I cant tell you how liberated i feel right now. its like i am wearing no pants.
heres what happened.

My computer (home computer) is a laptop. I try to spend as little time on it as possible since i sit at Tammy my work computer all day long (dont ask how my work computer got this name) so when i get home i really am not in the mood to put myself in front of a monitor, although i allways end up doing it.

Anyway, Last night i was just about to post a reply to the multible fire head thread in Technical Discussion when my father brought me in a hot beverage. he put it down next to my laptop then held out a packet of tim tams for me to take one. Well, when he reached down with the tim tams he knocked the drink over and it went down through the keyboard right into the inside of the computer. Needless to say it went POOF and is now no longer among the living.

At first i was a little shocked (you would be too) but then i went through all the data i had on this computer in my mind and realised theres nothing on there that will be missed or cant be replaced.

So i grabbed four juggling balls and an acryllic and went outside and juggled for two hours then had an early night to bed biggrin

I will probably get a new computer sometime soon because i need a computer to upload songs to my iPod but right now i really dont miss it.

Perhaps it was a blessing from buddha. cause now i have more time for my poi and juggling. Perhaps i will invest in some fire torches

Yeah, i had no doubt that data retrieval wouldnt be a problem.
i just dont think i am going to bother. It was due for a format anyway and there was nothing muy impordante on it anyway

I swear that one day my housemates will come into my room to find me with my head through my monitor.

I have a TFT.

Freud's got a point there....

but really, it's amazing the things you do when the computer's not working. Sometimes I actually get bored enough to work on my unicycling/juggling/poi ubblol juggle I'm sorry to hear about your lappy though. Oh and mine has a name too. Naming inanimate objects is totally normal and everybody knows it

ARE YOU FOR REAL?????

Tim tams are the most delicious chocolate biscuit to ever walk this earth by the grace of Jah.

I'm sure my father feels guilty. But feeling bad about it isnt going to bring it back. He's just seeing if insurance will cover it or something like that. I'm sure he'll buy me a new one.

Anyway. My fingers hurt from spinning poi, i think i will buy some clubs

Posted:Tim Tams, my friend, are a good thing. I've never actually been to austrailia to acquire them myself (doomed to be an american, I apologize), but I've have been given some and I've had--what I consider their british equivalent--Penguin bars or whatever those are called (it's been a while. anywho, Tim tams: http://about-australia-shop.com/timtams.htm

Posted:No.

Penguin bars are vastly inferior to Tim Tams as you cant suck up tea through a penguin then stuff it all in your mouth.

I think you can buy Tim Tams in some Safeways stores.

Have a search on the web for places in england where you can get them.

Posted:Agreed, penguins are inferior to Tim Tams. And if I were in england, I would definitely do that....I only lived there a year. I normally live in california, but now I'm in utah for school. England is superior to u-taw.
