BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED.
Toshiba sent me back my "repaired" laptop, BUT IT'S STILL BROKEN. It's still doing the EXACT same thing I sent it in for. I am so exhausted and stressed from all this that I literally put a whole tray of broccoli in the oven the other night and waited half an hour only to realize the oven was off. That's how fried my brain is.
I am never ever ever ever ever EVER buying a Toshiba product again. Even if it's just a decorative mouse pad. Which I'm pretty sure they don't make. And does anyone even use mouse pads anymore? (Did anyone ever?) But that doesn't matter because none of that is the point! The point is I'm never buying Toshiba again!
Anyway, while I once again attempt to get Toshiba to actually REPAIR that one, I've decided to use my old, broken laptop. And by broken, I mean it works, but it's a little slow, I had to buy a wireless keyboard because the track pad doesn't work, and it makes this terrible, annoying noise coming from somewhere in the hardware that I don't know how to fix. But it's better than nothing, I suppose. Except, oddly enough, it actually runs The Sims 3 better, so now I keep wanting to play rather than be productive.
Anyway, that's the only news I have -_-
Pretty much just the usual. I did take a graphic novel for review, so that’s something a bit out of the norm (though it was a pain and a half trying to figure out how to open it on this Windows 7 computer).
Also, this week on Daniela Ark’s awesome blog there will be an interview of yours truly :-)
Oh! Almost forgot. Question about Edelweiss for anyone who uses it—once you request a book, does the request button go away? Because I requested a book but then everything got glitchy and it hasn’t showed up under my requests tab, so I don’t know if it went through :-/
Books I Received for Review:
Books I Finished:
Untaken was not exactly what I was in the mood for (#MoodReaderProblems), but it was still a touching, character-driven book. Artificial was pretty awesome and also kind of not what I expected? But in a good way. I’m getting really bad about this expectations thing lately, though luckily it’s been working in my favor. But aren’t both covers amazing?! Blood Stain ended up being only 90 pages of story with 40 pages of extras -_- but it was quirky and entertaining with nice artwork.
Song of the Week:
“All I Want” by Kodaline – I kind of just chose a song at random this week since I haven’t listened to much music lately, but I like this one, and it’s on my playlist for the book I’m… not really working on at the moment lol but will be again at some point.
