My ASUS Laptop Screen is Busted... but It's OK

NOOOOOOOOO!!! NOT LUCY!!!!!!!!!!  =o(
Hey there.  You know what happened after recording an episode of the Get a Life Podcast?  My laptop screen broke.  Literally, minutes after the show.  I set my laptop down, went to grab something to drink, came back to a broken screen.  My 2 youngest (3 and 7) were running around, near my laptop, so when I questioned them about it, naturally, they pointed the finger at each other.  lol  I held it in.  I'll admit that I was pretty upset and I probably reacted a lot better than what was expected.  The kids know that the laptop is Daddy's life.  lol  Accidents happen, though.  I'm not mad... not anymore, lol,  but man was I feeling down.  I practically live off the damn thing.  I do all of my online work on my laptop and to have a busted screen was a huge bummer.  Especially since I feel pretty good about the work that I've recently done.  It pained me to think that my computer could be out of commission until I got it fixed!!!  But never fear!  A replacement screen is on it's way!  YAY!!!  I'm thinking of creating a "how to replace your screen" type post.  Create a video and all that good stuff.  I'm thinking about it.  The screen gets here tomorrow and if I'm up for it, I'll do a quick how to replace tutorial.  It'll be the first one I do so bare with me if it sucks.  lol

Anyways, I wasn't going to bother posting about the busted screen.  I kind of figured that it's just a blip in my timeline, but then I realized that I haven't done much in personal blog posts and decided that this is a perfect opportunity to get a personal post up.  At the very least, a post to let you guys know what I've been up to.  First and foremost, I'm excited about the podcast.  I really enjoy doing it and I definitely have "the bug."  Brian and I have good chemistry (I like to think so, at least) and our shows have been pretty smooth and I'm sure that as we continue to do more, the more intune we'll be with each other's mannerism and become a well oiled machine!  Our show is only in it's second month and already we have already had some pretty awesome guests on our show.  I've been promoting the hell out of it and am trying to get it on as many outlets as possible.  I still haven't been able to get it in the iTunes directory, but you can subscribe to it on iTunes by using this link.

I'm also excited about being a part of the Anker Power User program.  The Anker High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse is pretty cool and I can't wait to get to try and review some of their upcoming stuff!  I've always been the "tech" guy in the family and I just love to play with new adult toys!  Er... that came out wrong.  I like to play with exciting gadgets!  Uh...  You know what I mean!  lol  I'm hoping that I can build additional relationships with other tech companies and have some of their awesome products on display here and possibly have tech giveaways for you guys.  Speaking of relationships...

I was hoping that a business relationship I had with the Nintendo PR people would materialize into great things for you, the readers, but that is currently on hold due to some unforseen setbacks.  No worries, though.  I'm going to start from scratch and see if I can build a relationship with a new contact there.  I was really hoping to be able to obtain promo items from them to giveaway to you guys.  I know it's a little ambitious of me to think it could happen, but hey, you got to reach for the stars, right?

So there ya go!  That's what I've been up to the last couple of months.  I'll try to get more updates for you guys as things develop.  I know... I'm pretty bad at that.  It's one of the many things that I am working on to make myself a better person and this site a better place.  Thanks again, friends, for sticking with me throughout the years.  Trust me... this ride is only going to get better.  Later!
