To discuss my laptop working as effectively as Lehman Brothers

I'd apologize for not posting over the weekend/having something excellent up this morning, but it's not my fault.
It's my dog's fault.
Bailey, in his E-collar splendor, knocked a glass of tea over my laptop. While I'm optimistic for the long-term chances of my computer, in the short term, it thinks that every time I type "B," I actually want "VBNVH."
Oh, and the mouse doesn't work. Using only the tab key to navigate is like Christopher Columbus navigating the Atlantic to find the West Indies. I'll only end up mistakenly discovering the New World and having a lame holiday in my honor.

So, anyway, I'll try to get something up later today- some thoughts on all those premieres I finally got to watch, cooking for Capricorn, killing a geisha in cold blood-- at least some or all of these actually happened.

In the mean time, what's the worst thing that happened to you this weekend?

see my blog and picture. that pretty much sums up my weekend (...as a pirate wench at a ren faire).

just add to that the obnoxious men who think that it's completely acceptable to grope me.

if they were playing by the rules, i should have gotten at least 3 free dinners this weekend.

Horrific cramps. aka Women's Troubles. Happens for about 3 days every 4 weeks. Imagine somebody grabbing your nuts & squeezing really hard, but your nuts are inside your body & the one squeezing them is God, so you can't stop it or tell Him to eff off.

Sympathy for the laptop though, it is ridiculous how tied modern life is to the funcionality of one's computer!

I had horrible nightmares this weekend about people breaking into my house and then I had to go work all weekend, cuz the ho-bag employee called off Sat and didn't show Sun.

I love rather than asking people to tell happy stories of their weekends you're asking them about the worst parts. In true Monday fashion, I will oblige. It was actually a great weekend, despite the fact that Boyfriend quit his job. It was a necessary move, but very stressful, nonetheless!

I'm sorry about your computer! Are you hyperventilating? I would be.

Sucks about your computer. I would have probably freaked out a bit.

Worst thing that happened to me this weekend? My weekend wasn't that bad. Maybe waking up Sunday with a huge bruise on my left hipbone and not remembering what happened and how now it hurts like crazy.. What the heck did I do Saturday night?

My car was filthy. FILTHY. So I finally take it to the car wash and get the "executive" wash.

Less than 24 hours later, I am driving to work and there is a freak rain storm. It hasn't rained in over 3 months. Also, it was 95 degrees here yesterday. What the hell....

I freaking hate it when my computer doesn't work right. I've blogged about it a bit. My hard drive burned out--and I thought it was Vista. Now I have finally conquered some of Vista's quirks. Drop on by to SavvySingleChristian.blogspot.com and I will enlighten you. :)

I think you know the worst thing that happened to me this weekend. 9th inning, 2 outs, 1 on, down by 2. It's Sunday, and a man named Church comes to the plate. He drives it deep to center field, back, back, back...into the glove of the Marlins center fielder (yep, I don't even know who their center fielder is, which makes the defeat even worse).
