Laptop Travesty

It's official - my laptop has shit the bed. Stupid effing piece of technology. How is it acceptable that a mere 4 years is considered a long and happy life?!

Now, not only do I need to start pricing and shopping (I don't think we'll be able to splurg on the mac that I want... :(), but it had been a couple weeks since we backed anything up to our external harddrive and now I've lost a bunch of recent pictures. BOOOO.

This was the final straw in the suckage that was my 'Monday' (which fell on Tuesday this week since I took Monday off). I slept through my alarm, woke up with 12 minutes to spare before I needed to be out the door. I forgot to temp in my whirlwind panic. Didn't get breakfast, obviously. Forgot my cell until I was about a mile form home. Ran back inside to get it, scraped my leg on my car door (which resulted in a large red welt and a sexay bruise - the blue of the bruise complimented my brown dress nicely...), and that was all before I got to work. Since I'd selfishly taken two days off I suppose I deserved the ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY-EIGHT emails that filled my inbox, the to-do list that was never ending, and the 4 meetings on my calendar. UGH.

Needless to say the last thing I needed yesterday was the death of my beloved laptop. I think poor J thought I was going to jump off the roof by the end of it.


  1. Do not throw away your laptop. Your pictures are still recoverable off your harddrive. Stephen has taken completely FRIED hard drives out of computers, put them in another unit and recovered files from them. You just need someone who knows what they are doing. So hang on to it, and you may get them back. GL!

  2. I'm hoping that is the case! My friends dad is hopefully going to look at it for us. Otherwise I may be coming down to see you!! :)
