It's like 2007 around here.

So, this might be the last post here for a couple of days.

Last night my laptop was infected by an extremely nasty and prolific virus (The Vista Security 2010 Virus). It's a sneaky little bastard. It looks just like Microsoft Security. It even fooled Will a few times as he was trying to get rid of it, and he does that sort of thing for a living.

Anyway, there was no choice left but to completely erase the hard drive and start from scratch, and that takes at least a day. Meanwhile I'm stuck using Will's old laptop, which I hate with a passion so deep that I don't have words to describe it. So, I'll be checking e-mail a few times, but that will be the extent of my computer use until I get my own computer back.

(Holy crap, I haven't used Explorer in years. It's making me violent. I need to wrap this up before I hurt someone.)

Oh, but speaking of technology and sucking, our plasma TV died on us this week, too. And of course the warranty ran out just a few weeks ago. Will can fix it fairly easily, but getting the part will take a week or so. So we've got our old 19 inch TV that we got for free at a church swap meet up in its place. I'm really kind of pissed that I'll have to watch Lost on it. Or this crappy laptop. The crazy thing is, that's the same TV we'd been using right up until we bought the plasma TV last year and it never bothered me. I even told Will I thought it was silly to spend so much money on a new TV.

But today I've been walking around the house thinking, "How did we live this way? It's like we've gone back in time to 2007 !"

(Save your breath-I'm fully aware how spoiled I am and that I shouldn't complain because there are starving kids in Africa who would kill for a 19 inch TV from the early 90's or a crappy laptop with a ridiculously small keyboard, and who DON'T HAVE THREE CHRISTMAS TREES!)

O.K., internets, I'll see you when I get back to 2010.

Dammit, where's the spell check on this thing? Stupid Explorer...
