Quote of the Week

"Oh my ... what is that beeping?"

Geek Squad Agent

I apologize for the delay in posting my quote this week, but I'd like to explain. You see, yesterday, my new awesome laptop, Little Greeny, came down with BSOD, aka: Blue Screen of Death. Yes, that is actually the technical term. I've only had Little Greeny for about 3 weeks and I have no idea what happened. As soon as I recognized it was BSOD I called Geek Squad (came with the computer) and about 5 minutes into the convo, this week's quote was uttered. By more than 1 Geek Squad Agent. That quote was followed by:

"You need to take this into the Geek Squad guys asap."

2nd Geek Squad Agent

I had a gee? really? you don't say? moment, but I opted not to say that, as they were being nice to me. I packed up the kidlets and off to Best Buy we were, so Little Greeny could get into the computer hospital. And then I had to leave him there. So ... I am without computer for the time being. So if I'm a little lacking in my normal online-ness activities, I apologize. I am practicing my meditations so that I can stay Zen about the whole situation. Hope everyone else is having a better start to their week than I've had!

"Ohhhmmmmmmm. Ohhhhhmmmmmmm."

So frustrating! I hope greeny gets well soon!

Oh no! I hope the squad comes through for you. I'd be scared spitless if that happened to me! Ack!

Seriously, I thought I was the only one technologically cursed like this. It's why you don't see me with a laptop. PCs only. They don't blow up as easy.

But YAY that you got the warranty! Go, greeny, go!!!

lbdiamond - it is frustrating. hence the efforts toward meditating to maintain my Zen. I have to say, it is easier said than done to just sit around "ohhhhmmming."

T.Anne - I've decided that all the stress is in my head and if I think affirming, positive thoughts, all will be well. (this follows every bout of crawling into a corner and crying, of course.)

Wicked-Sassy - Yes. Go Greeny, Go! I'd rather not have to figure things out with one of your twins. And see--paying for extended warranties is totally worth it sometimes!

I don't know what I'd do without my own "Little Red". It would take more than ohhhhmmmmm's.

So good to meet you this weekend!

Erg! How annyoing. Hope Greeny is better soon. :)

WindyA said...

Brodi - You'll notice my Ohhhhmmmms get longer with each breath. I'm about to pass out. Feels like I'm missing an arm or my right foot or something.

Sara - Yes. Annoying. And a little scary at what I could lose. :( Thinking positive thoughts!

The horror! No computer? I'm so glad you have Geek Squad.

Julie Dao said...

Oh no! Feel better, little greeny! I feel like I need to go home and give MacBuddy a hug :(

Carolyn V. said...

NOOOO! That is super bad news! I hope greeny gets better soon! I don't know what I would do without my lappy. Probably cry and cry.

Oh, I hate computer woes! Good luck! :-)

Angie said...

I hope you get Little Greeny back soon. Good luck with the "Zen and the Art of Computer Absence."
