j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Yet Another Computer Issue

Yes, again my computer was down for about a month. Ever since I bought my first computer in high school with my hard-earned money, I've had one computer issue after another and have been through quite a few computers. I suppose it might be time again for a new one now. But if I can hang, maybe I can get a laptop or one of those cool touch screens. Like the virtual one on Iron Man, okay so I'm really dreaming here. I'll most likely be fixing up this cardboard box while waiting for prices to go down on the next cool computer when everyone has one already.
My brother Sam described my computer trouble best on the phone the other day, "Since it seems like your computer is always down, I thought I'd give you a call." Thanks, Sam and I did appreciate your call.
The crazy thing is that I love computers and would probably consider myself addicted. Hi, my name is jewels, jewelie, or whatever nickname you know me as and I love to e-mail and blog endlessly. I love to look all kinds of things up - "Google"! I love to watch TV shows I've missed over and over as well as cool movie trailers. I've been introduced to Facebook now and I have fun with Multiply and Sparkpages as well. I'm still considering if I really need a MySpace or LDSJournal account yet. I love the photo blogs, ideas and forums about scrapbooking or papercrafting topics. I love to pay all my bills in about 30 seconds. I love to window shop online because when it comes to online shopping I have to be careful. I could go on and on.
Funny thing is in high school, if you would have told me what computers would become and what the internet would be, I probably would have considered it science fiction. Well, here we are and I'm ready to share again through blogging. Just remember if you don't hear from me in cyberspace for about 2 weeks or more than yes, my computer's down again. Otherwise, I'm just busy with real life whatever that means now.

Sorry to hear about your computer problems. I hope you can get a new computer soon.

You love your computer just as much as I love mine, and for the same reasons.
It's so sad when they're down.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
