La, La, La, La, La, Live For Today

Computer Update: So, I'm going to bring my computer over to my friend BK's house to see if he can work on it. I've been told that BK is the lord, king, god computer guy and if he can't fix it, it can't be fixed. Without even looking, he told me he thought my inner-tubes might be clogged. (shut-up)

Since my landlord is stopping by to change the filters in my furnace and drop off the new lease to be signed today, I had to (ahem) tidy up my place a little and didn't have time to prepare a blog post last night. It's pretty tough to write anything at work with everyone reading the paper aloud to me and talking about which of their trees they lost in the storm this weekend, so I'm giving up. Hopefully, I'll have a working computer in the next week and I can stop with all the computer updates and lame-ass posts. I also took some cool, ice-covered-world photos that I can't wait to post.

oo. Icey winter pictures!!

First I thought of writing 'I'm very excited' but that seemed stupidly impatient, and then I thought of writing, 'I can't wait' but that also seemed etc etc. I can wait, I will wait and I'll hope your computer repair man is magnificent!

I will say that I can't wait to see your pictures. K sent me some of the tree that is now lyin on the garden.

Booda Baby,

I am excited to get a working computer and to see if any of the photos I took, turned out okay. I'm also stupidly impatient, so I appreciate that in others. I'm hoping my computer man is excellent, too.

Ondine,

It was tricky trying to take them, since I didn't want to ruin my camera in the weird rain/ice that was coming down and all the trees around me were making such scary noises, but we'll see how they turned out. I saw K's tree in the garden pic on Myspace. I'm hoping it will add some more light in the garden.

I am praying to the fickle gods of computer workiness on your behalf. Have you sacrificed a Speak-n-spell on the altar yet? It's the only way to be sure...

Churlita said...

Mr Atrocity,

If only I had a speak-and-spell. I might not need a computer then. Just kidding.

Bice said...

I miss your pictures. Do you have power at home yet? If you said I missed it.

Don't worry about the quality of your posts. Hats off to you that you are still posting sans home computer. I resolve to continue to leave lame-ass comments as a show of solidarity until you're computer-enabled again and we are both forced to elevate our writing.

Countdown to photo posts!

Churlita said...

Bice,

Oh yeah. We got our power back on Saturday night. Thank you for your commitment.

Fringes,

I hope the countdown is very short.

I'm glad you have your priorities straight. Blog, house, kids, food, and rent. (I kid)

Churlita said...

Egan,

Who cares about, rent, food or the kids?

Remiman said...

Churlita,
I've got my fingers crossed for you. Looking forward to seeing your photos.
Inner tubes? Are you riding your bike to work?

Now that's some service!

C, hope you get some Prozac in your HAL 9000. I would really like to see your ice storm photos.

Churlita said...

John,

Thank you so much. If I had spoken to someone like you when I called tech support, I would have been singing your praises all over the internets.

Brando,

I do too. I'm curious to see if any of them turned out.

ooo, not missing the cube life at all, no one's attempted to read the news paper to me in almost 2 months

Margaret,

I wouldn't miss cubicle life either. They're designed to suck souls.
