About two days ago I was reunited with the internet after a recent departure with my former computer that sadly died the day after christmas, upon receiving Spore. My boyfriend and I were slightly saddened because our new joined addiction was quickly ripped away. After mourning the loss of our dear computer we buried it in our junkpile cemetery for a hopeful 'someday' resurrection.
I can't say January was a great start to the new year. As before it got started it already seemed to be a rocky climb. Since the beginning of the year I've experienced two losses within my family and friends. My heart goes out to them and I know deep within there are new angels among us smiling down from the skies looking over us.
Once we came home from a short journey down south I quickly fell into the world of our Xbox 360 visiting the land of Albion in Fable II. For a straight 2-3 days I was engulfed realizing then shortly I had in fact beat the game quicker than I wanted to with plently time to spare to still explore many new places and things.
And then ...
It happened again ...
Right from my finger tips and before my eyes. It was ripped from me faster than meets thee eye. As I listened to our xbox 360 scream and die, and to which horror my I dismay. It froze .. to death. As I hugged the controller frantically and attempted CPR a tear trickled from my eye. "My boyfriends going to be "Crushed". As I glance at the line of collected games one stuck out like a sore thumb "Mass Effect 2" I remember not even 2 days before how he waited in line at the local gamestop to receive his long awaited game. Like a kid in the candy store, Like fresh warm brownies from the oven ... and in a flash it was all gone. Nothing but crumbs. In this case just three red glowing lights. We promptly shipped it to the Microsoft Emergency room where it would be hospitalized for 2-3 weeks.
We are now glad to announce the return of our Xbox 360, and two new bundles of Joy. A playstation 2 and an adopted Compaq. So, as we have had our ups and downs. The climbed has been rugged but with hope still in our eyes we returned to the wonderful world of Technology. Isn't it grand.
I hope all is well with each and everyone of you.
May the sun shine upon you and may the wind be at your back.
