More computer complaining, but this is probably the last one for now, and here's why. After two weeks of "expedited" diagnostics, they finally figured out that the problem ISN'T the fan or the jack or the software or all the other stuff they messed around with.
No, the motherboard is fried.
Which means no way for me to have my computer in time for departure. WHICH MEANS I have to get a new laptop for the trip. AAAAAaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuggggggggggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!
It's just another crappy thing to deal with, though. We should've known that these things would happen during the days before I leave the country. I've already found a fairly cheap laptop that looks like it'll hold up for three months, so we're going in tomorrow to see if we can get it. And thankfully I already have nearly all the supplies that I need, so this is one of the last things to worry about.

I also feel great excitement about the inauguration and all the new Watchmen things, and yet it still feels kind of fuzzy under the looming of Friday.

Still exciting though. Mmmm.
metatronis: (Be safe)
I still don't have my computer back, and apparently it won't be ready until next week, just a few days before I leave. So that sucks. But Bean and Paul bought me a video camera, and hopefully I'll be able to do a video blog of some sort while I'm there.

Everything is going really fast now. I've been keeping a list of things to do/gather in anticipation, and I'm slowly getting through it.

Hope everyone had a ballin' holiday!
I meant to post and do a music dump a week ago but my laptop ac adapter sploded on me, so I was without a laptop for a while. It's all gravy now.
I got some nice stuff, a crapload of gift cards and I'm now freaking out about my wisdom teeth and preparing for the trip.
Speaking of which, I'm leaving the country in less that a month!! Holy crap.

In summary, merry holidays and I'll do the music post this weekend. Whoop.

I've had the loaner laptop for a week, and it's very nice but I want my baby again. Poops.

I'll wait to post pictures until I have it back, cause I don't want to clutter this computer up more than I have, even though I'm gonna delete it all eventually.

I got a new phone! It's really new and shiny (literally) and I love it cause it has transferable memory and I can make my own ringtones. Biiitchin'.

Also, my brother is a freak and I love him. I think I did a good job influencing him at such a young age.

I don't know.

Actually, I do. And perhaps that is the most terrifying thing of all.

Laptop's in the hospital. D:
The cooling fan done broked, and in order to get it fixed under the warranty they have to do a full diagnostic test first. And JUST when I get my new webcam.
Mmmmmmmwell, if they keep it any longer I'll get a loaner.
I was freaking out when I had to check it in, though. I felt like I was signing away my baby.

Exciting news[!]: I got a tattoo last week, and I fell asleep in front of the California State Supreme Court. More on these adventures in the near future.
