So yesterday I work on the playlist for an hour or so as I’m trying to get out the door and home before Arlie goes to sleep… I get home, hang with the man for a little while then as he’s going down try and get on my iBook… Its actually gotten worse now, since getting it “fixed” not just the battery died but now there are all kinds of internal issues making it almost totally useless….actually I would prefer totally useless over kind of broken all the time, I could move on with my life….anyway I try to access my remote desktop and can’t anymore. Awesome.
Then I realize I haven’t sent out my playlist, its still “pending” so I’m able to get my email up to ask her to send it out….and very nicely does that and mentions to me “Wow, I didn’t know you had 35,000 members on your list!”. As I’m screaming no and trying to stop her from hitting send (I have more like 11,000) my computer goes blank again. I start laughing that weird, sort of crazy laugh you get when you know things are totally f’d up. I get back on just in time to see hundreds of out of office and various other responses flooding my inbox…..it went out to the entire database both new and old (and TRUST me when I say the “old” did not want ye ol john in the morning playlist….I think I got the three most abusive and mean emails ever. All in a row, waiting for me at 4:30am. I started my day with that laugh again….) about 35,000 people got the list Well, minus the thousands of return emails.
So I start deleting all that I can last night only to learn after a half hour that my email program LOOKS like it was deleting them but really, wasn’t. So they all come back. It took everything in my power not to A. Go crazy B. Start that weird laugh again C. Toss the iBook out the window and D. All of the above.
Instead I went the hot shower, nice dinner, sit down and watch that HBO special on global warming…which when put up against my computer woes really didn’t make me stressed out about the computer anymore….just about the earth killing itself. But that’s so big you just go to bed and wake up happy to be alive…until you see those 3 emails…..
Hopefully this one is just going out to the MF. I love you MF. Those other people freak me out.
