My computer's story: he was born a poor black Dell...sorry, wrong tale. My first purchase as a newly-single woman was this HP...it has issues, doesn't always like to do what it's supposed to, but it's MINE and it doesn't track my whereabouts or tell on me when I've stayed up too late.
In February, I moved into my ex's house while he went to Iraq (so my son wouldn't have to change schools, blah, blah, blah). His office has his computer, bookshelves, etc. so I promptly took over the dining room. It is now my official READING ROOM (comfort is important in reading blogs). I bought a cheap computer armoire and a wireless router...so I open the doors and sink into my own little world. Bonus: I can eat and drink in there as much as I please.
