Last Friday afternoon I was sitting here and minding my own business when Chris-the-Destroyer peered around the screen of the laptop and smiled. Then he proceeded to spit a full mouthful of juice straight into the keyboard.
Honestly I was at a loss. So he spent the next 15 minutes in time out. He didn't like it, but I don't really think he understands that it was a big deal.
I turned the computer off and left it keyboard down on a towel to dry out. Jason popped off a bunch of keys to clean it and was able to hook up an external drive to back up all the photos & important stuff.
Every time the computer was turned on it did all kinds of weird beeping or scrolling but that seems to have stopped. And for a while half the keys didn't work but things seem to be improving and I have high hopes of this thing being fully functional sooner or later. We did spend a few days talking over a plan to look for something new! I'm not sure what the precise timeline will be, but I think soon I'll be blogging from a shiny new laptop.
So that's all, really. Just wanted to pop on and say hi and explain where I've been. I hope to have some "real" stuff for you all this week.
