It's Friday...!

Just when I think I cannot haul my ass carcass body into work one more day, that most magic of all creations comes along, namely, Friday. This first week back after the Christmas holiday season has been particularly exhausting. We now have a full complement of nutcases staff back at work once again.

*sigh*

Everyone is more relaxed on Fridays, people are looking forward to the weekend, and things that might have been enormously serious on Mondays are now just tiny blips on the radar screen. I may even take in some chocolates, just to sweeten everyone up.

I have something to look forward to as well. Tonight I will be receiving - ta-da - my new computer! Yes I will! I can hardly wait. I can't imagine what it will be like to use a computer that actually works, and actually has a USB port. Don't laugh. The computer I have now was the original computer used to guide the Mayflower from Southampton, England to the colony of Plymouth. So this weekend I will be learning all the bells and whistles of my new computer. Be prepared to be amazed at what I can do!

Have a great weekend, everyone.

NB: My site statistics on my boring-little-blog went off the chart today, and I noticed I have been chosen a "Blog of Note". Goodness! Moi? Well, the great thing is that I get to meet all you new folks, and I am looking forward to visiting you.

Haha! Perhaps you could sell your computer to the Smithsonian and then use the proceeds to finance the purchase of a new one.

Congrats on being a Blog of Note, by the way!

It's hard to get back into the swing of things after a long holiday break. Chocolate sounds like the perfect remedy!

Enjoy your new computer! Before I got my new one, I used to say that my old one came over on the ark with Noah!

Happy Friday!

There is nothing better than getting a new computer. I always buy Dell and with that said, my computers last forever. Truth! I had a desktop that was used for a good 7 years. It was still working when I sold it for $250!
Have fun this weekend with your USB ports...
