computer event...  
My brand-new Compaq laptop failed to boot up this morning. It will probably need to go back to Compaq. They said it may take 2 weeks! Grrrrr!

So, I may be fairly scarce here as most of my LJ time is at work. I'll try to keep up with you all somehow!

I was wondering about you...
I'm glad to see you're alright.
Sorry about your laptop.
Maybe it won't take as long as they say.:-)

One can only hope, but it will probably be 1 or 2 days here in the local store and then who knows how long to Compaq and back. *sigh* I'll go through withdrawls! :-(

How has your day been Jo?

Don't you have another laptop?

My day lately, don't seem to end till around midnight.
Makes that 5:30 come way early, for this old gal.
Lauren is out trick or treating with some friends, Matt is at a friends, the baby just went to bed, hubby is playing his bass & here I sit, watching CNN.
I'm cooking. Supper is running late tonight.
Goulash is what we're having:-)

Hope your evening has ran smoothly for ya!

Re: I was wondering about you...
I gave my old laptop to my son. Pam's day is almost as long as yours. I get up at 5:15 and she gets up at 6:00. She doesn't come to bed until after 11 at night, whereas I go at about 8:30 and read for an hour with lights out at 9:30. I don't think I could do the 5:30 to midnight for very long!

Our evening went very well thanks! We had good food and good company!

It must just be a Mom thing!:-)
By the time it seems, I get everybody else to bed & then do all the stuff I put off, it's just late!

Glad to hear y'all had treats & not tricks..;-)*smiles*
Happy early 30th to you two!
Hubby and I, are following close behind!

Maybe he'll let you bum it back for a while so that you don't have to wear a LJ patch or something. LOL

Nite, nite!

Oh wow Gary, that is a bummer, one that I am way too familar with. I'm so disappointed in Compaq. When it gets time to get a new computer I don't know for sure what kind it will be, but I do know for sure it won't be a Compaq. When I sent mine off last year I was a month getting it back. When I finally got it back they had took it upon themselves to do a restore which means that nothing was left and I actually wondered if it were the same computer because it didn't respond nothing like it did before I sent it off. Ok, that's enough of me griping about Compaq...LOL, hope your experince is better than mine.

Well, I already did a reload to see if that would fix it and it did not, so my data is gone already!

Two weeks will be bad enough, I sure hope it's not a month!
