On Friday night, I was all set to work when disaster struck - somehow I managed to spill tea all over my Macbook Pro. It immediately turned itself off and I snatched it off of the desk and turned it upside down hoping that some of the liquid would drain out. Then I cleaned up the lake of tea that had formed on the desk, inching closer to our other Macbook which shares the same desk, and began googling what to do about my crisis at hand.
The silver lining: this time around, we have a functioning backup laptop, so life can continue more or less the same as always. Also, this is much more manageable than the time I smashed the laptop screen about a year ago (ironically, the laptop in question is the one I am using in lieu of the Macbook Pro) with the possibility of a DIY fix. Of course, if the motherboard has to be replaced, that'll surpass the screen replacement cost, but we'll just cross that bridge if we come to it. Finally, the Wensleydale fiber I ordered last week from Northbound Knitting arrived - what great timing! I didn't start spinning it yet, but I am very, very excited about it. So pretty!
