My ac adapter for my laptop battery = BIG FAT FAIL
It literally just up and died yesterday after a short 9 month life. Thankfully, I have a sweet Dell warranty that covers big fat fails and they are sending a tech to my apartment tomorrow to replace the part and to make sure my poor little laptop is ok.
Wel my friends, today is going to be a looooong day. Both of the boys that I nanny are home with pink eye. We have an appointment with a doctor in an hour, but all day long I am going to be freaking out that I am going to end up with a swollen shut eye for our family vacation this weekend. I used to be the Queen of Crusty Eyes in college. Stupid Mrs. Bear would sleep with her contacts in, develop an ulcer from doing so, and end up having to wear her nerdy glasses for two weeks. Or I would contract pink eye from another student just by walking by him/her. I was a big sexy mess in the face almost every other month.
Best Story Ever Regarding My Eye Issues
I almost had a heart attack when I woke up the morning of my first day of spring break freshman year with a crusty red eye. I had been a lazy idiot and fell asleep wearing my contacts. When my mom picked me up at my dorm she practically threw up all over her steering wheel when she saw the grossness of my eye. She rushed me to my eye doctor with three hours to spare before we were to hop on a place to Fort Lauderdale for the week. The doctor’s prognosis for my funky eye: I had a small ulcer/bacterial infection and the only cure was an antibiotic ointment AND I WOULD NEED TO WEAR MY GLASSES FOR A WEEK. NOt only did I look like Mallory from the Babysitter’s Club when I had to wear my glasses, but the ointment made my eye look all greasy and gunky. Needless to say I got on the plane and bawled the entire way to Fort Lauderdale while my sister and T pointed and laughed at their nerdalicious neighbor.
NOW before you go judging me for being such a pansy, you must understand something very very important. A young strapping lad by the name of MR. BEAR was meeting me in Fort Lauderdale with his friends for spring break in two days. I had not seen him since the previous June when he stopped by CT to visit me on his way back from Boston and boy did I need to make a good impression! (If you do not know how we met you MUST read this post before going any further.) I was single and on the prowl to make Mr. Bear my boyfriend.
So, after one and a half days of antibiotics, and looking like a tool on the beach while wearing sunglasses over my super nerd specs, I popped my contact back in and prayed my dreamboat wouldn’t notice that one of my eyes was significantly smaller than other (it was more than obvious I was having eye issues). Thank the high heavens and fate gods that he did not… because my sister was looking pretty shexy and we all know that she was the one who called dibs on him on the cruise ship way back when we first met. By the end of our spring break he was *madly in love with me* and I had made plans to visit him in Tennessee the following month.
The rest is history. Now he loves me for me, even when I look like a poindexter Quazi Modo.
Correction: I was madly in love with him and still had some work to do on securing him as my boyfriend.
