Buffy is Dead.
Yes, Buffy saved the world a lot. But sadly, my Buffy did not. She died only 2 years after I took her out of the box, all shiny and new, full of promises for a brilliant manuscript. She was a lovely laptop. Very hot headed and stubborn, but she got me through 2 years of writing my first book. Her ego is a little banged up, as well as her exterior. But she was faithful. Even during her temper tantrums of completely going black for no reason, she still saved my most important baby: my manuscript. She will be missed, but it really is for the good of humanity that she actually kicked the bucket. Because I was about 10 minutes away from killing her myself. But I totally loved her, I really did. Honest.
So now it's time for another hopefully more faithful and more powerful laptop to make her appearance:
Meet Buffybot, my new Macbook Pro. (if you are unfamiliar with the Buffy series, the Buffybot is a Robot Buffy that was made for Spike during season 5. Yeah, you just gotta watch it)
Yes folks, I woke up Monday morning to a bright and shiny new Macbook Pro sitting on my desk. I think Hubsters was sick of hearing me whine about my laptop. He was actually probably ready to shove 'ol Buffy down my throat.
And OMIGOSH I love it. But I have NO CLUE how to work it. I couldn't even figure out how to maximize my safari screen. But after hubs fiddled with it, we figured it out (you have to actually drag the box from the bottom corner to make it bigger- how cool is that?) (and OMG, she's SO quiet! She doesn't sound like a jet engine taking off like Buffy did!)
Anyway. I need tips, tricks-of-the-trade and any cool info you can give me about my new Macbook! All you mac lovers out there, please throw me a bone because I'm SO clueless.
And I totally need to apologize for being non-existent on blogs this week. I am working more than usual because of the snow days we had, and I'm playing with my new computer! I'll try to get caught up this week!
AND I want to say a big HELLO! to all my new followers! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the drivel!
