Mountain Dew and vodka does nothing for a Macbook.

I decided to post a blog today because my friend Celina Blackberry Messaged me and said "I love your blog." At first, I was confused as to why she was even reading my blog (apparently she was bored), but then I decided that I didn't care any ways and that it just made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and inspire me to put something up. 
Last Saturday, my friend Lauren and I decided that we were going to drink alone in her dorm since everyone else went home for the weekend or was busy. We also decided that the best way to get drunk was to play a Harry Potter drinking game while watching The Goblet of Fire. The rules were as follows.

Take a drink every time:
  • you see Cedric Diggory
  • someone says "muggle"
  • someone casts a spell
  • Ron and Hermione awkwardly flirt
  • someone talks in an accent that's not British
  • someone says "Triwizard Tournament"
  • someone says "Voldemort" or "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named"
Clearly, we're just ridiculous nerds. Also, to any one who knows anything about the world of Harry Potter, this drinking game would get you ridiculously drunk, especially when the vodka your drink is mixed with smells suspiciously of rubbing alcohol. I decided it would be a good idea to bring my Macbook to Lauren's room with me.  In retrospect, not the best idea, since I ended up spilling a mixture of Mountain Dew and rubbing alcohol vodka on it. Of course, drunk me was still like this.
"No, self, your laptop will be totally fine just wipe it off with your sleeve and keep drinking til you can barely walk back to your own room wo0o0o0ooo party"

After I sort of threw up on her floor, Lauren decided it would be a good idea if I went back to my own room, which I somehow managed before I blacked out and started texting and calling people. The next morning, I was extremely concerned about my computer. I was also extremely concerned because I felt like I was going to blow chunks. And I did. All over the floor. Thankfully it was clear liquid and easy to clean, but not until I had slipped in it on my way to getting a towel, therefore winning the "Classy College Chick" award. I was so proud.
It was then that I realized that something was horribly wrong with my Macbook Pro.  Some of the keys were sticking really badly and my touchpad wasn't working at all.  Apparently, it did not take too kindly to the Mountain Dew and vodka. Thankfully, the rest of the computer was completely fine and some of the function has come back to the touchpad since then, but it's still nowhere near where it was.  I now have to use this stupid little USB mouse most of the time until I can get it checked out in the Apple Store to see how much it would cost to get it cleaned out.

I hate this thing.
The moral of this sad, sad tale is to never mix electronics with vodka. Bad things happen. I live this life so you won't have to.

Also, I'll probably be making a new youtube video tomorrow and posting it so make sure you watch it and junk.
