Struck Dead By Technology

For various reasons, I'm up late tonight, unable to sleep, and began obsessively clicking on my "stumbleupon" button in the upper right hand corner of my toolbar.

Suddenly, I was brought up short with a pop-up window stating, "Unknown error - database failure."

I continued obsessively clicking on the button, and continued to get the stumbleupon error message.

"Oh my god," I thought, "How will I surf the internet?"

Dude, I would have freaked out a little. I don't Stumble every day, but when I do I usually spend at least an hour clicking that damned button. If my Stumble button broke...oh, I'd be so very sad.

Heck, it's how I discovered My life was not complete without it :)

It was definately one of those surreal experiences. It's gotten to the point where I'll have to remind myself, in older movies, that the reason the plot's like this is because nobody has cell phones...
