I’m back—didja miss me?

I got my laptop re-imaged, so I’m back up and running pretty much 100%. Unfortunately, I don’t have a sequel for The Day the Laptop Died, because… well, because nothing exciting really happened after that. Sequels are often boring, but this would be even worse:

  • The Day the Laptop Died 2:
  • Electric Boogaloo
  • Written By
  • sernaferna
  • Based on a True Story
  • int. serna’s home
  • SERNA sits at his desk. Spybreak! by Propellerheads plays as a soundtrack, over inter-cutting shots of serna backing up his data
  • ext. the car
  • serna drives to the office, with a determined look on his face
  • int. the office
  • serna
  • Here’s my laptop
  • Helpdesk Personnel
  • We’ll get it back to you soon!
  • int. the office – a few hours later
  • Helpdesk Personnel
  • Here you go!
  • serna
  • Thanks!

See what I mean? None too exciting. I’m not expecting The Day the Laptop Died to do that well at the box office—maybe a hundred mill, just enough to break even—but The Day the Laptop Died 2 (Electric Boogaloo) just isn’t worth making.

But enough of that.

I found out today that another person reads my blog. I’m soon going to develop a complex. It’s one thing to be an author, and have thousands of people read your book; I had editors helping me with that, and they didn’t let me make too much of an ass of myself. But it’s a weird kind of feeling to know that this blog post, that I threw off in a couple of minutes, will be read by a bunch of people. None of whom will be amused. Heh.

Oh, and for those of you who actually read the serna Bible Blog, now that I’m back up and running with my laptop, I’m sure I’ll go back to updating that regularly too.

Hmm, anything else, before I post this and go and grab a coffee? I’m thinking about picking up a laptop, while the “Back to School” sales are still going on. Staples has a really nice one, for a great price. If I do get it, I’m sure one of my first steps will be to install Ubuntu on it, and make it a dual-boot machine, so that I can keep playing with Linux.

Okay, that’s about it. More posts when I have more to write. Try and contain your enthusiasm!
