There's nothing more frustrating than finding yourself without the proper cords for one's electronic devices.
First as I'm packing to come to Dinuba I find myself without my camera battery charger (and I'm pretty sure I left it in Vienna).
Second as I'm in the car on the five hour drive to Fresno I find that I didn't bring my iPod cord...now I have to look forward to another five hour drive without music. Or worse, five hours of listening to ESPN...
And lastly, as I watch my laptop die last night, I realize that my power cord is still on the floor of my living room. Good thing Dad brought his laptop.
My dad has been generous enough to loan me his truck for the month. It's really fun to drive. The only bad part is (aside from the gas mileage and the fact that it's the size of an U-bahn) is that it's automatic...so boring.
