Mac update

So I got the call from Tech Superpowers yesterday. They can't recover the data. I'm having them send the drive to drive savers, the place Apple originally recommended to do the data recovery. I'm now looking at a recovery cost of up to 3,000$ And unfortunately, damnit, I still think it's worth it. I can't replace some of that data. I just hope they can recover it. Now I'm looking at a week+ turn-around time, but the drive replacement and drive transportation to and from California.

I'm not whining, really, but I miss my computer. Especially when I'm sick, 'cause I always wake up in the middle of the night and want to do something with it. Like last night.
I'm waiting

Yesterday

Arrive work at 6:30.
Leave work at 11:30 sick as a dog.
Go home. See hoppie off to work.
Have lunch.
Talk to Tech Superpowers (see previous post.)
Sleep from 1ish to 3ish.
Meeting from 3:00-3:45.
Read Sharpe until 6ish.
Get ready for dinner.
Elaine picks me up for dinner.
We pick up Joan.
We meet Rich and spend many hours catching up and sharing evil old workplace stories.
Get home around 10:00.
Go to sleep. Sleep until like 1ish.
Hoppie wakes me up by turning on the Sox game.
Sleep a bit more. Hoppie tells me the Sox won their game and that he's been watching it on mute so as not to disturb me.
More sleep.
Wake at 2.
Can't get back to sleep for anything. Coughing constantly has given me a headache too.
Go downstairs at 4:00 to try to find medicine for anything...cough, headache, mallet to knock myself out with. I'm not fussy at this point. Also, for the last hour or so, I've had lines from Unbreakable running around in my head and I'm convinced, if nothing else works, the mallet will fix that.
Find my winter supply of cough medicine. Down a respectable dose. Still can't find headache meds. Decide that's good enough and go back upstairs.
Feel bizarrely sick after taking meds. Wonder if the meds have turned. Then feel okay and sleep until 7:00.
Wake up coughing.
My dreams seemed to repeat themselves and involve people in the witness protection program. Odd and not interesting, even to the sleeping me.

It's always about you

Respond to this post and I will give you the three words that I think MOST accurately describe you.
The cost? You have to return the favor by posting this in your own journal.

My parents got off okay

For everyone who was worried about my parents making their flight to Florida okay, you can stop because Robin's Benjamin is on their plane and he'll take good care of them and make sure they get there safely.
