Techno Geek I am not
Oh! I am soooo frustrated right now!
I'm trying to get all the SNORT prizes ready to go and I'm hung up on the Pigs in Love CD. I designed this loverly color label and my color printer was out of ink. Of course, it was!
So I go down to Office Max and trade my right arm for new ink cartridges (have to have TWO—black and color—for my printer). I come home and install them.
And blam! The printer explodes.
Well, not really. But it won't work. The cartridges slam from one side of the carrier to the other with g-force velocity. And it won't print.
So I think, okay. DH can probably fix this as soon as he gets home from running errands today. I'll just get the CDs ready and burned.
Uhmmm, well, I can't figure out how to do that. I'd planned to buy the songs from iTunes and burn them to a CD so it's all perfectly legal. And.
Now playing on my iPod: Ha! Did you really think my iPod was working?
Thanks to my dear friend SANDRA, I have purchased the music and burned the Pigs in Love CDs. (What would I do without her?!?)
I still haven't fixed the stupid printer problem. DH did "fix" it but the new ink is just as light as the older stuff. So now I'm thinking I gave up an arm for nothing and it's not the ink, but the way my Mac talks to my printer.
And my new Virtual PC won't recognize the color printer. Again. Ahrrrgh!
Now playing on my iPod: the Pigs In Love CD!
