Update on my tech problems

So, my laptop is setting off on an adventure.

Friday i took my laptop back to the store in which it was purchased. Turns out, i have a 3 year contract for parts and labor. So, i shouldn’t have to pay a penny. But, I’m not  holding my breathe on that part.

We have a guy. At the store. We always go to him for our purchases.  If there is a deal, he will make sure we get it.  He gets to list us on the sales transaction to help reach his commissions quota. It works out. So, i felt a little chastised when  he was flipping my laptop back and forth giving it the once over.  I remember when he SOLD it to me and here we are, little over a year later, and he’s checking to see the quality of the product. If i have taken good care of it.

I should of cleaned it before i brought it in.

Now, on my receipt I have to look at the comments of ” smudges and dust on screen”.

So, stroke of luck, their warehouse company is already scheduled to make a pick up Monday. My laptop will thus be sent off Monday on a journey to geek headquarters, I mean their software warehouse.   Once they fix the laptop they will send it back to my local store. Meanwhile, I’m supposed to receive text messages updates.

All i can think is my baby is off on an adventure.  I feel guilty for being so attached to an object. But, you know what it is.. it’s the first nice thing that was mine and mines alone. I never owned my own desktop. It was either a shared computer in my parents house or a shared computer with the hubby. The hubby got his laptop before mine so he relinquished rights to the PC to me. But, it’s all full of HIS stuff.  So when my dad said he wanted to buy me a laptop i was giddy. I remember the first time i used it.. i didn’t even care to log onto to facebook. You know what i did? I put the pinkest , girliest background ever. Just because I didn’t have to be considerate to someone else.  Cause, i’m not even THAT girlie. But, just cause i COULD…. i did.

Naturally, i inquired how long i would be separated from my baby. The guy told me 10 days or so. I was thinking upwards along a month, so I’ll take 10 days…but like i said before.. i’m not holding my breath or anything.

For now, I learned I’m a weak, sad soul. I could not survive without checking my blog and keeping up to date with all the blogs I follow  I dont use facebook that much anymore. It was mostly the attachment to this blog.  So, i dusted off the ol PC…ungated the corner… and put a chair in front of the desk. Now, I’m hunched over cause there isn’t room in this corner to properly position the chair. It’s badly lit in this corner.  And a tad bit dusty since I havent been doing the through dusting to this corner since it’s been gated off…just that half fast dusting. So, this sad soul is over here buckled over in a dark corner , nose twitching, to get her wordpress fix. I think I have a problem.

    LOL, very cute and funny post. You don’t have a problem! I remember when I was living in Spain and we lost all our English TV channels for about a week. It was a bad time, is all I’ll say. I do not have fond memories of that week, and I don’t think the TV company people do either – many angry phone calls from yours truly. I really like all my gadgets and techno stuff. I have a pink Filofax which sits on my desk. I secretly like the colour pink! I even thought of having another blog under a pseudonym, covered in flowers and frills with lots of pink … but alas, not enough time to let the little girl inside come out and play. I shall have to make do with squealing every time I see a Chihuahua.

    I dress up my little doggie boy too. I knit jumpers for him – well I used to when I still had time! But thankfully he already has enough of them to last for a while. But he loves “getting dressed”. It makes him feel special; you can see it in his eyes. He spent the first 7 years of his life in Spain with summers of around 35 degrees Celsius, and then we moved to England. So he really feels the cold here more than the other dogs do. Your doggie is so pretty and she’s a girl, so that must be fun getting to dress her up. I have to keep Rollie in boyish colours. Well I don’t *have to* but I’d feel guilty if I dressed him in pink! 🙂
