This isn't really a post

It's a confession.

Yesterday, thinking that a little music would do me good, and having taken the advice of a friend to buy some Justin Rutledge music, I hauled myself to a reasonably vertical position, tore the plastic off the CD with my teeth, checked to make sure my earbuds were in the right ears, and slipped the new CD into my laptop.

I know, that hardly warrants a confession.

Here's the thing:  I slipped the CD into the same place I already had a DVD (Land Before Time VI, I think) and now I have to replace my drive.  And since I never heard Justin, and Emma watches Land Before Time whenever she's here, and since Dell thinks I might have fritzed the two of them, I have to be prepared to replace the two maladjusted disks.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!


  1. Better than having a fence come tumbling down though.

  2. OH NO! I must remember that, because I will surely do that sooner than later.

  3. I think you need to run away from me, cause I'm just really bad luck to you :(

  4. ha, ha, ha... I mean: that's too bad mom!

  5. I bet it was as big a mistake as the costly repair of my laptop when someone, probably ME, spilled heaven only knows what in the keyboard which, of course, drips right down on all the guts of the computer.

    Since this is a desktop replacement type laptop with 18" screen custom designed I PAID, PAID, PAID.

    Now since I use it in a lift chair on my lap, I've decided to buy an add-on keyboard which will probably improve, (if that is possible) my typing. This laptop has a full standard keyboard.

    I have several add on mice, but it is hard to find a keyboard w/o a mouse.

  6. Dang, girl!! Not fair!!
    Better days ahead, my friend! Better days ahead!
