Is anyone out there?
Does anyone miss me?
I'm trapped inside a very old, very slow laptop.
It has nothing on it so I can't do anything – like post recipes ('cause they're not here) or photos ('cause they're not here) or do new photos ('cause I can't upload them).
Please, pity me.
And when you're through pitying me you can be every so slightly happy for me.
My computer died.
Died is kind of a quiet term…..
It went out in a blaze of (what's the opposite of glory?) power. Apparently an excess of electrical current is not in the best interest of motherboards.
No, we don't know what happened.
I thought it was just sick. I took it to hospital on Monday morning. It was already dead.
Fried, I was told. Circuits melded together like an old hippy love-in.
It was not salvageable.
So, pity me for being without a computer this week.
Be ever so slightly happy that I will soon have a new one.
I'd be ecstatically happy had it been a planned event with me able to give it thought, put it in the budget and so forth.
As it is, I'll be a little happy.
If I ever get it.
(He's trying to save my data – yes, I have it backed up, he's just trying to do it the easier way)
Good thing I stocked up on the holiday chocolate.
