clicking pretty

I am happy to announce to you all that I type this post on our super-fancy, brand-new laptop computer. I'm feeling that fresh, giddy whirl that only comes from buying something new that I never indulge in.

We are not technologically hip people and I only completed the purchase today after calling my brother-in-law 4 times from the giant warehouse store and consulting with him at length (and very slowly) about gigs, processors and wireless cards.

After looking at the dizzying array of computers for sale at the store, I know that my computer is not fancy. It wasn't the very cheapest one, but almost.

At the store, my eyes wandered to the really shiny black laptops with the super-big screens and I wished a little bit that I could choose something sexier. But, then I got it home and, as if by a miracle, I found it transformed from homely to downright racy!

Great Scott! When did it become possible to browse the internet and listen to cheesy talk radio at the same time?!? I may have to begin exploring these podcasts I've heard so much about. Any recommendations?

Take my advice, and keep your current computer for 10 to 12 years, then go buy a new one.
It will blow your freaking mind.

If you've been checking in with me regularly, I thank you and I'm sorry for my absence.
There is so much to blog about. I'll save knitting news for another day soon.



You lucky girl!
The knitpicks podcasts are pretty good, I'm also a fan of the Wait Wait Don't Tell Me Ones from NPR. Both are free.
This American Life podcasts are great too.

Happy computing!
Yeah for new computers!! Enjoy!
Right on! Laptop! That's where I've been spending my time too-podcasts are too interesting and hilarious. Knitpicks and Cast On--check them out.
