Unplanned break..

Well I felt as if I was losing a bit of my momentum with my blog. For some reason I feel obligated to do a new post fairly often. I've noticed that some of my fave blogs have been lacking lately (only in the frequency of posts!!). Perhaps it's just a season??

Anyways, I did something REALLY STUPID a few days ago. I spilled water on my sweet, shiny, aluminum MacBook. The computer guy told me to turn it off, take out the battery and leave it off for 10 days - 2 weeks to give time for the water to dry out. Say WHAT?!?!? So I'm going through withdrawals. Luckily my techy cousin came by to dust off and clean up my old laptop so that at the very least I can check emails and get my daily facebook fix. However, my stone aged laptop leaves much to be desired and I'm afraid my posts will be scant over the next fortnight. I'm forced to use it in a tiny corner of the tv room as the wireless card is fried and therefore it must be directly connected to the blue cord coming from the modem. It also has a battery with a maximum life of about 60 seconds, no lie. If I've gotta move it, I'm running!

Hopefully when I next turn my shiny baby on, she'll be as good as new. In the meantime I shall take an unplanned break from this blogland. I will be reading, though not as often so please forgive me if I'm not commenting as often as I usually do.

Hope life is grand where ever you may be!!

ttfn,
Elle :)

for a little encouragement... the SAME thing happened to me. I spilled water all over the keyboard and the entire computer screen went black! I did the same... turned it off and left it like a tent for at least a week, and when I turned it on it was as good as new! I am sure hoping its the same thing for you! :)

I was wondering what happened to you! I miss reading! Sorry about your computer! I hope things get back on track for you soon. :)

I am so very sorry to hear this! I hope you are up and running on it soon. (And my laptop battery is about 45 seconds!).

So sorry about the computer. That is miserable. We'll look for you when you get back.

Oh no! Come back soon with a fixed Mac! I was scarce for a while too as I had incredible blogger's block!! I'm getting over it now, I hope.
