JessaLu Jessalu where have you been?

I have been to computer hell and am now back again…

I kind of stole that from Mother Goose…but I don’t think she’ll mind ;o)

So Monday my daughter wanted to go to the mall to hang out with her friends – and I decided that I would take the opportunity to do some quality high-speed internet surfing :o)  My sister came with me and after we dropped the kid off we went to B&N and got settled in.  At least…Amanda did.  I started a slow meltdown.  Why, you ask?  Because as my laptop booted up I noticed a nonstop parade of error messages dancing across my screen.  Lovely.  Amanda asked me what was wrong and I started to tell her and watched her eyes glaze over.  I then simplified it in a semi-scream “MY LAPTOP IS MELTING!!!” which she finally understood.  Somehow it made it more stressful that I didn’t have anyone to talk to about it while it was happening.  I ended up making a tearful call to my computer guru (even puter geeks have gurus – they usually like to be paid in baked goods ;o) ).  He wasn’t available so I left a message.  And then panic set in.  I started thinking of all the work I had on this thing and wondering how the hell I was going to get it off (at this point I started tearfully praying to the backup gods and making all kinds of false promises of regular offerings, etc, etc).  I managed to not mess with the thing until the next morning and I think I managed to get most of my stuff off.  Now I’m using the desktop (bleh) until I manage to pull a new laptop out of my butt.  Believe me, its not going to be easy.  My guru?  Finally called on Thursday.  grrrr – NO cookies for him!

Update:  Talk about timing – this article was in the Berkshire Eagle today:

  1. You poor thing! I’m still having technology nightmares. Just did some wrangling w/iTunes and Audible. Lots of yelling at Tom (poor guy).

    No! No cookies for the Guru! Moldy crusts of stale bread for him!

    Be sure to drink lots of water before attempting to pull that laptop out of your butt. It might make it easier!

    If you need a hand, speaking w/the back-up gods, just yell. I’ve been on a first name basis with them for a while.
