My laptop died.

I tried to start it up on Wednesday night and nothing. Well, something, a little light, which I suspected was worse then nothing. (This was what happened last time my laptop died.)
So, off to the Apple Store genius bar on Thursday after work where the very nice guy confirmed that yes, it's the logic board. The fucking logic board, that costs a thousand dollars to replace.
i. am. so. screwed.

So, I walked out of the Apple store, barely keeping it together. My laptop is very very important to me. As a student/photographer/internet addict/ravelry addict/designer/technophile I use it all the time. And now I can't. I'm broke, I'm working at an unpaying job the majority of the time, and I can't afford a new laptop (or the part, but let's face it, a new one is a better deal) until September when my student loan money comes through.
So anyways, Cheryl and I walk to Pickle Barrel, where she treated me to dinner, in a quiet booth, where I started crying. The waiter came and took our order, pretending he didn't notice I was just crying, and then later, i realized that we were eating at almost the same time that news broke that Michael Jackson died. The waiter probably thought I was just a REALLY big Michael Jackson fan; crying over dinner at the news!

So yeah. No computer till Sept. It's going to be an even longer summer now!
I'm currently on Dave's, but he's very possessive of it, and I can't use it for long. Cheryl is going to lend me her 8 year old G4, but i don't know how well it'll work. We'll see.

boo. I suck.

365, books, and such.

Not much going on here. I'm feeling sick, and should really go to the doc tomorrow, but I feel guilty calling in sick to my UNPAID job. WTF? 

In other news, I've started Project 365 - in which I take a self portrait every day for a year. I'm on day 6. We'll see how this goes, but I think it would be cool, especially when I'm all the way in Rochester and everyone I love is here in TO. 
Check out my 365 pics on my Flickr page - you can just click through from any photo.

365-6 dinner
Today I finished the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.  it was a good book. I was smiling on the streetcar on my way home tonight reading the ending. This seems to be a theme with me: making an ass out of myself on public transit whilst reading. 
Anyways, I do recommend it. it's a great book that really gives a sense of the time (post WWII, UK) 
Also, please don't ask me about my knitting. it's not coming along so well. I realize I have deadlines, and I need to get going on them! 

Going to bed now. I'm feeling poopy, and tired. I'll see how I feel in the morning, maybe i'll go to the doctor after all.
