crashing down

Everything came crashing down-- that's what I felt yesterday. I got home and booted my PC and it stuck. I think there is a virus and I cannot even scan it because I could not get to the desktop itself. It stuck in the Windows page and hung for at least 30 minutes. I did some troubleshooting with my personal tech support (a.k.a. him). I will try to do it again today. Last option would be to re-install Windows and bye-bye all files! Waaah! :(

I'm here in a computer shop somewhere trying to print out the last 4 chapters of the "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" ebook. Can you believe how I felt when I realized I could not finish reading because my computer crashed?! It's just frustrating how one relies on ebooks since one cannot afford to buy the real thing. I can't wait for a year to get the paperback!

I gave up troubleshooting the PC since I had to catch some sleep before my much-awaited Gaiman volunteers'/crew dinner. I only had 4 hours of sleep and I was tired. Then I woke up with a fever. So, I informed them I won't be able to come since it was also raining. Hah! And I thought things aren't getting any worse...


I'm feeling better now. I hope everything will be too.
