Velma came back today. Yay, I'm excited, right? I think...all I gotta do is reload my recovery CDs and I'll get back all my stuff, right?


I lost all my programs, photoshop, my video editing program, the DVD ripper I bought online.

Now I have to reinstall everything, and I think they replaced my screen and everything, because the scratches that were there before aren't now. I don't have 75% of the programs that were on the computer.

After I get off work I have to go to Best Buy again and have them install Nortons and probably end up having to come pick it up tomorrow.

Ugh, all because my dog got excited to see me and jumped on the keyboard.

I sent my computer in last week to be prepared. I made all the proper arrangements, showing them my receipt, taking it in when it was still under warranty, all that good stuff.

But it wasn't enough.

I got a call on monday by Best Buy asking me to confirm a bill for $151 to pay for repair to what they call "customer abuse" to the computer.

Yes, I wanted my dog to jump on my computer. I wanted to send it in. I want to fight with my dad over using his computer. I want to have my hard drive with all my stuff erased when they repair it.

So I called the repair center and they said that repair of parts wasn't under the manufacturer's warranty.

Natrually, I'm a little...upset.

You are elegant, withdrawn, and brilliant.
Your mind is a weapon, able to solve any puzzle.
You are also great at poking holes in arguments and common beliefs.

For you, comfort and calm are very important.
You tend to thrive on your own and shrug off most affection.
You prefer to protect your emotions and stay strong.

Yesterday my sister and I went out for a sister day because she wanted to spend time with me before I left. We went to see my friend who I haven't seen in five years (or longer) who just had a baby, then we went to Olive Garden and then the mall. We watched Bewitched. It was good. Not great, but good.

Last week me and the buds saw Batman Begins (!!!) and before that, the week before, we saw Mr. and Mrs. Smith (!!!). Anyway.

So...My sister is taking me home and there's all these cars there. It's a surprise birthday party. Cause my birthday's the 16th of July and I won't be here so they celebrated it early.

Almost all of my family was there with the exception of my aunt and uncle and my other aunt. There were cake and more cake and pizza and cheese and lil smokies and chips. It was good. And then Danae and Kelly showed up! (*waves*) Then I opened presents...and got a brand new laptop!

It's a gateway. It's got 60GB, 512MB RAM and all these goodies. I heart it. I named it Velma. (After scooby doo). My dad brought it for me. It was all his idea. It was neat. I thanked him like 4700 times.

Today, my mom and I went shopping for clothes for London and stuff. Of course, we had to get back because my dad can't stand to have my mom away from him for longer than couple of hours. Then it was family time at my sister's house and after that...more family time at my house.

All in all, good time spent. Except for the mini family problemfest but it was smoothed over for now.

Two weeks.

I should be happy. And I was. Part of me is still. There's unfinished business here.
