3 days and counting….

so it’s three days until the big kahuna contest and you may be wondering (or not, but I’ll tell you anyhow!) about my pc issues. well, my pc is officially dead. it’s in the (hopefully) tender hands of an IT fellow I know who may or may not be able to fx it by friday. so I’ve hauled out the massive, 17″ monstrosity that I use to watch netflix on and placed it on my desk to use.

the good news is that it’s got word, which my new pc doesn’t because I don’t know how to transfer the program without a disk.

the bad news is that it’s so heavy (12.5lbs) that it’s too much for the keyboard tray on my sidewalk special desk. why is that bad? well, I’ve got it on the top of the desk which means to reach it, I have to put my shiny new office chair at the top height…which leaves my feet dangling about 3″ off the floor. yeah yeah, go ahead. laugh at the short girl ;o)

long story short (or is it short story long at this point?) I do have a pc that works for the weekend. being 6 years old and subject to random shutdowns, however, I’ll be plugged into my external hd and saving directly there  and not to the pc itself to make sure nothing gets lost.
