Revenge of the CPU and a Broken CD

If they could keep still at any other time other than while driving, I'd have doubts that they belonged to me, or at least I'd have doubts that they were once attached to me. My habit of not keeping my legs still came back to haunt and hit me right where it hurts the most today - my left kneecap, probably after the CPU had had enough of abuse all these years with my consistent non-intentional kicking.

The CD in all it's broken glory :(
On another unrelated note, a CD that I won in a contest ages ago just broke after having a bad, bad fall. I attempted calling all the kings men and horses although I realised that it was a lost cause, but like Humpty Dumpty, the CD could not be put back together again. Of course the kings men and their horses never arrived to my rescue, because I don't know any kings.

I won the CD after answering a question on the cable music channel via e-mail, as I was strangely fixated with the band REM back then after hearing their song Shiny Happy People - slightly more than ten years after it was released. Just my luck, the CD didn't have the song I wanted so badly. Sigh. I suppose after all these years, I was just attached to it, that when it broke the way it did, I felt something break inside of me. After all, it probably was the first CD I ever won, or even ever owned.

  3. I am still an REM fan - I feel some loyalty since they are an Athens (Georgia) band and I went to the university there.

  6. SAW: I still am too, in a way... but maybe just not as big a fan as I was back in 2001 - 2005

    Nick: Yes, they can, especially when they get flung out of their covers! And thanks

  8. I doubt it was meant to be a feel good song, though. Funny thing is REM hated the song, which was why they didn't put it in this particular CD.

  10. Tell me about it... but any CD of mine that received that fate would have caused misery because they're all memorable in some way. Oh well...
