This morning I checked that the 10mbit broadband line had been activated, and eager to get everything over and done with I was going to register at the ISPs portal which gives superfast access to movies, storage areas, etc. within the ISPs user group. What happened next still makes me want to cry.
When I was going to plug in the power adapter a spark flew from the electrical wall socket to the adapter. Shit, I thought. And I was right. The laptop simply wouldn’t turn on, even with different adapters, with or without the battery and in different locations. I suspect the motherboard was fried from the outdated electrical outlet, which I complained about when I moved in here. And now, ladies and gentlemen, the beautiful duet Sean Connery and Wesley Snipes are here to perform their little three-liner from the movie Rising Sun (1993):
Connery: I am very, very OKOTTA!
Snipes: -Pissed Off!
Connery: Yes! Pissed Off!
..Thanks, guys. So at the moment I’m writing a very formal and very legally documented letter to my much beloved landlord to hear what he wants to do about it. I loved that little laptop, and after all the configurations we’d been through I felt that we were really connected. She was a noisy one, that’s true, but all girls are.
Thank God I know how to save my harddrive containing all my.. all my work.
