Right after I post this, I will be dropping off my laptop for repairs.

It is my only computer.

Let's see how an academic gets along without her computer during the last couple of weeks before the semester. Should be entertaining, no?

(And yes, I did take the precaution of backing everything up just an hour ago.)

...or... maybe not. It seems that the part still hasn't arrived. Now what am I going to do with all this separation trauma I got ready?

Love that shot!
And... will it really be gone for weeks?

Harumph. I won't know for a while, because the part that was supposed to be there yesterday still hasn't arrived. So I will have my computer for a few more days, which is good.

OMG. Doesn't the uni have a loaner you can use? Gah.

That is an amazing photo, BTW.

You can get a loaner from your department, right?

Hope your August is going well otherwise. (You can do something summery, instead, right?)
