Another "me" moment...

So I locked myself out of my computer today. Yes, it is possible. I had to have my computer reformatted a few months ago because I trusted someone I shouldn't have (chalk that up to lessons learned) and changed the password.

I usually look for something on my desk and make it my password (no worries...I will no longer be using this method so tis okay to tell you) so since 8 am this morning I have been sitting here trying to remember it.

Candles? No.
Matches? No.
Pen? Pencil? No. No.

I'm looking all around the room...what is that spot on the wall? Wall? No. Spot? No.

Seashell? No.
Paper Flowers? No.
Straw? No.
Ribbon? No.

Ewww! Its time for me to repaint my toenails! Toenails? No.

Charger? No.
Postcard? No.

I do the puzzle on the back of my cereal box as I weep for my rotten cheesecakes in Cafe World. Cereal? No. Chex? No.

Medicine? No.
Both kids names...forward and backwards? No. No. No. No.

What if the password isn't on my desk anymore because Ive cleaned it off?? I slap my forehead! Forehead? No.

I forward a few Never-Show-Your-Mother pictures to some friends via my phone. Cellphone? No. Cell? No. Phone? No.

Necklace? No.
Earrings? No.

I hear what my imagination believes to be a GIANT CRASH! So thinking I am being taken over by burglars, I put down the cereal box and go see what it was. My razor fell in my shower. Shower? No. Razor? No.

About to pull my hair out at this point I decide to send a S.O.S. email also via my phone (dang, those things come in handy! Don't they??). The recipient of this email calls me and I can actually hear is eyes rolling at me, for I get myself in these messes every now and then. After the speech about writing things down, and using all the options the computer gives you to help you not forget your password, he calms me down. He then gives me a link to a website that will let me download a program onto a CD that will let me reset my password.

I then have to call the ex-bestie, who laughs it up, Har! Har! HAR!! but downloads the program on the CD for me and even runs it over in the rain! And it only cost me a plate of food at dinner time!! Thanks, ex-bestie!

The program runs for 10 minutes then says password not found. Sigh. However, it does allow me on the Internet. And now that we have decided to reformat my computer, I have called in a ticket for my ceiling fan because its noisy (you notice a lot of noises when you are sitting around thinking), I've accepted my kitchen in Cafe World can be cleaned tomorrow, and I was able to blog....I am at peace once again with all my hair intact.

Technology. Cant live without it. Who knew??
