Happy New Year, f-list!  Hope you all had a great holiday/season/whatever with family, friends, and food.  I did.  Too much food, but I will remedy that in the next few weeks.

I made a trip to see family in Ohio.  Spent a lot of time on my new iMac.  Have I told you the sad tale about my laptop?  I guess it's about five years old now.  A couple of years ago the monitor went out--most of the time.  People told me it was probably the back light, and could be fixed for a $100 or so, but I just couldn't see putting money into it.  So, I hooked it up to an ancient white behemoth of a monitor, and kept on using it.

Then, about a year ago, it started slowing down.  Sloooowwwwwinnnngggg down.  When you would click on "My Computer", the hard drive showed up in red.  As in, "I am totally full, don't even think about putting more crap on me."

About six months ago, the huge white monitor went out.  I hooked it up to the tv, which sounds ok, except you had to sit sideways in the computer chair and crank your neck around to see the screen.

Finally, iMacs went on sale, and oh, I am in LOVE. 
Take a look at Neil Gaiman's New Year's Wish.

Back to work tomorrow.  I am trying to bear it the best I can.  :)

I thought it was pretty great, too. I'm usually a play-it-safe person...

Back to work so late! SO LUCKY!


awww Neil Gaiman is so awesome.

I replaced my 6 years old laptop as the hard drive was getting too full this year. Win!

Everyone at work was grousing about having only a week and a half off. Needless to say, this doesn't usually get much sympathy from the rest of the working work.

New computers are so wonderful!
