Winter Blogfest: Chelsea Dorsette

Just in time for the holidays, I broke my Kindle Fire! I thought that I was obsessed and overly attached to my cell phone, but upon my Kindle breaking, I now realize that I am just as obsessed with it!  As some of us tend to reflect about ourselves and our lives at the end of the year, perhaps I should give some consideration and self examination as to why my phone is constantly hermetically sealed to my hip and I am a fish out of water without my Kindle! Just the other day I had to find something that is only on my Kindle and was stopped dead in my tracks and momentarily horrified that I would not be able to get what I needed. That is until I remembered that my husband has a Kindle. Racing upstairs to his man cave, I downloaded what I needed and Hallelujah… I was back in business!  I have a bad habit sometimes at night of listening to music on my Kindle with earphones while falling asleep. Inevitably, when I fall asleep the Kindle falls off the bed crashing to the floor and pulling the earphones and charging plug out. Seems that all of those tumbles off the bed caused damage to the recharging port on the devise and it could no longer take a charge. Ergo unusable.

Happily the holidays, my husband and Amazon have saved the day! As luck would have it, I had not decided on what I wanted for Christmas yet. When my husband saw my pitiful expression and obvious distress about my Kindle situation, he took charge and called Amazon. I guess the Amazon representative took pity on my sad story as well and worked out a deal with my husband to get me plugged back into the world at a discounted price. Don’t you love a happy ending? The only question that remains, is will I wait till Christmas to open it??? Merry Christmas to you all, especially if something breaks!

  5. Amazon to the rescue! LOL. I spaz at the idea of being without Internet, my phone, or my laptop. I keep some new print books lying around for when the devices need charging. 🙂

  6. I have had a similar experience with my netbook. It has been my only home computer for the past 2 years and this month the charging cable started acting wonky. I had to fiddle with it to get it angled just right to work. And then no amount of fiddling worked. I went to the store to try to replace it and found that a new charging cable was almost half the price that I paid for the netbook. That didn’t seem right to me. SO, right now I’m using a borrowed laptop–it’s too heavy, gets too hot, has Deep Freeze on it so I can’t bookmark anything or keep any login settings…it’s a real pain. SO, my predicament is: do I buy something new for myself (a netbook) or buy a replacement cable for my old one?
