Ahhh...

I feel relief.

This is me tonight from my brand new laptop computer. I'm sorry to disappoint all the Mac people out there. I like Macs a lot, but because of the already expensive software we use for our architecture work and its compatibility, we had to stick with a PC for now. I'm excited to have a computer at home now. This is the first post I'm doing from it and I hope it is just what this blog needs to rescue it from its lackluster quality as of late. Thankfully, the computer guy who helps us out was able to salvage the files from the ailing desktop, so I can breathe a little knowing I don't have to fuck around trying to reacquire all my music, photos, and videos. It's been a tense few days and a testament to how reliant I am on my computer.

Tonight has been a nice break from all the tension. First, Megan and I watched the season finale of Beauty And The Geek. The show is a nice mix of people showing genuine human kindness and reality-show cheesiness and conflict. The finale was no exception. I know some of you may consider the fact that I watch something like this a character flaw, but I make no apologies. Those of you who read my list of TV shows know that I'm beyond hope anyway.

Then I sat down at the computer to find that Megan had changed my desktop to this:

Probably because earlier I had shown her a recent gem of a post at The Idea Of Progress that implies that Winnie The Pooh is preparing food with feces in it.

Then I saw my brother pop up on my IM thing. He has a webcam and now I do, too. It was a good chance to make stupid faces at each other:



I know I haven't been leaving a lot of comments under your blog-trees lately, but I am reading all of it. Hopefully now that I have this baby, I'll be more in the loop. You guys make my day!

Dude, Winnie The Pooh on your desktop or not, she likes German food, beer, and facial hair...














marry her!

I LOVE Beauty and the Geek and am so happy that Dave and Jasmine won. Sam was a flippen douche...

The real winners though were Shea and Josh. I loved, loved, loved them!

Pooh looks great on your computer... and the faces are classic.

Chris said...

Marni- Josh and Shea were faves at our house, too.

I think that writeprocrastinator might have the right idea.

Good to have you back.

Beauty and the Geek is one of the best guilty pleasure shows out there. I haven't been this season because I missed the first couple of episodes. yeah.

You are very brave to share your funny faces.

Laptops are the greatest. I'm glad you've resolved your computer woes!

I used to have a web cam, but my suspect hygiene caused the government to step in and order it removed.

Grant Miller said...

So how long before you were nude in front of your web cam?

I'm so glad I voted for you in Grant's awards for the most pictures of yourself on your blog category!

As someone who sometimes gets a paycheck for work done on behalf of a certain rather large software company based near Seattle, I thank you for purchasing a PC and helping me keep my juicy contract (and paycheck).

Whenever we get a weenie waver who's only wearing a shirt we refer to it as "doing a pooh bear"

Ms. Laaw-yuhr said...

The facial expressions are priceless!

Zed said...

I love the funny faces you made--your brother was probably cracking up on the other end of the web cam.

And I agree with those who are encouraging you to marry Megan. Let's get this show on the road, people! :)

Is your laptop a "Ferrari"? (does have a lot power?)Sometimes the laptops are faster and more fun to "drive" than the desktops!

'Bubbles' said...

The pictures would have been better on a mac.


Just kidding. I bought two pc laptops on Black Friday in an effort to stop the constant wars around here.

Did you get XP? That's my only concern. I never hear about how great Vista is, and the laptops came with Vista.

OMG... I'm such a geek.

BTW, NO ONE has been "invited" to my blog yet. I'm trying to figure out a solution to a problem... so I "turned it off", sort of. Please come back and check in - I'll be back!!

I've been so sick for the last 2 weeks that I've been going to bed every night by 8 at the latest. I'm so sad to have missed the finale of Beauty and the Geek. I hope pretty boy and his geek girl didn't win...I liked Jasmine and the larper dude.

BeckEye said...

Ah! I see in comments that Jasmine and Dave did win. Yay!
