Rambling (What Else?) And My MacBook Pro

Do you know there are people who post to their blogs Every. Single. Day. I am not one of those people. Obviously. Some days, I don’t even turn the computer on. I know. Crazy me.

I had a pretty good day Wednesday, after several not-so-good ones. I unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher! Woo Hoo. I think I may have cooked something minor, like a grilled-cheese. I think. Then I wasted most of my good day with trying, for about the fifth time, to get my Mac to boot. Yes, I have a Mac. For about a year. Very steep learning curve after years with Windows, and due to feeling like crap most of the time, I haven’t even turned it on since October. Then I did. UPDATE it says. I do. REBOOT it says. Therein lies the gist of the problem. It will not reboot. I googled. Not just my issue, been a problem for at least a couple of years with people. Tried every single fix I could find. Hold these keys, power on, release keys when such and such shows up. YES! Such and such. Thank you. But nooooo. Such and such wants me to choose something from a blank page. Excuse me? There’s nothing to choose. Try many times. Rinse. Repeat. (I’d like to rinse the damn thing, let me tell you!) Googled, other people have THIS problem as well. Try a different thing. YES! Got to another place. Pick me, pick me. I pick it. This disk is locked, it says. Days of this crap. Call Apple support. YES! er, no. They hang up on me about thirty seconds in, before I get anywhere at all. THEN they send me a lovely ‘thank you for contacting us’ email. WHAT? Whatting the What What? (Stole that)

it just worksSomeone quoted something that I also said when I first got mine, ‘It just works.’ I said that. Really, I did. Except now it doesn’t. This isn’t WINDOWS. It is supposed to work. Sheesh Louise!

  1. I was going to ask you about your MacBook, how does it work and so on but now I know…What is the opposite of homesick? I came back from Stockholm yesterday and as soon as I opened my laptop I started to search for cheap flights to somewhere…please get me out of here…
