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.

Yeah...right.

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!!!

Beautiful picture of the popcorn purgatory and Griffon's Halloween costume and TV, but where is Donovan? I see a cheek and maybe a nose, maybe not. No matter, he will be adorable in his Jedi outfit, and score lots and lots of candy.
Looking forward to some of that promised free time you are to be gifted with, and the fruit of the creative muse.

The holiday they created in your honor will soon be here with monsters, aliens, vampires, the deranged and absurd, to stimulate the imagination and cause a wellspring of words to flow forth from your mighty laptop.

Donovan's there...somewhere. LOL! Yes, I did do a Jiffy Pop with my keypad.

Only me. *shakes head*

Well, I actually have SO many ideas but I must choose carefully what I want to write or I won't get anything written. Besides updating Justins Baby and *crosses fingers* the cannibal fic, I have a strange crossover planned.

ALSO, I just started a new comm in keeping with the halloween spirit. You must check it out!

Also, I need to find creepy eyes and angry teeth for my trees in my forest. I want to make it look like my trees are going to eat people. :)
