What I did on the weekend, by Tracey

When your dear other half says to you, let’s go shopping, don’t ever say no. Especially if he is one of that common breed of man, a non-shopper.

So Saturday, we shopped. At Bunnings (that’s a big hardware store). Not exactly my idea of fun, but oh well. What did we come home with? An outdoor vacuum, and a new clothes airer. I know, I could hardly contain my enthusiasm either.

Sunday was much better. It is well documented here that the boy provides me with a cup of coffee on bed on the weekends. Lately he has been bringing me my iPhone as well, so I can catch up on emails before I get out of bed (how very decadent). This weekend I decided I would use my laptop to read emails, it’s just easier. Only tragedy struck. My faithful Sony Vaio, which I’ve had for quite some years now, is misbehaving. The battery is runing out after half an hour, sometimes it connects to the wireless internet but mostly not, the operating system is slow… you can see where this is going.

Sunday afternoon I had me an adventure to the Apple store. I love to go there. I love it even more when I am allowed to actually shop there. I returned home with a MacBook Air, and Apple TV. It took me approximately 68 seconds to set up the Air. The boy spent a bit more time setting up Apple TV, but he did completely restructure the media equipment while he was at it. I seriously want to marry Steve Jobs, even if he is sick and dying.

I did have to promise not to buy any shoes for a while. I think I can live with it.

    Ooh, I want a MacBook Air, too. My laptop is going to be bequeathed to the kids and we're eyeing off the Macs (despite only ever having PCs). They're just so darn purdy, aren't they?

    Now that's a great way to spend a Sunday. Congrats.

    WHAT? No new shoes? Did he define how long "a while" is? LOL!

    How marvelous! My laptop is a Dell, and it's about 8 years old if it's a day.

    So cool! I see Snow Leopard is releasing Friday. Do you get a free upgrade? I guess it's just $30 if not.

    Let me know how you like the Apple TV. We've been thinking about doing a Mac Mini home theater thing because it seems like you can do more if you have full computer capabilities. We've been experimenting with things using our laptops.

    Very nice shopping spree! Of course this means that we both have iMacs and laptops… of course 🙂
