Back on the road.......

me and my fast-as-lightning new computer!


I'm in the fast lane!!!

Who knew a computer could go this fast?
There I was....living in the previous century, thinking my circa 1999 computer was fast enough....
I mean, it did everything I told it to do.....
It obeyed me when I told it to cut and paste or go to a website or check my bank balance....
It allowed me to blog and do emails and even look at pictures.
Sure, sometimes it took a few extra minutes to accomplish the tasks.
But, what's a few minutes between friends?
I was happy to wait for it to think a little or mosey a bit or rest for a few moments....
It did it's job.....
It might not have been the fastest little old computer on the block
It was leisurely......
It stopped to smell the daisies.
It paused to enjoy the moment.
But, it got the job done.
Sure, it was showing it's age.....some of the letters had worn off the keys.
But, I knew exactly which keys went with which letters.
And, it was a bit clunky.....some might say it was kinda fat....
Not nearly as sleek and rip-roaring as my new computer.....
And, I'll admit, it didn't fit very well on the desk....
But, I was used to my 1999 Aptiva and it's snug fit.
I was comfortable with it's purring noises and it's hard grindings when it trying to wake up.
And, I accepted the fact that it wouldn't load my pictures without some major effort.
As clunky and slow and underperforming as it was.....it was okay by me.

But, now that my new, sleeker, sassier version has arrived.....
I'm kicking that clunker to the curb......
It's a new day in Judiland!

Finally, my computer has caught up with me....
The sleeker, sassier version of me!

lol...enjoy...I think our home PC is about to bite the dust before long. IT's a DELL and has been a great one. But we gotta hold on as long as we can. COLLEGE coming up before long. We'll be eating beans and rice. lol

Isn't it amazing how fast those old computers become slow and dinosaurs?? I have a desktop that is 5 years old and it doesn't hold a candle to my laptop which is 3 years old. Maybe I need a new one too!!
