My Computer is Holding My Blog Hostage

Still kind of a bummer of a day what with all the low-level sickness that Quinn and I are sharing. However I did take my computer into the Apple store and it looks like it will probably be fixable. (Fingers crossed, knock on wood, don't say the word "Macbeth," or whatever other superstition you're into.) I also found out that the computer is still under warranty, so yay.

(Extended warranty? How could I go wrong?)

Sadly, however, it's on a long vacation to the Apple Depot, wherever that is, getting fixed. So you'll have to wait more than a week for some of the incredibly topical, timely, delightful posts I had planned with the photos that are trapped on that computer.

And, yes, those photos are crucial to the story of The Ostrich Who Tried to Kill Quinn and The Day We Hugged a Camel.

Put that on your calendar for next Wednesday or so. Or count on the fact that I will lose interest in these oh-so-compelling stories and write about linoleum or something. You just never know what you're going to get here, do you?


  1. I hope your computer is better soon! I can't wait to hear about the ostrich and camel upon its return!

  2. Yay for the mac warranty! Zero dollars is good!

  3. I can't wait to hear about the man-eating Ostrich. Those suckers are MEAN!

  4. Technology can be so frustrating!!!! Keep up your deep breathing. I am sure you will find something to entertain us with in the meantime. I have confidence in you.

  5. I thought only PCs were supposed to go bad. I have to say, you are not the best advertisement for Mac.

  6. Cannot wait to hear the ostrich and camel stories - hopefully there was no spitting involved in the camel hugging!
    I hope the computer gets well soon!

  7. I forgot to tell you I had to look up ague. Now I am trying to find a way to work it into conversation like, "I hear your Mac has a touch of ague. Get well soon, Ague Mac."

    How was that?

  8. We had bad experience with an ostrich before. Mean, nasty birds.
