It may be the screen itself or it may be something connected to the screen (I'm hoping for that), but in either case my laptop screen will not turn on for some reason. Mischa and Bennett are going to take a look at it to see if they can fix it; if it's the LCD, I'll have to eat the expense of buying a new one for one of them to install, but hopefully it's something less serious - I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I hardly know what to do with myself without my computer! I'm such an American.

My laptop arrived this morning! I am thrilled to have it and to be online with it!

I'm going to begin downloading WoW to it just as soon as I download Adium, a wonderful chat program to which Mischa introduced me when I was first experimenting with my mom's MacBook Pro. The WoW download will probably take between four and six hours, which I will spend knitting and folding laundry, then I'm uploading some of my CDs to the new lappy so I can transfer them to my iPod! I feel so hip and l33t. Carl even bought me fancy, new sunglasses to replace my long lost Ray Bans.

Now I just need to get around to doing my taxes from the last two years. Ew.

I'm so excited and so thankful! My parents have very generously bought me a 17" MacBook Pro, as well as the software I'll need for the classes I'm taking in autumn. Depending on what size grants I receive (if I receive any), I may be able to repay them at least some of the cost of the computer and software, but by allowing them to buy it for me I am able to have the materials I need for my classes before they begin, which is just one more worry off my mind. My mom is keeping the free printer that comes with it because I really need something nicer and because I do not need any printer immediately.

This weekend Carl and I are doing our taxes that are overdue from the last two years specifically so I can finish filling out my applications for financial aid.

Along with the computer, I also got an iPod, but Carl and I are paying for that ourselves. We just bought it with the computer because that way we will be able to receive a 150 dollar rebate on it just as soon as it gets here and we can mail in all the proper UPCs. Because I want to rip as many of my flood-damaged CDs to it as possible, I chose the iPod capable of storing up to 20,000 songs.

Oh La La )
