I'm not very happy here. I cut myself pretty badly while making dinner tonight and I've been bleeding for a while now.

My computer monitor seems to be dying on me because the tinting on it has gone all fucked up now and it's really annoying me. I have no idea how to fix it. I've checked the cables and plugs and everything seems to be the way it should be except the monitor is not working properly.

While whallowing in self pity, i'm going to watch a movie with my roommate.

When you are walking down the street, do you ever hope that a car will hit you?

Yea, sometimes...

No, but sometimes I wish a car would hit you, Pat.

I'm looking, but nothing seems like the answer. I doubt there is an answer, really. Only distractions. God, this sounds so depressing.

I'm really not doing that bad. I am really bummed out by this stupid monitor thing, my finger really hurts from the cut that I got and there are a bunch of things running around in my mind that are bothering me, but really I'm not doing that bad. I just need to be the responsible person that I don't want to be. That's the biggest thing, I think.

My monitor crapped out on me in the same way last summer. It was a Viewsonic I got in 1997. I replaced it with a cheap used monitor from here.

Sometimes when I'm on my bike I hope a car will hit me lightly so that they'll freak out and drive more carefuly while I remain unhurt, but I don't think that is what you were looking for.

Ooh, that is pretty cool. I actually have one spare monitor that is the same size that Ashley was borrowing, but that she won't be borrowing from me in a day or two. She wanted it because it was larger then hers, but with this one crapping out on me, I am just going to have to grab that one instead. Sucks for her more then me. I'll have to keep that Surplus store in mind, though. I also have a smaller monitor that could work, but I'd rather keep using my big monitor.

I'm not really sure what I'm looking for with the car question.

I hope a car hits me rather frequently. Well, only if it's a car being driven by a person who makes at least $60k a year and has good insurance. Hello easy money. Then I think `oh gad that's such a repulsive American lawsuit-happy attitude' and feel slightly disgusted.

When I start to feel disgusted by thoughts like that, I then just think of the money again and I don't feel so disgusted anymore.

It also helps to think that the money is either coming from some bastard insurance company or someone who can probably afford to pay you off.

Does your monitor flicker pink by any chance?

Re:
It's not. It's got grey lines on the screen that line up with whatever picture is on the screen at the time. I think this means the tube is going out or something.
