I think my Facebook message to Tim a few minutes ago about sums it up:
“Made it here. Left phone at the house. DO NOT give me a hard time even as a joke, as I may just lose my shit altogether. Also dropped the iPod into the toilet. See previous comment. ”
Also, as those of you who follow me on Facebook/Twitter know, I had Bananas Foster, and I suspect the liqueur does not, in fact, entirely burn off. So I’m a little out of it. Incidentally, while watching the fellow caramelize the brown sugar and toss the bananas in the mix, my comment was, “This is like the best banana split ever.” And that was before eating it, so I can’t even blame alcohol. I’m just that cultured.
Mom is putting the iPod in a box of rice. It’s Minute rice because that’s all the Walgreens had so… We’ll see if it helps. If not, I guess we’ll try to find regular rice. And if that doesn’t work… lots of swearing.
Also, spent part of Tuesday trying not to panic. Turns out my computer’s screen went. Best Buy checked and found the year warranty had just ended. Called my boss (who made the purchase) all freaked out, and he found the receipt was actually from September 24th. Best Buy looked again, and apparently there were a couple of ASUS computers purchased around that time, hence the confusion. All this took three trips, by the way, since I don’t just randomly carry my boss’s phone number with me.
Point being, my PC is being sent off for service and may not be back til early October. Something I will stress out about more when I get home. For now, I’m using Tim’s PC.
I just had a nice dinner with Ashley and Greg from Wise Bread. With the aforementioned Bananas Foster. Now I’m going to turn on the TV and try to relax.
More news (hopefully happier) as it develops.
PS. Mom says hi.
