Mac the Book…

There’s someone I’d like you to meet. I can thank my good buddies at tech support, faux-James and faux-Jordan, for her appearance in my life. If they hadn’t terrified me about another impending computer- pocalypse, I probably wouldn’t have spent the next week waking up in a cold sweat and running down two flights of stairs to check on Huey.

It was time to get a Mac.

So I’d like to introduce you to my birthday MacBook.*

I decided to use a name from my someday-daughters-list to name her, because St. Matt has issued a double-thumbs-down-veto on this one anyway.

So, meet Dulcinea.

St.Matt pronounces it: Dull-sin-neigh-ah
I say: Dull-sin-knee-ah
Both are correct.

We’ll call her Lucie for short.

And Lucie is fabulous! Besides being adorably decked out in a pink&green skin that I designed myself (I am far too proud about this), she WORKS!

Unlike Huey, Lucie will communicate with our wireless printer. I’ve been printing things Just Because. So… if you want some puggle pictures, let me know. Lucie also has a “SuperDrive.” On Huey it’s just a CD/DVD drive, but on Lucie, it’s SUPER.

Did I mention she comes with a remote control? I love remote controls! St.Matt’s first Mp3 player had one and I was ridiculously jealous. Never mind that he repeatedly pointed out mine was waterproof a much more practical feature, and that he didn’t need a remote because the Mp3 player was strapped to his arm. I still wanted one.

And Lucie has one! I don’t know what I’ll do with it, but still… I have one.

If I disappear into a cloud of Laptop-Love full of unicorns and rainbows, I know you’ll understand. (Yes, I’m quite sure that Lucie will be a new Distraction Fairy).

… Or maybe because I’m so infatuated with Lucie, my blog explode with posts…. Er, and they won’t all be about lame-o things like how I learned to print and my so-far-just-fun-to-look-at remote control.


*Whenever I say MacBook, I want to sing Mack the Knife. Does this happen to everyone, or just me?

  1. Hi 🙂
    Thanks for a fun blog post.
    What a great birthday present.
    Lucie looks great.
    When I saw the pic, my first thought was, Wow, Mac is awesome doing their laptops up like that. Then you said you DID IT YOURSELF.
    You are full of awesome!
    Wishing you and yours all the best,

  2. Irish – Thanks! St.Matt is mocking my level of pride at skin creatorship, but I think it might be my next calling. Also, yes, Lucie is an odd derivation from Dulcinea, but it’s ME.

    Andrea – It’s an Emerson! All my favorite quotes are by him 🙂

    VY – Hey, no mocking Dulcinea. I love the name! (Thou, St.Matt makes a valid point that it should be shortened to Dulcie… that can be nickname #2).
