My love/hate relationship with technology and Original Sin Teaser #51
Technology is great, except for when it isn't.
I just got a new phone. I was seriously overdue. So, this phone is supposed to do everything and I'm all execited about it, except that there's nothing I hate more than having to figure out how to use something new. I'm not one of those people who will play with all the functions of my new gadget. I know what I need it for, and I just want to be able to use it. I get very easily frustrated when things don't work how I think they should, or at least in a logical way. Take, for example, this new Blackberry. I was going to post this blog post from it to try it out...but ran into a snag.
To type in a symbol, such as the "@" or "." in an email address, I need to go to the symbol menu. This particular one has two pages. When I was typing in my IRL, both pages came up just fine. But, when I tried to sign in to my blog and it asked for my email address, the second page of the symbol menu, where both the @ and the . are, wouldn't come up. So...therefore, I could not sign into my Blogger account, and I could not post this from my fabulous new phone.
It's the stupid little things that drive me crazy. And this is why I hate technology. NOTHING'S EVER EASY! It should be, but it's just not. And I hate it. I don't have the patience to screw around with it and figure out why it won't do what I want it to. So I give up. Which sucks. So, here's what I want to do to my new phone:
But, enough of my lamenting my ineptitude with technology. Here's today's Original Sin Teaser. I know y'all have missed Luc, so here he is:
#OriginalSin p163 Luc: This morning I’m less worried. Frannie’s with her family at church, and the chance that Rhenorian—or any other demon—is going to follow her in there is pretty slim. Not that the whole religion thing is going to scare us off. It’s just too hard not to laugh out loud. Not a wise tactic when you’re trying to blend.
Now, excuse me while I go throw my phone against the wall.
