Curtain Call: Computer Edition

Well, after yesterday's ranting, my computer finally went to its eternal resting place. It blue screen of death'd out, twice, and now won't come on. The power button does nothing and the reset button on the back makes it hum, but nothing happens. It's dead. Terrible timing, too.

So, I'm getting a new one. I ordered a Dell XPS 8300 last night. Matt's computer is a Dell XPS and he really likes it. This computer got really good reviews all around, so I'm looking forward to replacing my broken machine with one that works. What isn't awesome is that this is just one more thing that we've had to put money we couldn't afford to spend on. So, now all I can do is hope that Matt's computer doesn't start being an asshole, or that our fridge, washer, and dryer decide to survive, etc.  Thank goodness for credit, honestly, because otherwise the single most significant gadget in my life, my computer, wouldn't have been replaced.

So, there you have it. One more gripe about everything breaking to go with yesterdays tantrum about my computer's troubles. Now, I'm going to go do something and mope about my computer being dead, because frankly, I can't stand to look at my netbook any longer. The gray spots all over the monitor, which I think might be dust inside the screen, are just agitating me.
