The ugly has returned

Today was mostly bad, very bad. The good news is that it had nothing to do with my knitting!

I am having technology issues, which are in my opinion the worse kind. When some thing, any thing is wrong with a piece of technology, whatever it is, you are slapped in the face with how much you rely on it. Our current printer is my husbands from before we were together. We have been together a while so this should tell you that the printer is a pretty good one.(Technology is to him what yarn is to me)

Well the printer refused to print, I checked it and replaced the yellow INK cartridge. It still wouldn’t work. Then I realized it was something called the PRINTHEAD that needed to be replaced. Not only had I never heard of a printhead, I had no clue where in the effing printer to find the damn thing.

Long story short you can only get the thing on the internet. I order it, get it the next day thanks to Staples, insert it, and wait for the flashing light to stop. It didn’t. I check the printer, now the black printhead needs to be replaced.


I want to throw it against the wall. I need to print business cards to include with my Sampler contributions. I need the damn printer to work NOW. I got to plan B. Print at someone else’s home, but no one has the program I used to create the business card! I go to OfficeMax and get ink for the other printer (my old one), rush home, rip open the package… it’s the wrong one. Now I finally allow myself to cry. The hubby returned it on his way to work. I’m certain it’s the right one. Technology likes him. =(
