a crowd, well, you'll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud" I SERIOUSLY thought he was going to sing, "makes an elf feel so proud". Well, this dumb, little song from the 60's highly brightened my mood today! And NOW, on top of always saying, "Harrible" like Shirley MacLaine, I'll only ever be able to say "Lulvely" like Peter Noone.
So, how are you guys?! And BTW, if possible, send me the link to your latest posts. Minus my computer, I sort of forgot my password to Bloglovin' and sorta haven't been able to read any blog posts! :-/
Have a lulvely day!
