There is no Web Wednesday today because yesterday my computer died.
It had been ill for quite a while, and I've been vacillating between getting it fixed and buying a new one. I'd love to have a new one, but, as we've discussed before, I'm tighter than Beyonce's sweaters, and I hate the idea of spending that much money. (I'm also a techno-snob, so don't bother to suggest I could buy something low-end for cheap.) So, I kept putting it off, knowing that Something Bad was going to happen.
And, sure enough, yesterday when I got home from work, ready to finish up my assignment for Dedene, who has generously agreed to tutor me in French via Skype, my machine had blue screened, and no amount of restarts would get it past the death screen.
I'm using Old Dog's really old dog of a laptop (purchased second-hand from Ye Olde Job after the sales team had pronounced it too decrepit to use anymore) to write this, but I don't have access to my hard drive, and all the cool videos people have sent me.
So, no Web Wednesday and no French lesson today.
I loaded Word onto this chien ancien this morning, so maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to pull off Fiction Friday.
