My computer died on me today. Yes, my new one.

Luckily, after letting it cool for a while (it got mega-hot, and it almost never gets hot), I was able to do a recovery. I'm making my long overdue back-up cds now. I was scared into action on that one.

I am eternally grateful to everyone who looked at my post and voted for me in therealljidol. I made it through! I'm happy to learn it, although very sad at how many of my favorites didn't make it.

Does this mean we'll lose 12 this week? I shudder to think.

My dad is living in Asheville now. He's staying with Tina and will be looking for work here. I wish him luck. Josh hasn't had any yet. I'm glad we'll get to see him more often though.

Eden lost both front teeth one night after the other. She's excited. She's also decided she's putting the profits of that towards a trip to Hawaii. She and Ivy have decided that's our next vacation. I wish them the best of luck at it.

I'm excited about the inauguration tomorrow. If we don't miss it due to Ivy's doctor appointment, I plan on using it for a good homeschooling lesson. Maybe it's a good time to do the kids' healing ceremony that I was thinking of starting.

I'm glad my computer turns back on. I hope it stays. That makes three of us whom I know are battling this very issue right now. Crazy.

Care to click?

Clicked! I found it pretty addicting after I finally adopted some.

My laptop tends to get pretty hot too. The little rubber circular things on the bottom that are supposed to keep it up a little have all fallen off. Unfortunately my vents/fan are on the bottom of my computer. I really should see about getting some more of those.

For Christmas this year I got a 500GB external hard drive so all my music and important files are on there. I'd be so devastated if I lost everything.

I'll definitely be watching the inauguration tomorrow. :)

I want to get an external hard drive quite badly, but they were a bit pricey when I went looking. This computer is still pretty new and the fanciest one I've ever had, so I freaked a bit when it tried to die on me.

Clicked away!

The cheapest place I've seen them is at Costco. That's where this one came from. I think it was something like $120-$140. It's a Western Digital portable one. I think the standard ones might be a little cheaper. Even if I hadn't gotten it for Christmas I probably would have bought one anyway, because I think the price is worth it. For me personally at least. I have about 80GB worth of music and I couldn't stand to lose it.

Out of computer nerd curiosity, what kind of computer is it?

We don't have Costcos around here, but that seems about the same range as the cheaper ones I looked at. I was shopping for a digital camera at the time though, so it was choosing one or the other.

This computer is an HP Pavilion dv7.

I'm glad that you survived, I did vote for ya.

Aw, did you really? You're totally awesome! I didn't even think you paid any attention to LJ Idol. Thank you so much!

Aside from reading your and puppetmaker40's entries, and voting for them, I do kinda ignore it. :)
Jan. 20th, 2009 11:03 pm (UTC)
Sweet. Well I'm so glad I stand out enough that you'd give me a vote every now and then. :D
Jan. 21st, 2009 05:17 am (UTC)
Indeed, you do stand out, and you earn my vote. Every time.

You rock extremely hardcore. I hope I can keep it up! Thank you!

This reminds me, I keep meaning to tell you...I have a good friend in Asheville who is a professional Asian Bodyworker and I think you two would get along smashingly. She's solestria on LJ.
Jan. 20th, 2009 04:54 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I sent her a message to introduce myself, and it looks like she's friended me. I've been hoping for new local friends, so I really appreciate it!
Jan. 20th, 2009 04:58 pm (UTC)
She moved there fairly recently and is also looking for new local friends, I'm sure. :)
