Writer's Block: I wanna be just like you

Was there ever a fictional character who you admired so much that you strived to be like him or her?
Yes. I strive to be like my fictional character Lyria Spellspinner. She is a proud woman of color who knows what she wants and knows how to get it. She is supremely unconcerned with the opinions of other people, but knows how to play the politics game well. She is also highly intelligent and clever, always at least half a dozen steps ahead of her enemies, but she doesn't let it get to her head. Lyria is also the most stubborn character I have ever come up with, and I love her for it.

We can rebuild her! ...maybe?

So Brooke tried slapping a new drive in my Dell, and all was going fine for a while, she even asked me for a name. Going with the fact it was Ahnai ("Holy") before, I chose another TPNN word and named it "Enah," meaning "My child."

But, then she said it was starting to hang on reboots. After that was an email saying "I'm beginning to lose hope. It's *possible* that it's a simple heat problem. More likely it's that heat or something has damaged something. In which case a new system from ENU or elewhere is going to be cheaper than trying to fix it."

At which point it occurred to me that while they were trying to find out what was wrong with the computer, the one guy said something about the processor in regards to rapid heating and cooling. I wasn't really listening at the time, because he'd already said he didn't know what was wrong, so I figured he was just guessing.

*Sigh* And I was looking forward to Ahnai's rebirth. Poopsticks!
