I had an external hard drive and kept all my music on it and pictures, im a photographer so my pictures are important. i had some online but not most of them. every xmas eve we have all our relatives from out of town come over and have a huge dinner. well needless to say my relatives are big eaters and after dinner one by one they files into the bathroom and emptied there tanks. later that night we had a terrible clog in the basement where i keep my computer and external hard drive and lets just say the hard drive got the worst of it and was rendered useless. needless to say i wish i had norton online backup because i lost my pictures and about 10 gigs of music.
A few days after an awesome trip to Japan with my boyfriend, I uploaded photos from the camera to my laptop while he cooked dinner, and then deleted the files from the SD card [to save space, right?]. As soon as I pulled the SD card out, we heard this increasingly loud roaring sound. The house began to shake violently and then I blacked out.
When I woke up, I looked down to see that I was wearing this goofy pink dress in a barren, locked room. It was a really strange, confusing, and frightening situation! Suddenly, this massive DINOSAUR or something that looked like a dinosaur burst into the room, looked at me cowering in fear, burst out in this menacing monstrous laughter, then left as quickly as he’d entered.
At some point, I began to hear shouting and all sorts of ruckus going on outside the door. I pressed myself to the door to hear better, but had to back away because something outside was heating up fast! It sounded like something big was jumping all around. Every time it landed, the ground shook. Suddenly, there was a hard THUD that shook the entire room, and then there was silence. Moments later, I heard a key unlocking the door, and then my boyfriend came in wearing this ridiculous red plumber’s outfit. It was so strange and wondrous and relieving all at once! We embraced, and then felt and heard the world shaking all over again. The world went dark.
We woke up back at home, which looked like an earthquake had ran through [earthquake insurance finally pays off!]. I glanced over and saw that my laptop was in a wreck of pieces. There were a bunch of hammers/mallets surrounding it. I was like WTH?!?! We don’t even own any hammers! Reminiscing back on that whole event, I think it really would’ve been nice to have Norton’s online backup to recover the life I had on my laptop. It would’ve been nice if anyone ever believed my story too, but no one ever does.
