The Power is Back!

31 Jan

…and so is Zoltar!  Woo hoo!  My awesomely amazing friend Jeff worked his IT voodoo magic on poor Zoltar, and now he’s back with a vengeance!  W00T!

(The IT magic involved some sort of silvery goo, some *teeny tiny* screwdrivers, and copious amounts of warm chocolate – cuz that’s the way Jeff likes it!)

 

I love you, Zoltar.

Oh, Zoltar – how I love you!  How I missed you!  How glad I am to be able to blog from a linuxy laptop again!  *ahem*

A bit over the top, you say?  Oh yeah?  Well, how long have you ever gone without your lappy, eh?  Zoltar, my long lost ASUS is back from the dead!

I will not mention that I may have gotten used to using Husband’s dual monitor set up.  I will not mention that I may have gotten used to the uber-excellent screen resolution on Husband’s compy.  I will not mention that Zoltar, though excellent for my 6-months-ago average computer usage, is now fair-to-middling at handling my current computer usage.

I WILL NOT MENTION THAT ALL THOSE COOL GREASEMONKEY ADD-ONS THAT USED TO PLEASE ME ARE NOW ANNOYING THE CRAP OUT OF ME.  (I mean, pastel colored window tabs?  Come on.  What a waste of memory!)

And I will definitely, DEFINITELY not mention that poor Zoltar is sitting quietly in the living room while I blog my little blog from Husband’s dual monitor Compy of Awesomeness.  Nope.  Not going to say a word.  My lips are sealed.

 

I WILL mention the following:

1. If the power suddenly comes back on, don’t blow out all your candles at once.  Seriously.  The fire department has enough to worry about without you setting off the smoke alarm due to sheer stupidity.

 

candle party!

2. Power Outages are exhausting for kittens.

 

I can haz nap?

3. When the house is quiet, mourning doves are not afraid to land on your balcony.

 

Three tiny bits of hope, just for me!

And with that, I’m off to the yarn store to stock up on some warm fuzzies for two projects: a custom winter set order for an Etsy customer and a delicious sweater for yours truly!  Hooray!
