A happy new year...for some of us.
Today just hasn't been a good day for me. It's just one of those days where everything's not going your way. I queued ages for an internet download only to be disconnected halfway. I made dinner that tasted like shit.. (usually it's just about bearable), then Windows XP made me feel like an idiot by telling me its not safe to download some codecs so I couldn't watch a streaming video of my favourite guitar hero. Not like it even gave me a fucking choice to download them or not.. Then my bluetooth dongle wouldn't work when I connected it to my PC. Well it did, but I just couldn't send stuff from my phone. If you ask me, my computer has become some kind of paranoid mother telling me what I can and can't do now. For fuck's sake, you'd think the most updated version of WinXP would give you less problems when all I really wanted to do 10 minutes ago was throw this fucking machine out my goddam window and hope it kills as many birds on its way down.
But I digress. Afterall, I am too poor to destroy my own property. Instead, I close my eyes and count backwards from 10. Just like I did after my internet download got disconnected. And just like I did after dinner. Rage is blind for sure. Because when your state of mind flicks to that mentality, you really don't give a shit that you paid 50 bucks for that bluetooth dongle you are crushing repeatedly under the leg of your chair as you jump up and down on it. And the sadistic part is you just might actually enjoy it.
So I guess I've had a bad day. But still I have to think that other people do have it worse. Like my friend Danni who's girlfriend left him and then he got in a car accident recently. It sucks when all this has to happen at the year end...not to forget the tsunami that's taken so many lives...sigh. Well, happy new year. At least we have 2005 to look forward to.
Oh wait, Bush is in power for the next 4 years. Dammit.
