Zombie Computers Must Die

My computer died. I really need to quit talking about zombies so much, because I make them sound cool, and then all of the electronic devices in my house want to join the ranks of the dead and semi-resurrected. Which is decidedly NOT cool. You hear me, washing machine? Don't cave to peer pressure!

Anyway, I went through purgatory (otherwise known as the tech support line at Comcast cable) just so's I could get internet access long enough to download a few essential things and write to you so you don't think that I turned into a zombie and abandoned you. You hear that, HUUUUUNGH the minivan? You've abandoned me!

I feel so betrayed.

But seriously. I shall not be around much until my computer is (hopefully) restored to me, because the laptop is ridiculously slow. I hope it's not turning into a zombie.

As long as it is not a virus that turns your stuff into zombies the rest of us are in good shape.

The Comcast 'support' line is, quite possibly, the world's most frustrating experience. Enough to cause yelling, expletives & phone throwing. And I don't yell...ever.

Oh no! Well, at least you've got the laptop, even though it's slow. I'd go through serious withdrawls if I had no computer, and no internet access at all. Three days and I'd be a twitching in a corner, drowning in my own drool.

Can't you sacrifice a virgin to it or something?

K.C. Shaw said...

Yikes! I hope you get it up and working again soon. Those zombie computers really suck. (Oh, wait, no, vampires suck. Zombie computers just eat your FIIIIILES.)

Rena said...

Oh no, Carrie! Been there, done that. I still haven't gotten the hang of our new system. I'm not one for change, I guess.

Good luck and I hope you're up & running again soon.

Lady Glamis said...

Awww, good luck, Carrie! My computer did this to me last year. Didn't have a blog back then, thank goodness. I back everything up now. It wasn't a good experience.

Hope all goes smoothly.

Ugh, sorry!!!! Hope it gets fixed soon and isn't too painful or zombie-ish. Sending some chocolate your way!

Christina Farley said...

I'm sooooo sorry! That is just aweful. I hope you got to recover your work.

To cheer you up, I've nominated you for the Kreative Blogger Award! Zoombie fanatic and all!

Oh so NOW you remember the whole thing about zombies and the curse of their revenge and how they can invade machines. Sure, NOW you remember...

There is NOTHING more frustrating than computer problems. Good luck!
