Shiny Rectangle

I am super excited!! I'm sure many people take it for granted, but I finally got my very first laptop!
It's beautiful, shiny silver and has an LCD screen! I'm in love.

I was sitting in the News Cafe, feeling all important with my laptop out. It was amusing though. There is only one power point so all laptop owners need to sit relatively close to each other. I was sitting amongst men clad in business suits, their Excel Spreadsheets open, cups of cuppaccino's, and Blackberry's suitably placed on the table. I felt like I should be receiving an important phone call where I could bark down the phone: "Sell it! No. I said sell! No you can't move my 3 billion dollars around. Invest!"
Instead, I sat downloading photo's and playing Spider Solitaire.

I went to watch some comedy last night! It was open mic with 2 headline acts. Some was excellent and some was just embarrassingly painful.
I felt so bad for some of the "comedians" but I couldn't even muster a sympathetic laugh for them. Still, at least they had the guts/balls to get up there in the first place. You wouldn't catch me doing Stand Up. Just cos my mom and friends think I'm funny, it doesn't mean I'm stand up funny! Ha!
Al Progers and Chris Forrest (2 amazing SA Comedians) were the headline acts and they were hysterical!

Tonight I'd like to veg! I'd like to get into my pajama's, drink wine and see if I can turn my eyes into squares from watching too much TV!
