|11:29 am - crap|
so my phone is dead. i was out yesterday at my last shift ever with josh, we're walking back to his house, and this gigantoid storm starts up out of nowhere. POURING rain, like i could not have been wetter if i was at the bottom of a lake, i could barely see where i was going. there was even hail! hail hurts!
but the moral of the story is now my phone is dead. apparently being in my pocket in the rain was too much for its sensitive diodes.
np: Four Tet - Div-Orce Series Vol. 1 - 01 - Both When I Am Alone and We Both Are
i do not know what a diode is. i am not surprise you do. see you saturday night, i was thinking of starting at 8 instead of 9.
i actually don't know what a diode is, just something related to electronics that has a cute name
take the battery or whatever out and put both pieces in a jar of uncooked white rice. seriously. in like 4 hours it will dry out the phone.
i've done it. it really works.
this just happened to my phone, out in big time rain today. trying it as i type!!!
i dropped my phone in a water fountain, and left it there for awhile. so it was totally soaked and it still ended up working. i was amazed.

I once ran my phone through a washing machine.
Take it apart. let it dry. maybe try that rice trick. If it still doesnt work after you put it back together, go to a retailer of whatever company you get service through and have them put a new battery in it. That's all my phone needed.
saturday night at 9, red fez be there!!!
You seem to have really bad luck with rain storms. =(
yeah i'm thinking about just not going outside anymore. it seems to end badly
