Blogger's Lament

My computer died on Thursday. I was happily working when the machine started buzzing and I got a scary, never-before-seen error message. I turned the thing off, then unsuccessfully tried to turn it on. Then I noticed that the little white light that flashes on a mac when the computer is on but closed - not flashing. Bad, bad sign. I finally got it to turn on, but it froze halfway through the start up. Twice.

There goes our stimulus check. Plus a little more, since Chris convinced me that a 13 inch screen would drive me crazy. That I NEEDED a 15 inch screen for work.

I am hoping Chris can help get stuff off the hard drive, or someone else can. Because oy, even though I have gotten better about backing up photos, a couple of months worth are on there, along with the new Bon Iver album I bought on itunes last night. Poof.

Plus, as long as I am complaining: I have not heard word one from the sponsors of that Kirtsy contest. No computer, no bike, no tea. (Dramatic sigh.)


  1. So glad you came out yesterday to shop. It was good to see you!

  2. We are so glad you are happy with your purchase at our opening event! A friend from Medford asked me about a clock in one of the pix on our slideshow...and when I went to the barn today, there was not a clock in sight! I guess we need to buy more vintage clocks for the next event! :o)

  3. Wow, that sucks. Have you tried going to an Apple store? They helped me with my old G5 mac.
