Hours on hours

The ever rotating loading symbol will be my death.
That or the incredibly awful excuse for a connection that UT calls 'wifi'
Let it be known that this is only 'wifi' in the loosest sense
Refresh, refresh, refresh.
My computer took vacation
paid in my time
without my permission.
Probably off in an Icelandic wonderland,
Or on the beaches of Greece.
But it is most definitely not here.
In his place
a hunk of metal
incapable of intelligent code
only able to dance the death circle of loading around a non-existent bon fire of my hopes
and dreams.
While I invest all my willpower in not
this useless metal hunk
at a wall.
Because then my computers
"VACAY" may have
an indefinite ending.
