2008: A South American Odyssey
Question: How do we know that 2001: A Space Odyssey is fiction?
Answer: Because a computer takes over the world.
A computer could never take over the world because it would break, JUST LIKE MY COMPUTER. Or the battery would go from charging great one day to not working at all, JUST LIKE MY COMPUTER.
Yes folks, the reason I haven't been blogging is my computer, aged only 9 months, has died the death of deaths--the hard drive caput suicide mamba of phooey-ness.
Oh Karen, you may ask, not with ALL YOUR PICTURES FROM SOUTH AMERICA ON IT?
I can't even type the answer. I hope, I hope, I hope that I can get this baby fixed enough back in Texas to eke out my photos. The good news: A few photos Krista had saved to her iPod; a few I had sent to various students; a few were posted on the blog. Those thoughts are helping me not cry my eyes out right now.
I was taking fewer pictures than before, by the way, because MY CAMERA DIED TOO. Yep.
A computer will take over the world? Ha. Hal Schmal.
