Quick log of the weekend...

Overall, it was a nice weekend, although stress is mounting.

Short list, since I need sleep:
-Got sick. Am still sick. Sore throat and the usual stuff that comes with the temperature changes outside. Am fighting it, rawr.
-Cosplayed as Shino from Naruto. Have pictures, will post later. The anime club did one big Naruto cosplay. Kinda boring, IMHO - I would have liked more variety.
-Jenny won the cosplay contest, despite not being dressed as any character other than "little red lolita". ::facepalm:: 20 votes to her, followed by 13 votes to some other characters...
-Built two parts of my shino costume in about an hour and a half, excluding the time it took to purchase stuff. Yay for cheapass felt.
-Kaito Kid costume is still missing: 1) white dinner jacket, 2) white magicians top hat, 3) white dinner gloves, 4) a solid red tie, 5) white dress shoes?
-Total time at JAC/Loomis: 9 hours. Damn.
-Raine followed me home. And then to Schnucks. And then there was listening to music. And she stayed the night.
-Soran bushi - yay haven't forgotten everything.
-Watched around 5-6 video lectures for my upcoming CS461 exam wednesday.

Oh, and Apple: you need to train your tier two support techs / Specialists better. We played Phone/E-mail tag for the entire week, and finally got in touch friday. He could have frigging e-mailed me! Or at least sent some sort of acknowledgment e-mail. And all he did was set up the request for a new macbook pro to replace mine, and then tell me that Customer support would get in touch with me in 48 hours.

I'm seriously hoping I'll be able to talk them into sending me a new macbook pro first, so I can transfer data directly, instead of backing things up, then restoring. I really don't want to deal with this crap during a week with three exams. :P But using the macbook pro with the flexible usb keyboard + wacom tablet mouse is annoying. And it means I can carry significantly less. Much hate at MacBook Pro right now.*

Also, I need recommendations for a laptop.. case? I dunno, I'm thinking of a padded pocket I could slip my macbook pro into, before sliding it into my messenger bag, so the amount of banging around is reduced...

(should make two other posts later, probably one about cosplaying or Raine, and the other about the macbook pro, listing my problems...)

*I'm going to pirate Leopard. :P I'm sorry, but Apple, you're not getting anymore of my money right now. You've cost me enough in terms of time and loss in productivity due to hardware issues.
