I am still without a power cord for my laptop and it's starting to make me a wee bit crazy, as I now realise that there are files on my laptop that I could really use right about now. I thought I had an hour of battery time left on it when I shut it down about a week and a half ago, but it won't turn on, so I am assuming the battery has drained?
Yes, I tried removing and replacing it, but no go. I just hope that this is not a sign of something more serious, like a delayed response to the little power cord fire I had. We shall see, I guess.
My Future Shop boyfriend is kinda letting me down. When I phoned him today, he told me that Toshiba had given him a delivery date of 10 days from now, and it's already been two weeks. This is not what I wanted to hear, Future Shop boyfriend!
So what have I been doing to keep myself from missing your adorable faces while I am forced to share a computer with someone who does not hesitate to play the I need it to do my homework card? I have been rediscovering Sudoku, of course. In fact, I am rapidly becoming the Sudoku champ around these parts.
I am also particularly proud that we are three for three in my pledge to bring a load of stuff to Goodwill every week.
And the Polish or Romanian or something woman who works there is just so adorable! She always pitches in to help bring stuff from the urban assault vehicle, and she is totally cute and bubbly and friendly.
Plus she is a really good liar. Today I brought in a big honking butt-ugly hanging Tiffany lamp on one of those ugly chains, and she told me "it is very beautiful, but I am afraid we cannot accept chandeliers, as they need special wiring". And when I pointed out that no, you actually just plugged this into the wall plug, she thanked me for explaining it to her.
I just want to adopt her. It is very beautiful, indeed.
