Big boobies and a pretty face will get you far, or all's well that ends well  
Score, yo! So, the independent retailer thinks I'm one hot chick, and as a result, I got two chargers for $50! Woo-hoo! I swear, I didn't do anything, wasn't manipulative, etc. He just has a big thing for me (he even compared me to Jessica Rabbit, and no I'm not kidding!) and decided that he'd trade my two broken chargers (the one I broke back in April and the one I broke today) for two good ones and $50. Fuckin' sweet! Dude, seriously? I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way. ;) Heh, really, he kept saying over and over about how beautiful I am, and my husband's lucky, and blah blah blah. Frankly, it was pretty inappropriate, but I don't really care that much. I've been on the receiving end of far more than that, and it is kind of flattering in a way. (OMG I'M SUCH A H0R! TAKE THAT, GINNY WEASLEY!) And he was a pretty nice guy overall, so it was no big deal.

So now I can fuck up and break another charger and still be good to go with my backup charger. If Gmail weren't down right now, and if I didn't have a final exam tomorrow that I have no clue what I'm doing on, and if I didn't have a thesis proposal to write for Monday, and if I didn't have undergrad finals to grade for Monday, life would be fuckin' awesome.

The weather's finally decent, too. Actually, it's gorgeous. And we Bostonians deserve it, because the whole earlier part of the week was utter shite.

Oh, and the retailer guy gave me a tip: Don't buy the new series of Mac laptops (I forget what they're called--Powersomethingoranothers) until the fall, when the second series (he kept calling it "revision") comes out, because the first revision is always full of problems, and those computers require a lot of fixing up. So if anyone's thinking of buying an Apple laptop, wait until the fall.

He just has a big thing for me (he even compared me to Jessica Rabbit, and no I'm not kidding!) - jessica rabbit!!! you dont look like a cartoon to Me, nor do you have weasley hair to My knowledge!!

And he was a pretty nice guy overall, so it was no big deal. *sniggers* arsekissing is what I call it and I have a DEGREE in receiving that and usually get it on a daily basis!! >:-)

I know you have good weather there as We did here too although by the time I went out, it wasnt 25 degrees luckily..

Oh, it's all in the boobs, my friend. All in the boobs. He even had this Jessica Rabbit icon on this other guy's computer that he pointed to, and it was very boobalicious...as am I. ;) But hey, that kind of stuff is better than "OMG you've got big boobs!" from some random dude on the street. It's like, "O RLY? NO WAI! I hadn't noticed! Tell me more about glaringly obvious things about my own body, why dontcha?"

arsekissing is what I call it

More like shameless flirting (not from my end, but from his). Although I have been known to shamelessly flirt from time to time... ;)

Dude...you better learn Farenheit before you come here! :P

No friggin fair. I have the same problems you do (though my power chords just suddenly stop charging and short my damn power supply). That and my warranty just went up two months ago so now getting it fixed would be pointless. And I wanted this damn thing to last me all four years at the uni, too. *pouts* I even have a good rack, dammit! ;)
Miss Sophia: Hermione says boys are so stupidmiss_sophia on May 4th, 2006 09:36 pm (UTC)
The computer always develops humongous problems just after you let the warranty run out. That's what happened to me, pretty much. I think my warranty ran out towards the end of 2005, and I was too much of a cheapskate to renew it. Yeah, that'll teach me.

Don't underestimate the power of your rack! It may come in handy sometime in the future!

There is nothing wrong with a little flirting...esp if it gets you a sweet deal!!

GO STUDY!!

It's fucking cold there (for me!) It was 90F here in Orlando today! Our nighttime low isn't even 70F. God help me!!

All right...I'm physched up now!! Can's wait to get to the airport!!
Miss Sophia: Brokeback Mountain kissmiss_sophia on May 4th, 2006 10:10 pm (UTC)
Well...I try not to manipulate people like that, just 'cause it's not fair to them. But I also wouldn't be a bitch or anything like that. I was just my nice, usual self. :)

Hello new LJ friend! ^_^

Good luck studying for your final tomorrow! I'm confident you will do excellently on it.

I'm also pleased that the weather has been improving lately here in Iowa; a few days ago it was raining constantly and now it is quite comfortable!

It's satisfying that you received such an irresistable offer even if it was due to lust. ^_^
Miss Sophia: Draco - Teh Apathymiss_sophia on May 4th, 2006 11:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you muchly! Yeah, it pretty much rained here the whole past week, grey skies, temperature in the low 50s (WTF, Boston?!). Yay for sunshine!

Hahaha, I'm confident I will not do so excellently on the exam. The class itself SUCKED, which means that I barely did any work for it, and that's likely to reflect on my final. Ah well, it won't be THAT bad.

And clearly I'm not studying very hard for it right now.

As for everything else, hey, if you have to bra up boobs, you may as well use them to your advantage. Yay for you!

Glad things turned out well. God, the weather was great today, wasn't it? I climbed a tree. :-D

Monday wasn't so bad, but I'm just glad all that rain is finally done.

You climbed a tree? That's made of all varieties of awesome.

Klutzy me, I would've fallen out of the tree!

Good to hear things worked out. My sister had a similar problem with her laptop's power cord, but I think in her case it had something to do with her cat pushing the laptop off of a table.

Computer tech guys are such suckers for flirting gals. I haven't had anything quite so blatant happen to me, but I think there's a few times I've gotten things just for being female and, erm, friendly. The blond hair probably doesn't hurt either. ;-)

I don't know much about Macs, but his tip about the new laptop series is a good one for new technology in general, I've found. It's almost always best to wait until version 2.

Good luck with your classes! You realize the weather's only nice because you have to study, right? At least that's what always seemed to happen to me when I was in school.
Miss Sophia: Chicks before dicksmiss_sophia on May 5th, 2006 06:46 pm (UTC)
Man, what do cats have against computers these days?

Totally unrelated, but my cat made a bed out of one of our old laptop cases. It was so cute to see her go there time after time to curl up and fall asleep. Of course, we never put a laptop in there again, since there was a layer of hair like an inch thick in it. But it was sweet as hell.

It's sort of hard to know what to do with guys who are all flirty like that. I mean, I definitely didn't lead him on or anything, but I wasn't going to be a bitch either or be like, "OMG, stop harrassing me!" He was a decent enough guy. And I've had far more inappropriate things happen (actually, with a computer teacher!)--and again, they didn't really phase me so much. Maybe I'm a bad women's libber. :P
