New computer's coming! New computer's coming!

I am about to die here.

Seriously. It's miserable. I had absolutely no idea how reliant I am on the computer until I don't have one. Even though Jason frequently refers to me as being "glued to the computer" and makes references to my withdrawals and whatnot.

Good thing I hardly ever listen to him anyway.

I have a tracking number. It is at the DHL close to me...and I can't go get it.

I called and asked, very, very nicely if they would just hold the shipment so I could come pick it up and they said no. The very nice lady said they have to ATTEMPT delivery first, even though I won't be home and I promised her I wouldn't be home and if they would just hold it there I would come and sign for it and show my drivers license and even bake her some delicious oatmeal raisin cookies and she still said no.

I should have offered chocolate chip. I don't think things through.

Anyway. Hopefully TOMORROW I'll have my new computer at home and I'll be back to posting useless crap in no time.

I know you all are just holding your breath for it.

Woo!! My new computer? Left the UPS Dist. Center at 5:52 this morning. The DC? 15 minutes from my house. It's 2pm now. Where the hell is my computer?!

We're easy to please, aren't we?

Been there done that. I feel you pain about the novel. Of course I only lost three chapters, but it was the best three yet, and I have still not recovered.

You and Kellie should have gotten together and gotten a group discount.

Way to help out the economy gals! :)

Yes. You certainly should've offered chocolate chip.

Angie said...

I had forgotten about the computer (silly me) and kept checking over the weekend. Again, silly me!!!

Haven't you seen Erin Brokovich?

You offer sexual favors, not oatmeal cookies! Duh...

Sean said...

this is the biggest problem with internet shopping... no instant gratification.

J said...

Yes please come back Chick! I am holding my breath waiting for you!

EE said...

Yeah, I wouldn't have done it for oatmeal cookies, either...
always offer chocolate first;)

Oatmeal raisins? Come On, now! That just sounds way too healthy.

Even better than chocolate chip cookies? GIRL SCOUT COOKIES! That offer would have convinced her to personally deliver and set up your computer before you got home from work!

Chocolate chip might have worked but I would have gone for the oatmeal! I don't get why they have to attempt delivery first when you tell them you won't be there?

Gah! DHL let ME come pick up something once, instead of waiting for it to be delivered! I had to take two forms of I.D. along.

Mebbe they changed their policy.

Oh well - at least you're getting it soon!

Cripes, waiting on stuff totally sucks!

You can't offer healthy shit to people in Tennessee!! Gah! Fried pickles or twinkies might have done it.
