As previously mentioned, my somewhat elderly but dearly beloved ibook, Alphonse, met a sudden and dramatic end on Thursday morning. Fortunately for me, my friends are incredibly kind people (thanks especially to [livejournal.com profile] jlh and [livejournal.com profile] calloocallay and [livejournal.com profile] hoshizora for calling to talk me down from the ledge and/or offer aid in the immediate aftermath!) and [livejournal.com profile] emsariel and I are of only middling levels of broke-ness, so we had a lot of options to choose from in terms of how we were going to sort things out.

After an hour of wandering around the house thinking about how this was a perfect time to get a ~*~new laptop~*~ and feeling REALLY guilty about it (although Clio and Paul in particular were like, "Alison, seriously, you were going to have to get a new one soon anyway") Scott and I decided that yeah...YEAH...maybe we were actually going to just splurge. )

As it is, I am just FANTASTICALLY PLEASED with every single thing about this machine, from the keyboard to the trackpad to the new OS to the big empty harddrive to the much much much nicer and higher res screen. I am so pleased that I kind of feel like a character in a commercial -- like John Hodgman is going to try and lure me to Windows 7, only to have me pat him on his head before running into the arms of Justin Long.

SO

BACK TO WORK FOR ME

At least now work is a lot sparklier?
