Mac, Steve, and the Itsy Bitsy Spider

Oh, you guys. It got worse. Remember about my special laptop and how I love it so and need to sit at MY desk with MY laptop to be able to write or answer emails? Well, my desk is back, but, you guys? My laptop…it didn’t make it.

Two nights ago it suddenly stopped working, so I took it to the Apple store, where I was greeted by a delightful surprise.

It took more mental restraint than it should have for me to not send that tweet while I was still standing in front of him.

Mac was very nice, but he couldn’t save my hard drive. So my computer is taking a little vacation at the Apple store getting new insides. Seeing as how it is almost four years old, I can’t be too put out. I can, however, want to kick myself for not backing the thing up more frequently.

I lost some stuff. I lost a couple of important documents and all of my photos from September (biiiiiiig sad face), but it could have been worse. Honestly, I don’t know exactly what I lost. I mean, I guess if I can’t remember it, it’s probably not that important, right?

I’m going to keep telling myself that.

In more Apple news, I wrote about what Steve Jobs meant to me over at Autism Unexpected. I’m not even a week late on this breaking news, so just shut up already, okay?

I think from now on I’ll pretend that my hard drive died of a broken heart.

If you’re a little sobby right now, I’ll fix that with this tweet about an experience I had this morning.

Yeah. THAT happened.

I was walking in a parking lot at the time. I sort of want to tell you more about it and how I started jumping around and swiping at my face for no discernible reason in front of a lot of onlookers and to insist to you that I am a clean person and showered, like, two hours before The Great Spider Fiasco of 2011, but all I can think about is how long it had been hanging out in my clothes and laying eggs in my ears and OH MY GOD I AM SO ITCHY ALL OF A SUDDEN.

It was really terrible.
