Light at the End of the Computer Tunnel

I'm sitting at the library right now, feeling rather gleeful that I got here just at the right time when there was one computer open. Now I get an hour of computer playtime and then I'm off to the ballet which should help the computer twitchies substantially.

Althought it is interesting that other than checking my email and coming over here to update my blog and check out everyone else's postings, I really can't think of anything else that is so critical as to warrant the computer twitchies. Which goes to show me that I've been using the computer a lot just because its there, not necessarily because I need to actually use it. Plus not having a computer helped get my grocery shopping done for the week..I was out of the house by 8 am today. On any other Saturday, I'd still be in front of the computer, most likely playing games.

That said, I'm feel rather grateful that there appears to be some light at the end of the computer tunnel. Our company tech guy was trying to help me troubleshoot by email at work and told me that if I could bring in the computer to their offices, he would check it out and see if it could be fixed or at least have my lost files transferred to a CD...and no charge too, bless him. Then my boss said that if my computer could not be fixed that I could borrow one of the work computers and take it home with me until I was able to afford getting a new one of my own...and she even knew that it would take at least 6 months or until I got my bills under control again whichever comes first. That's something I definitely need to keep in mind the next time I'm tempted to complain about all the things that she's doing that are driving me nuts.

Things could be worse. I must remember that.


  1. In spite of all their quirks, it sounds like your co-workers are good people deep down. Hope you enjoy the ballet!

  2. Palidor- I think most people at heart are good deep down, at least when they let their guards down long enough for people to be able to see it. At work though it's rare to get those connections but once it awhile you get surprised.

    Cathy- The ballet was great...I have seats in one of the side sections but in the first 5 rows so I actually get a very good view..all for 25.00 per ballet. Yesterday was Othello and the dancer playing Othello was GORGEOUS. If you have a chance, check him out at the Joffrey webpage under Fabrice Calmels.
