Oh sweet internet, how I love thee

I haven't been online much this week because my stupid computer cord died (again) and won't be here for 3-5 days. As much as I love my computer I will never buy another Dell because of the shoddy cord design. My cord has been replaced several times over the past few years and the hassle of replacing it is starting to piss me off.

We ordered the cord from Dell on Sunday and DHL was supposed to deliver it today. Only they didn't. Somebody somewhere screwed something up and I have to go pick it up tomorrow from the shipping center.

The cord died last Saturday and I was doing just fine until last night when I just couldn't take it any longer. Somebody please explain to me how I was supposed to watch any more tv without my laptop handy to play cards with online?*

I know now that David really loves me. He has basically forfeited the right to his laptop in order that I might gain access to my internet crack. I have played so much Yahoo! Gin today that I think my brain might explode. But if it explodes, and at least it'll be a happy explosion.

I would just like to point out that I am on spring break this week and I did not have to work Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Considering the fact that the cord died on Saturday, I think going almost five whole days with almost no internet is quite long enough, thank you, which is why I have commandeered David's lappy.

When I get my new cord tomorrow I am looking most forward to catching up with all of the blogs I read every day. I imagine that it'll be like sugar shock and I might need to be resuscitated. I also imagine that I'll be able to sleep peacefully at night again because if I get anxious I can just glance over at the table where my laptop and new cord are sitting to see that they are still there, waiting to amuse me again in the morning.

*Many thanks to Becky for loaning me her phone Saturday night so I could play Solitaire while we watched The Brothers Grimm.
