I dreamed last night

That I had a job driving a van that involved parking on a college campus....and I parked my car (the Galant) in a parking garage and had to ask co-worker to come help me find it.

One wonders if this had anything to do with someone last night asking about my car getting towed.

Night before last I had a very short dream that consisted of me going outside and my car not being where I left it.

This place is making me old and crazy.

An Abbreviated Converstation with HP Support

(me): I have an out of warranty device that's bricked. I've tried all the un-bricking methods you offer. How much would it cost to repair the unit?

(they): We're sorry that you are having an issue, please try {all the same stuff he already said he tried}. As your device is outside of the one-year warranty period, the charge for replacing it will be of $385. If you wish to go ahead and process the repair, please contact us again by replying to this email.

(me): Let me get this straight....your were {badgrammar spawned of incredulity} selling this EXACT SAME device for $149.99 BRAND NEW. And it will cost *$385* to replace??

(they): Unfortunately yes, HP has determined that the repair cost of this unit is of $385 dollars. I'm sorry we cannot provide an {badgrammar caused by employment at an ineffectively run corporation} specific reason why HP closed the repair cost at this value. We understand that it is high based in the final price that you have payed. Sadly, there are no discounts or exceptions that we can apply. At the same time, HP is no longer selling extended warranties for webOS devices

(me):  :-|


I am currently fighting the urge to go get a 20 piece. I blame Burger King.

It may have actually been a decade since I've eaten an McNugget.

Trying to keep it that way.

re: "time"

"Time, you can't see it, you can't weigh it, you can't measure in a laboratory... It's a subjective sense of becoming what we are/will become..."

"Clocks measure time -"

"No, they measure themselves. The objective measure of a clock is another clock."
