It was swift yet quiet. One death rattle then it expired, taking my link to the outside world with it.

I'm talking about my laptop, AKA "Useless Good For Nothing Piece of Crap".

I am in the library utilizing a free yet uncomfortably public desktop, lamenting the loss of all of my vacation photos, my genealogy info (ten thousand relatives down the toilet) and my schedule for the next six months. Couples are marrying, babies are being showered, and Pack Meetings are being packed without my presence.

This is the equation for my existence right now...


I need a miracle. And five quarts of cookie dough ice cream. Heck, gimme ten quarts.

11 brilliant observations:

OH, I'm so sorry!!!! Where do I send flowers? Has the Relief Society come to give you relief?????
I'm not sure what I would do without connectivity.
We went camping for 5 days and I kinda had a hard time.
Hope you get a rebirth soon.

That is really sad :( I'm sorry, the ice cream should help though :)

Cheryl said...

You're back!!! And I am glad "dead" is not referring to Michael Jackson! (: Although, I'm sorry for your loss!!

Karen said...

That is horrible! My desk top died awhile back and I lost irreplaceable photos and the first draft of my first complete novel. It's devastating, I know!

I hope you'll be able to recover the data from your laptop and that you'll be able to get connected back to the world soon!

I've had that happen too. It sucks. But not as much as thinking that you'd gone down on that AirFrance crash. Because I thought you might've, there for a while.
Best wishes on recovering as much memory as possible, and getting a new laptop! In the meantime, eat a lot of ice cream for me!

Cryin' out loud I thought some horrid relative was taking care of your mortal affairs and decided to announce your demise with a one-word stick-it-in-your-ear, bloggers kind of announcement.


Same thing happened to me. Our pictures from our once-in-a-lifetime trip to Peru are being held hostage in a defunct hard-drive right now. It's unlikely we'll ever see them again.

I'm totally feeling your pain, RMax, but I'm so dang happy to see you back I'm having a hard time not smiling while I grieve with you.

WV: welya

Are we happy to hear from RMax again? WEL, YA!

R! I was so worried. YOu kept updating goodreads but not blogging and I didn't want to be all nosy but I worried. Glad you're back and sorry to hear about your laptop. Trade in that SUV and get a new one!

Cheryl said...

I'll send it all with Tayli!

Lucy said...

Worst news ever! There should be funerals for dead laptops. Or ways to sue somebody. I think about this one every day. Can I bring in a meal?

I hope you can recover the stuff on your laptop.
My computer crashed and I lost all my stuff about a year ago - No fun! I am feeling for you.

My hubby and I also just got back from a European Anniversary trip. After 3 days in France I accidentally deleted the pic's off my camera. I have the whole rest of the trip but you know you can never replace the ones you lose. So I am seriously hoping someone can recover those for you off your computer. I feel your pain!!

Good luck!
