Guess what we brought home today? A brand spankin' new laptop. Yep, GG and I are the proud new owners of a MacBook. Sure I could be buying a new purse and clothes for my trip to DC, but why do something practical when I can go slightly nuts instead?
I'm not saying we're nuts because we got the laptop, that's been in the works for a year or so. No, I think we are slightly nuts because we went to the dark side and got Mac. It's our way of going middle-age crazy. Fortunately we have Shmoo to help us out if things get too complicated, but so far so good.
We got on the internet, set up access to our work emails and now I'm writing my very first post on Presley. Since we call the desk PC Elvis (Beanie's idea) I figure we'll call the laptop Presley. Too sissy? Not manly enough for the attractive aluminum body? GG says to go with Costello. There's more than one Elvis in the world... What?? There's only about a bazillion fans that would beg to differ, but I got bigger fish to fry than that debate. I have to figure out what to name the laptop that will begin many wonderful adventures with
me us starting today.
Poor GG. He thinks I'm going to share. Wait! Stop the presses! I think I have the perfect name. I'm going to call the laptop 'Jax' after my fave heroine in Ann Aguirre's GRIMSPACE. Jax the space jumper taking people, or "jumping" them, from place to place in mere moments.
My Our laptop will be taking me us places too. It's insane how happy this is making me.
Jax it is.
Let the games begin.
*whispers* GG wants a turn now. What's that saying about sharing being good for the soul? Anybody? Bueller?
ETA: Bear with me. I'm not as quick (yet) or as proficient (yet) with the Jax' keyboard and ze typos zey abound. I've left several after I published comments here and there. Dammit anyway!
