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.

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.

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
