Yay! Let me know the total for the yarn (I'll pay ya before I go, but there's no rush to ship-you know that-zip code is 08215)

The bathroom story is my daughter's worse nightmare, hence the not closing of the stall door and peeing "naked for all to see". Yah, the pee thing would have freaked me out all day too.


i really, really like dell for laptops. i've used a sorta ancient one (don't remember the model) and currently own an inspiron m600 or something. it's wonderful.



I think the micro cable will be cute for some kids things.

You can e-mail me a PayPal invoice.


Ewww! Did you report the non-working handle so someone else doesn't have to go through the same thing?

I like my mac laptop. ;)


Oh, I'm so sad you didn't draw my name for your treasures! It was not meant to be then.

How awful you had to crawl under the stall door. Ewww, I can imagine how you felt the rest of the day... Did this happen in the a.m. or p.m.? The afternoon wouldn't have been so bad as the morning, but still... You poor thing! Did anyone SEE you? That would have been awful too.

Have a great day everyone!

I just bought a Dell Inspiron this past spring. J had such good luck with his Dell Latitude I figured why not. The latitude is 3 years old and going well. I'm not sure I'll be keeping the inspiron to make it's 1st birthday. It's already lost 2 keys and it just stinks.

And, ew, I've had to do the bathroom scramble before. ew. Dedicated for sure :)


I have a Dell Inspiron. I've had it almost a year and there have been no problems. I have a 17 in. Screen and I can sit anywhere with it. The con is the battary thing. Although my particular model wasn't in the recall. Although Sony recalled too, I think a lot of the Laptop batteries were recalled, but I just took mine out of the machine since I don't travel with it. The 17 in screen is heavy though if you plan to carry it about.


Uggh, Bron, you really do go the *extra* mile for your school and students, don't you! Of course, if I were stuck in a bathroom too and I have had it happen before, I have had to crawl underneath the door. It really sucks. I bet you couldn't wait to get home and take a shower!


Next time take your knitting with you, so if you do get stuck you can get some work done. ;)

sorry, no laptop experience to share. the only one I have used is now a dinasaur. i do like my mac though, but this will pose problems if you want to integrate the 2 in all likelihood (home PC and mac laptop). thanks for the bathroom story, it cheered me on my way this morning. ANd I am so pleased Terri scored the CE!


At least you lived to tell the gruesome tale. And what on earth would an actual handicapped person have done if they got stuck in there?!


that was me, the anon one


that was me, the anon one


Yay!!!! Terri doing a happy dance! I just had a feeling the pistachio CE had my name on it. :o) Thanks Bron. I'll email you privately.

Oh that bathroom story -eeeeuuuuwwwww! You sure are dedicated. But it was worth it not to be 'rescued' by someone else hey?! :o)


I got trapped in a bathroom at school last year - one of my first days! I had no way out (it was a single stall, door to the floor), but luckily someone heard me and got the custodian! Glad you escaped safely, and scrub those clothes!


I've been very happy with my Dell, you might be able to get educational pricing since you're a teacher then you can get the Inspirion for a good price instead of the Latitude which is a little crappier (can you tell I'm married to a hardware buyer?). I won't lie to you though the husband has a mac and man that thing runs really smoothly. It wakes up right away after you close it mine still takes awhile to wake up (much like me)and just little things like that. I'm not ready to make the switch myself.


Thanks for all the laptop advice! I was leaning toward Dell to begin with, although when I go "build" everything I'd want in a laptop, the cost raelly goes up! LOL

I need to check out Macs, just because Mac users are so faithful and ...well... rabid about their love of all things Mac. :::grin:::

Thank goodness I finished the week with no more bathroom horror stories! And next week is a short one (we have a 4 day weekend) so I'm looking forward to some rest & re-charge time!


First off. Ackie ackie ackies... I would have been skeeved out all day about having invisible pee splash on me! You are quite a woman!
As for lappies. I have had an old Toshiba (had issues with the screen going black, even after spending a gazillion to have the LCD panel replaced!) I now have an Acer. I am LOVING IT! I got a 17 in screen so it can double as home puter as well as on the go. No issues at all! One thing I have not seen on other puters is a cd-rom insert, no pop out tray! You just slide the disk in. Also has a hidden remote control to be used when you are watching movies etc. Acer Aspire 9500.
