how annoyed I am today, at myself. Anyone who asks me why I am so particular and anal retentive about things is getting a punch in the face. My bad luck began this morning when I went thought the security line. I went to take out my laptop and lo and behold the power cord that I take on every single trip for the past 4+ years is missing. Why is this missing? Oh I know I took it to the Cape this weekend and forgot to transfer it back to my travel bag. Great. Maybe the laptop has some juice left in it. Nope only at 39%, that isn’t going to take me through the whole week. Okay check if someone is coming from the office and will be at my site on Tuesday night. Maybe they can bring the cord with them. Nope everyone is already out on the road. Okay fine maybe I can find a universal power cord. My model is not listed. I find a power cord with my model listed but it is a simple power cord and if I am going to buy it I am going to resell it to someone when I get back. I need to get the air/car/home combo.
Unfortunately there is no Comp USA around here (so much for the homogeneousness of America that everyone bitches about). Comp USA carries the iGo products, Best Buy and Walmart carry the Targus products. Both at fine products but I know exactly what I need with iGo. So I go to the store see if I can find the right product, nope not listed. I go back the hotel find out that the demo I have on Wednesday is even more involved than I thought so I look up the Targus site find the adapter I need and race back to Wal-Mart to get it.
You see, I only have today to get this done because tomorrow I don’t get in till 11:30pm at the hotel for a 7:00am demo. So instead of today’s 500th photo and the photos from the weekend you will have to wait till Wednesday afternoon when I get to my last hotel after the demo, that I’m praying goes well, for any new pictures.
Updated: I bought the Targus Universal Anyplug 70W notebook adapter. $116.00 to anyone who wants it, used for only 3 days by a very annoyed individual who did nothing damaging to it. Just to his own psyche.
