Just a running list of various SNAFUs that happen to coincide with Mercury Retrograde:
- Confusion at the local science fiction meetup I administrate – from who had the DVDs to when they’d get there, all stuff beyond anyone’s actual control (and that prompted me to send two texts to my husband: “I miss you,” followed by “I really fucking miss you.”)
- The plug on my laptop breaking, forcing us to replace it for the second time.
- Yesterday, my laptop screen breaking for no discernable reason – I bumped it, but nowhere near the screen.
- Being subjected to some of the most painfully awkward social attempts I’ve ever experienced, ever. And I used to work in retail.
I’m sure there’s more coming, but mostly I’m focused on the laptop right now. Given that I’ve already replaced the battery in lieu of getting a new laptop, only to have to replace the plug… I’m thinking I should just give up and get a new laptop, hopefully a smaller one than the one I’ve been toting around. Also, Mike doesn’t believe me when I say that the laptop burns me, so hopefully I can get my hands on a cooling pack or something so I get more out of it later.
Update: My trusty Droid’s alarm went off with the program I use for meditation. It however would not allow me to shut the alarm off, no button, nothing in settings, NADA. I finally had to pull the battery because it was also preventing the phone from shutting down.
