Free At Last!

Well, I finally broke down and joined the 21st century. I purchased a laptop. I know, I know.... a blogger without a laptop?! That's like Heidi M0ntag with no silicone, right? LOL! And yet... all these years, I've been locked in a room stuck in front of a giant, cumbersome, desktop computer as I surfed the net, played countless games of Bejeweled, liked or disliked status updates on Faceb00k, shopped for cute, crafty finds on Etsy, and blogged about all the important (and unimportant) factoids of my life.

But not anymore, baby. I've found my freedom! I can be anywhere in my house...ANYWHERE... and still be plugged in to the world wide web. In fact, I can be outside my house, too. Right at this very moment, I'm typing on my front porch while enjoying the gorgeous 75 degree-0 humidity summer evening. On.My.Front.Porch! Do you have any idea how happy that makes me?Okay... I realize this is old news to most of you who have enjoyed laptop ownership for years and years. But this is all new to me. I'm like a little baby just discovering the world for the very first time. And so far.... I freakin' LOVE it!!!!!

By the way, I've heard of these things...they're like your telephone...but you don't need to be at home and have a cord to make a phone call!

Wow, that would be really cool!

(heh)

Yay!! I just got mine a year ago - and was able to write it off as a business expense b/c of my etsy shop! How cool is that?? I LOVE my laptop - you can use it while you are sitting in your cozy bed drinking coffee before work - like I am right now!!!!! Haha!

I am so glad for you! Though a bit sad for myself as I am the last blogger in the known universe without a laptop. Sigh.

Wheee!! Next little temptation? A netbook! Just bought one and it's great to travel with and when home to leave in the kitchen for looking up recipes, checking email and so much more!

Enjoy!!

I giggled when I read this post and the commments. I was just as excited when I got my first wireless laptop. And, like Donna, I even take it camping. Hey, it lights up the inside of the tent at least as well as any lantern I have!
