Most cherished laptop is sick and had to be taken into emergency at Apple Store in Stanford Shopping Center. I mean, the laptop was so sick they wouldn’t even let me bring it home for one more day to prepare loyal blog readers; it had to go into surgery forthwith, borne away by two “geniuses” — and, I kid you not, this really is how they refer to their repair experts in the Apple Store: as geniuses. Steve Jobs, you’re such a card!

I had to bring the sick little thing to a counter called the “Genius Bar”. There, a girl with a sign saying “Genius” on her T-shirt came up to me, and she did look like a genius, as she had a pasty complexion and wore glasses (though could not determine whether or not she might be a Stanford grad).

She tried to entice me to go for the “Procare” service, which would mean advancing to the front of the repair queue (heard another genius ominously declare, “Five Procares in the pipe!”), but would cost me $99 per year. Still, such was my desperation that I actually felt my fingers begin crawling toward my credit card. At the last moment stopped, decided, NO! Perish the thought. Hubby would have a fit. Which helped immeasurably to steel my fortitude.

See, self wanted to explain, I am only a not-very-successful writer with a shark-like blog (there I go again, back to the “shark” reference. Blog, please forgive me)

Don’t worry, loyal blog readers. I will just go to the Redwood City Library every day to blog, such is my dedication to my loyal reading public.

Stay tuned, dear blog reader, stay tuned.
