This week's news

I didn't work with my pupil ( ew- I can't call him that- um...let's go with student) a whole lot this week due to the fact that I had to do some training for the agency, and also had a meeting with his teachers. So it's been a pretty busy week, driving hither and yon - although I did end up with Wednesday off so I could do all manner of useful things, like have the oil changed in my car and catch up on laundry etc. It was a good day. I'm sure you are all thrilled to know this.

Brad had the week off as he is between jobs. He rearranged/organized the office, among other noble chores. It was so nice to have him home but I don't think he enjoyed it very much; he is as antsy as caffeinated toddler, wanting to get started in his new world. I don't blame him one bit. He starts on Monday.

This morning, the doorbell rang, awaking me from my traditional Saturday morning late slumbering and it was FedEx, delivering the new computer. After about a month of sharing the laptop, we are back to the spoiled life of each having our own computer. It makes such a huge difference - almost as much as going from a one sink bathroom to a bathroom with his and hers sinks. Niiiiice.

Brad says he has gone over to the dark side: he got a Mac. Oooo! Oooo! Not being a computer wizard, I don't really know a whole lot about the difference - except that apparently, Macs are cooler, younger, hipper, slimmer, and more versatile whereas PC's are ever so nerdy, portly, stuffy, fragile, and high maintenance - at least according to the Mac ads. All I have to say is: Whatever, Trevor. I'm just happy to have something with a screen, a keyboard and DSL that works. But seeing as how the Mac has more video/picture capabilities, perhaps we might see more video blogs in the future. Who knows...

Macs are better, but PC's have a more universal stranglehold on the market :-)

Maybe when I'm rich someday I too shall go to the darkside...

Claire--you're right--pupil is just not a word for you...YOu rule, Brad-Mac's are the best. Okay Trevor...

Stronger, the dark side is not!!

No!

Quicker, easier, more seductive it is!

Resist its blandishments you must!!

(Or be forced to bust a cap in you I shall!)

YAY!!!! Welcome to Macdom, Brad! That is truly exciting. :) I don't know what we'd do without multiple (Apple) computers. It's almost as important as having separate areas in the closet and yes, the blessed 2 sinks. :)

The caffeinated toddler bit made me laugh...wonderful imagery. :)

And I hate the word pupil...sounds too much like a life stage of an insect.

I wouldn't worry too much Claire. That is unless he starts calling it 'His Precious'

Is Brad liking his Mac? I'm thinking about switching to the dark side, also. ;-)I just wonder if I'll miss anything about Windows.
