The Unauthorized Biography of Rosco P. Coltrane

When it's my moment in the sun, I won't forget that I am blessed, but every hero walks alone, thinking of more things to confess

My Laptop Caught On Fire

If Tuesday wasn't crappy enough, I went to post my next post on my Oaxaca trip and right before I hit the post button my screen went blank. Oh no, I thought. It happens every now and then. My laptop is old and the screen goes on the fritz sometimes. So I touch the screen and I think to myself, wow my laptop sure is hot. Then I saw the smoke. Then I smelt the burning plastic. Then I unplugged the laptop. But the smoke just kept rolling out of it. So, my laptop is pretty much toasted. I might try and see if I can hook up an external monitor so I might be able to save some of my writings, but it might all be lost. I am supposed to be getting a new laptop in the next day or so, hopefully this one will not spontaneously combust...
