Can’t Complete This Action, Something Went Wrong

RECIPE: Salmon with Mango Chimichurri

My computer and my phone have both chosen today to become virtually unusable, so as I type this I’m making the transition from PC and Droid to MacBook Air and iPhone. It’s sort of like how I imagine it would be to learn to use a prosthetic arm after you had to have one amputated due to gout. Except more painful and frustrating (not that I’m feeling dramatic about it or anything).

I’ve already called Jason 4 times almost in tears. At one point I was near suicidal because every time I tried to log in to Tweetdeck to check my Twitter it told me I had the wrong password. I tried every possible password it could be and then I finally just hit the ‘I’m a dummy and I forgot my password, please help me reset it’ link. The final straw was that even that did not work. Tweetdeck kept giving me a message that said, “Can’t complete this action, something went wrong”.

I feel like I should maybe just have that tattooed to my forehead. It feels so appropriate for my life.

Eventually I realized the reason I couldn’t log into Tweetdeck is that I had switched to Hootsuite as my Twitter platform about a year ago.

And I haven’t even had any wine yet today.

Something clearly did go wrong. In my brain. Long ago.

I feel like if I just had last night’s dinner in front of me right now, things might be better. More cheerful at least. It was really good. A quick and easy ‘chimichurri’ over broiled salmon. (I’m not sure what makes a chimichurri a chimichurri, but I think I like chimichurri.)

Let’s not even discuss the scrollpad issue.
