“if it’s love you can work it out, that’s the cruelest lie”
This is on its way to my house as we “speak”:
Oh, it’s so pretty. And y’know, useful and stuff.
But seriously, it will be amazing to have a computer that works again. Not to knock my current computer; i’m quite fond of it, but he’s like 6 years old now and can only do one. thing. at. a. time. I’m, most of all, looking forward to the ability to work from home, which i have discovered always makes me like my job more – and i almost always get a lot more done, as well. I think it’s directly related to being able to take small breaks that are really breaks. Doing laundry, playing with the dogs, cooking lunch – not checking email, reading webcomics or news (ahem, blogging) , which, while not my work, is still staring atthe damn computer, and so doesn’t help me recharge at all.
But, yes, all i really meant to say was that i’m super excited. (And, in case you were worried about him, the old boy is going to be strictly my jukebox now. It’ll be a good and highly valued retirement.)
