Mamacita says: I am writing this on my new Gateway laptop. Thank you, oh Credit Card Gods, that there was enough room on you for this purchase!
My old desktop computer is still in Safe Mode, which is actually good for not-too-much, and I will leave it that way until my son, the computer guru, comes home and says “Sure, Mom” when I ask him to tinker with it and try to make it behave itself as a proper computer should, ie do what I tell it. You know, like the children always did. Stop laughing!
Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. I’ve been married longer than many of you have been alive. To remember how long I’ve been married, I have to think of our daughter’s age and add a year and a half. That’s EIGHTEEN months, for those of you who are counting on your fingers.
People always used to figure up the months between the wedding and the birth, to see if the couple had any self-control. I don’t imagine it’s done all that much these days, because nobody seems to have any.
Self control, I mean. They’re still having babies, and often the day after the wedding, if indeed there is any wedding at all. I’m glad they don’t still stamp “illegitimate” on birth certificates any more; it’s not the baby’s fault. And most people these days don’t even know what the legal definition of ‘bastard’ is. Ultimately, it’s nobody else’s business.
Where did that topic come from, anyway? I am the Queen of Tangents.
And, I have a Gateway laptop. So far, so good.
It’s navy blue. His name is Hal.
I love him.
