…into my macbook pro.
So, there’s no Vivienne Viernes this week… I can’t quite access the photos on my computer, but I had this ONE on my blackberry.
Anywho, so what happened?
I made the fateful mistake of spilling hot tea on my laptop.
Yep. I did.
Kids, the tea was DRIPPING out of the battery signal button. (Dripping.)
So, I waited…
I dried it out. (A cool hair dryer, rice in a garbage bag and a fan were involved.)
And 24-hours later I turned it on and… it worked!
Sadly, my glee was short-lived. Apparently she (my computer) no longer acknowledges her power source so what does that mean? It means that my sweet little, not-yet-two-year-old macbook pro is sitting… silently… waiting to go back to Ohio next week to be [cross your fingers] fixed.
Seriously, though? The timing is actually fantastic. Thank GOODNESS we’re going back to the States next week and I can take the ‘ole computer in.
So, here I am typing away on my relic: my five-year-old macbook pro. She’s sweet. And loyal. And I’m so glad I have her. Don’t get me wrong, multi-tasking isn’t so easy on the 2006. She’s a bit slower than my new computer, but I’m grateful that I have her.
(Yep, my computers are my friends.)
So all that said:
If you own a laptop, specifically an apple — BUY an iSkin keyboard protector. I seriously think this SAVED my laptop. Sure, the battery thing is an issue — but my data is there and liquid didn’t seep into my computer via my keyboard.
‘Twill be the best $13-$20 you can spend.
