Ouch, sounds like what happened to me when I tried to replace the screen on my 1st powerbook; things just got worse and worse and worse haha...Good luck man. I'm in Florida, but if I was in NJ, I'd help ya out.

I hope your GF really likes you otherwise.....;D (no further comments necessary)

Take it on in to an authorized Apple repair place and pay to have it fixed right, either that, or start looking for another GF. :(

Regards.
