Hi, I’m a Mac


I have had this MacBook since 2007.  I think it is dying.  (Pause here for a moment of silence for my Buttercup).  It is slow, the keyboard does weird things, and it is getting old.  I suspect it is getting close to its best before date.

This leads me to a conundrum.

I love my Mac.  Love it, love it, love it.  But, as you all know, Macs are expensive.  Really expensive.  I just don’t know if it is worth it.

On the other hand, PCs seem so clunky, and I am not used to them anymore.  Plus, they don’t look as cool (and yes, I know how shallow that sounds).

I have been going back and forth about this for months And I am no closer to a decision.  This is driving me crazy.

Hey, I’m posting from the coffee shop!

Wow, here I am typing on my very own laptop computer.  It is my Christmas present from Tom.  I’m so pleased.  We don’t have the house set up for wireless internet yet, so I am at Panera making sure this all works.  So far so good.  I will continue to use it and get used to this keyboard, but I will wrap up the box and put it under the Christmas tree so I have a present to open.  Yay Tom.

 This should come in very handy while we are in Rome.  I can use it to write my blog entries and then just upload them from studio.  I can also use it to keep a journal without all that pesky hand-writing, and I can use it to keep track of what the kids are doing for school.  And if I get bored, I can use it to write the great American novel.  Because it’s just that easy, right?

I am discovering right now that if you actually use this on your lap, the keyboard is in exactly the right position.  It’s when I put it on the table that things get funky.  Hence the name “laptop” I suppose.  There is something on here called iweb that I will have to fool around with.  But right now it won’t open.  I probably have to restart my computer but  I don’t want to do that right this second.  This is so cool.  I think the children are very jealous.  I’m sure they will want their own computers now.  Too bad for them.
