never underestimate the power of effing shit up

By 3/11/2009


yesterday i reaffirmed my belief that when things break, all the they is a good smacking around to be fixed.

case in point - my camera broke a few weeks back. lens wouldn't focus. horrible beeping. no picture taking. this has happened to me at least 3 times now, and i'm tired of buying new cameras.

as my last course of action, i decided to thunk it with my palm. no dice. so i hit it against my shoe. then i banged it on my desk a few times. then i stood up, and chucked it as hard as i could onto the floor.

yup, you got it. works perfectly now.

  5. Ok. This is really the first day that I've read your blog. I know, where've I been? I love it! I just finished reading the post about Lindsey Lohan. I cried. The best thing I've read in a long time. I will be a regular.

  7. i thought i was the only one with "VCR syndrome" of the 80s. When in doubt, beat the sh*t out of electronics! (i tried to explain this philosophy to a friends husband once in regards to his deluxe dvd player not working and he looked at me dumbfounded. perhaps this is why i purchase dvd players at target.)
