In other news, I *also* got my laptop's broken (but under warranty!) CD/DVD drive replaced today, and it works perfectly so far! YAY!
(And, ETA: My credit card company is doing a sale on items you can get with points, so I just ordered (for no monies at alllll!!) some new dishes and a set of desperately needed new towels. WOO!)
It's been a good day.
