Yeaaahhhh, About That...

Ugh. Do I have to? Ok, fine. It's not that I don't want to blog. I LOVE blogging. I especially love it when I get awesome feedback from the half-dozen people that stick around. I just don't want to be that person that does... well, basically what I just did up there, giving excuses. But, since you insist, I'll make an explanatory list.

1) I'm tired.

2) I just moved into a new house. A fantastic house that was built in 1959 and happens to be right across the street From. The. Beach. AND it has a backyard WITH a fence. So, yeah, moving. It kinda feeds back into reason number one.

3) My job is nearing the completion date and I can no longer sucessfully blog at work. Reasons for that are:
a) Less time to do it. And,
b) I'm now sharing space with two other people.

4) My boyfriend is a complete tool moron ... uh, bless his sweet little heart, I love him so much, but he just CAN'T keep from screwing up the computer at home. He has less than a year of "tech" experience and can barely navigate email. Why, oh WHY on earth would he insist on playing in Windows Explorer and clicking on every little thing that catches his attention? I don't know. If you know, could you tell me? Anyway, I have GIVEN UP on being able to use the computer after he's done a complete system restore not once, not twice, but THREE times now. And, I'm not sure how, but he's even screwed that up. So, twice now (TWICE!!!) I have spent an hour or so, reinstalling all the proper drivers and programs that I like, getting it back to "functioning" order, only to have him screw it up so thoroughly that he's left with no choice (in his opinion) but to completely wipe it all out. Oh. And he's convinced that malicious hackers have hidden in his computer and are stealing his information. Nevermind that he doesn't have anything on there worth stealing and the fact that three different virus scanners say that there is nothing (NOTHING) wrong. So, all of that kinda goes into the next reason:

5) I want to get a new computer so bad. Just for me. I've got the money. I've been squirrling away the pennies for awhile now. Since I haven't had time to do anything recreational at work anymore, I had been using the one at home more often. At least, until... you know. It's too painful to speak of. So, I simply MUST get a new computer. I'm getting a Mac. Yes, I know Dell's are relatively inexpensive and I know that Vista's not that bad. But, I need more. I haven't heard One. Single. Thing. that is negative about a Mac. What I have heard is that they run faster. And that you can run both the Mac operating system AND Windows. And, all the programs and features that I have checked out are simply amazing. The few people that I know of that are familiar with Macs recommend them. One even went so far as to say, "Buy a Mac and don't look back." Hmmm.

So, that's pretty much it in a nutshell. That's why I barely blog. But, I promise. This is not the way it will be forever. I promise there will come a day when I sit down each evening and jot down my thoughts and share them. Hell, they might even be funny.

I certainly enjoy MY mac, but they're more expensive, and much more difficult to fix by the average user.

Pros and cons. Happy housewarming!

I just cannot express enough how excited I am that you are back! And look!! TWO POSTS!!! I am officially overwhelmed!!

Oh, and my first computer was a Mac. Then I married a PC guy who forbid them. I'm now divorced and I truly truly truly want to buy a Mac. I think it would make me feel so finally FREE!!!

Very pleased to meet you.

All of those are acceptable excuses.

I'd like to see pictures of your beach when you get a chance.

I love cats too!
