So I might have... um... dropped my laptop? Anyways, now the power cord is really loose, and it will only charge if I have it at JUST THE RIGHT ANGLE. I brought it to Best Buy to see what they could do about it. I thought my warranty had just expired, but it turns out I have 5 days left on it. WOOO! The bad news is that I have to say goodbye to my laptop for two weeks while it goes to the HP laptop pit hospital. And even though there's nothing wrong with it aside from a loose connection, they're going to run a full diagnostic and I run the risk of having my hard drive wiped. Mother. Fuckers.

So now I'm burning everything I don't want to risk saying goodbye to onto DVDs, and trying to decide whether or not I'm going use my whoverse_las skip this week, even though I've got my fic 2/3rds written (in a notebook, thank jebus) and I really don't want to use it this early on.

So basically, I'm going to be doing crazy shit like reading actual books for entertainment for the next two weeks. Weird. Let's see how I do with an ~unplugged life~ for a while.

I'm really going to freaking miss you guys. :(

I had this happen to my HP laptop too, actually. But after my warranty expired. They wanted like, $600 bucks to fix it. So I took my laptop to some back alley Russian mafia repair place and they did it for $200. And then it broke like, four months later so I said fuck it and replaced my laptop. GOOD TIMES.

I can't believe you're already nearly done your las fic! I haven't even started. I looked at the prompt and was like OH FUCK THIS NOISE. IDK, I hate picture prompts with a passion. And this one is just. . . fuckbutt. So specific. And it seems to only want humour fics and whine whine whiiiiine.

Uuuugh. I know! I wanted so badly to take my laptop to some OTHER PLACE where I wouldn't have to give it up forever. I have no moneys, though, so Best Buy is my only recourse. Because, yeah, store credit card.

Re: The Prompt. I Know Rite? But I had a flash of inspiration yesterday, after reading novels and mainlining Who Season 5 all day. But it still is the worst prompt ever, and I HATE that we have to use the exact wording on the goddamn button. What a pisser.

Agh, I missed the part where we have to include exact wording. What the fuck.

I think I would curl up a in a fetal ball if I had to go offline cold Turkey. Now I have a Droid, so even that prospect is unlikely. And boo you for being almost done. I mean, yay, you're almost done.

I'm not gonna lie: two weeks or (shudder) more without internet is a frightening prospect. I'm trying not to break into a cold sweat.
