Dept. of Gah.

Really, brain? Really????

....aaand I just found my power cord and adapter. In the backpack I had checked once, twice, thrice. Well, $114 Canadian later, I now have two adapters.  Oh, brain, you're so sleep-deprived. Oh, wallet, you're so much thinner.

Doesn't it always go that way?

Have a good trip home, and I'm glad your visit is ending on a hopeful note.

Heh. Yep - although, as others have mentioned to me, the benefits of having a spare power cord are not to be sniffed at. (I think this will give me three in total; and since I'm a "plug it in" girl rather than a "work off the battery" one, I've decided to continue to be pleased at the purchase.

The trip ended up so much better than it could have, and I think the good wishes of everyone on my f'list helped. That's not just polite phraseology, it's the god's honest.

Your power cord and adapter wes clearly off partying in another dimension all those times you looked at it wasn't there.

FWIW, I find having 2 power cords with adapters for my laptop to be so useful, I always buy an extra. One lives in my computer backpack; the other stays at my desk. That way, I'm not constantly having to plug and unplug the one at my desk and I always have one whenever I take my computer anywhere. So while your budget and stress levels certainly could have done without the durned thing off partying when you were looking for it, I hope you'll find it a useful purchase.

(I lucked out with my most recent laptop; the appearance of the power connector is a tiny bit different, but the old ones work with it, so I already have two extras without having to buy even one. Win.

I am in full agreement with you, because I pulled the backpack apart (which caused a great many curious glances in the Halifax library, I can tell you) three times. I wanted to be sure that I wasn't going to make an unneeded purchase. Physics be damned, the thing wasn't there when I looked!

And I have decided to consider it a useful purchase. Why bitch, when I can't do anything about it?*

* Which normally never stops me, but occasionally I have unexpected fits of common sense.

I wish you could have heard me laughing at Mac's house when I looked into the backpack to extricate the new power cord - and found this one, plain as you please. And a good guffaw or two is good for the constitution. Heh.
