Computers Anonymous

Last night I flew into New Jersey to spend the holidays with my family. As I was boarding the plane, I was overcome with horror when I realized I had forgotten to pack the power cord for my MacBook Pro. An eternal optimist, I calmed myself down and then spent the flight thinking of all the fun non-computer related things I would do with my time once the battery died.

The next morning after breakfast, halfway through reading my emails and sorting through feedback from Firebug users, my laptop took its last breath of lithium and passed out. My reaction - I immediately stole my Mom's car and drove to the nearest Apple Store to buy a new cord.

So much for curbing that addiction.
