Red face ever have a blonde moment?

OK, I had recompiled my kernel and rebooted for other reasons, and got the infamous "NTLDR is missing" so for the next 2-3 hours I'm sitting here trying all these different combos of lilo, liloconfig and a bunch of different lilo.conf options and none worked so finally I'm like I'll try install it to a floppy. I stick a floppy in the drive, and I'm like "huh?"... turns out I had an unbootable floppy in the drive... there goes 3 hours I'll never get back

I had some 'friends' put blonde streaks in my hair after falling asleep after a party. Forgot how to walk the following morning, but I think that was from the beer...

My biggest blonde moment was going to Wal-Mart and getting this little green package labeled "Windows XP"

Me? Never! I live a life of graceful perfection, unmarred by the flaws and foibles of lesser mortals!
