I can haz laptop?

*points at screen*

No for reals! It's right here! It was delivered while I was in class even though it was signature required, the bums, I hate UPS a lot, but nobody stole it or anything and I cannot sustain the hate because LAPTOP.

It is all SHINY and they have replaced the case and cleaned out the keyboard and I have new hinges and a new battery and they fixed the screen problem and, and, shiny! Shiny. Also it is mine.

Only problem: I got home all "omg! laptop!" and then opened the box and then discovered that no, I could not have laptop. Because they'd shrinkwrapped the laptop and the power cord. For real. And I tried to use my scissors and I was thwarted; they wouldn't cut through the plastic tape around the plastic sheeting around the shrinkwrap. So I had to dig through everything looking for my sewing scissors. Me: "ooh, I haven't seen that yarn in a while... oh, hey, I should finish that sock... damn it, where the fuck are the scissors?" as my laptop sat LANGUISHING on the sofa, all shrinkwrapped and alone.

So that is my story! It is a good story. I like it as a story. It has a happy ending. With vids! I plan to watch many vids I have missed.
