My Computer.....March,2008...*R*I*P*

Monday morning started out not so good for me. I woke up and stumbled to the kitchen to start a pot of coffee to help jump start my day...while that magic potion was brewing, I stumbled back to the computer to check about some stuff for my class.
I hit the switch to turn it on....the motor came on...even gave me a bit of a *beep* to let me know that it was on....and then....nothing....nada...zip...ppffflllltttttttt.

Shock!!! Dismay!!! "But....what about my e-mail?? MY BLOG???"
Quick....to the kitchen...must have caffeine to help make it through this dire situation!!

The K-man has a good friend....who I will lovingly call the "computer guru"...so I waited patiently (tap tap tap) for a good time and called to see if he could come and save....resurrect, if you wish....my lifeline to the "the real world".
"I can come tomorrow night."........."But....that's tomorrow!!! That's at least 36 hours away!!! What will I do?!?!?!"

I survived Monday night...actually went to bed before midnight...which is not a bad thing!!!
Tonight...after bribing serving my guru spaghetti....he was back in my office/room, doing what he does best. I checked back there earlier and, swear to God, it looked like someone doing "computer surgery" in the middle of my room (the K-Man was his assistant). Parts and pieces and whatnot was all around.
The verdict: The new hardware is too fast and too new for the components of my computer. He'll be back tomorrow!! *sigh*

So...dear friends....I am typing this on my husband's computer and it is making me crazy (he has a Japanese keyboard and I keep hitting the key that switches the English to Japanese!!aaarrrggghhhhhhh!!)......I will respond to comments and check e-mail messages hopefully tomorrow night!!

I'm wondering if I can go to a temple or shrine and pray to a "computer God"?!?! Will check that out.....

Have a good day....and I will be back in a bit!!

Hope your guru can wave a magic wand and make it all better!

OMG! I would have to be sedated until my computer was fixed. Deep breaths!

See you when you get back.

omg(oodness) I can barely go 12 hours without seeing my computer screen. (Although lately I have been going longer without looking at my computer) I'll be praying to this "Computer God" for you!

I would seriously be crushed, my computer isn't paid for yet! Ouch, I don't even want to think about it.

That is a universal pain. My laptop died last summer and I was beside myself.
