Friends, meet my new computer:
I haven't had my very own computer for over 11 years, and the only reason why I had that first laptop was because I won it. I'm still not even sure how I won it, but the University of Alberta gave it to me, and I remember watching the complimentary Weezer video for Buddy Holly and thinking wow, technology is incredible. The computer was almost as good as a TV!
Anyway, it's 2009 and I decided to invest my tax refund in a computer/my relationship. Now I won't be annoyed with Michael when he uses his computer for work, god forbid, and he won't be annoyed with me when I take his computer to my car co-op meetings. Or when I play Scramble while he waits to watch an episode of 30 Rock. That sort of thing.*
Also, I can take more photos of this nature:
Hopefully these photos get more flattering as time goes on, but I like this one because it captures my fear of learning how to use a Mac.
