(And, no, that doesn't make 41 visits to various hospitals and clinics in the past two months... because it is now February... we're starting a whole new month!)
They figured out why my screen goes really fuzzy 90% of the time.
|Doctor, doctor, gimme the news...|
To have them fix it right then would've cost me a little over $500... If I let them ship it off-site to repair it, the cost would only be about $300... and if they found anything else wrong, it would all be fixed for that same price of $300... so that is less bad...
I tend to think of this as a new computer... but it's not by technological standards! The computer is nearly five years old... they were not sure it would be worth investing that kind of money into it. I could, instead, put that $300-$500 toward a new MacBook Pro... I think the cheapest one is $1200...Any thoughts? I would love some advice...
2. About a week and a half ago I bought my new cookware...
I discovered that my new cookware is multi-functional.
Well, you should probably just watch this for the "bad" piece of this story... I just leaned my phone against something on my counter... so it's not the best... but it is short:
Guess how I found out how sharp the edge was on that pan? Yep...
So... I finally figured out what I want to do for cookware. (Yes, you're right... I thought I'd already figured this out... but I definitely changed my mind after this whole slice and dice thing.)
The sales people at Williams Sonoma were wonderful about the whole return.
So I used my new, new cookware... to make some delicious gumbo for the Super Bowl... in honor of it being held in NOLA... well, that and the fact that when I make gumbo I get to stand in the kitchen and slice, dice, cook, and stir for quite a long time... and I may or may not drink wine during this whole process...
|I like to add a lot of cayenne pepper to mine.|
Last week I mentioned the Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs and Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce I made for supper... Tomorrow I hope to have figured out how I made those things... so I can share the recipe with you. Yes, I had a recipe... but, no, I didn't have all the ingredients... so I ad libbed. Big surprise there.
Have a great Monday!
