grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

So how well do you think you know me?
there's more to life than this
wonderful time of the semester
a cold bath
i shouldn't have gone back to sleep...
back to the mundane joys of life
the stolen election and the media
another stage of grief

the apple gods are with me

One of the reasons why last week was so crappy was because my laptop died. Yes, my beloved ibook's video card crashed. So, I sent it in to apple for repair. It was mailed out on Friday and I got an email this morning letting me know that they had received my ibook at the repair center. After spending a lazy weekend watching movies on TV and the Food Network, I have spent all day today stressing out about a some things: (1) the tons of comments I received on my latest masters thesis draft, (2) how to get the thesis defended by the end of the semester, (3) how to work on the *final* masters thesis at home this week without my lovely ibook, (4) how to make a presentation in Keynote and run it on my ibook a week from today, and (5) how to start working on my seminar paper that needs to be done soon enough. The prospect of working extra at school on my work PC and then working at school over the holiday weekend doesn't work for this home-body. BUT just as I was complaining about how much I miss my laptop and how much of an inconvience it is to be without it this week, I got an email from apple. My ibook was not only received today, but it was fixed today, and shipped out today, and I can expect it tomorrow!! And I was just reading this weekend in a Consumer Reports about apple's top notch repair service- whew. Ok. Maybe things will start to look up a little now...? [To post this I am using my very old clamshell ibook. She is tired, doesn't have much ram nor hard drive space. She really shouldn't even be running OSX and can barely handle the web browser. She's a great computer for Jo to check email on during the day but that's about it. I'm not trusting her for any major work.]
