Shiny New Monday


Well check this out! I’m writing this blog post from my brand-new computer! Does it look different? I think it looks different.

It turned out that it didn’t take close to three weeks to arrive. In fact, it didn’t even take one week. So here I am, all fancied up and trying to adjust to typing with a new keyboard. And a new touchpad. I’ve already erased one whole sentence accidentally.


It’s got a touchscreen, so now I’m really in the 21st century. It also isn’t dying every so often, which I could see as a distinct advantage while writing. The old one hadn’t BSODed while I was in the middle of any actual writing, which is good, but it was only a matter of time.

Getting a new computer is a little like getting a new place to live, you have to learn where everything goes, you have to find all the glitches and quirks. Like I just discovered it’s easier to type with this one when it’s closer, so I may have to find a new way of working. But I guess that’s part of the fun of getting something new.

Meanwhile for anyone keeping score, I still have the men working right outside my window. They are currently having a very spirited discussion that I can’t completely understand; I also can’t tell if they are speaking English or Spanish. I can hear the hammering and drilling, though, so it’s back to my runway guider ear muffs.

Ah, that’s better.

So that was a lot of babble with not much to say, I suppose. But it’s one of those Mondays where I never heard the starter pistol, so after my initial “wait, is it time for me to start?” an uneven, hesitant gait is better than nothing. Right?

Yep, I’m sticking to that.

    • My Dad says exactly the same thing, that’s just too funny. I like the convenience. And I like to write with the computer on my lap (using a pad), so a mouse is annoying.


  1. Congrats on the new tech toy. I got a touch pad with this laptop. The first year and a half, perfect. Now back to the mouse. Touch pads get touchy after awhile. Enjoy it while it lasts. I love new toys. 🙂 What does BSODed mean?? I’m nosy and old.
