gimme some hardware

I never thought I'd think it, hope for it, say it or even admit it, but I am actually lusting after some new fruit!

I'm talking about the Apple Mac Pro Book Thingy. The new one that comes in white or black and has lots of power and memory and takes up so little space - as unlike me as anything'll ever get!

I have my trusty old Titanium, which is as old as my youngest daughter I think, 4 years. It has been dropped, the corner of the screen has come unhinged and must be opened with a special pinch on the bottom and every now and then it goes berserk, and yes, it leaks a small current of gentle, pulsating electricity which massages my wrists as I write. Good, yang energy, I say!

Though workable, it is so slow my applications quit when i try to move too quickly. It's good for writing and a little bit of surfing, but come storage time and cut and paste, woah! stand back and watch the apps buck like little bucking apps...

So, if someone is listening out there (do I hear hubby boo ignoring me?), just know that I never really go for the big ticket items, I'm more of a magazine-a-week kind of shopper, and sometimes indulge in some extraneous stationery. Oh, and if the weather is funny I may go a little overboard with the 30 ringgit shoes but I still keep the kids' food budget intact and try not to lose electricity supply.

Been singing Cinderella's theme song with the girls: "A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you're fast asleep..."

Hope I dream of apples tonight.

Lovey, C
