I Have a 7-Year-Old Car and a 5-Year-Old Computer
Most people think I have a pretty nice car. Most people think my computer is really old. I'm all for cool new technology, but I don't think it's fair that after just five years, my computer is so very behind the times, and I'm running around with my fingers crossed that I'll get around to purchasing a new computer before this one crashes one final, deadly time.
Anyway, I was all set to finally write about the books I've been reading but not reporting on over the past month, when my computer decided that it didn't want to listen to Loretta Lynn, and the best way to tell me that was to lock up so tight I was forced to hold in the power button to shut it down. That wasted time and really killed the mood, so all you're going to get right now is a list, and I'll try to tell you a little more about some of them on another day.
