I have two questions that I would like to ask the universe at large, or at least the bloggers that be.

1. Why do electrical devices hate me?
I've been through a mess of cellphones. I'm hard on them. I've come to expect it. You name it, I've done it. Dropped it, lost it, glued it shut, cracked the screen, cracked the outside, cooked it, overcharged it, fried the electrics....the only thing I've never done is drop it in the toilet it.

...that is, until this Saturday, where I reached in and pulled it out of its watery grave. It FREAKED OUT. The thing was completely submerged for about 5 seconds or less before I it out, and it would not stop {VIBRRRRRRATIIIING}. I had to take the battery out to make the damn thing shut up. Well, it was pretty dead. I read online that they recommend putting your phone in dry rice to absorb the water. Grandpa thought that if I put it in silica gel, the stuff they put in shoes that say "DO NOT EAT", and which you can also use in powder form to dry plants, it would dry. Bingo, the things works better than ever after a day in the crap. Go Grandpa.

Meanwhile, my Macbook is trying to commit suicide, won't boot, has a corrupted hard drvie, a CD stuck in the CD drive, and a bad attitude.

Why can't I accomplish things ahead of time?
This has turned into more than procrastination-it's like there's something physically wrong with me that I can't do any quality work on a project until I'm down to the wire. I guess I should have realized that I'm enough of a drama queen that I thrive on pressure, but honestly, for my stomach's sake, I would rather have a paper written a week before. But whenever I sit down to work, unless it's the night before, I just write crap. WTF, life?!

On the bright side, it's less than one month until I travel to Oklahoma to visit my best, oldest friend. TRAVEL!
