OMG first of all, let me say how much I have missed all of you! Holy crap…I’m telling you…It’s been a bit of a ride these last couple of weeks.
First, my son…darling boy that he is…broke my laptop screen. Yes. He did go there. Does this look like a kid that would do something like that?
After I finished hyperventilating (which had followed the yelling), I figured, well…it’s insured, we can get it fixed, and in the meantime, I’ll use the pc. HA. “Sure,” the fates said. “Sure you will.” It turns out that our internet connection for the pc is a piece of total garbage…it’s also a wireless connection, but the thing is, is that our router and whatever that other machine is called are in the living room. Having concrete walls apparently is not conducive to internet reception, so it’d just crap out constantly. I couldn’t even read anything, because pages took like 6 years to upload. Ya, ok, you betcha. Like I have time to wait for that. I’m sure my darling boy would love it…I mean, THINK of all the things he could break while I sit on my bum in the bedroom waiting for internet pages to load. lmao
So. I ever so sweetly asked my dear hubs if he would consider moving the pc to the living room so I could at least get some work (and READING–Addicts *need* their food blog fix in the morning, dammit! ehem) done. Guess what? The damned thing broke. I’m not even kidding. The on/off switch thingamajig disconnected itself or some weird thing like that, so we can’t turn on the pc either. I give up.
Anyway, it was time to go on vacation! Which I would have told you about had I any internet, either with the laptop or the pc. We spent a glorious week overlooking the sand dunes of Maspalomas, in the southern part of our island. Frolicking in the pool, shmearing on sunblock like there was no tomorrow…well, that’s not exactly right….more like there *is* a tomorrow and we don’t want skin cancer on that morrow.
Now we’re back home, and dear hubs….miracle worker that he is…tech God…has made me a special ghetto computer to get by on until we get the two fixed. I have thee most pimped out set up here….you’d all be jealous, and probably are thinking of stealing this idea for your own selves, but I will share anyway. lmfao I have the pc monitor hooked up to the laptop. Supa-fly, I’m tellin ya. Ok, ok, QUITIT! It isn’t *that* funny. Or maybe it is. I have to admit, I am sort of giggling myself at the fact that truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction. I’m SO happy to be back, and can’t wait to find out what you’ve all been cooking!!! Signing off for now from the world’s most Ghetto computer evAH….canarygirl MUAC!
