eumelia: (er... what?)
Elphaba is a lovely, lovely machine. Is fact she's an extraordinary machine, Windows 8 notwithstanding.

She did, however, like a cranky baby lock me out.

I mean, okay, maybe I shouldn't have changed the default password of her login at 1 am when I was knackered and then not remember it when I woke up the next day.


Yeah, that probably has something to do with it.

So, yeah. I got her Friday afternoon and by Saturday morning I was locked out without anyway of getting back in.

As luck would have it, bff and her husband are software and hardware people when it comes to computers and they managed to save Elphaba.

Granted she returned to factory setting and the little I had downloaded was wiped, but it was all good, because I could get into my computer baby again.

And yet, there was much anxious tweeting and gesticulating to family members about my conundrum, because really? Forgetting my password on the first day of acquiring a new computer? Just... it's so silly.

Still, no one seemed to judge me too harshly. I was the one doing the self flagellation thing.

That ordeal is over though and I've taken precautions to make sure it doesn't happen again.

May you never be locked out of your extraordinary machine, because if you do, it requires a mind wipe!

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on me...an adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
