an unhealthy obsession

I am a bit of a basket case this weekend after spilling a drink on my laptop. I'm heading over to Apple now, holding on to the small glint of hope that only the keyboard was destroyed and can be replaced.

Today. Now. Immediately.

I told my friend Matt yesterday that having my laptop be inoperable was like having my child ripped from my hands, which reveals three things:

1. I don't have children,
2. I have an unhealthy obsession with my laptop, and
3. I'm a tad dramatic.

But there's no doubt about it. I am miserable -- to the point of giving myself a stomachache and losing sleep -- on a weekend when I was meant to recover from too many hours at work and not enough at home.

Wish me luck.

Which Apple store did you go to? The Clarendon one does indeed have cute (and smart and efficient) Apple boys.

I went to the Pentagon City store. The Clarendon store didn't have any appointments yesterday.

Smart, cute, efficient -- and hot.
