OK, I swear I was working on the next chapter of Nemu's Trials when my beat up old laptop died on me.  Instead of just taking it to a random repair shop, I figured I'd try Best Buy's Geek Squad. I dropped it off April 29th and it's still not fixed.  I called yesterday and they said it was because I had not approved the repairs.  The week before, I called the 1-800 number when I got the e-mail and did just that.  Seems like communications are a little spotty for them.  The web site they referred me to still shows they have not worked on it.

I could buy a new laptop.  if Windows 9 is any good, I might just buy it.  However, all of my stuff in in Microsoft Office.  I really don't feel like buying the software and the old disks are lost somewhere.  I'm not sure if Open Office can open those documents.  So between that and the Windows 7 operating system, it's worth my while to get my old machine repaired.  If they ever get around to it.

I failed my last class and have given up on getting my Masters in Human Resource Management.  Why was I trying for that degree?  To keep my job.  Did I keep my job?  No, so why am I still studying for the degree?  I'm going to put school on the shelf until it looks like I'll need a degree.

After hundreds of job applications, a handful on interviews and many days of driving with no result, I finally caved and went to North Dakota to look for work. I should be starting as a postal worker in about two weeks.  I'm not celebrating until I actually get a check.  Too many things have gone wrong for me this year to start feeling comfortable now.  As it is, I have two weeks to get all my stuff moved and get settled in. 

I don't know what the next few weeks will be like.  I wonder if the Best Buy folks can have my laptop sent to a new store in my new town?  Can I trust they will do that if they say they can?  I have been very unimpressed so far.  Since I'm stuck with this cheap Win 8 machine with no Microsoft Office, I think I will work on the Unohana short story since I had no real notes and I can start working from scratch.  I'll be writing it on Wordpad I suppose. 


I want my laptop back.

Middle aged office worker who writes as a hobby. I love Bleach and other animes, I love to read and I like to travel when I have the chance, but I am very shy around people and try to fade into the background whenever possible.

Why are you called pehpig? - In 1996, I worked with a UNIX based database called PC-III (personal concept III) Every six months, you were required to change your password. If you couldn't think of a good password, it could suggest one for you. The suggestions the program would kick out were so whimsical and funny, I began to write them down. Pehpig was my favorite.
