Hrm. Excuse me. I’ve been doing that all afternoon. I got a call from a very nice young man at Apple who told me in a friendly Canadian accent that I am royally fucked. The Apple technicians opened up my computer and found standing water. The motherfucking motherboard is fried along with the hard drive, lcd screen, keyboard and everything else.

I believe that the toggle switch used to open the computer was unharmed, thank God.

I have to pay Apple $709.95 plus shipping and taxes to get my iBook back. My iBook that is less than one year old.

I can’t believe this. Tonight’s agenda involves lots of alcohol.

    Annika, my water bottle spilled in my bag.

    Steve, Apple Care, while costing $249 does not cover stupid shit you do to your shit yourself. Only thing like a lightbulb going out on the screen.

    Cuz, I can’t be trusted with flamethrowers.

    Pete, I thought it was a scuba laptop

    Your first clue that it wasnt, is the fact that it didn’t come with an air tank……. or did it??
