So, remember this post?
Well, I FINALLY GOT THE LAPTOP
Something happened in between, though that only added to the frustration. I did get “a” laptop last week or the week before but it wasn’t quite the one I had put on hold. Same specs but with a DVD player. Now, I don’t care for a DVD player but I was willing to live with that. I told B I didn’t want to do the set up cause my last laptop ended up being in French.
So, he sets to do that and five minutes later he says to me, I have bad news. I didn’t even have to ask. I just say very matter-of-factly, it’s in French. Yes, he said.
N said -oh, he’s just pulling your leg. I’m not even kidding, B replied. The damn thing was in French. Again. So B took it back to the store. They said they would replace it, no problem. Only that there wasn’t a single laptop of that kind left in Ottawa (apparently it is a very popular model and it’s selling like crazy) so they had to order it.
That was last week and today was the expected date of arrival.
I decided I was going to pretend they had said Wednesday instead of Monday so I wouldn’t start checking the clock every ten minutes. However, by early afternoon I was getting a bit impatient and I tweeted this:
Hey, universe, don’t you think I deserve a break? just give me my damn laptop, would ya?
Wouldn’t ya know… less than ten minutes later I heard B on the phone so I ran out of my bedroom and almost collided with him cause he was on his way to my room, his face beaming, to give me the good news! The laptop was in!
So after I spent a good 5 minutes jumping up and down, which caused N to come and see what the hell was going on [big mistake cause I made her jump up and down with me] I tweeted:
WOW, apparently the universe was listening. Cool!
B and I went to the store, picked up the laptop, opened it right there and did the set up to make sure this time around everything was going to be fine. And guess what? Everything WAS fine
Now you’ll have to forgive me but I’ll leave you with a bit of my LOLCATS poetry (Hey, at least it’s not Vogon Poetry!)

You look so happy cuddling with your new laptop. Congratulations to the happy couple!
Thank you! We are very happy together :)
Whoa. The Power! There are a few things I’d like you to tweet for me.
Fire away then.
You cuddle with your laptop. I have a friend who smells the boxes that new Macs come out of. For the record, I’ve never been weird about a laptop. People I know, on the other hand….
Congrats on finally getting the new laptop!
I do. I kiss it too!
You keep spelling laptop wrong. :P
Congratulations on your new arrival! He’s beautiful and looks just like you!
