Geeky frustration

Firstly, my printer died. It was a Canon, and they felt badly that their tech support couldn’t resurrect it, so they gave me a 10% discount on a new one. Yay! But when my new PIXMA iP1600 arrived, it didn’t have a USB cable with it. Apparently they don’t include a USB cable because, gosh, then they couldn’t sell me one that fits my needs exactly! Grrrrr. So now I have to go buy one. Jerks. At least it gives me an excuse to go to Frys.
Secondly, I ordered a new laptop from Lenovo, makers of Thinkpads (for the curious, I’m getting a Thinkpad R51, which was on sale). This is all fine and good. But I ordered it on 12/12, and it still isn’t here. Apparently it has been held up in customs. I really hope it ships soon because it will arrive at my house rather than my work (they only ship to the paying credit card’s billing addy), and if nobody is here to receive it, I will wind up going down to the UPS office before work some morning to pick it up. Gah.
No doubt a large part of my irritation with this is due to the fact that I have a cold, but still. Grr. I want my laptop! I want my printer to work! ARGH!
But, as I said, at least now I have an excuse to go to Frys. Yay Frys, the Geek Mecca!
