Woohoo! I didn't kill my laptop. It's working fine today.
After the hard drive died on my desktop computer on Tuesday, April fools, I went and spilt some akvavit on the touch pad of the laptop. Since I killed a laptop last year with a glass of wine (and the smart phone almost died when it hopped in the toilet), I knew not to tilt the computer. Turn it off and let it dry for 24 hours. Yeah, I think I will stop drinking booze near computers.
In just over 30 years of owning personal computers, last year was the first time I ever spilled on a computer or even damaged one.
So, yesterday I just hid by reading a good book. I checked my email, Discuss Cooking, and Facebook on my phone. It's just not the same.
I am now eager to get back to tax returns.
