It would have been okay if my computer had just crashed in a horrible, horrible way, making it unclear whether I’m ever going to recover any of my data, none of which was backed up.

It would have been okay if my computer had just crashed in a horrible, horrible way and I’d spent the last four days in a Chicago suburb where people said things like, “oh, it’s just two blocks that way” and I started walking and three miles later I still hadn’t gotten there.

But to suffer these things all while staying in a motel where there was no gay porn on the pay-per-view–well, really, it was more than I could bear.

    Some people would say that going on a huge bender that lands you a time zone away in a pornless motel is an overreaction to having made a bad cake. But you and I know better.

    No gay porn?! Jesus, are you going to be okay?

    Don’t you check for these details BEFORE you make the reservation? Five stars my ass, just make sure it has Falcon on Demand.

    Oh, the pain….the pain….

    Oh, and if it makes you feel any better, I’m a network engineer and I don’t back up my personal computer either. When my operating system failed a few weeks ago, I had to take the drive out, put it in an external USB enclosure and back it up that way. *groan*

    anapestic hit the nail on the head.

    I’m sure I’m not the only Chicago reader wondering which of our fabulous suburbs you’ve managed to land in… as well as why you didn’t warn us you were coming, so we could have gotten you the hell out of the suburbs, at least for an evening.

    I’m currently in Sevierville, TN, which consists of Baptists and tourists. Even the Catholic church is hidden here!

    Next time you’re lost and pornless ’round here, give me a call. Certainly reunions with old college friends can’t hold a candle to Falcon on Demand, but I do have a car and could give you a lift “three blocks.”

    I tried to post this before–either it didn’t work or you deleted it. If the latter, delete it again. If the former, disregard this paragraph.

    ‘no gay porn on the pay-per-view’ — priceless.
