So… initially, I meant to have this post about my favorite Luvmilk Fall scents go up on Thanksgiving night, to coincide with Luvmilk’s Black Friday sale – but my SSHD had other ideas, as it went into a death spiral on Thanksgiving afternoon and just barely allowed me to run enough checks to confirm that yes, it was a disk failure and not something else, before I had to completely reset Windows to be able to get into the OS at all and backup the last few days’ worth of files. And given the state the SSHD was in, resetting Windows? Literally took two full days.
I mean, on the bright side, Black Friday is possibly the best day to suddenly need new computer parts, yeah? But it also pretty much nuked any chance I had of writing this post in time for the sale, since even with the crazy fast shipping I get from Newegg (they have a distribution center ~2 hours away), it was still a Holiday weekend and deliveries were backed up… so I didn’t get to install my replacement SSHD (and my new SSD, since I finally decided to pull the trigger on that as well after “meaning to” buy one for about a year now) until the next Tuesday.
I did also totally forget to put a bracket in my order (weirdly, I definitely looked them up, but for some reason did not add them into my order with the cables. I am smart?) and Amazon Prime saved the day, both by delivering the bracket I needed within an hour as well as a 4-pack of one of my favorite semi-local beers:
I realized I was missing something right as I was all sorted to put in my new ssd and sshd (bracket, even though I totally remember looking it up apparently I didn’t hit add to cart before ordering everything ) so hit up #primenow… and was very pleased to be able to toss in some #kentuckybourbonbarrelale alongside it for my delivery #andalsosomefritostbh #iwontlie #wishtheyhadthevanillatoo
All in all, not the worst turn of events.
So here I am, with my OS on a new SSD and my PC now all zippy because of it – let’s talk about some yummy Fall and Winter indie fragrances!
