Capturing a Massive Fail

Last night, my iPhone was acting weird. The touch screen wasn’t responding; it wouldn’t load up any app I selected… I didn’t have the patience for it to reboot though — I didn’t realize it was on the verge of a massive fail until I was getting into bed. 

But I should’ve rebooted. 

My alarm clock is on my iPhone… and it went off once, without lighting up like it usually does. I hazily hit the snooze button, and the next thing I know, it’s 30 minutes later… I almost threw my iPhone across the room. 

My iPhone alarm NEVER fails me!!! 

Sadly… today, not only did my iPhone alarm fail me, but my entire iPhone, upon immediate power-down… would.not.reboot.

Well, I suppose it did reboot. It just displayed a scary little iTunes icon with an arrow pointing to a USB cable.

Oh yeah. My day was off to a fucktacular start.

I handed my iPhone to my computer savvy hubs whispering… help. 

And as he plugged it in, he asked me when I last performed a sync.


My iPhone crashed for some reason… and he had to do a complete reset.

My heart immediately sank thinking about the countless pictures I’ve snapped since the last sync.

Then I realized that I had emailed most of the pictures I had taken recently because of the Week In My Life series. If I was in close proximity to Melissa at Adventuroo, I’d probably drive to her house just to make-out with her for a minute to thank her for forcing me to not only snap pictures, but to record it all for a week. Not only did I post most of the pictures I snapped on my iPhone onto my blog, but I also had them saved onto my computer via email!

Of course, if I was smart, I would’ve used my Nikon to snap better quality photos I wouldn’t have had to worry about losing off of my iPhone. If I was even smarter, I would’ve plugged my iPhone in daily to unload the pics and I could’ve avoided this massive fail altogether… but, hey, that all takes time, time I didn’t always have. And ya know what, even though I’ll probably never see some of the photos I’ve snapped over the last couple months, I’ll take what I can get… including the tough lesson to backup my shit.

    HA! Thanks, Mel. I blame Zuckerburg. I had been having issues with the facebook app, and I was deleting it and getting ready to reinstall it, when my iPhone starting flipping out.

    Oh man, this happened to me before. And I’m still not backing the damn thing up properly. That stupid fraking facebook app. Hate it. Glad you have your pics from last week!! Going to sync my phone now. Thanks for the reminder.
