This is another short phone-post.
My beloved evil black cat turns 8 today.
Here he is at the beach on his extend-o-leash. He's very good at walking as long as there aren't any dogs around or too many people.
Also, my laptop... back in the shop. It's not booting up again. I swear, this is one reason I dislike living in Victoria. Since it's an island, many services are... slow, incompetent, and unhelpful. After all, it took them a week to diagnose what I told them when I brought the stupid thing in... and another 4 days to replace the hard drive... 'cause they didn't actually have any in stock. Yes, one of only 2 stores which service Macs in the city. No hard drive in stock.
The problem this time is because the cable attaching the hard drive to the rest of the computer... is loose.
Yep. Seriously. It's a complete no-brainer as soon as you turn it on.
And I wonder how many days it's going to take them to figure that out after I put it on their service desk this morning and told them what the freaking problem was.
Maybe I'll see you on Wednesday?
And thank you everyone who has commented on my re-written first chapter! I have read your very helpful comments and look forward to anything else you guys have to say ;)
