Life in a Vacuum

My laptop, one of my most prized possessions... ever, has lost the will to live. Or at least the will to boot. While it does offer some technical mumbo-jumbo as an excuse, the information has proven useless to us mere mortals who are staring at it.

While I do have other accesses to the www, I can't even begin to tell you the amount of distress it is causing me to not be able to access the rest of the world without leaving my spot on the couch.

Not only that, my photo software is on my laptop. Of course, I could install it my upstairs computer but first I would have to find it. Finding things is not one of my specialties... especially if I've put something in a place where I'm sure not to lose it.

When I find it, I can show you the things I've started in an attempt to fill the void in my life that is normally stimulated by blogging and wasting time on the Internet.

Oh!! I am aching for you...nothing worse than computer woes! Well, in the big picture there are worse things but I do feel for you. The minute my comp acts up I feel ill.

Around here, putting something in a "safe" place is the fastest way to ensure said item will never be seen again, or will only resurface when it is unnecessary and annoying. I'm sorry about your computer.

I know about that black hole...we seem to lose many "safely tucked away" items too.

I hate it when the comuter goes kaputt. Not nice. I hope that will leave you with more time to knit, so you have lots to show for when you get back into the net.

This is very sad indeed.

Perhaps it is with my tree skirt and nativity.

Is there such a thing as computer insurance???

Oh, the humanity! RIP, old friend.

Safe place? Muhahahaha! I agree...that's like the BLACK HOLE in my household!

I am sad to hear about your laptop. I would be lost without mine...

Blessings,
