welcome to our humble abode...where electronics come to die.

please leave all cell phones, ipods, cameras and anything else battery operated at the door. or bring them in at your own risk.

last night my hard drive died.
shortly after we moved in matt's computer crashed.
and and and his razr is dead and gone, too.

thank GAWD it was my computer hard drive that dies, because all of my pictures are on my portable one. I last backed that up in july, and let me tell you, I'm backing it up right now, too. but MAN. guess I shoulda sprung for the continued warranty when I sent my computer in to be fixed before because I already paid them $50 just to talk to me, and now I have to pay another $170 for a new hard drive.

Anyone in the area know a good computer person? I'd be happy to go to someone other than Dell if the price is cheaper, I just don't know where to start. I guess I could call the geek squad?

Hey Rie, Shoot me an email detailing what's up with your HD & from there I might be able to help or send you to someone who can.

I read this and thought of you:

Perfect (Soft, Cheap, Organic!) Tee

Okay, I’m aware that T-shirt season is soon to end, but I find that I always want a soft, stretchy tee next to my body, even if it’s layered under various warmer items. So, I am extremely excited about the new organic tees I just bought from American Apparel. The Organic Baby Rib Basic Short Sleeve Tee is just-snug-enough and feels like a French or designer one that you’d usually have to pay $30 for at Barney’s, or whatever your local Barney’s-equivalent is. But it’s just $15 and organic to boot! I’ve bought organic tees from American Apparel before, but they were a little too utilitarian (I think they were the Organic Fine Jersey tee, which has more of a unisex, Hanes feel). These are much more stylish. They only come in “natural,” not pure white or any colors, but natural is the new black for green girls, right? Tip: if you do order one online, order big. I am certainly no D cup, and the Large is on the small side for me, so I might order an XL when I order more—which I’m going to do right now, lest they sell out!
