Number 5 is alive 

So the last time I was in the States I bought myself a laptop. That was a year and a half ago. I toiled over which laptop to buy for quite a while. I shopped online during the dead hours at the office. I went into stores and ogled the portable computers like there was no tomorrow. I pondered and I compared and I shopped. In the end I bought a laptop that was highly portable, stylishly small, somewhat unimpressive in the technology department, and has a brilliant screen, but what the decision really came down to was one that I just liked the look and feel of. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles. I'm a pretty easy girl for things like that. So what I ended up with was something that could in no way disappoint.

Long story short - you can have a kitten dump a glass of water on my laptop and after a week of no sign of life from the machine, it can come back from the dead.

Fortunately, or sadly depending on your take, the laptop I was eyeing to buy as a replacement is not yet needed. My bank account can thank me later.

In other news, I've been missing writing lately. So, if you know me, pretend like you never read anything in this place and I'll pretend like you aren't reading. Well, I can try to fake it to some extent. But for now, as it's some god awful hour of morning, I'll jot down some notes for stories for later and try to get back to them before the end of the year.
