I'm Taking A Break From Coolness Is Timeless!

I had wanted to do this post to celebrate one of my favorite holidays, Halloween. I don't have a lot to celebrate right now. My computer died last night. I'm using my cousin's computer to write this message. I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm going to see if my laptop can be fixed inexpensively. If not, I'm going to have to get a new one before I start back in college the first of the year. I really didn't need this new expense. I'm not going to be able to be online much right now since I don't have my own computer. I'm going to have to take a break from the blogging world. This will be my last post for right now. I'm not going to be able to check out your blogs either for awhile. I'm so sorry about everything. I'll miss you guys so much. I'm hoping to be back as soon as I can. Take care. I wish you all the best.

Happy Halloween !

Oh..I just wanted to let you know..that Michael B. Jordan (Vince Howard on Friday Night Lights) is now on NBC's Parenthood. I really think he's one to watch for. I hope he gets more movies and TV.

Jurnee Smollett (something like that) was really good with him. And she's now on some lawyer show on CBS.

Keith:
SOrry to hear about the computer...
You take the time to get everything together.
You're in my prayers, buddy.

Hang in there, the destination WILL be worth the journey...

ANd, God willing, we will all still be here waiting.

Have a good weekend.
Stay cool.

I hope things work out for you real soon. I love the first photo of the pioneers of horror.

I just got my system back up a few weeks ago, so I know what it's like to be without.

Look forward to your return.

Take care.

Sorry to hear about your computer. I'll miss your posts. Hope you'll be back online and blogging soon, and good luck with school!

Winnie said...

Hope you manage to get your computer fixed, DEFINITELY a nightmare for a blogger!

Allison said...

Awwe, Keith, I hope that you can figure everything out with your computer and that someone can (inexpensively) fix it! Maybe someone at the college you go to is tech savvy and can help, or at a local church or something? My brother had the father of a friend of his from church fix his computer for ridiculously cheap (he did something stupid, so my parents said he had to pay for the damages himself).
Regardless, I loved all the videos you posted! Whenever I hear "I Put a Spell on You," I always think of the movie Hocus Pocus with Bette Midler - it's not an old movie, but it's from my childhood and always puts me in the Halloween spirit! :)
Good luck with everything, Keith!

Such great musicial choices and it's nothing wrong with taking a break I took one last week. It sure did enjoy it :)

ellie said...

This was a cool post! We'll miss you.

I'm taking the 30 day challenge to write a novel in 50,000 word and counting..I guess at nanowrimo..so I'm hoping I can somehow get that done.

I chose Derrick as the character for my story..sort of a story with in a story..I guess.

All the best in getting a new laptop. Who knows, maybe you can find a netbook that can do more than you think. Hope college agrees with you ..when the time comes.
