I've finally done it.  
I killed Aidan. I killed Aidan because I can't turn my head to the right.

Um... Hey, Carrie Leigh, want to explain?

Sure thing, y'all. I'll do my best.

Aidan is my super cute and sexy HP Pavillion laptop, for those of you who were considering calling 911 and reporting a murder.

So the story is that I woke up with a stabbing pain in my neck/back (Again, I say to you twenty somethings, ENJOY your youthful body. About 35 things start breaking). And so I plugged my heating pad into the same extension cord as Aidan and when I went to adjust said pad so that I wasn't in excruciating, stabbing OHMYGOSHTHISSTINKINGHURTS pain, Aidan took a swan dive and landed on the lovely, distressed and very hard hardwood floor of my bedroom.

*tragic wail*

He's with Matt the Computer Guy now, and in good hands. But I'm afraid, my friends, that he isn't going to pull through this one. He didn't look good at all. If a laptop could've been pale, he would have been.

After I took Aidan to the hospital, I went to the chiropractor, and he cracked stuff, I whimpered, stuck these electroshock thingies on me, I whimpered, and then sprayed Biofreeze in the general vicinity of my neck and back, and I howled. It currently feels as if my back is aflame. I want to go throw myself into the nearest snowbank and make it GO AWAY.

Instead I've got some ice and another appointment on Monday. And no laptop. *another tragic wail* So if I'm scarce, that's why.

Now I'm off to teach acting to the children of Amarillo. Have a better day than I have, everyone!

Poor Aidan! I hope he pulls through. And I hope your neck feels better soon.

I'll pray for Aiden.

You have a nice big glass of wine (or two) when you get home. With painkillers. Doctor's orders.

*blinks* ... DOOD. No laptop. ... *sends supplies for oncoming withdrawals*

*SMOOSH* I hope your neck feels better sooner than later (and just be glad it's not an every day thing.. sports massage+electric therapy+biofreeze = 'okay! you're ready to hit the field now kid, get to it!' ... URGH)

*hold gently*

Dude, that sucks. MAJORLY. I hope you feel better soon, and that Aiden is returned in once piece.

I know how you feel; Edgar has been REFUSING to boot up. Luckily I have techgod programmer friends - thejazyfizel's boyf is gonna back up the hard drive for me so I can reinstall windows and HOPEFULLY my baby will come back to me. Long enough to tide me over until new laptop time, anyway. In the meantime I'm limping along on Mum's old one. (which actually downloads faster, shhhhh).

Hope the class goes okay and the kids don't take advantage of your pain to muck around! *snuggles*

at first i was like "Wait! is she talking about her son??" i'm very sorry to hear about your computer. that really sucks.

the back/neck is horrible. i had herniated discs once after a car wreck & it was worse than giving birth. at least that ended in a reasonable amount of time and i got an awesome baby out if it. my chiropractors are big on holistic stuff, so i got biofreeze & some herbs, but i ended up in the ER for pain and got shots in my booty and prescriptions for 2 types of pain killers & muscle relaxers. i hope you feel better very soon.

Poor Aidan!

I hope you're feeling better sooner rather than later too!

You poor thing! I hope you feel better soon. And yeah, the same goes for Aidan too. *hugs*
