A Little Patience.

 

I remember it well.  The time: December 2010.  The place: My desk.

I wrote this letter to Santa referencing the above photo asking him for a new iPod.  Mine was old, out of date, and out of room for new music.  I didn’t complain, for I loved my iPod.  It went with me everywhere and jammed on the one.

But I felt I was due for an upgrade, so I asked.  We have not because we ask not, right?

Welp.

Santa left me hanging last Christmas.  I chalked it up to him being short-staffed.  Prolly laid off a few elves and, as a result, some of us fell through the cracks.

It’s cool.  I wasn’t bitter.  I just kept my lil’ iPod and kept on steppin.

Little did I know, Santa didn’t forget about me.  As I mentioned in my last post, Apple had a recall on my generation of iPods (circa 2005).  I sent mine back… and they sent me…

!!!

It got it in the mail on Tuesday.  Shout out to Apple for sending me this new Nano with no prompting and at no charge.  I am definitely a satisfied customer.

…But I know who’s really behind this.

*high fives Santa*

Ohhhh, you!

Shit My Dad Says.

Brownngirl’s Dad just joined Facebook last week.

This is a whole new world for him.

A few moments ago, Papa Brownngirl logs into his email & sees he’s got some new facebook friend requests.  Three of them from people he knew, and one he didn’t.  Here’s how that went.

So, what have we learned?

1.  “Too Juicy” is a dumb-azzed thing to call yourself for any reason.  Don’t do that.

2.  If you insist on calling yourself “Too Juicy” on any social media medium, don’t befriend my father.  It pisses him off.

Like Jesse Spano said…

“I’m so excited!!!!!”

Take a look around. Notice anything different? Go ahead. I’ll wait.

*waits*

Anything?

Okay, I’ll tell you.  Remember that post on my last blog about my laptop acting a complete and utter fool?

No?

Oh.

*awkward cough*

Welp, this post is special because it’s coming to you live & direct from my brand spanking new Macbook.  Eeeek!

Macbook

Yahp! I’m back in the world of a working computer. Oh, the things I can do now. My Last.fm has been collecting dust because I couldn’t really listen to media on my old one without it skipping. iTunes, Youtube, ANY videos, ANYTHING that had sound or movement was a nogo. But now, baby I’m back!

And I’m already in love.  Sorry PC. #kanyeshrug

I’m in the midst of transferring my pictures & music over, but I’m getting settled in nicely.

That built-in camera creeps me out a little bit though. I feel like, even though I’m not using it at the time, it’s still watching me.  Like, it’s some kind of portal for “the man” to keeps tabs.  [I can be a bit of a conspiracy theorist. Have you Google Earthed your house?!]

Okay, going to play some more on the new laptop.  OW!
