So here’s the thing.
The staff here at Big Mama, Inc. are currently upgrading to a new system. By which I mean that I broke down and bought a new computer yesterday. It was something that has needed to happen for a long time and I could no longer ignore the random pieces of plastic that would go flying across the room every time I opened my Macbook up or the fact that my “B” key made the decision to retire about a week ago.
I gave him a gold watch for his years of faithful service.
And so I walked in the Apple store expecting to walk out with a new computer. But that didn’t happen because I needed them to transfer important data from my old computer to my new computer. Specifically, Taylor Swift’s new album.
Apparently the data transfer took the better part of the afternoon and, by the time they called to tell me it was ready, it was already dark (CURSE YOU DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME) and I felt it probably wouldn’t be the safest move to go to the mall by myself after dark because I am now eighty-five years old and worried someone might try to mug me and run off with my genuine leather handbag before I could make it safely to my Cadillac with a box of Kleenex in the back window.
And since I have no laptop as of this moment, I’m typing this post on our desktop computer which is fine and lovely. However, it is not in front of my T.V. and doesn’t allow me the luxury of sitting on my couch while I write a post. And, frankly, those two components are the only reason I’ve managed to blog for the last six and a half years. Otherwise, I’d have called it a day back in 2007.
But I’ll get my new computer complete with transferred data in the morning. And then I can write a Fashion Friday post that will be complete with a giveaway. So HOORAY FOR THAT.
In the meantime, there is a group of Compassion Bloggers in Peru right now. You absolutely need to go read Love Moves by Angie Smith. And I know Angie would appreciate our prayers for her nine-year-old twin girls that are with her on this trip.
I also liked this post by Kevin and Layla at The Lettered Cottage.
See y’all tomorrow.
