This week I did something unthinkable - for me - I purchased a PC laptop. It's an HP, it's blue (it's actually kinda pretty - I like shiny things), it's Vista, it's Office 2007. I actually kinda like it. But don't tell anybody that, because it's unthinkable - for me - to like such a thing as a PC. I have run Macs since I was 8 years old. I'm typing on a Mac right now. But necessity has driven me to it. So add it to the list of things I've caved on and pray for me.

I am thankful for the kind - only laughing at me behind my back - support I have received from my anti-Mac friends as I struggle through this transition.

I named my laptop BOB. Maybe someday B.O.B. will stand for something, but for now, I just really wanted t0 name it anything but "Carey's PC" - *scream* - that's just going to far - so I named it BOB. It wasn't until today that I typed the name and decided it should be in all caps. I know, I'm strange, what can I say? I'm a Mac girl. Strange fits.

I can be very honest.
I love fully.
I trust my friends.
I can be mean but rarely on purpose.

I am lovely.
I am me.

What if...

This morning I was toying with this idea: what if everyone got into the voting booth and couldn't vote for McCain OR Obama? So at random we all picked the same man and he rose to power with the support of 100% of the country...yipes. Silly idea, but I enjoyed toying with it. It's a good plot for a bad movie :o)

Then when I voted this morning I was looking at all the names and parties that are running for president (had no clue there were SO MANY), and saw a man and his running mate with "Boston Tea" listed as their party affiliation. Naturally my brain immediately put it together - they are from the "Boston Tea Party" (a political party that does exist, actually, it was created in 2006). I had a nice chuckle.

On my walk home from voting, I thought it so clever I decided he would be the one to rise out of the rubble of everyone's confidence crushing beneath the pressure to vote for one of two parties - a battle that has brought more division to our nation in the past year than we could ever have desired. Because when our pens stayed and the bubbles next to those two remained empty and we looked desperately for another choice we might just think that a party that can be so clever might have something to offer. Of course we'd probably be wrong.

Good thing this life is only temporary and that my imagination doesn't create reality.

List of things I've caved on since I started my current job:
  • this blog
  • Harry Potter
  • LOST
  • facebook
What's next? Hm? Skiing? Driving in the mountains in the snow?? Eating sushi? WAIT, I've done that! AH! Stop the madness!

Morning People

What an eye-opening experience. I always knew I was not a morning person, but didn't realize how bad my case was until this morning when I was at B&N. The man who made my coffee was genuinely awake, pleasant and attentive. I was with one of my high school girls and quite happy but still did not feel as chipper as he looked.

I would like to commend those morning people I encountered this morning - to you at the Barnes and Noble Cafe, Mardels and Babies R Us - may you be blessed for your genuine smiles and heartfelt joy!
