Twirling madly!

Okay, so I've been saying for years now that one day I was going to get a computer at home, and everyone who knows me would just nod sagely with an expression on their face best translated as "Yeah, right".  But I'm here this morning to say I finally did it.  *twirls*  I'm now the proud owner of a brand-new 4.1 lb Sony Vaio laptop with several bells and whistles, not least of which is embedded wireless and a WAN connection, which means that I have internet access anywhere I can get a cell phone signal.  Like on the commuter bus in the middle of the freeway going to work, which is where this is being typed.  *more twirling*

So, Jen, you'll definitely have internet access while you're visiting, and we won't even have to walk across the street to Starbucks or Barnes & Noble to go online.  And Tavi?  Suddenly that 8-hour time difference between Scotland and L.A. becomes almost irrelevant, at least in terms of writing Kat-Dominique.  *\o/* 

More later.

Thanks! Of course I may now have to start posting about the effects of sleep deprivation, since I'll be spending most of my waking hours at home online. But at least I can stop the 2-hours-each-way trek downtown to my office on the weekends just to use the computer for personal stuff, which is what I've been doing ever since my local library started limiting online access to two 1-hour blocks per day.

Finally! ;-) You'll see, it's fun. And now you can start making your own icons, downloading music, saving fic to your hard drive instead of on paper... you'll be addicted to your new toy in no time.

Yay computer! I can't wait to see it! It's like the new baby in the family. My thinkpad has a cousin now!
