The computer sit-che-ashun

My laptop is in pieces. Literally.
Pieces and parts all over.
Powercord purchase wasn't the problem.
It's the doodad that the powercord goes into.
Howie leaves tomorrow to start his trips.
The NEW ordered part won't be here until Tuesday.

We have a desktop..........but it's a dinosaur.
It loads stuff like I have a dialup connection.
It won't let me comment on blogs.
It won't let me open gmail.
I have anger right now.

I have some $$$ saved.
I'm contemplating a purchase whilst Howie is gone.
I need someone to be my conscience.

................or not.

Oh, it can be an early Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas present!

LKP said...

lol. i'm sorry. i'd be mad too.
if my computer was in pieces, my hubby gone, the part not due for a while, and some cash on my hand? yeah i'd totally be buying a NEW ONE! i'd even be tempted to make the big switcheroo to a MAC! (but that's me & my moral dilemma.)

There is pretty much nothing that makes me angrier than a broken computer. Well, maybe Mario Lopez.

Kirsten said...

Ooooh, oooooh, ya! Switch to a MAC!! I'll never go back to a PC. PC's are SOOOOO old school! :) Get with the program Sista! And now's your chance!

Conscience, conscience where is my conscience? Over there . . .at the laptop store calling my name ever so softly TAUNA, TAUNA, COME PARTAKE! . . .

this is my failed attempt to be funny ;) Sorry about the laptop and oh yeah, tell how that the bad conscience beat up the good conscience on the over to the laptop store.

Hang in there.

I say a new laptop is in order.
I know, I am THAT kind of friend.
sorry Howie.

No one of our ages should have to deal with that kind of stress and inconvenience.
are you hearing me...............

did the lap dance not work out?? (tee,hee)

gigi said...

Wait on the part. Let them fix it at the comp store if they can't just buy a new one with my blessings.

That was very odd seeing another Gigi sign in and leave a comment. I thought I had lost my mine.

HOW IS A GIRL S'POSED TO FUNCTION W/O A COMPUTER? Sheeeeesh. Okay -- how 'bout this plan: just come down and see me and you can do the bloggy-thang all day long! And I will only interrupt you 500 times to chat. :)

Sherrie said...

Oh boy do I know how you feel. You know my story and how I just got a laptop because my desktop is a dinosaur. I hate not having a computer. Its become my lifesource pretty literally with school and all. Hopefully you will get a replacement soon. Take care.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Oh go get a new laptop already!! YOU NEED IT!! Look at it this's cheaper than therapy! And they aren't that expensive anymore.

One Cluttered Brain said...

I'll be your conscience! You can get a netbook computer like mine a Wal-mart for $300. And these computers are da bOMB! i wouldn't lie.
and they have a webcam too! (Then psst, IF you download Skype to your puter...It's free) we could yak at each other on the weekends...
If you want.
And I could teach U how to work that video camera and upload videos to Youtube...:)
Love ya Tauna.

do whatever U must do to survive!

Saimi said...

I say out with the old, in with the new! You deserve a new computer and seriously I bet you could find a good deal out there!

Start shopping!!

Barbaloot said...

Part of me wants to start chanting, "buy it buy it buy it." But then, the darn rational part of me remembers you said the new part is on it's way, and really, it's better to wait and save money. Right? Maybe?

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That really sucks, I am so sorry. I know how angry I would be!!!

Valerie said...

That stinks! Hope you get a new computer...I mean get the situation resolved...real soon!

Cherie said...

I wish I could say I was a conscience with a good influence but I say GO FOR THE NEW COMPUTER!!!

Kazzy said...

Do it.

No one will know.

Everyone is doing it.

Why not?

Did those convince you??? :)

T said...

pfff... I'm no good as a conscience... you NEED a computer that works with the speed of real life right???

(ugh, I'm trying not to hear that simplify conference talk right now...)

Lisa @ Pulsipher Page said...

I'm in a similar situation but with a broken camera. Do I buy a new one or continue to wait for it to be fixed. Ahhhh!

I went camera window shopping last week. They sure were very pretty.

Laura said...

Just go buy a new one. ;)

Connie said...

If you're like my kids, you'll buy a new one then take it back in a week!

Hope you get up and running soon!

M-Cat said...

I have nothing to offer, except do whatever it takes to stay ON LINE AND CONNECTED! AT ALL COSTS!

Buy new or wait for part - either way....just for the love of all that's holy don't just drop off of cyber world. Some of us have 'needs' you know

Kim said...

Mikki said...
