I woke up this morning bright and early, happy that my boys (son & husband) we're going to be arriving for a visit, but alas as soon as I reached the studio and started up my computer I realized that the day was threatening to turn sour. A few cracks in 2 pieces I have to deal with slowly but consistently over the next few days, but it shouldn't be too bad.
But worse than that my computer died. Won't even start up. Can't seem to find the start up disk. Sigh. It's a 8 year old Mac which has survived a previous hard drive fail (2 weeks before my thesis was due) and recently (a few months back) was drown in a coke. It's led a good life, so maybe it was just it's time. Cruddy thing is I only have an equally temperamental and threatening to die hand me down laptop from my mom to replace this one and the monitor on that one only works a fraction of the time. But I'm not winging. I'm just letting you know in case my blogging becomes a bit more sporadic until I can get an adequate replacement. I guess this is a good excuse to have to go back to the wonders of Hycroft China again to retake all the photos I've lost
