Okay, dealing with Fry's has _not_ been going well.

Well technically the people i'm having trouble with right now aren't Fry's, they're Outpost.com which is what Fry's sells stuff online through. I'm not exactly sure how the two are related.

In any case, Vanora and i were looking at the webpage to look up some stats about the computer I'd ordered, and we noticed that it now had a "Product Currently Unavailable" marking on it. I don't remember seeing it when i ordered mine, but it's pretty unobtrusively placed.

So i've been anxiously waiting for word that they shipped it out. Well this evening i got an email from them. It wasn't exactly a good email. Apparently the bank didn't like the address i gave them or something, so i get to try and call them up tomorow and straighten everything out. Howeer the wording is strange, scary, and ammusing.

"Hello,
We released your order, however your bank returned the order to our system because the address did not match what they have on file for the account number you provided. Please contact our customer service department to clarify the information."

You "released" my order? What the _hell_ does that mean?

*releases the order* Run free little order! Run free!... Oh no! Watch out for that bank! Run order! Run! *crunch crunch* Ewwwwwwwww! That's not right!

*hopes he can get this straightened out fairly easily and get his laptop*

Hmmm, also hoping that i get to go home soon. I actually got three hours of sleep last night, but after seven hours saturday night and one hour friday night i'm starting to feel a bit whacked.

Help help!

My mouse is broken! Oh wait, it's just the LJ client that's broken. The window pops up fine, and it minimizes fine, but i can't move it! All the buttons work fine, the menu works fine, but i can't click and drag on the top bar to move it anywhere anymore.

I _am_ glad that it's not my left mouse button that's broken though =)

*grins*

I need to get up early tomorrow.

Why do i need to get up early tomorrow? To beat the LJ client over the head with a baseball bat! No wait, that wasn't it, though that might be fun and productive =)

I'm going to E3 tomorrow!!!!

Normally i go on saturday, and i was thinking that this year it would be doubly usefull, because i have to drive home through Pasadena from LA, so i could ask Vanora and see if she wanted me to stop by or pick her up and do something that evening.

However this year they decided to move the whole conference up by a day. Why? Apparently because of the Memorial Day weekend, or at least that's the best explanation i've heard. I don't understand _why_ though. I suppose if you flew out friday night as soon as it closed you might make it home in time to get some sleep and do some kind of vacation plans for the weekend, but it wouldn't be very pleasant.

On the plus side, i originally had plans to do some shopping with Morna tomorrow night, but i was worried about getting home in time. However if i go to E3 tomorrow (instead of friday like i was originally thinking when i heard about the change) then i can just go straight home and see Morna =)

Yay! E3 and seeing Morna both in the same day!
