does this keyboard make my hair look funny?

I am typing this on a beautiful new macbook. Don't I seem smarter and more attractive? ha! The newfangled keyboard and trackpad are going to take me a while to get accustomed to, I can tell you that much right now. I had the old ones broken in the way I like! Worn smooth! However, I am already accustomed to not having to wait one million years for anything involving video to load. My beloved old laptop was SEVEN YEARS OLD. It roamed the earth with the mastadon; it used to hunt pterodactyls uphill in the snow every winter! It had a noisy letter-skiping keyboard and no battery-life but, of course, I miss it even though it is sitting right over there (---->) on the edge of my desk. It was starting to make ominous clicking noises and refusing to burn CDs, so my sister made the sensible suggestion that instead of waiting for it to fail completely and resorting to desperate expensive measures to save all the data I have spectacularly failed to back up, I could get a new computer now and get everything moved over BEFORE the trouble starts. Done and done! (I was going to get a new computer in the next couple of months anyway, so it's not like I've been compulsively ordering diamond fingernails off the internet or other frivolous shopping.)

  1. Diamond fingernails? I wish! I hope that your newest purchase will last at least 7 years. That seems like an excellent amount of time to have one of those things.

  2. I know! I can't believe it was so long. I kept thinking "wow, I've had this thing for 4 years!" and then I realized I'd been thinking that for 3+ years. Anyway. The keyboard is freaking me out, but I'll get used to it hopefully sooner rather than later.

  3. I am sure in no time at all you will not even remember having problems.
