the only earth?

cure all

After class, I spent a few hours on the phone yelling at people associated with BestBuy. I sent my laptop in for service a few weeks ago and it came back today. It wasn't fixed. In fact, they didn't do anything to it because the sticker with the serial number was missing.

The way to recover the serial number is to connect it to the Compaq website. However, the computer doesn't turn on, so it's not getting anywher near the internet. Welcome to catch-22.

After fully exhausting my patience and their ignorance, I went to Rachel's for "game night." I almost didn't go after the phone annoyingness, but I'm glad I changed my mind.

We played Settlers of Catan again -- hooray for sheep trading. Nikki and I won, shocking everyone given my usual passive game playing strategy. Anyway, it was good to completely forget about my computer woes for a few hours.

the other last minute good news: no eight o' clock class tomorrow!

another thrilling wednesday

today was not really exciting, but that's to be expected for a wednesday. as noted, no early class so i slept a tiny bit longer than usual.

i talked to more people who couldn't help me with my computer problem. all this because a sticker fell off the bottom. it is so completely stupid. i just want to buy something new and sell off all the parts on eBay.

Instead of a works in progress at the CHRU, we had "let's watch the Peter Jennings report that everyone forgot to watch" day. so that was good. I was sorry to have missed it last week.

I went home and watched basketball. After that, I thought I'd work on my thesis, but I don't have the most recent copy in my dante space. At least it wasn't on my laptop.
