Well, Mark is an idiot.

I either left my laptop at the Vivace Roasteria, or else I left it on the sidewalk next to my Forester while I was changing out of my heavy jacket to go clubbing.
I'll let you know which.

I'm tempted to stay up the mere two hours until the Vivace opens at 6:30am, just to see.


I stayed up way late last night, not productively tho. After some sleep, I got up around noon, did a few chores, watered the cat, and worked on my piano piece. At 4pm, I went to Cap Hill for the regular monthly social gathering at the Vivace. Fun, tho sparsely attended. Then I spent the next several hours wandering around Cap Hill, shopping and people watching. I went back to the Vivace, used their wireless to do some reading, and then went to the Merc.

Which was fun, it was crowded, but saw very very few people I knew, mosly just artvixn. After a few hours of sitting on my butt, I sucked down a litre of water and a redbull, and then spent the next 5 hours out on the dance floor. Much eye candy was seen and enjoyed. Made my legs and feet hurt. I still have almost no sense of rhythm (it's a bit easier when I have a close partner to try to sync to), and I'm embarrassed still by my lack, but no longer enough so to not actually go dance.

After they shut down at 4am, I stumbed back to the Forester, at which point I noticed the lack of my computer. The Forester hadn't been broken into... I had just stupidly left it somewhere. Either on the sidewalk, or at the cafe'.



Please please please, I hope I left it at the cafe. Or else it's found by someone honest. Or it turns up mostly undamaged at a local pawn place or at Seattle Laptop.

Mark is an idiot.

Well, it wasn't left at the cafe'.

Will take out some lost&found ads in the local papers, and tomorrow will call Seattle Laptop and the local pawn places.

Oh No!!!

I remember when I lost my fanny pack, with my PDA (nicknamed my brain), my wallet, my cell phone, my personal bits and pieces...everything that was me...on a bus, and ten minutes later the bus driver checked and found it not there. I was devastated. Turned out that the person on the bus after me found it and, rather than turn it over to the bus driver, had taken it directly to the lost and found (the Seattle METRO lost and found doesn't make things available for review until 24 hours after loss...stupid). So I didn't find out until the next day, after I had cancelled all my credit cards, gotten a temporary ID card, etc, that I still had it.

Good, good, good luck in getting it back, hon. I know what you're feeling.

I just hated that sick, devastated, self-blaming, "oh no! no no no" feeling.

Thanks.

Hope you're feeling better yourself, and got to spent a bit of time at Arisia. And that my little "care and samples package" got put to good use...

Oh, dude, you have my sympathies big-time. I know how much that would suck! I do hope you get it back in short order.

Erg. That sux. I'm sorry to hear it. I hope you get it back.

It was nice gabbing with you last night. Interesting conversation despite having to scream.
