A Miracle! No, two miracles!
I know, I said I was swearing off the computer until Monday. But I had to look up a phone number from an e-mail. And also I was eerily drawn to it; it was like the virus had wound its creepy tentacles into my brain as well as my hard drive. I had to see if those popups were still real or if I'd dreamed it all.
Thanks all for your good wishes. Especially Suzanne, before whom I bow down in gratitude for her computer expertise. (And all you Mac fans, boy do I hear you, in fact our official home computer--the one that blue-screened and is now in the repair shop--is one. But this is my work computer so I have no say in its make. And we're in M1kerosoft territory, you know; we don't cotton to no Macs around these parts.)
But I have learned my lesson. I'm turning OFF the computer now. And taking a nap!
Oh but I have to say before I sign off that the long-awaited Nat is here!! Yippeeee! Go congratulate the happy moms!
