Great is my suckitude: I may have killed my laptop :(((((  
Posted from my iPhone:

I reached over to grab a fork and tipped over my glass of orange spritzer (OJ + seltzer). Right towards my laptop, which was on the table next to me. (It was a late, lowkey dinner -- just my husband and me; Meghan was already asleep for the night). Not a whole lot of it got on the laptop, but when I tried to use it 10 minutes or so later, it was dead. Now it's plugged in and the "sleep" light is flickering like crazy, as are the Caps Lock and Num Lock lights (and the fan keeps fading in and out). Not good! I can't get it to turn on -- all I get is the flickering lights. I'm hoping it'll improve as any little bits of OJ (which was the pulpy kind) dries; the flickering lights are better than no lights, which was what initially happened. But I have a bad feeling about this.... :(((((((((

The only silver lining is that I had backed up the computer a few weeks ago, when some sort of cache problem with Firefox had started making my OS go crazygonuts. The Genius Bar dude at the Apple Store fixed the problem (it took over 2 hours to get everything fixed up!), but I am now REALLY glad I had backed up, because this might just be the end. The other good thing is that I've wanted a MacBook Air for a while now (I currently have a 4-year-old PowerBook G4), so a new computer would be nice. But these are not the circumstances I wanted to buy one under.

:( *crosses fingers and waits*

Well, this'll make me to to bed early tonight. That's a good thing, I guess. I hate typing on the iPhone.

Aiya! Luckily, my computer has lived to tell the tale (although it looked for a while as if it wasn't going to). There's no way replacing a motherboard would have been worth it. Siri-hubby says that would have been $800 -- may as well buy a new computer at that rate.
