Friday Randomness

Okay, okay, this isn't too random. But you may have noticed I haven't been able to blog or comment much this week.

Why? Because....the dadgum power cord on my laptop futzed out. Again.

If you use a laptop, always make sure it's plugged into a surge protector. Because no matter where you live, power surges will occur, and it will short out your cord. Very frustrating.

So, right now I'm using SoldierMan's laptop, which is great, but it's not the same, you know?

It's amazing what you can get done when you don't have a computer always within arms' reach. Or maybe that's just me.

Anyway, that's meant some time off from blogging and writing....which I really didn't plan on or want, but the only copy of my manuscript I have is on my laptop. Yes, that will be changing.

In the meantime, I seem to have picked up some new followers recently. So, welcome to you all! Please introduce yourselves below so we can all get to know each other. And check out the links in the upper-right column, which is the best way to get to know Me and My SoldierMan.

Hopefully next week I'll have some more stuff for you - news and reviews and that type of thing.

Have a great weekend!!


  1. I feel like I have the WORST luck with laptop chargers, so I know how you feel :/ I actually just purchased my very first charger with a surge protector, but as fate would have it, the stupid thing doesn't 'fit tight' the way it should so it's constantly falling off. UGHHH!!

  2. I went through 3 laptop charges in a month when we got our kitten. He decided they were food, why he never got shocked - I'll never know....

  3. Ugh, that completely stinks about your power cord. I never even thought about having my laptop plugged into a power strip. I will be looking into it now. Thanks!

  4. Bad luck with the power chargers. Not cool.
    A friend of mine had her laptop charger burn out twice in a week. We couldn't figure out what happened.. checked all the fuses and the power in the house etc. THEN it finally clicked - one of her dogs did not so much like the visitor who was staying in the house at the time and peed on the laptop charger when said visitor was using it! Hilarious! We decided it was best not t mention it to the visitor...

    Hopefully that's not happening with Jeb or Achilles, though!
