The Blue Screen Of Death.......

As if my life was not already stressful enough, my computer decides it is now the time to start flaking out on me.


So a couple days ago I got the blue screen of death. Luckily Rob was here, and fixed it--turned it off, let it reset, and turned it back on. Everything was fine. I was perplexed, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

I have been editing my photos, posting to my blog, emailing people, generally working on the computer. No problems.

So I go to Delphi forums, and read at a few forums there. I was reading at the one I read like every 3 days or something, and I get the fucking blue screen of death. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I quickly turn off the computer--thank you HP for not putting a reset button on the computer.

Stare at it like it is possessed, because obviously it must be. Count to like 25 and turn it back on. Now when I turn it back I hold my breath, close my eyes and cross my fingers, so essentially I look like a fucking nut. It starts up normal. I take a breath, and open my eyes. I still have my fingers crossed.

I then get this registry has been changed warning. WTF. WTF.

I can't get a hold of Rob to find out what to do. So I leave it be. It is staring at me. Mocking me. Laughing at me. Taunting me with thoughts of computer demise.

It is at that moment that I think to myself:

"If my computer dies right now, I will go jump out of a window."

Then I think about that statement. I have a problem with that statement. I think:

"If I jump out my windows, I won't end up doing anything but bruising myself, because our windows are maybe 6 feet off the ground, this being a ranch style house. Crap."

Wow. Just wow. I won't even be able to off myself in spectacular fashion. Is there no justice in this world?

For the love of everything that is holy, someone please, give me a break.
