Hold me. My Albert is in the hospital.

Albert is my 4 year old iMac. He wouldn't wake up this morning. Just stared at me with that unblinking, Apple shaped eye. After taking his temp and trying some home remedies, it looks like he's got a bad HD.

The nurse told me he'd be there for at least 48 hours (2 working days, or 50 years in nerd time.). It will more than likely be 4-5 days before he can come home.

My husband will be devastated. I'm going to have to watch TeeVee with him or let him watch me play video games. Poor guy.

I'm not even at home and I can already feel the deafening silence, the empty space on my desk, the brightness of the small lamp behind where he would sit.

I'm scared.

My son's best friend just made me cry.

My son moved to MO a year ago with his wife. His bf from the Marines had gotten him a job there. I was supposed to go see them this summer with a side trip to Chicago to see my sister, but the money gods had other plans. I miss them so much it hurts. On top of that, life has just been downright disappointing, lately. I've been freakin' sad.

His buddy just texted me and asked if I could get a long weekend for my son's upcoming birthday. He wants to buy me a plane ticket.

Damnit. I don't know what to do. His buddy just bought a house, a new dog, a new bike, etc. I hate thinking of him paying, but even $281 is a lot of money for me, at the moment. I was also (lying to myself) and saying that I would save up the money to take a week off and see them next spring and then drive over to see my sister. This would sort of negate that whole scenario.

I need some happy in my life. I don't know what to do. Crap.

I'm not sure how to do this.

I'm having a really bad week and today just got worse. I could use a positive thought or sumthin'. I'm not one of those people that asks for whatever it is I'm asking for, so it makes me feel a little uncomfortable. I'm pretty damned sad, though, and have no one to talk to that wouldn't spill it to everyone else (small towns...yuck).

Pics of pygmy goats will help, too. Jokes, whatever.

Edit: This place is awesome. Thank you.

I was going to start an appreciation thread...

...but, apparently, many DUers have that word trashed. I was afraid you might be one of them.

Instead, I want to (again) thank you, EarlG and Elad. With your Ninjaspeak skills, EarlG's wit and useful insanity, and Elad's willingness to have DU permanently connected to his brain, the three of you are the Perfect Storm of DU and Discussionist.

Thanks for not letting me get bored at work.

About Malaysia

While we're all trying to find out which country/side is to blame in the destruction of the Malaysian flight, I noticed that not many were talking about Malaysia. I admit, I know little...almost nothing...about Malaysia, except what I've learned from playing Civilization IV. I still know little, next to nothing, even after doing a tiny bit of research.

There are only a handful of pics of the mourners in Malaysia, but that handful of pics made my heart break for a country and it's people.

This is the second tragedy for this not so little country. An unwarranted, terrible tragedy. So, let's think about them for a minute and forget that there are selfish and arrogant people in this world that just made Malaysia an unintended target for their agenda.

(Please excuse the links to Wiki and Tourism. Doing a search for Malaysia brings up pages of news and little else. I'm hoping our DU geniuses will fill in some holes.)

Didja ever...

...start to post a comment in GD that you thought was funny and then stop yourself because NO FUNNY!!!1!1 and you knew you'd get slaughtered?

Yeah. Sometimes I (almost) forget. Now I'm sad.

On a possibly related or not note...what is really 'off-topic stuff'? Isn't everything, once posted, on-topic stuff? So, are we actually all breaking the forum purpose rules? Are we really just rebels? Do we need a battle cry?

Can you tell I'm bored and watching the damned clock?

Happy birthday, MFM!

The husband and I will be headed out to Tucson in about 2 hours to celebrate your birthday with a girly drink! I still wish I hadn't waited this long. You should be pretty proud of yourself for making me confront my social anxiety.

Miss you.

Where is Grantcart?

Last post January.

I'm suing Ron White.

For the second time in less than 3 weeks I've said 'coupin' instead of coupon. In public. Or, pub...lic. It's embarrassing and has tarnished my image. I've been brainwashed.

Are we turning into another GD??1!!1

The battle between cat lovers and dog lovers is getting out of hand.

Dog people should just give up and accept the fact that cats rule, dogs drool and prevent a GDesque war.
