Mama's Gotta Brand New Bag
See Robin. See Robin smile. See Robin smile very big.

From ear to ear. From here to there. She is smilin'
e v e r y w h e r e :)!

"Why?" you ask.

Have new laptop. Will travel. Blog and go.

Endless possibilities. Wi-freakin'-Fi. Vistas ready (I didn't even know a new? upgraded? operating system was just months away).

The Geek Squad at Best Buy was trying to razzle dazzle the ol' pensieve and confuse all those swirling thoughts of mine, but all I know is, they know more than me, they are MORE than happy to answer my gazillion questions, and if they fail, there's always Willowtree;).

I like geeks.

Can't wait to pick up my favorite toy. You'll have to tell me how it looks:).

Congrats Robin!

I love refreshing my laptops at least once a year and tend to do so more like twice a year. These days my flavor is the new MacBook Pro. I've been using Macs for years, but all of my development work tends to be Linux based. So, I've often had to use a number of systems and laptops to get all of my work done. Now I'm able to do all I do on a single machine.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your new toy. Should make for a happy blogging experience.

I'm so envious! I know first-hand what a pain-in-the-rear airport internet kiosks are.

I want one too!!!

Cool! Those darn Geek Squad guys, they sure know how to sweet talk a blogger, LOL! I cant wait to see what you got.

BTW, are you calling WT a geek? *snort* I just remembered...My husband called me a geek this week. Bah! He works in IT at a hospital, do you think it was meant as acompliment?

Love your new blog, it's got me itchin' for a new one. Plus I want some coffee now, too. I am glad you kept your signature foot pic :O)

Boy oh boy! It's the "Week of Robin"! New template, new computer - you're on a roll, woman!

I misread at first "a brand new brag!"

(waiting to see if WT responds to the Geek comment)

and a brand new Geek blessing to ya

"May you find Wi-Fi where ever you go!"

Good for you - I have a laptop but it stays warm and cozy here at home. She is afraid of large crowds. :)

Have fun blogging on the gi-zo!

I love geeks too. I actually pride myself on being a geek. Because of that I will have to ask you some geeky questions:

1. What kind of laptop did you purchase?

2. Please provide specs (HD, RAM, Video card) Tell me to shut up if you don't know what that is. If you do know what that is, then Welcome to Geekdom.

3. Comment, not a question.. Loving the new blog. It's nice over here.

Yum! I got my new laptop - not only my first brand new computer, not hand-me-down, but my first laptop - and am still in love. Sigh.

WOW - You are one LUCKY gal this week, arn't you? What's next? Some shoes for those bare tootsies?

At October 07, 2006, Blogger willowtree said...

Thank you MJ for asking those questions, it saves me some keystrokes.

I'd like to know in what way is it Vista ready? What architectural changes have have been made. Is PCI still going to be the standard buss?

Now, just one more question: Who the hell are you to call me a geek? You're the one doing the Snoopy dance with a laptop in one paw and a pimped up blog in the other!

Don't think I didn't notice all that shameless bling in your sidebar.

Laptops are great and I am sure you will love yours. It is always tough to switch things over... I hate that part. Have a great weekend!

At October 08, 2006, Blogger willowtree said...

Oh yeah, I was that busy playing around I forgot to congratulate you on getting a new laptop. I hope you have a long and trouble free relationship.

Do you know how to transfer your data, or are you having that done for you?

Congrats to the new laptop, girl. I just got one too - from hubby, but working still on my stationary PC...until I have much of my stuff over on the laptop...Have a great time where ever you are going.

My Photo Name:


Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often) to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...

For the complete explanation, see
