Ladies and Gentlemen... We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties

So apparently when your screen goes all shaky and does a sort of plaid rendition repeatedly, it means that you are about to lose your graphics card... and, being an Aries, the only way I know how to fix something like that is to either hit it with something big and heavy or throw it out the window. I have been assured that this is not the best way to fix this issue. Ugh.

I thought I would take this really random period of the screen actually working, to let people know that if I am gone for a day or two, it is because my computer is dying a slow and painful death. I looked into it (with some folks who actually don't resort to fixing technical issues with a hammer) and they say that the graphics card will cost more to fix than to just replace the computer... YAY! Right, so let's hope the birthday fairy brings me something new(ish), and shiny(ish)... that has a little apple on it. Just sayin' :) If we all close our eyes and cross our fingers and toes...

Please stay tuned!

Maybe it's time for a nice, sleek, space saving IPad.......?
Good luck. You're too creative for a PC anyway ;)
