Just wanted to update in the middle of my hecticness. I tried to get a new computer this weekend and to put it briefly I dealt with the biggest jerk, spent too many hours and days in best buy, had to exchange what I bought and am waiting for the new one to get in stock on Friday. The computer I’m using is dying, it’s insanely picky about how the power cord is plugged in so that’s the reason for my blog neglect. I’m still checking stores and emails but I won’t be in front of the computer as much as normal these next couple days because I just can’t deal with the beeing and pop ups telling my that my battery is going to die and trying to wiggle and balance the power cord just right so it connects.
p.s. a vent about the jerk: he was like the dumb cop in sci-fi movies who won’t listen that there is a problem and made me feel like the issues were all in my head…luckily the computer died right in front of his supervisor. The jerk guy was so condesending and rude he kept on saying it’s functioning correctly but for a fee he could send someone to my house (but refused to tell me what they’d try to do). I started crying knowing I’d ever have to be out hundreds of dollars of re-stocking and set up cost or take home a faulty computer, the guy said “I understand technology can be confusing” oh I wanted to kick him in the face so bad.

oh no don’t say that…it is a toshiba laptop which I’ve had good luck with until now ahhh
I can tell you HORROR stories of toshiba laptops!
RUN! Run! RUN!
There is a repair shop in Provo that we used to take ours too (luckily it had a 3 year warranty and full service coverage–or else we would have been in a WORLD of hurt)
Anyway, if you want to call them to ask for info or for a referral for a place in SLC to fix it let me know.

I wish you would have kicked him! I wasn’t even there and I want to kick him…or drop-kick him. :) Hope all this ‘confusing technology’ works out for you! :)
