It’s rare that I do the ‘WP Daily Prompt‘, even though I get them in my email. Today’s prompt spoke to me … all because of my latest purchase; the MacBook. In the WP post they asked «Tell us about the last thing you got excited about — butterflies-in-the-stomach, giggling, can’t-wait excited. » Well, in my case that was just a few days ago … when I’d made the decision to buy it. At my ripe age, I still get excited about things, and usually about the small things in life — I’m such a child at heart. A new computer is no little thing, however, so I had all the good reasons to be excited and happy.
It’s a bit like moving house … moving in to a new home or apartment … moving your stuff in, getting everything to your liking! I find that it tend to take longer each time. This time was of course a bigger deal, as I switched from Windows to Mac. During the set-up process, you’re always asked to name it something … and it struck me that all our computers have had male names! This one is now named Hadassah, after my first cat. The screen background really fits, because she was a Persian Blue.
This whole thing has certainly had its obstacles — I had a hard time connecting the external hard drive to both our computers — my husband’s being Windows, but it’s done now. It feels as if the biggest challenge is the oh so «Magic Mouse». Sure takes some time getting used to! I was pleasantly surprised that I could download both Google Chrome browser and Picasa. The latter took some strain off my mind and for now I can go on doing my photo processing as usual.
