"i'm not a invisible. i'm sort of just hidden. like a chameleon, but without the taste for insects." - elizabeth crane, when the messenger is hot
"why was fabulousness important? the world was a scary, sad place and adornment was one of the only ways she knew to make herself and the people around her forget their troubles." - francesca lia block, necklace of kisses
our printer has been making the most horrific squeeking noises. it started gradually, but now it can be heard across LL1. on friday CH borrowed some oil for clippers from the hairdressers, but it didn't seem to make a difference. today he went to buy WD40 and i called tech support. it's not under warranty with Dell anymore, but it still is with the Fleurbot. so after going through all the diagnostics with the guy at dell, they said they'd send us a part. well, the next day what arrives but a whole new printer! with a new $150 toner already inside! i took it out and put in the old toner and ch helped me set it on top of the old paper tray... and it still squeeked! ch said, wait, is that the old toner... so we put in the new one, and silence. it was the toner all along! so now we have a back up printer. just in case. a good thing to have! this is ch and i using the desk chair as a dolly to wheel it to a hiding place.
