At least I didn't die!

This May started off in a seemingly never ending way. You see I posted on May first, and didn't post again until May 13. Part of it was because of what I thought was me being sick, which in fact may have been allergies.

I had a slight fever, a runny nose, watery eyes, and sneezing that never seemed to end. I felt like crap...No wait crap probably wouldn't want to feel how I felt.

Achoo!

I said that more than anything else, and I was like that for a little more than a week. I would have thought it was the flu or something, if my friend and co-worker didn't point out that her husband was having problems with allergies, and that I could be dealing with it as well. To my knowledge I never had any problems what so ever with allergens. I wonder whats going on now.

Finally I am all better, but you know what??? My computer isn't! A couple of days ago, my computer died on me. I didn't even know it. I was lying in my bed trying to get some sleep, when all of a sudden, my door opens. "Charles did you know your computer isn't working"? I had no clue. I went downstairs and pressed the button on the tower to turn it on...NOT A PEEP! I went and got the manual to look at the trouble shooting section. It said to leave my computer unplugged for about a minute and then try turning it on. Nothing happened, so I became upset, and I didn't want to talk to anyone asking me obvious questions (your computer's not working). I unplugged it and left it in a corner and tried it the next day, still nothing. I think the thunderstorm we had the night before my computer officially said adieu struck it down.

Its funny though, I had a surge protector. Didn't I just restore it from a computer virus? Ugh...Anyways I gave up and decided to buy a new computer with my car money. I'll post about my new computer some other time. At least I will be able to play that new game Spore when it comes out, and at least I don't have to worry about color schemes and cordless mouses for the time being. That reminds me. I wonder if I can play That old Star Trek: TNG game I have that was too much for my dead computer. I'm going to find out. Most likely I can, but apparently I can't use my computer to watch LOST episodes online with there new viewer. I thought everything should be compatible with Windows Vista by now.

Never underestimate a bad allergy! I get them in the worst way, and I'm as miserable as if it were the flu. Glad you're better!

Alas poor computer, I knew him well!

I've been rather lucky with my computers over the years. Although there have been times when I wished one would "die" so I could justify buying a new one!

Welcome to the wonderful world of allergies....ain't they grand? The good news is you can cry watching sad movies and blame it on the allergies!!!!

Have a great weekend Charles!
