Laptop!

I have achieved laptop! Many thanks to mattbin.

The new-to-me laptop is, as he warned me, not without its quirks, most notably the wrong kind of backlight for the screen. This means that the screen takes a little longer to warm up properly and that the edges are darker. Or, if you look at it in a different way, when I write it makes it seem like my words are surrounded by a halo of light. (However, the choir of angels singing as I type is, sadly, only in my head.)

Just happy to be of... well, whatever it is I've been.

Of.

Also, way to spin the halo of light and whatnot.

Perhaps I have a career awaiting me in marketing.

Woot! Excellent thing to have a working laptop. ... So, when's the next writing excursion? :-)

Hmm, I don't know yet. I'm much better at naming cars than I am laptops.

Cars have far more personality, I think. It never occurred to me to name my computer, but the second my car became My Car, she was Milady Buick.
