Day 295 – Coming Up Blank

Here is a picture from just after my 3rd electrolysis appointment(Chin is super swollen), I’ll be making a timeline of my facial hair removal soon.

I’m posting this from my girlfriend’s laptop because yesterday the screen on my Macbook Pro stopped working. It wase working fine when I closed the lid but when my girlfriend opened it the display wouldn’t react. I tried every method in the book to fix it and nothing worked. I tried hooking it up to my TV but that didn’t seem to work either so it looks like the graphics processor died. I took it to the genius bar at the Apple store and Applecare will cover the repair despite the laptop being from 2008. I looked it up and the particular NVIDIA graphics processor in it has been known to prematurely fail. In the end my Macbook with a new logic board should be on my doorstep in a weeks time free of charge! I am impressed that Apple is making the effort to replace faulty components in their products.

here is an article talking about the Issue: http://support.

Like I said, yesterday was my 3rd electrolysis appointment. Things went pretty well and  we cleared all but a few hairs on my chin and we will be able to start on my upper lip next week. I know I’ve said it before but now I’m sure that we will be able to do a full clear in 2 more treatments!

My breasts are doing  well, they definitely stick out a bit and look odd if I don’t wear a bra.

I’m working on a new feature to allow you to ask me questions and be able to see my responses to other peoples questions too! it should be up at some point today or tomorrow.

    I’m sorry your laptop pooed on you. It was because I touched it, wasn’t it?! In any case, you now have in your room my two extra computers. In the event that your mac did shit on itself, which I was kind of expecting (no lie, cough), at least you’d have had my.. err.. shitty desktop pc to work with. But you have my laptop now so whatevs! Just don’t get any Reeses Pieces in it.

    Also– you should take pictures of that bra. Yeah. That’s be awesome. Ehehe, I mean everyone seen your breasts so why not, right! AND… electrolysis on your upper is gonn’ huuuuuuuurrrrt like a beyatch.

    You are just jealous I have a mac that doesn’t take 5 minutes to boot up! I won’t get any Resees on it, although I did already stuff the CD drive with Marsha’s fur…

    I may post pics of my bra once I fill it out a little better, and the upper lip is going to suck more than anything!

    .. NOOO!!! Dx

    I don’t use that CD drive anyway. And, hush you. You know how I solve that taking-too-long-to-boot issue? I never turn it off and instead I make it Hibernate. That’s what I do with my desktop (the one I’m using now). Ahaha. That way it stops making that GAWD-AWFUL noise, but I don’t have to wait forever for it to wake up.
