Ah, technology. You’ve got to love it.
My laptop has been running slower than a particularly lazy snail, one who worships the lifestyle of a sleeping sloth.
Heck, even typing all of this out is like something out of some bad slow motion effect. I type the words out and then watch as seconds, many seconds, later the words slowly appear on screen.
So, getting to the crux of this particular problem. I went to uninstall some pointless programs, only for Windows to then tell me, and get this, that the Windows Installer has not been properly installed.
Now I’m just going from poorly worded Google search to overly technical Google search hoping for some answer.
Ye gods, that was a spicy vindaloo.
And me with no milk or anything. I fear water at this moment would just boil away on contact.
i refuse to play the uno you-can-put-down-a-card-you-just-picked up rule, it’s utter rubbish and banned in my presence.
Well you are welcome at any Uno game I ever play then. Unfortunately none of my friends live by this belief, and so Uno isn’t often played around these here parts.
Rules: Just insert your answers to the questions below. Tag some people

As for tagees, see other ask related post.
Tag meme! I was tagged in by betweentimeand42
Post five things about yourself and then tag ten of your followers.
Fact The First: I am quite opposed to the game Uno. More specifically one rule in the game of Uno. The rule being:
That if you pick up a card, because you had nothing to put down, then you may put down that very card you picked up that turn.
Which I think is balderdash (not the game of the same name). But I’m probably being pernickity
Fact two-o: I just bought some new tea, even though I really don’t need any more, nor do I really have the room to house any more.
Fact 3: I’m planning a Friday the 13th party for the next time that date comes around. So I am also looking for a variety of interesting superstitions to subvert for science, or for fun. Whichever comes first.
Fact for: Winter is over, and it never really felt like it even began. I feel quite ripped off.
Hawaii 5.0: My phone, when playing music, has developed a slight stutter from time to time. This amuses me.
