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.
