Anti-computer aura

Quite unfortunately both of our computers at home are not functioning properly.  We were able to get them on for short spurts of time this weekend (20 minutes here, 15 minutes there) and inevitably they'd shut down and give us the blue screen.  My computer is 7 years old, so it's not terribly surprising, and the other one we were given for free from a friend second-hand.  We're not too upset because we've been kind of expecting them to go soon, but of course, we're always hoping we can put off buying a new computer and extend their life a little longer.  I have one more trick up my sleeve that I'm going to try and if that doesn't work I'm going to see if my brother can work his magic over the Thanksgiving weekend.  Anyway, all that is to say that Chris and I don't have much access to the computer or internet at home in the meantime (besides on his blackberry).  

To complicate things, I think my computer at work is about to die!  Last week it made a rhythmic clicking noise and then shut down, so I backed everything up and am hoping it won't fully give out any time soon.  I must be giving off some kind of anti-computer aura lately...

For now, enjoy this picture of our pumpkin before we tossed it out:
It went from being this scary, creepy pumpkin to looking like an old man who is losing his teeth!
