The Laptop from HELL

And here is the culprit...

This little nugget of technological SHIT has been the bane of my existence for the last 2 years...

Before the laptop, I had a Dell desktop that was lovingly referred to as The Beast.  Beast took much abuse over my college career and lasted another year after...sure, she was slow and obviously took a few beatings...but she was Beast. 
Once hubs (at that time just my "friend" and possibly more) and I started talking a little more seriously, he deployed (of course) so it seemed like the appropriate time to put Beast to rest and invest in something shiny and new.
After much investigation, and several trips to Best Buy with my dad around my finger on my arm, I settled on the little beauty above.  It worked GREAT for about a year, soon as I moved to this cursed state Utah it took a crap.  I have been through 3 harddrives in a year, 1 cd drive, and a keyboard. 
It's currently at the computer doctor and I'm awaiting news on it's health...hopefully I will just be getting a new one now that this one is technically considered a "lemon"...i.e. a giant piece of technological SHIT.

In OTHER news... I'M GOING HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME in less than a week!!!  I bought my return flight today, talked with my dad about final plans, and in less than 1 week, HELLO ILLINOIS.  Hello frigid cold, way too much snow, nothing but BORING as far as the eye can see...and these lovely faces...

Brudder, future sister, the one who bore me from her loins, big poppa, other brudder.

Ivy Jean :)
 Definitely worth long layovers and freezing temps...I'd travel to the end of the world for them.  :)

Happy Hump Day!
