Can you relate?

 Nooooooooo
 
 
 
Yep, my laptop died. 
 
 
In honor of that, I thought I'd share a little song with you called "The Gates"
by DaVinci's Notebook.
Have you heard it?  I couldn't find the tune to play for you, but here are the lyrics.
Crack.me.up.
 
 
Workin' on a laptop, close to the end
Of a job I've been doin' since half past ten
I don't believe that it's frozen again
The system has gone down-o, down-o, down-o
I don't believe that it's frozen again, the system has gone down-o

So I took it down to the help desk guy
I said, “Make it better, or I'm gonna cry”
He said, “I'm sorry, your computer has died
The data can no longer be found-o, found-o, found-o”
He said, “I'm sorry, your computer has died, the data can no longer be found-o”

To the roof with the laptop I did go
Over to the edge and I gave it a throw
And when it arrived seven stories below
It really made a mighty fine sound-o, sound-o, sound-o
When it arrived seven stories below, it really made a mighty fine sound-o

Well, that didn't do enough to ease my pain
So I went down to Dulles and I got on a plane
Sayin', “This is all Billy Gates's fault

I'm gonna be trackin' him down-o, down-o, down-o
This is all Billy Gates's fault, I'm gonna be trackin' him down-o”

Touched down in Seattle and got off the plane
Hit Starbucks to get out of the rain
Paid all o' my dough for a thimble o' joe
Full o' foam and the cinnamon brown-o, brown-o, brown-o
All o' my dough for a thimble o' joe full o' foam and the cinnamon brown-o

When the Gates found out about my plan
He packed up a bag, turned tail and ran
Megalo-man took it out on the lam
And hid way underground-o, ground-o, ground-o
Megalo-man took it out on the lam and hid way underground-o

Well, the Gates been a'runnin' ever since that day
Thinks he can hide but he can't get away
When I finally find his little skinny behind
Gonna kick it all over this town-o, town-o, town-o
Finally find his little skinny behind, gonna kick it all over this town



Hope all is going well with you in your neck of the woods.
Enjoy your day. :-)

  3. I love that song!! We used to play it a lot.. and sing it a lot, but certain family members soon became tired of it! I'm sorry it died, but it's nice to hear you found a great deal!

    It was strange not to talk to you yesterday! I saw you and then.. you were gone!
