I feel so funky

Guess what I did.

When I threw away the garbage before heading to class tonight, I once again demonstrated my supreme idiocy and tossed the bag with the hand also holding my keys. Guess what flew into the dumpster with the trash?


Aren't I clever? Luckily, I am clever enough to know what a dumbass I can be, so I did have my spare set of keys in my purse. However, it did not contain the spare apartment key; the last catsitter still has it. I did the only thing I could do - got in my car and went to class. I had a major test tonight I could not miss.

My sister met me at home when I got out, and let me into the apartment, and then stood guard while I climbed up on a chair, carefully climbed into the dumpster, and started tossing bags, looking for my keys. It took a good five or eight minutes for me to find them - there was a lot more garbage after class than there was before, and my keys were hiding under some awesome bags o' trash. I climbed back out even more carefully, came back in, washed my keys*, and took a long hot shower with lots of soaps. I feel much better now, and I can add a new experience to my list...
"Yes, I have been in a Dumpster before, thank you."

*All of my keys are clean, except for one thing. I had a fuzzy red bear keychain that I am afraid will never get clean again. It was some kind of birthstone bear, and I have had it longer than I have had my current car...actually, I have had it since before I owned a car, come to think of it. It is a red bear about as long as my finger, and I will really miss it. I am going to try to put it through the laundry, but it might fall apart or something, and after sitting in a dumpster for four hours, I don't think anything else will really get it clean. Wish my bear luck on his aquatic journey!

Computer troubles, still

I finally got everything straightened out from the bastards I originally ordered my replacement motherboard from (see below). It turns out that they didn't have the part in stock to start with, and never bothered to inform me, cause hey, I was just trying to buy one. So we got the order negated, and Mike found one on eBay instead. It came in about a week ago, and he put it in the computer, and it worked. BUT - it will not work with my wireless keyboard and mouse, and if you plug any kind of USB thing into it, the speed of the entire computer drops to just below glaciers. Not awesome. I refuse to give up my mouse and keyboard, as well as any hope of plugging in my printer, iPod, camera, and phone into my tower ever again, so we are going to return this motherboard and try a third time to get one that will actually arrive and work like it is supposed to. I am really getting tired of all this, plus I am PMSing really bad, so I am at the point where I am just like "fuck it, I will just never get this one replaced, I will just buy a whole new fucking thing". *sigh*

Plus I am having some kind of sinus problem which I have never had before, and it is fucking with me. I am just incredibly blah right now. How're you?
