all kinds of stuff has happened.
I learned what a "service board" is, thanks to Mr. D's tech connections.
I got a new laptop.
I learned how desperately awful a tablet is for those of us interested in doing more than looking at a screen. That iPad is just an expensive viewing screen, total shit for actually typing or editing or writing. Even leaving comments on a blog was unbearably torturous.
Why did it take so long to get a replacement laptop if Mr. D's so well connected, Green Girl?
Good question. Part of it had to do with Mr. D using a low end tech to set it up. One of the more experienced techs would have had me up and running in 2 hours as opposed to 3 days. The goal was a seamless transition, all of my screen and programs were to run identical to the old one so I didn't have to set anything up. But then the "service updates" took an entire day once this guy got the laptop set up. The darn thing sat plugged in on my kitchen counter showing the same stupid, useless, no-good blue screen for hours. That was almost worse than when it sat miles away at Mr. D's office space.
What else is new, you ask?
By not writing much on this blog I added followers. How's that for weird? The key to increasing my audience might be to write less and less often. Who knew?
The weather got warm and melty.
Mr. G became enamored with The Daily Monster and begged me to buy him ink. Do you know The Daily Monster? It's pretty charming as monsters go. So then this happened:
Then the weather got cold, icy, snowy, sleety and pretty gol-darn miserable once again.
Which brings me to today--2 inches of snow on the ground, all practices/games/meets cancelled until further notice, a stack of work to catch up on (editing and writing), and looking forward to my trip to Jen on the Edge's next weekend.
Spill it, reader. What's new with you?
