The Joys of a Broken Down Laptop

This morning in class I had one of the more interesting setups I’ve seen in law school. The last screw holding up my laptop’s monitor broke off, meaning that the monitor now just falls straight down. I had some stuff to do on it and I still needed to take notes on it, so what do I do? My fix was to take down one of my big federal supplement law books and prop up the monitor while I was in class. Before I say more let the image of me sitting at a table with a law book behind my laptop propping up the monitor sink in.
What makes this setup even more bizarre is where the federal supplement I’m using came from. It was one of the props I bought from the set of the old NBC show Ed once it was cancelled. So, a fictional bowling alley lawyer helped me take my notes in real life law school this morning.
Lastly, I feel my habit of purchasing memorabilia has been somewhat vindicated. I’m not like other people who just put their knick knacks up on a wall, oh no, my memorabilia to work. Luckily for me my laptop is still under warranty, so I guess I'll finally have to get it fixed.
