The power cord for my laptop has died again. At this point, I’m 90% sure that the problem is damage caused by various people tripping over the cord when I’m using my laptop in the bedroom. The only outlets I can reach in there put the cord at mid-shin level. I have to step over it if I need to leave for any reason, and Cordelia has to step over it if she wants hugs. The plug comes out of the wall easily, and the cord falls in half easily and detaches from my laptop easily (it’s magnetic). Cordelia’s power cord is working for my laptop, so it’s not my laptop.

I think I even know what I did this time— One end of the cord got stuck in something, and I tugged to get it loose rather than going over to see what the problem was. I didn’t tug all that hard, but… Yeah. Scott is going to be pissed at needing to buy yet another cord.

I didn’t do any writing yesterday. I was too tired. I suspect I’ll be too tired, today, too.

That really sucks... last time I had to replace mine, it cost me $100 -_-

Ugh, that bites. :( I'd be awfully tempted to add an extension cord to it, and let the extension cord cross the trip zone.
