This Christmas was definitely one of the strangest on record. While Montana weather is always sporadic, rarely do we such an extreme get a warm snap. It was around 50 degrees on Christmas- it was amazing.
In other events, my Grandma got sick and headed home Christmas morning after we opened presents. It was the first time she had missed Christmas dinner since I was born.
Later, after lunch, I was working on my dads old school convertible. We needed the battery charger which had gotten left in our boat. I climbed up on the tongue of the trailer to try and reach the charger. Abruptly, my foot popped off and my shin slammed/slid down the trailer gashing open my shin to the bone.
I grabbed a Red Bull and headed to the ER for 17 stitches, 6 internal and 11 external. It was my first ER visit since I cut my head open in the 1st grade.
We got back in time to have a great Christmas dinner and I headed for home. While making some Merry Christmas calls, I found out one of my good friend’s parent had gotten hit by a drunk driver on Christmas Eve. Everyone lived though the drunk car had to get medivac’d from the scene, and my friends family had bunches of stitches and some broken ribs.
Right after that I found out another friend had just gotten done playing referee over a Family dispute over dinner.
So that was Christmas 2005.
The next day I booted up my computer to get some work done only to have the whole thing short out when I tried to insert a CD. Sweet.
After a call to Apple Care and to my Apple Buddy, I was left with few options other than send it to Apple and be with out a computer for a week. In order to avoid losing all my data, I tore into the PowerBook this morning. I got it apart and disconnected my SuperDrive and poof it booted right up.
I spend the next few hours backing up 40 gigs worth of information and I am back on track sans SuperDrive.
Needless to say I am SUPER SUPER SUPER excited to get the computer working again and all my data backed up.
I am confident New Years will be better.
