It is the nature of North Texas that one will have some wicked storms from time to time. I generally enjoy the excitement of them, although lately they just cause me stress. Like knocking out my power for a day or two, or frying my computer.
At least that's my theory why my laptop Devlin wasn't working Friday evening, because we had this wicked storm Friday morning and I was so startled by one particular bolt of lightning that I got out of bed and went sniffing about for smoke. And poor Dev, he won't even turn on. I'm worried that everything on the hard drive is gone. Oh sigh.

So no fun blog posts from me this week, unless I can squeeze it in during work (like I'm doing this one), but that will be highly unlikely. I took him in to the Apple Store and they've shipped him off to some repair facility. It's one thing to be without a computer when you're on a beach for a week or something. I mean, I get that. That's nice. But during an average week, when I'm itching to get some photo editing done.. well that's just a bummer.
But I'm hoping to use my time really wisely this week. I've deemed it "Home Improvement/Clear Off The DVR Week." Also, "Make Peach Cobbler Week." And I'll tell you all about it when I finally get back on the interwebs. How exciting that will be!
And yes, I name my electronics - more specifically, my computer and iPod - after characters from old movies. If you can tell me what film Devlin comes from, I will buy you a cupcake. Trivia!
