Just Another Thursday
Life is going as normal as could be expected. I had class today, came home and had lunch, then picked up the boyfriend after he got off of work. Studying Chinese was also thrown in there somewhere, along with a micro-nap.
My radio took a crap this morning. It's got a flip screen, so it flips down whenever you try to put a CD in. I decided I was going to put in a CD while taking the boyfriend to work. The screen went down like normal, but the radio itself made some crazy ass clicking sounds. He decides he's going to take it apart later and tells me not to touch it. Cool, I can handle that. I drop him off at work and go on about my business.
About three hours later I leave for class. Out of curiosity, I pushed the button to switch it to radio. It worked. Fabulous! Suddenly the screen folds down into the proper position. Stupid me thought that it had fixed itself (which it has done before), so I tried to put a CD in.
Same stuck door, same clicking. Shite.
I go on to class with the radio in the broken position and went in class.
I come back out of class and start to head home and it fixes itself again. This time I left it alone.
Boyfriend is outside now trying to repair it. We're hoping it needs to just be reset. Thank goodness that we used to own a car audio shop and he knows what he's doing. The stock price for it, through the shop, was $500, meaning it's about double that retail, maybe even $1200. I don't want to spend that much on a new radio. I'd be happy as long as it plays normal CDs. Competition setup would be something entirely different, but we haven't been to competition for a few years.
I was searching through here last night and found my old myO site. It's amazing to think how much I've changed since I made that original account in 2005. My social circle isn't as wide, and I'm back in school. It's always wild to look back.
If anyone still pays attention to this thing, how the heck have you been? This place seems so dead, I've been searching for more friends here. I'm not fond of the new site so I'm going to stick to my guns until they shut this place down. That will be a sad day.
