Sick Laptop

I haven't been blogging much lately. It's not because I don't have a lot to blog about, I do, it's just that my laptop has been sick since January 29. I really don't like blogging from my desktop. I don't know if it reminds me of working a real job or what.

I guess "injured" is a better word to describe my little, tiny Fujitsu Lifebook that has been my best friends since I purchased it years ago from Vicki Peters. The little plug that you plugged in the AC Adaptor into that provides power or recharges the batter has been acting up. Some days, it would be plugged in and it wasn't registering, but if you would wiggle it, it would be okay. At first, I thought the cord was bad.

I then realized that most of the plastic from the plug inside the computer was missing. Then one day a metal prong came out. Mr. Bruises took it to his friend who is a computer doctor and he took it apart and said that the little board that works that plug looked fried. Hm, now that he mentioned it, I did smell something burning about a month ago, I just assumed it was dog hair!

So, it doesn't look good for the laptop. I've been assured that I can get all my photos, files and information off of the hard drive. I then purchased a new laptop that will arrive on Tuesday.

This new laptop is a lot larger than my little Fujitsu, so I hope I come to like it's size. There is a hell of a story to tell about this new laptop and the ordering, but I am going to wait and see how things turn out before I blog about it.

So, sorry for my absence. I am sorry that some of you are in purple withdrawal. I promise once me and my new pink laptop become acquainted, I will be blogging nearly daily again. I have a back log of stuff for you.

What was that? Why didn't I get a purple laptop? Well if I got a pink one this month, a donation was made to the Susan G Koman Breast Cancer Foundation. I'm all about saving the ta-tas.
