Last night was awful. Slept in the family room with mom and it was definitely no fun, but I’m glad I was there. Woke up too early, went to work, and came home to… (drumroll, please) an e-mail. And not just any e-mail but a “Let’s schedule an interview” e-mail – yes, Yes, YES! I jumped up and down and ran around and then realized that I have absolutely nothing to wear to an interview of this caliber.

After multiple hours at Nordstrom’s, I’m seriously disgusted with the fashion industry and what the world thinks that young business women my age should wear. I’m sorry, but I don’t think a pink, yellow and brown tweed jacket over a pink and brown camo-print silk shell is in any way “classic”. Ew ew ew. I did find an epic black wool pencil skirt, coupled with my Steve Madden peep-toe pumps and and an amazing cotton blouse from Talbot’s that is simply amazing. So excited – we’ll see how it works out! :)

I am happy happy happy. At the same time, seriously pissed off. How do I pull of this dichotomy, you ask? Talent, my friend, pure and simple.

Okay, down to business: apparently, as per usual, at the ripe old age of 2 years and 9 months, my Macbook’s harddrive has gone to the Server in the Sky. Bloody bastard. How did this happen? Who knows. It’s a mechanical error in the harddrive and apparently it’s rather common once a Macbook turns two (they do call them the ‘terrible twos’ for a reason, I suppose) Anyway, I found out only because I bought the OS X 10.6 upgrade (aka Snow Leopard) and it wouldn’t install. Took it to the Belle-Sq Mac Store (an extremely unpleasant experience) and was diagnosed as ‘fried, potentially salvageable’ so I get to take my external drive in tomorrow and hope they can save some data… realistically, it’s not SO awful… all of my school stuff is on the external already, and 2007/2008 photos, so really I’d only be losing 1,200 useless photos from this year and some e-mails — inconvenient, but not fatal.

The good news is that I had the foresight to purchase an AppleCare plan when I bought my Macbook so I’m covered – free of charge – and from what the Genius said (hey, their term, not mine…) it doesn’t seem like my personal data has been effected, just the disk utility. Whatever. Also, school hasn’t started yet, so it’s not like I need my laptop right now (Facebook and Flickr just aren’t necessary to my daily existence, sorry) and the laptop I’m currently using (courtesy of my mom) has a webcam, so I can still Skype important people :)

So, we’ll see how tomorrow goes… send up a few prayers to the techno-deities, would you?
