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!!!

So like tasty
Maria, what sort of sauce will you serve with the keypad? I think a nice buttersauce would be lovely. I must confess though, I am stymied as to weather or not you should use fresh beef stock or chicken stock.

YOU BAKED YOUR KEYPAD, that is so filled with the awesome.

I once accidently washed my cell phone and tried to blow it dry, but your baked keypad so freaking wins.

And speaking of winning Donovan totally wins the utter cutness award in his Halloween costume!

*smooches madly*

Re: So like tasty
I was thinking of a nice turkey stock...in keeping with the season. :)

I KNOW!!! Can you believe it? I should go down in the BONEHEAD HALL OF SHAME on lj. Do they have that community somewhere? LOL!

My cell phone got wet about a month ago and hubby dried it out with one of his tools. IT WORKED! It didn't go so good for the keypad though...

Actually, that's Griffon's costume. Donovan is going as a Jedi knight. Griffon put all that stuff on him when he got the costume. Big brothers, you know. :)

*smooches and licks you*
