I was without my laptop today, and thus unable to access internet. You cannot imagine the disorientation I have been feeling, all day long. I did prepare for this day. My loyal computer has been giving me the SMART warning that something had gone terribly wrong with my hard drive and that I need to back up my data and fast. I couldn’t do it fast enough, dropping everything in a flash. And still, it had to be replaced today. This feels roughly like the time when you bring your baby home, except your baby is 9 years old and you don’t want to do that ALL OVER AGAIN. No thats very much, you’ll pass. You have worked soooo hard to arrive where you, and your 9 year old baby are today. No wonder it feels like I have lost a part of me.
What this means is this. I cannot access my bookmarks without which I cannot function. Literally. Not gazing lovingly at my favourites, all snuggly on the menu bar, placed strategically at eye level. Click, click, click. Check email, facebook, news…. oh no, I can’t. I can barely remember what is it that I do on internet everyday.
To make matters worse, hubby as come home today with a case of instantaneous headache so much so that he is not doing his all time fav activity- watching telly and has decided to take a nap instead. After pathetic begging of two hours, still he is not budging. Current status: computer working, no software installed, hubby napping, kids doing God knows what & me, tearing my hair out. Somebody important could be sending me an email right now.
I cannot post as all my ideas are on a little file that is sitting safely on the portable drive.
I cannot access my to-do list. Neither can I work on my last assignment today for this term. Oh well, at least something good came out of this.
