The Crisis Lingers On…

Oh people I’m so gloomy without my computer. Isn’t that terrible? It is a modern day addiction.

I am living on borrowed time on other peoples computers at the moment and I miss you all: there are a hundred and six emails I haven’t answered, so if you have asked me a question or seven in the last week, please don’t be offended if I haven’t replied- as soon as my baby comes home from computer hospital I will stay up through the night putting things right!

I’m like a lost soul. So thoroughly lost without my laptop it is hilarious: I wake up feeling kind of sick and can’t remember why and then it strikes me that it is because I have lost my life line and I have actually got to go out and do something real

I. Am. Pathetic.

    Oh Alison I know how you feel, I was without a pc at home for about 6 month this year due to a problem with our stupid internet provider. Luckily I still had my pc here at work. Bear up, I'm sure your laptop will come back soon and we are all here waiting for you!

  2. It IS a modern day addiction — especially when your work is all done on the internet. Your co-workers then become other internet business owners. Instead of having a quick chat in the lunch room, you pop into a chatroom for a bit of a water cooler skinner.
    You have my utmost sympathy and best wishes that your trusted computer will be home and well again asap.

    PS – I have finally procured my own copy of James Blunt's cd. It is now the only one I listen to — day in and day out. I am madly in love with his poetry and angst. Now to return the favor, if you do not have the cd by the group Keane called Hopes & Fears, run – do not walk – to your nearest shop and purchase it. I promise you, Keane and James will share equal air play!!
