Sometimes, I discover somethings which were right in front of me: and I never figured it out.
It's those Eureka Moments that I'm gonna write about.
1) I have a laptop since August 2006; and I discovered on 13th October 2008 that my laptop has an inbuilt mike. Damn. I could have talked with so many people on mike instead of wasting money on those damn phone bills. Damn damn damn.
Positive side of the story: Yay!! I'll have someone to talk to even at 1 in the morning when I'm bored. Yay!! I can chat with my sis!! Yay!! I end up talking only 10,000 words a day(minimum): now I can talk 10,000 words at night too(minimum)!
2) How did I discover it? Don't you dare laugh: The other person called me up on gtalk to make me hear a song, and I was oblivious to the fact that the other person can hear me. I was happily abusing another person who was irritating me; and abusing my laptop for being so slow. Suddenly, the other person messages me on gtalk: stop saying 'shit'.
I gaped at the laptop screen.
Then, I understood. My laptop had an in built mike.
3) But where was it? I was talking on the mike, and the other person could hear me; but I didn't know where to talk. I felt the mike was under the laptop. I tilted my poor, poor laptop and started speaking on it.
The genius at the other end remarked. They wouldn't be stupid enough to place a mike under the laptop. Right?
The icing on the cake.Err. laptop, I mean: We started talking about mikes (typing, not talking) and the conversation jumped to web cams. Of course, I have a web cam at home, but I had never seen a web cam on any laptop. So, my friend just generally mentioned if I had a webcam, I would be having a mike too.
And yours truly over reacted. (why?why? Is this the reason why I didn't get Rahul Dravid and i can't get Ranbir Kapoor now?) I was tilting my laptop on all angles possible trying to find the mike, so I was distracted. But. I can't forgive myself for being so dumb.
OMG. Do I have a webcam also????? :O
The worst part: One day after this web cam (mis)adventure happens, I saw a webcam on a friend's laptop. I gazed at my reflection and wondered. Why. why. why......
4) P.s- I still don't know where my mike is. But I still talk.
I'll write more of these Eureka Moments later.
p.p.s- Credit goes to Peter for giving those dumb blonde moments the tag of 'Eureka Moments'And no more posting for the next 2 weeks. Exam time is back. Sniff sniff.
