Forced Temporary Hiatus

Bad news: My hard drive is fried. I can either get it fixed for $175 (an all-new hard drive) or buy a new computer (well, refurbished).

Anyway, I'm coming to you lot on hands and knees for suggestions on computers, as I normally just use email, graphics programs, Word, and AIM. Anything more than that and I get confused and fed up. It's so bad, I'm considering getting a computer with (dun dun DUN!) WINDOWS VISTA!

Good news: I'm getting so many ideas for future Shelf Lives. I need to start writing them down!
dw - donna - oh noes!


Okay. First my camera batteries died. That was three weeks ago. I bought batteries. All's well as ends well.

Two weeks ago, I did the Post of Death. 107 pictures. I will never forget. I have nightmares where I'm being chased by plastic action figures that inch along the ground. I took a break.

This past week was that break. I took it to write fanfic and breathe and generally not have to play with the Shelf People and come up with ideas.

I go to turn on my computer today, and GUESS WHAT. It's broken! It won't even show the desktop. The Evil Message shows up before then and my God I'm not even using Windows Vista. IRONY.

So I'm talking to people tomorrow (couldn't work anything out today). Might have to take it into the shop Monday. Basically, I'm not sure when I'll get my computer back, so I'm not sure how long it will be before the next installment. I just wanted to let you guys know, and thanks for... everything. I hope to make it up to you when everything's up and running again!
