Still in Limbo

Hello, friends.
Coming to you live here, amid the racket of simulated gunfire in this Internet cafe!
[At least I HOPE it's simulated!]
How can people play video-games all night long?
It mystifies me.
But then again, I'm sure they would all ask me... "How can you read so much?"
Speaking of which, that is what I did tonight... sat at a Starbucks and drank a pail of coffee while reading a terrific book.
I wish I could at least post the image here but I am on a remote computer and cannot re-size photos and stuff.
I'm really enjoying John Irving's, A Widow For One Year.
I find him to be a fabulously engaging storyteller. This is my third book by Irving, and I have enjoyed the other two and I know that this one is going to be great.

As for my computer, umm... suffice it to say it is not fixed yet.
It is amazing to me that places do not stock internal hard-drive components for laptops.
I've been having a difficult time getting the thing fixed.
Soon, sometime next week, I think I will be back in business!
Wishing you all the best.
Have a great weekend! And... HAPPY READING!

My (work-issue) laptop also fried last weekend. It's unsettlingly devastating but kind of liberating at the same time. Good luck!

Sorry you are still having computer woes. I just got a new macbook over the weekend. Oh it is lovely and so far, knock on wood, is working like a dream. Hope you get yours back soon!

So are you still hanging out in the library? Meeting any hot literary chicks there? C'mon – dish the details!

I loved Widow for One Year, it's one of my all time favorites.
By the way, if prople around you are ducking under their table the gunfire is likely not simulated. That's you cue to do the same.

Thank you all, for all your well-wishes.
I seem to be back and running, now.
