Oh, happy day! It's back! My lovely little laptop is back where it belongs--squarely in my possession. It was a lo-o-o-o-o-o-ong two weeks. Outfitted with a new power board, my shiny little plastic friend has been returned.
Oh, happy day for other reasons as well! Like manna from heaven, a sofa full of beauty has befallen upon me and graced my living room with comforty goodness. The furniture whence Max has begotten now adorns our humble abode and has settled ever so nicely into its rightly occupation: giant cat bed. I did see a wee black kitty climb out from underneath the sofa yesterday afternoon, having woken from a nice sleep, and it gave me pause: certainly the inner-workings of a recliner contain metal pieces and springs which are capable of lopping the head off of a wee black kitty, like so much a zucchini? O, cruel fate why have you cursed me with the sofa of divine comfort and ass-warming, a sofa which also yearns to decapitate my feline companion? Fie, I will choose if I must; the sofa stays.
