a new era

I've said good-bye to my PC. I've converted over to the Mac side. while reminiscing with a fellow mac user...i realized the last time i used a mac i was possibly in 1st grade, back then DOS was a major operating system for computers, floppy discs were really floppy...and my only concern was that i hoped my mom didn't put crunchy peanut butter in my PBJ sandwich. Times have changed since then. i no longer have a teddy ruxpin lunchpail and i'm making lunches now.

I just would like to add that Best Buy's geeksquad protection thingy that they have for laptops is very good. Prior to this i had a vaio. i bought it a couple years prior along with the 3 year extended protection plan thingy they have...and since the vaio was going to cost more to fix than it was worth they let me choose a laptop up to the value of what i paid...and so my relationship with the Mac begins. So far so good.

arghhhh matey

the pirate situation

My political views lean a little [my little is really a lot] towards the left.
being that i moved to the sticks of NY i rarely get to listen to my independent radio station the way i would like to. Hmm...and i think the only station they have out here to my liking is NPR.

but anyways...I've been away from this blogging thing for a minute. happy a few familiar faces from cali peeped through NYC and i felt at home for a minute :) it was really nice.

and i just want to make it official...i'm converting to apple. so YAY for the macbook on it's way. i'll probably wait till i get that before i start blogging more. i'm still sort of sad that i lost all my pictures on the last laptop. hopefully the kids will forgive me. :(
i feel like such a horrible mother for that...but atleast i got a few things posted on myspace and stuff right? oh well. can't sweat that stuff. but that just goes to show you...i need to have a healthy distrust for the digital.

well i hope everyone's been doing's mid week...the weekends almost here :)
