Update: Turns out I still can’t get on to the wireless network at home. My below post was done at work and obviously prematurely. My laptop isn’t the problem it’s the network itself. It may take a while for me to figure it out. I’m currently using my backup dial-up connection to post this. But, it’s really slow so, I won’t use it often. Hopefully I can get this taken care of ASAP.
So, I was having some interent problems on my laptop. Initially I was having trouble connecting. In thinking I could poke around and fix it, I ended up making it worse. So, after a small plea and a pathetic look, I got the IT guy at my work to look at it and fix it. So, I am now back in business and it’s a celebration of Van Damme proportions!
He’s got some funky moves in his little spandex getup there!
Since I had a few days without interent access at home it gave me time to do other less fun things, like cleaning. Not that I’m a dirt mongrel, but I started cleaning drawers and cupboards that normally don’t get cleaned as often. Speaking of, why does it seem everyone has a junk drawer in their kitchen? Every place I’ve lived I had a kitchen junk drawer and my mom has one in her house too. Mind you, I didn’t clean it out because it’ll go back to being filled with junk in no time. I just thought I’d ponder the reason for it’s existence.
Anyways, while cleaning I always come across something odd that I own. I like having weird things and I’ll often buy them for the strange factor alone. I came across one of those odd yet cool things recently. My Spiderman chain/crime deterrent.
Sure, you see a cool looking Spiderman because, let’s face it, Spiderman is alwayscool! But, alas my dear readers, this is also a form of protection for myself. You see, I’m an on the go gal who often travels alone, drives alone, and for the next 2 weeks, lives alone. So, I need something to protect myself in the face of crime, but that can also accessorize any outfit. I know…now you’re thinking “But, how can that flashy yet stylish chain help, DC?” Does it’s coolness distract attackers therefore giving me a chance to escape? No. Do I throw it at my attacker’s eye rendering him blind so that I can make a run for it? No. The answer lies below.
That’s right. Hidden in what appears to be Spidey’s feet lies a knife or ‘shank’ as we call it in the joint. So in the event of a potential attack, all I have to do is clutch my Spiderman while begging for mercy without the criminal knowing that I am in fact reaching for the blade. Then after about 500 stab wounds (the blade is only about 3 inches long) my possible attacker will now be begging me for mercy! Once my fingers un-cramp from having to hold this knife tightly so I wouldn’t lose it in my attackers torso, I can dial the police and get help. I don’t need any pepper spray or guns. Oh, no…not when I have the Spidey crime protection unit! So, bring on the criminals, me and my Spidey will be ready with some vigilante justice!
