Tentative Good News

My head and neck have been bothering me off and on all day, which is why I simply haven't gotten more done. The thing about taking pain medicine is that, when you run out, the withdrawal symptoms generally resemble those of the flu, which is basically how I've been feeling this past week or so. I'm really not sure if it's that or this crazy, up and down weather we've been having lately.

But that isn't what I'm writing about. I got some tentatively good news that I have been dying to share, but afraid of jinxing:

I may - just may, just maybe - be getting a new computer! This will be the first in nearly 10 years. "10 YEARS?!" I hear you say - yes, 10 years. See, I got my last one back in 1999 and I take pretty good care of my stuff. I guess it comes from being a comics collector, but a lot of what I have is pretty old. I just tend to take fairly good care of it... except for my couch and blankets - I burn holes in them left and right and never realize it until long after I've done it...

Anyway, this is great news for all concerned because, if it happens, I will definitely be more productive. I have had so many computer issues lately that it's really set me back for weeks on-end. I've been on this Win 98 computer now for over a month! Turns out a lot of things online nowadays simply don't want to work with Win 98 - who'da thunk it?

Anyway, like I've said, I have a lot of running around to do tomorrow, so I don't know if anything will get posted or not. Hopefully, I'll have at least one or two things to get to you, but you know how it goes. I just figured I'd come and share the good (maybe!) news with everyone, in case I pop-up and let you know I'll be offline for a day or two so I can get it all set up and working.
