there is a new baby in my life
i got the call this morning, while i was stuck in JapPol. so this afternoon, after alex came home from class, i made him drive me to 60th and Kimbark, where we proceeded into the deep dark bowels of the New Graduate Student Housing, and...
picked up my new 12" Powerbook!!!
i'm excited. got her all set up in my room already (typing out this post on her as we figuratively speak), MS Office installed and all requisite messaging programs going strong. i love it already, despite it being heavier than i expected. it's about the same weight, if not slightly heavier, than the iBook (although that is already miles lighter than my Dell brick, which has been almost certainly permanently retired -i probably have to pull some old files off of it soon, but otherwise it is ready to be wiped and donated) but it looks so much cooler. and it's MINE -no sharing with the brother- how sweet is that?
photos, as promised to one Adr, soon. after midterms, when i have had the dinner party i promised mike. :) perhaps i will bake her a cake, if i can come up with a good name. am leaning, as per suggestions, toward a shakespearean name, but have already heard objections to my two favourites: Lady MacBeth, and Ophelia. any other (obscure) suggestions, anyone? -looks plaintively in Gail's direction-
