I’m having the distinct suspicion that someone or something is out to get me.
Today at work, I was feeling fairly good. Sure I was coughing like a crazy fool, but I still felt overall pretty good.
Well apparently people at work didn’t think so. I was called into my manager’s office at about 3:00 PM and told to go home because they thought I wasn’t well enough yet.
That’s nice and all, and thank you for your concern, but I was there to work and I was feeling fine. But, they insisted and I went home.
So I got home and worked on a few things at my computer. Hey, I had the programs, so I figured I’d take a few things home. I sent those off and went to bed for a nap. (You think I wasn’t going to sleep? Ha!)
I woke up and checked Email, chatted a bit on the Internet and just took it easy.
I got a notice saying that my Internet Security program needed updating, so I started the process to update it.
I restarted the computer.
I got a blue screen of death.
That’s right folks, my brand-new computer, not even 6 months old, has just gone kaput on me.
Luckily I have a second computer at home (yes, I am that geeky) and was able to pull up Dell’s customer support. I talked with the guy there and he ran me through a bunch of diagnostics, only to find that my hard drive has, indeed, crashed. Again.
God. Damn. IT!
So Dell is sending a new Hard Drive my way. That’s wonderful and all, but it doesn’t replace every fucking program and every fucking file that I had on the old one. And yes, I did keep backups but it’d been a little while since I’d done a backup. Now all that stuff is gone.
Can I say it again? I’m going to anyway.
GOD. DAMN. IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So tomorrow I am going to the doctor in hopes that I don’t have Pneumonia. With the way my luck has been going, don’t be surprised if I am admitted into the hospital for a while.
I’m not saying I will be, but…
..just don’t be surprised.
