ode to a hitachi magic wand

You know, it’s strange.  I can’t say I used my dearly departed Hitachi Magic Wand with any structured regularity – sometimes almost every day for a week or two, sometimes a couple of times a week, sometimes not at all for a week or three.  But now my Hitachi Magic Wand is dead, and I’ve missed it fiercely these past…. two weeks.  Is that all it’s been?

The Magic Wand and I took a trip to the post office today, to mail it to Vibratex for repair/replacement/Idon’tcarewhatsolongasIgetitback – I was absolutely thrilled when Vibratex’s customer service replied to tell me that they would honour the warranty even though I was outside of the US.  (And on a side-note – Firefox, pls stop telling me I spelt ‘honoured’ incorrectly.  And ‘spelt’.  kthx.)

So here’s hoping they actually do it, and I didn’t just spend $15 and 30 minutes in line at the post office to be told I wasted my time.

(And $15.  That could totally have bought a bullet or something.)

Hitachi Magic Wand Update

Did I mention that my Hitachi Magic Wand is broken?  Because it totally is.

Good news, however – I got a reply from Vibratex (the North American wholesalers for the Hitachi Magic Wand) today, and it seems that they will repair/replace my Magic Wand despite being north of the US border!


I am, needless to say, very pleased about this.  The Hitachi Magic Wand and I will be taking a trip to the post office this weekend, to get it all mailed out and On Its Way To Be Fixed.  Hopefully it doesn’t cost too much to mail…

I had a Plan.Hitachi Magic Wand

It was, if I do say so myself, a rather good plan.  I had intended for my first post to be a review of my much-loved Hitachi Magic Wand; sadly, the universe had other plans, and the universe won the coin-toss.

My Hitachi Magic Wand is dead.

Why would you do this to me, Hitachi Magic Wand?  Have I not loved you (almost) exclusively for a year?  Have I not defended you from my significant other’s laughter at your clunky appearance and loud sound?  Have I not dutifully stayed on my side of the bed so that I wouldn’t accidentally unplug your power cord?

Well, yes, I damn well did.  All of it.  And my Hitachi Magic Wand betrays me.  Woe.  And I don’t even know what I did.

Sunday morning, my traitorous Hitachi Magic Wand was working fine.  Very fine, in fact, even if I do say so myself.  But Sunday evening, I go to turn it on, and my once-beloved Magic Wand sounds like a drill.  Worse still, there is barely any no vibration.  Only noise.  It wasn’t dropped, or damaged, or flung at the wall or hung from the ceiling, or fed to a lion.  My Hitachi Magic Wand just… stopped working.  And instead makes noise.

True to its now-revealed treacherous nature, the Hitachi Magic Wand chose just (literally, twelve days) before the manufacturer’s warranty is up to break.  Long past being able to return it to the store I bought it from.

I just hope they will honour the warranty outside of the US.  Otherwise, I’m screwed.

And not in a good way.
