Sans Computer

It stinks to say this...but my computer was stolen.  Because my brother and I most often use his laptop (there generally isn't a need for both of us to be online at the same time), I didn't notice right away.

I'm horrified.  I'm sad.  I'm ANGRY!!

I'm angry at myself.  How did I not notice right away?!?!

I'm angry at whoever took my computer.  How dare you come into my home and do that?!?!  Did someone get in through a window that JC or I left unlocked?  Was it someone that we trusted to take care of my (still leaking) roof?  Was it a friend that we INVITED into our home?

I'm a little angry at Dell. Don't get me wrong.  I freaking love Dell.  Some people are an Apple...I'm a PC.  I painstakingly customized my computer.  I opted for bells and whistles that suited my blogging needs and the book I so desperately wanted to write.  It took me over a day to decide what cover design to use for my laptop.  I wanted something girlie...but not too girlie. (I went with abstract blue circles.) Oh, back from my little tangent.  I'm a smidge mad at Dell because they can't locate my computer.  Sure, lojack was installed.  But I only bought the plan for a year.  So, I'm sh*t out of luck.

Where does that leave me?  Well, that leaves me floating between the computers at my parents, my brother (which, isn't working so great - hence the reason for my recent discovery), and today, the lovely Kristin.  It also likely means that my plans for book writing are on hold.

(Dear Dell - If you read this...I'm open to reviewing any of your fine computers.  *hint, hint*)


  1. OH MY GOSH! That is horrible! I am SO sorry. :(

  2. I'm sorry!

    I'm no fan of Dell, my experience with them has been horrendous. I'm praying I can convince the husband to get an apple next time.

  3. I'm so sorry love! Second theft I've heard about today. Our animal shelter was robbed of tornado donations last night. Geez people. Be nice!

  4. on no!! that is terrible... so sorry this happened to you!

  5. Oh-noes!
    That sure is not funny!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  6. Hi Cole, so sorry about your computer being stolen. You don't know me, but I have been reading your blog for awhile now and really enjoy it. I saw this and it made me think of you.


    Take care,

  7. I'm nearly a week late with this but better late than never, right? So sorry to hear about your computer. I hope you filed a police report. I do hope it turns up. I would be beyond livid. I believe my Toshiba has something installed in case of theft but I'm not 100% certain. I guess I should check into that.

    I also wanted to let you know that I have missed you while I've been away from the blogging world!

  8. Oh no! I'd start looking around and seeing if anything else is missing. Hope you can figure out who took it!

  9. Oh my goodness!!! You poor thing! I swear, loosing a computer is like loosing your wallet! I feel so bad for you sweetie!!:(


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
