Hiya, Toots!

Computer - broken
Me - smad (Sad+ Mad = Thanks, Gilmore Girls!)

So my computer stopped working on Saturday. I took it into the Apple store at the mall - that place was INSANELY crowded. Luckily, I had an appointment and only had to wait 10 minutes. Fuckers. I did play with the iPhone to pass the time. Yummy. I can't wait until I graduate and buy myself one. Law school will have been totally worth it.

We ended up having dinner at the mall (because we are classy like that; also because I was smad and didn't want to cook). Our journey took us past a number of stores, and can I just say, Victoria's Secret - what. the. fuck? Seriously. It was whore central.

Now I am not a prude, and if you want to wear uncomfortable slutty underwear, by all means, jam that thong string up your ass. HOWEVER. Please refrain from dressing your mannequins like Slutty McWhorelady. I do NOT want to have to run interference across your store window because my child feels unbelievable uncomfortable when confronted with a mannequin wearing a thong-style teddy facing BUTT OUT.

I am not a mall person, that is for sure.


Reminiscing about my computer (it's been 2 days!), I remember those times when I've put my headphones on and haven't quite managed to listen to music through them. What ends up happening is:

1- I pull up iTunes, put on my headphones and then start doing something else before I select a song. For easily 10 minutes at a time.

2- I put on my headphones, think about pulling up iTunes, and then start doing something else. Sometimes the headphones are plugged in. Quite often, they are not. So I'm sitting there, unplugged headphones on, listening to NOTHING. Weirdo.

3 - I have, on more than one occasion, managed to plug my headphones into the wrong outlet. And then I wonder why the music sounds so far away.

I still miss my computer.


  1. OK. #2 is pretty funny.

    I do #3 all the time. Or forget to plug them in at all and then wonder why the music sounds all muffled.

  2. Sometimes? At work? I actually wear the ear thingies when my music's not on. It gives me an excuse not to interact and sometimes, it makes people pause to consider if they really need to talk to me before interrupting what I'm "listening" to. I'm a bad person.

    And I'm totally with you on the Victoria's Secret thing. I don't even have a kid and I'm embarrassed to walk by that store.

  3. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does this. I feel like all kinds of a fool when I realize what I've done.

    And using the headphones to avoid people? Genius!

    Yeah, Victoria's Secret is just mindbogglingly bad.


Every time you comment, I get a lady boner.
