So, the end of semester grades were turned in last night. Next comes the flurry of complaints and questions. Then...clean up the house, use up the stuff in the freezer, and reread War and Peace!
But then as I sat at the computer, a crown fell off my tooth!
Next morning, Mr. FS turned on his Dell computer. We hate Dell for its bad customer service anyway. Now we will put our vow to never buy anything from Dell again: Mr. FS was greeted by the dreaded blue screen. We took the computer to the Geeks at Best Buy and discovered that a diagnosis would cost $200.00. JUST SAY NO.
Back home, Mr. FS managed to turn the thing on again and backed up all the files just in case.
It turns out that putting the crown back on is no big deal. But we have to buy a new computer.
Tell me, is it good karma that the computer died after the semester was over? Or bad karma that it died at all? We had one computer that lasted for over 20 years. Now it seems that computers have become throwaway items with short life spans.
OMMMMMMMMMMM. We have an emergency fund for our new computer. OMMMMMMMMMM.
