This Wasn't A Good Week To Stop My Antidepressants

Oh, dear readers.  My children both have a plague (symptoms: uncontrollable screaming, crankiness, coughing), and so do I (symptoms: fever, chills, desire for a stiff drink at 9:00 in the morning).  It is snowing.  Aaaaaaannnnnnd..... computer is ill with a virus and some Java ailment and I-don't-know-what in the registry, and possibly a fatal lesion in its hippocampus.

Fortunately, I backed up all 3 GB (!) of child-videos, science-y figures and manuscripts, and knitting patterns.  You know, the important things in life.  Now I must replace the programs filched from my old lab, because after fifteen hours trying to fix it, it would be easier to buy a new computer.

Alas, I have no money.

Back after I either fix it, or type FORMAT C:  ("Do you really mean it?"  "YES.")

  1. Oh dear. I wonder if the plague originated with the computer? I hope it all passes soon.
