HEY! Have any of you seen my..........oh no.

Of all mornings, why did it have to happen this morning?

You see, my laptop has this nagging problem with its screen. From time to time it angrily flickers, sometimes fading to black, but soon returning as if nothing happened. At times I places pens or markers underneath the area where the keyboard and screen meet, in an attempt to keep the problem from flaring up.  Seriously, I do.

And, of course, it flared up in a big way this morning… right when I was supposed to be interviewing Paul Kukla of Kukla’s Korner and NHL.com fame.

Unfortunately, money is tight right now and taking the computer to an Apple store to be repaired isn’t really in the budget. I’ll continue to work on it myself, but at the moment I’m borrowing a friend’s laptop to push out the necessary communications.  Thankfully, I’ve been in touch with Paul. He’s an incredibly busy man, but incredibly gracious as well, and we’re still going to try and work something out to make him Guest #1 on the Hire Me, Red Wings Podcast. We may have to push things back a day or two, but it will happen. Oh yes… it will happen!

Until then I’m going to keep on keepin’ on.

I won’t let a minor issue like this get the best of me.
