WOE IS I.  

Yeah, so, there are these kids, see, who are in Africa, see, who are starving.  And I'm sitting here bitching because it'll probably take a day or two to get my computer back.

I ARE TEH INGRATEZORZ.

Anyways... dropped my baby off with some computer folks who said they'd look at it and call me with a free estimate before the day's out.  So long as this emergency surgery costs less than the price of the entire machine, and provided that they can get my honeybun into the E.R. in a timely fashion, they've got themselves a sale, damn it.  That thing is my life.  Pathetically sad but true.

I'm slightly concerned on behalf of my music and my pictures, which exist nowhere else, but even if the procedure is unexpectedly invasive and wipes my hard-drive and destroys everything I care about, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to lose any writing, because it's all either backed up on external disks or sent to [info]eltea, because that is the Tierfal Way.

Nonetheless, it's a right pain in the patootie.

...did I really just type that in a semi-public place?  Heavens.

In other news, I ran into the director of the play I was in last semester outside of Longs, so we stood there talking for ten minutes or so, me holding my gallon of milk the whole time.  Yeah.  It was legit.  That man gives hugs that make you fear for the safety of your ribs.

I think I'll attempt to type up some of the bazillion pages of written fic the weekend's train trips yielded.  It shall be emailed to myself in proper semi-kewl fashion.

I'm not sure whether I'm optimistic today, or just on crack.  The jury seems to be out on that one.  Not that that's unusual in my case...

I wrote the gospel on giving up
(You look pretty sinking)
But the real bombshells have already sunk
(Prima donnas of the gutter)
At night, we're painting your trash gold
While you sleep
Crashing not like hips or cars
No, more like p-p-p-parties

My inner grammarian is excited by your subject title. I went looking for grammar books in the library once and came across one called "Woe is I," which explained how "woe is me" is incorrect.

I don't know much about computers, but I'm thinking this is more of a change-a-light-bulb sort of operation, which probably means that your files are safe. (My computer science teacher dissected a hard drive for us the other day.)
