Technology and Nature Are Attacking Me


Well lets start with the most frustrating.  I love my blackberry phone and my laptop.  They help me with my job and my blogging and just keeping up with my friends.  Well my blackberry just blew up....it turned off and will not come back on.  I have done everything I can think of to get this stupid phone to come back on and no luck. 

Update:  The wonderful people who have the insurance on my phone have managed to ship me a new one overnight.  I have service through Asurion and I called last night about 10:30-11:00 and they have it shipped already and it should be to me today.  That is kind of amazing.

Next, I am trying to get a new template for my blog.  Something new, you know I like to change it up every once and a while just for fun.  Well tonight I have been trying to get a new one up for the last 2 hours and nothing.  All I was able to do was get the background changed and I don't really like the new one.


For starters I am afraid of birds...that has to be mentioned first because in the morning I have birds dive bombing my front porch.  There is also a woodpecker that lives outside my bedroom window.  He has no interest in wood, but only likes my gutters.

Then the other night when I was cleaning my house I had my doors open trying to get a little air flow.  I sat down on the porch and was ATTACKED by a possum.  I love the south.  I literally screamed out loud (and not one of my neighbors came to check on me.)  The stupid possum ran on my porch toward the front door and almost went in the house.  I would have died if it had gotten inside. 

I am currently co-existing with a cricket.  I cannot catch the little guy and I cant kill it because it is bad luck to kill a cricket.  I have named him Jimminy! 

Nature and Technology....I try to be so good to you and now you are attacking me....please be nice and I will too.

I'm not sure how long I could put up with the cricket chirp.

I had some issues with animals yesterday too. We have a family of crickets outside also. Occasionally they find their way in, those buggers.
