Technology hates me. Or something. I just tend to break it or have a hard time making it work the way I would like. In the past two years, I've gone through four phones, two computers, an Ipod dock and player, and a TV. Make that two.

My TV is old. Analog, boxy, heavy, full of static, and just old.  It hasn't been working well, and the color is starting to go right through the middle. I don't watch TV that often, so it hasn't really been a problem.

When I was in California, my sister offered to let me take an extra TV they had. Older, yes. Boxy, yes. Working, yes.  So, I brought it home.

I had a friend come and walk me up the stairs and open the door to my place because I knew I couldn't hold the TV and open the door. It was heavy and tricky to get up four flights. But, I did it.

Then, I walked right in the house, set it on the couch, and proceeded to close the door. In that time, the TV practically leapt off the couch, crashed to the floor, broke apart from the casing, and caused me to almost poop my pants. It was loud.

I promptly turned to look at my friend in horror and proclaimed, "See! I need a man for this heavy technology stuff!"

Needless to say, I now have two very heavy nonworking TVs which I now need to haul back down the stairs. And a computer. And Ipod dock.

Blaine---My old computer. A Netbook. I smashed the screen.
But, yes, I always have problems with my laptop. Currently, no pictures are showing up. They are little blue square question marks. Fantastic, eh?
