New Computer!

About a month ago, in the midst of a facebook conversation, my computer crashed. Hard core. Nik thinks its the video card, cause it turns on fine, but the screen never comes up. But, because my computer is about 7 years old, it was time for a new one anyway. Unfortunately we are having trouble getting the info from my old computer. So I only have pictures from before February. I desperately hope Mac Docs can help out there. Anyway, the moral of the story is*, Lena has a new computer! Its a 13 Macbook Pro. And it is the most advanced piece of technology I have ever owned. I need Nik to tell me all the cool things it can do. It doesn't have a mouse click button, just a smooth track pad that I just press, and it even makes a small click sound. Very convenient. My keys are black with illuminated letters and such that make typing in low light a lot easier. I can't wait to play my new Chocolatier game on it, the last one was not fast enough!

div>But, I do miss it. It was my first computer that was all mine. Nik got it for me for my birthday the first year we were married. He was working at Mac Docs and it came in as a trade-in so he got a good deal on it. It was about 3 years old and was discolored from cigarette smoke. But I loved it. And I was hard on it. I left it in my car over night in the middle of winter....I stuck it in the couch cushions when I wanted more room on the couch...I dropped it on its side when it was plugged in, so the power cord would never quite stay in the way it should have. All of these things Nik has pointed out WILL NOT happen with this computer. Oh sure, of course not Nik.

I have been very sentimental lately. First the computer, now my car is making some horrible noises and I am afraid that Mason is going to tell me that I need to get a new one. Which would not only mean saying good bye to my second most favorite car ever, but that we would be that much farther away from getting a house. Hopefully Mason will tell me its a easy fix and I can have have my car back, nice and healthy. Oh sure.

Well, there is my post. Don't expect anything else soon unless I can get my photos off the old compy.

Congrats on the new computer! I love new computers-it's like starting with a blank slate.
Sorry about your car-I hope it turns out alright!
