Hey everyone! I hope you had a good weekend. Don’t forget to link-up to your weekend snapshots at the bottom of this post.
My weekend was a mix of frantic panic and hours of lazing away on the couch. I didn’t manage to snap one picture, so I’m sharing some source images of how my weekend went down.
On Friday I got to work and realized I didn’t have my phone with me. I figured I must have left it at home, and went on about my day. I got home from work Friday night and realized I couldn’t find my phone anywhere. I got freaked out because Josh had just left for Connecticut to spend part of his winter break with his parents.
After a few hours of panic I found out the building across the street had found my phone and brought it to their front security desk. I ran over in my PJs around 8pm to go grab it.
Unfortunately when I got it back it looked something like this. My brand new iPhone 6 that I’ve had for less than a month. I was devastated but really happy to have my phone back. I made an appointment at the Apple Genius bar for the next day and three hours and $109 later I had a brand new iPhone. They went to replace the screen and noticed the headphone jack was dented. They didn’t want to risk more problems later on so they just charged me for a screen replacement and gave me a brand new phone. I was ecstatic.
Moral of the story:
- Don’t be a moron and drop your phone crossing the single solitary street to your car.
- Buy Apple care for $99 when you buy your phone so you don’t have to worry if something happens to it.
- If you ignored the first two items and you’ve dropped said phone and don’t have insurance go to the Apple store and they’ll take care of you.
The rest of my weekend was spent absolutely devouring the Fifty Shades Trilogy. I never understood the hype with this series and thought the books were dark and twisted and for lack of a better word: wrong.
When I was watching TV the other day I saw this trailer:
and realized I might have been too quick to judge the books. It didn’t seem like a series about some weird fetish. It seemed like a love story. (Albeit a dark, twisty one.) So I bought the trilogy with an iTunes gift card Josh put in my Christmas stocking and got to reading. It’s all I did all weekend. I literally could not do anything else but be wrapped up in the story. I finished the series Sunday night and feel like I can finally get back to reality. I have to go grocery shopping after work today as a result. 😉
If you’ve been curious about the 50 shades books but never read them because they seemed too out there I recommend you give them a try. I drew a lot of similarities to Cruel Intentions. I wish Ryan Phillippe was about ten years younger so he could play Christian Grey. 😀
Questions of the Day: Have you ever had any tech emergencies? What was the highlight of your weekend? Have you read 50 Shades of Grey? What did you think?
