Computing News

Fanfare trumpeters

The rumors are true. I have amazing news! (Drum roll) After hemming and hawwing, dilly-dallying, and doing other things that can be expressed with a pair of words that begin with the same letter, I have finally purchased a new laptop! Rejoice! It's the first one I've ever bought and, so far, it works like a charm! (I'll probably put it on that charm bracelet I've been meaning to buy.)

Now that I have my own computer, I will no longer have to bother my roommates to use their computers or go to the stinkin' library where gross people in sweatpants grease up the keyboards with their fingers and drool on the mouse. From now on, I will be doing the greasing up and drooling... on my own laptop! I'm such a grownup!

Why did you buy a computer, QMC?
-Freelance work in the TV industry often - if not always - requires a laptop computer.
-Creative writing. Mainly comedy sketches and bloggy bloggertons.
-Strong need to feel like a grownup.
-Impress my girlfriend.
-Had too much money lying around.
-Needed the warm yet heartless touch of something on my lap.
-Wanted to make a big purchase to spur the economy out of recession.
-If I didn't buy it, who would have? Some jerk? I may have just saved this laptop from a bad home.
-Felt like blogging about getting a new computer.

In closing, I'd like to set your mind a ponderin'... What brave new heights might I soar to now that I am fully equipped with a quality laptop? Stay tuned!
