A drive-by about Donovan, my keypad and whatnot...  
Hi all!

Yes, I am still here! My laptop has been fixed...sort of and I still have to use a mouse because the touch pad is toast. Still, I'm mobile again. For the time being. I need to take it to the Apple store to get it fixed completely.

BTW, when I say the laptop is 'fixed,' I mean we had to get a new keypad installed. When hubby called around, he was told to put the keypad into the oven at really really low temps and keep it in there to dry out.

So he did and then he put it back in and it was still toast. So he put it back in the oven and I said 'This is stupid. Get a new keypad or get me a new laptop.' So he ordered a new keypad and forgot that the old one was in the oven until...

Alex decided to make brownies and didn't check the oven. This is what a keypad looks like when it's been cooked:

Yep...it's toast.

Even though we're getting it fixed this week, I think I know what my Christmas prezzie is gonna be...:)

So I now have semi-laptop capacity today and tomorrow again which means I can write and such until I take it in. Using the iMac in the office is such a pain but I'm gonna give it a shot.

There are other things going on (mainly the kids and the shop) that I don't want to get into right now but it'll all be okay.

I've also requested to have some time just for me so I can write and communicate with everyone on lj (or ij or gj). I think I made my point clear.


I'll be spending time tonight responding back to my fb (I'm so behind...:P)

One quick thing before I go...

Under the cut is a piccie of Donovan in Griffon's Halloween costume.

I wish I could do the whole sepia tone thing and put a faux WANTED border around it. LOL!

I'll talk to you all soon.

Love and smooches!!!

Well, this is one way of getting a new computer.The keyboard looks very interesting. I've borrowed one of my school's brand new macbooks to try out at home. I use a mac mini normally. Because I am a high school librarian the government let's me salary sacrifice for a new computer if I want and I am planning on doing this next year. I think that I will get a new macbook with the leopard operating system. Should be good. I'm not giving up my mac mini though - it's too good. I think that I deserve to have 2 computers if I want.

See? That's what I thought. I need to have this fixed though. Even if I get a new one soon (like Christmas maybe? Yes? Maybe? *crosses fingers*)

We have so many friggin macs in this house. I have my laptop. Mallory has Alex's old ibook which is smaller. Megan has an imac. Griffon has an imac (the one I'm using also now). Joe (hubby) has a super G5. Alex has the latest imac which is totally awesome and hubby also has a laptop (older model though).

Yet, I can't seem to find private time to write. *huffs*

I know the mac mini. I've heard those are great.
