I lost my cellphone on Sunday. Last week my hard-drive went up on me. A month ago I left my Kindle in someone else's car--got it back fortunately. Nevertheless, the lesson is clear--me and tech don't mix. I don't have the sort of brain that can keep track of all this shit. On a tangential note, I'm leaving Facebook too. No fucking way I have 250 friends.

UPDATE:
If I wasn't clear, I'm not buying another cell-phone. I'm fucking done. Besides my e-mail is right on this page. And I answer it. Anyone can get at me.
