My old laptop died Friday night, that big blue steaming piece of shit has been a huge pain in the ass lately. I was greeted with the dreaded blue screen basically telling me the computer committed suicide. The hard drive groaned and the computer couldn't boot up anymore. Beating the crap out it didn't help as I'm in need of computer anger management and I was more than happy to give it the boot. No more lines on the screen, no more crashing and no more having to stack 5 books on top of the power cord plug as the pin had a loose connection. For the past couple of days, I've been in the dark in regards to what's happening in Steelhead Alley. I was hoping I could hold out until Christmas or after it to snag a great deal on a computer. But, I had no choice as I couldn't bear the thought of going a couple of weeks without watching porn and stupid Youtube videos. Last night, I manage to score a great deal on a Dell laptop and it was Merry Christmas to me.
On the fishing front it was a nice weekend as I meet a frequent reader of my blog. I forgot his name (bad habit) but we had a great time chatting and catching fish. I guess that one of a kind purple Kingpin gets noticed. I was also happy to finally sell my Bob James to a young fella who turned to the dark side. I gave him a great deal and he was looking forward to using it tomorrow. The following day, I fished the V for the first time and I was quickly reminded what the V stands for - vacated (hardly any fish), vanquished (felt defeated) and vapid (dull). Those words pretty well summed up the day as I caught a couple of fish and was spared going home with a skunk around my neck.
I hate the V and I heard the river I fished yesterday was giving up insane numbers of fish.
