*iz sad*

:(

So, [profile] kronos999 and I were in our basement today watching our stock market course when, out of nowhere, the big glass light shade on the ceiling light fell down. Right onto my lap. It was kind of surprising, and kind of started to hurt as the heat of the shade penetrated my clothes, but [profile] kronos999 rescued me by picking it up with a blanket from my lap ([personal profile] diurnal_lee's suggestion). We went on to continue watching out class and everything seemed ok. Until I opened my laptop, which had been on my lap.

I guess it caught some of the blow since the screen is completely cracked. About 2/3 of it is completely white and grey with no picture, and I have to big cracks that go completely across the screen. One of them has already started flowering out black.

This pretty much kills my laptop. :(

Good thing I got my new, vidding computer yesterday.

I'm just thankful it didn't hit me on the head, since I'm pretty sure that would have meant a trip to the hospital. On the bus, in my pj pants and without a bra.

Damn, I think it's setting in slowly that I've lost my lap top. I might cry later.

:(:(:(:(

Thanks, I think it might kill me not to have a laptop. I think I might have to go out and buy some sort of replacement this weekend. I don't think I can handle the holidays without a computer.

Oh no!! I think your Gateway comps are cursed. But this may also be a sign its time to invest in a netbook.
Actually I pretty sure anything that falls from above to smite your old laptop can only mean that some sort of divine presence out there believes in you upgrading.

Ha, that's very true. Also, whenever I tell people this story, I've been throwing in your comment about smiting. :P

I can't go out at lunch to buy one since my dad's getting his hair cut *rolls eyes* (I think there are priorities here, and he's ignoring them!) but I'll be surprised if I make it through the weekend.

I know! You just don't expect things to fall from above! Also, the burning was a surprise. But... even though I have another computer, the more I think about it, the more I think I'll have to go out and buy something to replace it. I don't know if I'll be able to handle the holidays without a portable computer. Yes, that means I'm an addict, but I came to terms with that fact years ago.

*sigh*

I'm really glad it didn't hit you straight on and that you're okay. And it's double lucky that you'd just gotten another computer, but still, I'm sorry you had to go through that at all.

*hugs*

Thanks. I hadn't really even considered that it might hit me in the head until later, so I suppose in the long run a 3 year old computer wasn't too big of a loss. Also, it's only the monitor that's gone, so if we hook it up to another monitor it'll still work.

I'm so sorry :( A laptop loss is horrible.

At least it's just the monitor that died, so I can still recover everything on it.

I'm glad you're okay and I'm sorry about your laptop! You Tweeted about netbooks -- are you still thinking about that?

Heh, I caved and went out to buy one at lunch. I didn't even make it one day without a laptop before I got it replace, but I want to be able to read in bed damn it!

Ooh, what kind did you get?

I ended up getting this Asus. It was either that or an Acer, but I know Acer is a discount brand where as I had a friend with an Asus literally throw it against a cement wall and have it still work perfectly.

A broken laptop is definitely better than a broken head. Still...yikes!
