A Sad Tale

So...I have a sad story. I haven't posted lately, and there's a reason for that.

About a week and a half ago, my laptop met with an unfortunate accident. I was carrying my laptop when I knocked over a glass of water that my sister left on my bedroom floor. Stupidly, I set my laptop on the floor to try to mop up the water with a towel. I bumped the glass, and it fell the other way, splashing my laptop with the little bit of water left in the cup.

Needless to say, I panicked. I took it downstairs and opened it up to let it dry off, but I'm afraid it's a goner. Currently I've hijacked my mom's netbook, since she and my dad have been on a business trip for the past ten days.

I'm not much of a tech nerd (despite what my family thinks) but I'm pretty sure the water fried my motherboard. Since my parents left the day after the incident occured, they told me I needed to wait until they got back to make any big purchases like a new motherboard or a whole new laptop. I've been (im)patiently waiting for them to get home so I can discuss options with them, and the happy news is that they'll be home tonight. But not until about midnight. So sadly, I probably won't have a fix for at least another couple of days.

Anyway, I just wanted to explain my lack of posting, and I'm sorry there aren't any drawings in this post. They would most likely have been of me, weeping over my fallen laptop, but my mom's netbook doesn't have paintbrush on it, so...can't draw anything. You'll just have to imagine that image.
