always breakin'

When your prized posessions break, get lost, or are stolen it can be gutwrenching. Just recently I had a 120GB hard drive die, bent the pins on my cell phone that allowed me to charge it, had spotty success with the wireless connection on my laptop, lost my little cell phone flashlight thingy, and today - the worst tragedy of all - I smashed my iPod. The snap on my laptop bag came apart, which let gravity do what it does best. My noble iPod put it's life on the line to save my happy laptop. Let us all take a moment to remember the good times that we've had with my iPod... the laughs, the late moonlit nights down by the river, the long car rides. Ok, maybe that's just me.

To balance things out, my TiVo has been plugging along for four years, my car is relatively problem free, the lamp in my projector has lasted over 2500 hours on a 1000 hour bulb, and Stacey hasn't dumped me yet despite my idiosyncrasies.


  1. ohhh... i'm so sorry to hear about your ipod :( is there any way it can be saved? if you don't mind reliving the horrid details, how did it smash? just falling to the ground or something more than that?

    you and your ideosyncrasies are cute, for the most part :) you put up with mine too, so we're even.

  2. What a brave little iPod, he served you so well and even managed to keep a gleam in your eyes when the flashy mini iPods tried to kick him out. And now he gave his all for you and for your laptop. Just plain beautiful.

    I put $100 dollars in the ATM machine and Wachovia said the envelope was empty. suckarific...I could have bought a bunch of those cell phone light up flash lights and give you one with the money.

  3. sorry about the Ipod thing dude. I would hope that if I somday get an Ipod, it would do the same for my laptop... because I love my laptop almost more than I love my drumset.
    But Stacey staying with you IS quite the accomplishment. Congrats!
