Fitter, happier, more productive.

I found out at work today that apparently the lease is up on my old 12" Powerbook so it had to be replaced.

With a dope-ass 15" MacBook Pro!

It is super sweet. It's way thinner, is noticably faster with the Intel core-duo processor, it has an iSight camera, and one of those cool little magnetic power cords. Bill our Mac guy was even kind enough to transfer my 14 gigs of music over for me too. Surely that's not a proper use of company materials. But a writer's gotta write, right? What am I gonna do, write in total silence? I should be expensing music purchases as work related if anything. Besides, the rest is all word files and my book.

Of course now this new computer is making me think mine (which is still pretty dope) is kinda lacking. Check 'er out:

Speaking of leases, my apartment lease is up 3/4 and since I've got to give 60 days notice of intent to vacate, it looks I'm gonna be doing so in the next couple of days. Come hell or high water, I'm not staying here. Ideally I'll be somewhere west of here by then and it won't matter.

I know of a wonderful basement that looks like it will be opening up in brooklyn--that is, if you're in the market...

Yeah, it could be worse I suppose. I think I'm just sick of upstairs neighbors. But my electricity works like a dream. So there's that.

I just got my first laptop (17 inch. booya) and if it didn't risk its safety I would snuggle with it at night.
