Yeah, I struggle.
So, Alaska is dry. Like, super crazy dry. This makes the static electricity in our house, and others, rampant. I can't turn on a light without getting a shock. The nasty old carpets and big stinky couches don't help much. When I was pregnant I got a really bad shock, like from Brian through me to the computer, and it hurt. The computer froze, and I was suuuuuper scared that I had cooked the baby. Turns out you can't cook babies that way, but the computer froze - but did not die.
Since then we keep that static spray in stock in our house, but it smells like glue and the effects only last a few hours. Not awesome.
SO, knowing all of this, the other day I intended to meet with Jillian and get some shred going. Since our tv remote is missing, I have to use the input buttons on the side of the tv. I touch it and , BAM supershock! Like worse than the babycooker. And then the tv starts turning half way on, then dying. Again and again and again. Pressing buttons does nothing. Un-plugging it and plugging it back in does nothing. Apparently there are no reset buttons on tvs?!? (I'm serious, I looked. Pitiful)
So? We upgraded. It was time. We went from a 26 incher to 32, woopwoop! I have no pictures on this computer, but I'm working on it.
You should also know that in the almost 4 years I have been married, I have had to buy four new televisions. I've never shocked one before though, but apparently we just don't get on very well.
