HELLO 2010!

i don't think i could even do "fish lips" until i was eight years old...

Thanks to Lindsay at Linkie Lueville, good old (like, really really old) Dell Inspiron 6000 is working once again. She suggested that I pop the hard drive out and reconnect it and holy crap, it actually worked.

Garrison walked into the living room last night and I had screwdrivers and computer parts all around me, I probably looked so smart/sexy/cool. In all honesty though, I made the whole process like 50 times more stupid than it had to be. After I had taken out 14 screws (the stupid cat ate one) and disconnected the back from the keyboard, I realized that I only needed to remove 2 screws because a hard drive isn't actually in the computer. It's on the side. Like, it has its own compartment for easy removal and everything. No duh, right? Anyway, I popped it out and blew on the end because, hey. That always fixed NES games so what the heck? And now I'm blogging from my own computer again.

Speaking of "No duh" and NES, here are some awesome 1990-like things I did while my computer was down:

Used a phone book!!
Watched Igby Goes Down on VHS!!
Listened to CDs!! (Compact Discs. so cool)
Used a cook book!!
Payed our AT&T bill over the phone!!
Started jogging daily!! (people were doing that in the 90s)

There are still a few glitches left to fix, but for now I have a computer. If anyone cool wants to come over for a LAN party or meet up in World of Warcraft world , email me asap (joking. or am i?) I can totally do these things now.

will you please take a few seconds and vote for us? thanks!

Thank you so much! Your comment made my day :)
I hope you get a chance to watch Two for the Road--I promise you won't regret it. Your blog is so lovely and sweet. I just found out that I'm expecting, and whenever I get nervous or overwhelmed I just look at your blog and your beautiful boy and I'm okay again.

Your list of stuff you did in the mean time literally made me laugh out loud. And then I had to read it to the hubby. Tooooo funny! Glad you're back online!!

GREAT post. It made me think of this 90s movie called "The Net." It was a pseudo-thriller-horror that might have starred Sandra Bullock.

What I mean is, you are basically Sandra Bullock.

Good work.
