And the hits just keep on comin'.....

Got Jen's laptop back last night. They replaced, of all things, the hard drive for a problem where the machine wouldn't even go to BIOS. Told the guy at Best Buy that I'd probably be back within a week. Went back today because, once again, the machine wouldn't boot. Guy couldn't get the problem to reproduce, so he wouldn't accept it for repair. He was just followng their process, but sheesch! So I took the laptop home, and it happened right off the bat. Didn't turn off the computer and took it in. Since he saw what was going on, he accepted it. *duh* So now Jen will be out her laptop for yet another month. I'll be bugging Compaq for a proration of my warranty...

Also, the dishwasher broke. It's got no water going to it for whatever weird reason. So on top of the hole in my ceiling, and the wedding deposit, and the work done on my car, I've got another charge that I'll need to pay. The shit has pretty much hit the fan around here, as this month has about $2,500 unexpected expenses. Again, thank god for savings accounts and credit cards.

I so didn't want to cook dinner tonight (plus I have a headache), and Jen didn't either (also a headache), so we went to In-N-Out to splurge and get some comfort food. I'll be paying for that for a while, even though I had the Double-Double protein style.

And, since I'm such a lemming...
