The Laptop Doctor

My laptop went to the Laptop Doctor on Saturday. Some nonsense about a power cord jack. I'm not taking it very well.

I bought four books, dusted everything in my apartment, took a four hour dance lesson, washed all my dishes, cleaned out three storage closets and my refrigerator. It's going to be a long week.

MY LAPTOP IS MY LINK TO THE WORLD!

I want to crawl under the covers and stay there until I get it back.

I seriously almost bought a mini when I dropped it off. How DARE they offer such things at the Laptop Doctor? It's like they're just preying on poor people like me. Jerks.

Oh! I'm so sorry you're laptopless. How about getting out a pen and paper and writing some old fashioned letters? That's a way of staying linked. :)

Oh no! I live in fear of something happening to my beloved laptop.

Hope yours is on the mend ASAP!

Netbooks are pretty cute...I've had my eye on one for a while now.

That sucks. Well at least you can talk to us via work computer.

Why don't they have a loaner program like the car dealers?

Sorry.

Yeah see I think my laptop is heading that way and I don't know if I can face it either. I mean there are other computers in my house but they're not the laptop now are they? I'm not taking dance lessons if it dies. No bloody way!

Thank God you still have a lap! God, I'm a bad man...

That really stinks.

I'm with you, I think I would have just bough the mini. Don't think I can live now without my laptop hooked up to the internet at home. Really, don't think it's possible.

It's like when the internet's out, and every five minutes you think "well I'll just kill time on the internet while I wait for i... rats!"

Yeah, those power cord jack problems are common. Unfortunately, they'll probably have to replace the entire motherboard. At least your data should all be fine.

I had a bit of a "fall off the wagon" day. Hmmm, maybe a bad phrase to use with you. No, I mean I ate a little more than I would have liked. But I strained my back, so I had an excuse.

In other words, you should be able to take me this week.

We lost our electricity last night while the babies were in the bath. Everything went totally black and I couldn't see them in the water at all, but my first thought was...HOLY CRAP IS THE BATTERY ON THE LAPTOP CHARGED???

So yeah. I feel ya.
