Breaking my back

Breaking my back

Yesterday we went out into the woods to take some photos and to also try out taking photos of the river with the shutter open for a second to get a nice silk shot, but on the way we found an old rope swing. Jo and Lauren both had a go on it (but just using it as a boring swing) So me being me had to step it up a notch. I held the branch in my hand and ran as fast as I could knowing as soon as the rope became taut it would flick me up in the air, but as soon as it did I heard a snap (the kind you hear from an old mans hip on a winters morning) and before I knew it I was flung up (legs up in the air and head facing down) and landed right on my neck. The girls said I didn’t move for a few seconds but as soon as I knew what happened I couldn’t breath and the only thing I could do was make a horrible groaning sound which I have labelled the death rattle. Some how I had crushed my fingers under my head, fucked my ribs and bent my back the wrong way. Even today a day later I can’t move it, I couldn’t even put my socks on this morning.

The only good thing out of it all was the fact Jo managed to take photos of the whole thing so I’ve uploaded it on the net for your enjoyment.

What a fucking day!

Larry David

What a fucking day! (Well a week and a half ago, but I’ve not been able to get online… detials for this are below) For all of today I have felt like Larry David stuck in an episode of Curb your Enthusiasm (Apart from every time I fucked something up I didn’t get the cool theme music). Everything I have touched has turned to shit. It all started around 2 o’clock at work, I have a 4 gig pen drive I use every day that has some very useful programs to aid me with my work. After trying to turn my pen into a bootable flash drive I managed to corrupt the pen (along with months of work). I then went to our Data Center to load some tapes ready to back the servers up, one of the drives was not playing ball and I popped my fingers in the drive to see if anything was hiding in there but in doing so snapped some plastic thats connected to a spring. So after a quick flick of my finger the tape drive managed to eat its self and in doing so fucked both the drive and the tape.

After all this going off there was a good part to the day, Some one at work gave me a AMD processor so once I got home I was happy to swap my AMD X2 5200 for a higher model, but little did i know it was a total different CPU to was it was packaged in. After finding this out I thought not a problem, I can pop my CPU back in and carry on playing on my pc. Then came the pain… windows errors left right and center. In the end I couldn’t see a problem so put it down to the CPU not being install proberly, so I opened up my pc and took the Processor back out to find I had bent the fucking pins on my fucking £110 Processor rendering my computer useless.

So I’m stuck without a PC for 2 weeks until I get paid, and a soon as I do im off to my local computer store to act like a kid in a candy store.
