Things That Make You Go Fuuuuuuuuudge
Yesterday, in an unfortunate turn of events, an unnamed assailant accidentally introduced a wooden block to my laptop screen. The resulting ominous, jet-black splotches and huge banks of horizontal lines are like a digital Rorschach test with a subliminal message of "Hey, lady! You're f*cked!"
And, really, it's my own elitist liberal fault for having heavy, wooden, Swedish blocks instead of lightweight, lead-dusted, Chinese blocks. Plastic blocks might poison you slowly, but they would never dream of destroying your computer. Or your dreams.
But, honestly, it's OK. It's just a computer. There's no use crying over spilled LCD crystals, right? (I will admit to having one good cry about it yesterday, but I'm fine now. Mostly fine. 83% fine.) There are more important things to cry about, including this incredibly tender PBS promotional spot that turns me into an emotional mess every time it airs in between all our elitist liberal children's programming. Mr. Rogers never fails to get me. Please go watch it and we can gently weep together.
(In the meantime, I cannot say enough about your comments on the last post. Exciting! Encouraging! Surprising! It was so wonderful to hear from all of you. I will write something proper as soon as humanly possibly.)
