Lazy Sunday.

Another eventful weekend for me; Friday a bunch of friends came to visit us and we headed to a party. Ended up not going until midnight so of course once we got to the place there was a banger in progress. The plan was to have me drive and someone else drive my car back to campus, but of course these two little high school girls who came with us were all like OMG IVE NEVER BEEN DRUNKN BEE-4 just couldnt help themselves.. so I had to take responsibility again. One of our good friends had a little too much to drink though, so taking care of him took priority, considering he fell into a ditch trying to pee.

Oh u.

SO after we let him empty his stomach a bit in the bathroom we decide its about time to get our buddy out of there, and as were walking out, the fucking cops are storming the place. I was acting cool and calm , just wanting to get my friend out and avoid anyone getting arrested, but I realized after that I had a water bottle full of vodka in my pocket, which is the oldest trick in the book for concealing alcohol, because vodka looks like water for the most part. But at this huge party where everyone was obviously drinking, all the cops had to do was ask me for the bottle and I couldve been absolutely fucked. Luckily that didnt happen and the cops let us walk out. I think the fact that we were helping a friend get out in one piece showed the cops that we were all being relatively safe. One of them even asked me if we were 'babysitting' him, to which I responded yes.

Problem officer?
Long story short, we got back safely, and although I couldve been arrested, and couldve been stuck without a ride because our original DD couldnt resist peer pressure, and aforementioned annoying high school friends wouldnt shut the fuck up until 6am (got maybe half an hour of sleep), it was a pretty fun night. Saturday everyone went back home because they all live in this state and I sat in my room playing Halo. I was content with it, to be honest. I left the room around 11:30pm to get food, was planning on driving to the calzone place up the street but then I considered burger king. Didnt realize I forgot my wallet until AFTER I ordered, so I ended up speeding out of BK and getting a calzone anyway. But today I've got some reading to do and then the week begins again. I'm basically taking in college life as it comes.

Oh and one more thing, I just recently bought an 80GB iPod classic off eBay for $90. Its a bit scratched up and it has the infamous error 1430, the one that prevents the iPod from syncing with iTunes (which I was aware of when I bought it). I researched the error and found that it can be easily fixed my using my MacBook's disk utility to wipe and reformat the hard drive entirely.

Here's the problem, I've tried fixing the problem through all means of hard drive formatting and firmware downgrading and updating etc. etc. and my final diagnosis is that it needs a hard drive replacement, which could cost me another $130 to repair. It does make the telltale clicking noise that means a busted drive. But before I go to Apple, does anyone else know of a possible fix, preferably something short of cracking the thing open? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.
