Yesterday was brutal. It started off badly when my motorcycle would not start and pretty much went downhill from there. When I got to work I arrived to find that the lights in the office didn’t work. At first I thought maybe we were celebrating another Earth Hour but then I realized no, the lights just didn’t work. The batteries on my wireless keyboard and mouse decided that if the lights didn’t have to work then they should not be required to work either. It was like every piece of technology in my life decided to go on strike. At first I didn’t understand what was going on but then after looking at the calendar I quickly figured it out. No Diamondbacks game, no high-tech; it was just that simple. Thankfully though all my geek gear got it out of its system and I was back to normal. Well, as normal as can be expected considering that I am a diehard Diamondbacks fan.
