First of all, Handsome Hubby figured out by trial and error and scans and a little cursing and finally one very drastic exorcism that the reason that my laptop was crashing like a banshee was a short in the power cord. Every time the cord went a certain way, my computer would overheat and it would read that the computer usage was 100% (even if not one program was open) and it would writhe and wail and freeze and crash. The cord's fickle positioning is why it would be fine one moment and then totally Living Dead the next. So it is currently stabilized and awaiting a new power cord... which, at $13, is a heck of a lot better than a new laptop. Unless you are visiting Rebecca's (Sonshine's) bookstore, in which case, "$13!!?!?! Are you kidding me??? What kind of racket are you running here?"
So, as I was still reeling from the ferocious awesomeness that is a working laptop (thank you, Hub, you're not an A/V Coordinator for nothing!)... I got THIS seductive little number from my favorite Palindrome, Hannah:
Isn't it pretty? Oooooooh. Aaaaaaaah!
1. Choose five followers/commenters that 'get' you
2. Write something fake (preferably not too mean) about them
3. Link to them, and link back to this post to comment your receipt of the award.
This is what she said about me:
Lindsey- is secretly one of the Sunflower people, who've infiltrated the human race and are laying the foundation of fear so we will all cower in defeat during the Sunflower invasion.
I find this at once highly amusing and terrifying. :) Hannah totally knows how I roll. I am passing this one on to the following people and you should know that:
1. Steph is currently running lines for her high school's production of Antony and Cleopatra, but she secretly plans to break character mid-show and recite a well-researched monologue about why Hatshepsut would be a much more fascinating leading lady, at which daughter Bella will break into wild applause.
2. Roxy just begrudgingly became the next Bond girl after her muse ever so lightly suggested that she should get a well-paying job to support her Nordstrom's habit... at least until her wildly successful novel hits stores.
3. Christine edged out Danica Patrick to become the first woman to ever win the Indianapolis 500 and decided to give Anna a lead foot in her novel as well.
4. In a twist no one saw coming, Talli killed off her main character with a pair of razor-sharp hair scissors and then laughed maniacally as she tossed back Salt and Vinegar kettle chips as her last meal before the Big House.
5. Rebecca 's novel hit big and whilst visiting her old stomping grounds, the bookstore, she asked the barista for some tea. She was mistakenly given coffee, which she promptly spit on the place she found most appropriate, a copy of Pride and Prejudice.
Thanks again, Hannah! :D
