That’s the sound I make when my laptop starts to die a slow death, and it has happened before. So when I turned my laptop on this morning and it decided to switch itself off for no good reason, I started to panic, then I started to make this noise;
So then I spent a few hours backing up all of my files in the horror of horrors that my PC is slowly dying. It is over 4 years old, and in laptop years, you could say it’s ‘getting on a bit’. If my laptop was a hollywood actress, it would be on it’s third face-lift by now. BUT it’s my trusty comp, I can’t give up on it now!
And so, I spent hours making sure that I have all my work backed-up, as losing my drawings and photos would be a travesty. Well, I’d definately be peeved. So now it’s 6.30pm, I have just finished backing up, and my computer actually seems to be doing ok. I am about to search for the source of the problem, but am tapping the keys with the lightest of fingers. Ooooohhh, don’t want to wake the monster and have it LASH out by shutting down on me again… like a hand the the face; “Talk to the hand, I’m shutting down”.
Phew, it seems to be working. But as you can see, after all this caffuffle, bother and worry, I have not had a chance to draw and post my Shoop doop de doop comic today. And THAT’S why it’s late Miss.
(alternatively, the dog ate my laptop?)
