I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! My husband and I had a holiday banquet on Saturday for The Order of the Arrow (Scouting stuff), and then on Sunday we went to Red Lobster for lunch with his mother. Oh, and on Saturday we took Powell out for his first walk on the leash. He was such a good boy! He stayed between us the whole time--he didn't tug on the leash or fight us at all! We were shocked, but pleased. All in all, it was a pretty relaxing weekend.
In other news, I received an early birthday present last week. My netbook, Pinky (so named because it is pink and because I adored Pinky & the Brain as a child...), has become so slow that I dread using it--not a good thing for a writer. Well, my husband decided to buy me a new laptop for my birthday (I turn 23 on December 21st)! It's much bigger and has a lot more storage, which I love. The computer can actually keep up with me when I type... Go figure! I'd post a picture of it but it's just a boring black HP laptop--nothing new there. Anyway, I forgot how much I love having a computer that can store all of my files and keep up with me. I had originally bought Pinky to use when I was in university, because lugging around a big laptop from class to class wasn't an option with my crappy arms, but lord how I missed the speed of a normal laptop. And in the two and a half years since I bought Pinky, the laptops have gotten even faster! Ahh, this writer is in laptop heaven right now ;)
So what did you guys do this weekend? Have you bought a new laptop recently? What type of computer do you use--are you a PC or a Mac person? Personally, I love my iPod, but for computers I'm PC and for my phone I'm Android.
