Crisis!...1984 style!

So a crisis struck work today, and I caught me completely untrained and unexpecting.

The typewriter ran out of ribbon!

Realizing, 'oh crap, I have to fix this,' I start scouring the shelves for a replacement. I start pulling boxes that look like they were made when Larry Bird was still a Celtic. Good lord, I can't believe they still have this stuff still.

So then I continue to stare at the machine hoping I will gain insight in how to even open the thing. It's not a far stretch to think that my big eyes have some ESP-like powers.

Thankfully for everyone else in the office, I'm the only child of the 80's.

So after 5 more minutes, I had the ribbon changed and was back to producing the document. (Ya, somethings still aren't in electronic format. But it's okay, I just put up a side ponytail and rock out to early Madonna).

After I had all my work done for the day, I started researching ways to recycle the old technology.

They'll be using soy-based inks when I'm done with them.

Okay, maybe not. But at least there'll be a paper recycling bin. :)
