oh for a cd burner

Every now and then I am faced with questions of great importance, questions which force me to pause and consider my actions, questions like: Should I blog about the stupid things I do for friends and (potentially) stranges alike to read?
The answer to this particular question is: Why stop now?

So stupid thing #6820 that I've done recently was this:
I bought a cd burner.
Now this seems like a perfectly sensible thing to do. My hard drive is getting a bit full, and I'm sure the 2000+ pictures I have on there aren't helping. Also, it would be nice to have a backup of stuff in case my computer ever crashes. So the solution: a CD burner. I've been thinking about this for awhile, and remember one of my friends mentioning how he'd bought one last year. Therefore, somewhat impulsively, I headed to 3C the most popular electronics store in Taiwan and perused the selection of CD burners. I was pleasantly suprised by the reasonable prices, and even bought some blank cds to go with it. As I was walking home, I was thinking I could blog about how I got a CD burner AND 25 blank cds for less than $40.00 Canadian. My stupidity didn't really sink in until I opened the box and pulled out the instruction book. The instruction book which shows you how to install the burner into your computer. How to physically install the burner into your computer. It was then and ONLY then that it dawned on me that I have a laptop.

TO DO:
  • return useless cd burner
  • look for external cd burner
  • have another cup of coffee
  • plan lessons
