Happy Happy, Joy Joy, Happy Happy, Joy Joy

Does anyone remember that, or am I showing my real age?

MY COMPUTER IS FIXED, MY COMPUTER IS FIXED, MY COMPUTER IS FIXED!!!!!!

It only took nine hours of cell phone minutes, seven different Dell "technicians", and three visits from a local computer repair company. Through out this ordeal the local company was magnificent. They could only do the work that Dell authorized them to do, and they felt very bad each time they left without fixing the problem. They even donated a part to us to try to repair our old Compaq computer so we would have something to use. I firmly believe the only reason my computer is working is because they got on the phone and argued with Dell to get the parts we really needed (only a new motherboard and processor, nothing major). They were wonderful and I might name our next child after their company. I would give a shout out to them and their names, but you know, I have kids, and I like to keep a minimum level of anonymity here.

I have so many things to blog about. I've got a whole boring rant about Dell. A package from my SP to brag about (with the best biscotti in the entire world). Not to mention a very special package from Katrina (I love you too). And Five, count 'em, FIVE finished objects to show. Sure they're small things, but hey, still, I've got five of them. With my computer down I had tons of time to knit. It was heaven.

One of the things we did in the course of trying to get the computer fixed was re-image our hard drive. That means all of our files and software are completely gone. As soon as I find the disk for our camera so I can upload pictures I'll be showing off all my fun stuff.

In the meantime I just wanted to say "HI". I'm so happy to be back.

I remember that; it was one of my favourite shows. Mr. Horse ("No sir. I don't like it."), The Shaven Yack..."It's Log, Log, it's better than bad...it's good!"

Ren and Stimpy! My parents always got mad that I watched it :)
