Theres a snake in my.... memory card?

A couple of months ago within one week both of my computers, the desktop and the laptop, crashed. Suddenly and without warning. Well sorta without warning. My desktop started turning itself off and then when turned on would get stuck at the boot up screen. We resigned ourselves to being computer-less and with our newly aquired fancy phone were able to access some internet and my email that way. Blogging became quite difficult though :-(. FINALLY we gathered enough moolah to take the desktop to the computer heros.  Yesterday they called Hubbs. I did not witness the conversation but have a feeling it went something like this:
"Mr. Simply, this is Joe Hero at computer fixers. We have your computer ready to pick up."
"Oh great! Did you find what was wrong with it?"
"It looks like the memory card was pushed out of place and was causing the system to short circuit."
"Hmmm, I wonder what would have caused that?"
"Oh, who knows. It could have had something to do with the dead snake we found inside."

SERIOUSLY>>? A snake? In my computer?? We've had lizards in our shirts, frogs on our bedstands... but a snake INSIDE my computer? GROSS. We think it must have gotten in there when we stored our stuff for a few months in small ville before moving to metropolis last fall. Which means I've been sleeping next to the remains of a slithering creature for several months. EWWW. At least they cleaned it out for us and "sanitized" everything. And I have a computer again. Which means I once again can blog :-).

Speaking of blogging this new blog is a work in progress still. I'm updating the sidebar and figuring out how to format a few things. Be patient as my techno skills are very limited!
