No, the motherboard is fried.
Which means no way for me to have my computer in time for departure. WHICH MEANS I have to get a new laptop for the trip. AAAAAaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuggggggggggggghhhhhh
It's just another crappy thing to deal with, though. We should've known that these things would happen during the days before I leave the country. I've already found a fairly cheap laptop that looks like it'll hold up for three months, so we're going in tomorrow to see if we can get it. And thankfully I already have nearly all the supplies that I need, so this is one of the last things to worry about.
I also feel great excitement about the inauguration and all the new Watchmen things, and yet it still feels kind of fuzzy under the looming of Friday.
Still exciting though. Mmmm.
