Bad Luck: I'm just lucky that way

I'll start off this new year with a new direction for my web journal. I've been keeping a journal on my site since 1995, but this marks the first time I've embraced "blogging" as others know it. I'll focus on a few topics of interest and how they affect my life: Depression, ADD, Chronic Motor Tic Disorder, Insomnia, Sleep Apnea, and for fun Good Luck and Bad Luck. Maybe somebody out there needs to know they are not alone when dealing with some of these issues. Maybe somebody just wants to feel better about themself by reading about the mess that is my world. Maybe they find what I have to say entertaining. We'll see. In the meantime, I'll start off with a brief entry on a favorite subject of mine: Bad Luck.

Don’t you hate it when electronics expire just outside of warranty? My Canon ZR70 decided it liked my home movie so much today that it refused to let me remove the cassette. I think it was confused because it continually told me to remove the cassette but wouldn’t actually eject it no matter how much I begged. From what I hear I’ll have to send it in to be serviced, and the best part of it all is that the warranty expired a hair over one week ago. So I’m going to be shelling out $60 or more just to have a technician eject the cassette. Just wonderful. That'll teach me to not buy electronics from places that don't offer service agreements. Yeah, I'm one of those people who actually like those things. Electronics always fail on me in bizarre and unusual ways.
