It's not a screen contrast issue, I know that resets when you replace the batteries. And I even dug the old batteries out of the trash and re-installed them and nothing. Man! I don't know what else it could be, other than it decided to go kaput on me. ARGH. Aside from the fact that I am totally sentimentally attached to that calculator, those things are expensive! And they don't even make regular old TI-83s anymore. Because I am old. ;;
I AM NOW SAD.
In other news, I am also slated to do some kind of absurdly long run today. Somewhere between 6-10 miles, we'll see how it goes. The weather is looking slightly threatening, but it does that in Florida. Sometimes it means something, sometimes not. I suppose in about an hour, I will find out! At least I have new shoes, finally. Yay, my knees will hurt less.
