Quick Post


The battery on my laptop is in its decline. It was a refurb to begin with, so it never lasted very long, but I used to be able to get an hour or two of work done before having to plug it back into the grid. Now I get about thirty minutes before it shuts itself down no matter what I’m in the middle of working on. I mean, it does give me warnings- first a pop up to say that the battery is getting low, and then, after about five minutes, there is a rather pointed dimming of the screen brightness, like a drama queen preparing to swoon, followed by the plunging black of a shutdown.

I’d be annoyed, except this laptop has been through a lot with me, considering that I carry it around every single day and usually use it on the bus, so it’s a trooper. It’s just beginning a trooper with a short attention span.

Anyway, I have twenty more minutes of lunch hour and no more battery life. Normally I’d wile (while?) Away the time by surfing Facebook, but that’s out for Lent. It’s only been one day. I can surely make it at least one day without it. Right?

Right?

So I figured I’d write a quick post. I started work early today, which means (I have a car here where I could go sleepDANGIT I COULD BE USING THIS TIME FOR NAPPING!) That I don’t have my normal bus ride available for writing. So I’m trying to use my time wisely. Wish I had more interesting stuff to write about, though. Life has pretty much been wall to wall payroll.
