Technical difficulties

Please stay tuned... We are experiencing technical difficulties... hmmm.... Please stay tuned... We are experiencing technical difficulties... hmmm....

This is where I am working, at least for the next few days. The wireless on my laptop decided to vanish this morning and after trying everything my ungeeky brain could think of I have given up. Tomorrow I will gird up my loins and call HP tech support where I will listen to "Andrew" speak in his foreign accent. Hopefully he will perform a miracle and remove the stick that has crawled up my laptop's USB port. There will be a 2 liter bottle of Diet Coke and hopefully some chocolate jelly rings at my side to help get me through what could be a long ordeal.

Fortunately, just last week Zeus finally got a new computer. The old one, which happens to be my favorite one at the moment, was refurbished and upgraded to wireless. Please listen now as I publicly apologize to my wonderful husband for questioning his wisdom in doing this. I am truly sorry I gave you a hard time and am VERY grateful to have this computer. The kids can use it later after mine is cooperating again.

Medical report: Cracked rib? Probably, it hurts when I move wrong. Also, I have a nice bruise above my mouth that looks like Hitler's moustache, except that it is on the side and is dark purple. I ran yesterday morning and was much more cautious when I reached the dreaded sidewalk. Would somebody out there fix that? Please?

Update: The laptop has to return to the HP Hospital for a new mother board. This is the
second time! Thank heavens for the extra one that seems to be running very well.

It's probably a software issue - what a pain. I went through a lot of stuff with my mom's computer a few weeks ago. I hope the HP tech support can help and quickly. Let me know if you need any help too.

Your poor lip! I had to laugh at your description of half of Hitler's mustache. You are so funny! You better go have your ribs checked, especially if they're still hurting.

Have a great day!

What do you do for cracked ribs? Eat a lot of chocolate?
