November 28 07

my laptop died in Montreal. died. as in dead. big blue screen of death, to be precise. she was good to me. she was old, and slow, but i loved her all the same. she wasn’t a fancy macbook (*drool*) and she didn’t even have herself a cd-drive. but she was old school cool. when she got sick a couple months back i was devastated…but we got her back up and running again. and now she’s gone. left in a hotel garbage can.

the silver lining here is that i will have to get a new laptop.

but fuck me…the husband thinks i can wait until boxing day to get one. boxing day is a month away, minus a day. has he gone batty? shall i expect a jump-the-couch incident? or a Britney-shaving party (head shaving, sickos!)? How on earth can i live an entire month without a laptop? how can i be a lazy-ass and lie in bed and watch the Tudors (mmmm….the Tudors) and blog at the same time?

while we are cursing about my lack of laptop, let’s focus on something else shall we…like her lack of hair??

ahahaha. her hair is out of control, folks. it’s so wispy. by the time Emily was 2, she had hair. hair i could put up in a pony. hair i could actually brush. (apparently, she also had beer)

(this is what happens when i have to spend my evening using the desktop…i start going through the old pictures….even though the Tudors are calling. and Gossip Girl – whatever, like you don’t watch it. And House. but oh-my-freaking-lord my kids were cute)

but you want to know what wasn’t cute? my WEDDING pictures. (now you know i really love you because i’m letting you see this)

where do we even begin with the picture? my baby brother’s Tootie haircut? the YELLOW flowers? the fact that i lost too much weight that my wedding dress didn’t even fit me? the yellow flowers?!!?! me with short brown hair?

just for the record…this was 1998. we were HOT back then. also….let it be known…i totally rocked the hairband back then…way before it came back into style. i was AHEAD of the curve, i tell you. ahead!

(ps. let the record show that i’m now searching for a recent picture of me with my siblings. i wouldn’t want you to think i’m an evil sister who only posts terrible photos of her brother and sister. the only one of my siblings who is NOT going to murder me is the one not pictured in here – Hi Jon! i can’t find a recent photo. none. none at all. and i totally would keep looking…but, um, well, Jonathan Rhys Meyers….mmmm….i promise i’ll find one later. i swear. seriously. i do.)

(pps. i hope the husband sees this is runs out and gets me a laptop…before i start posting horrific pictures of him!!!)

new post up at Fabulous…come on over and see why you should never make light of another mom’s vomiting child…karma’s certainly a bitch…

  1. You look so different from your wedding picture I wouldn’t even have guessed it was you if you hadn’t said so! And not in a bad way. Just very different. But way to rock that headband!

  2. I think you look so pretty! Do NOT wait for Boxing Day to get a laptop…places like futureshop and best buy will have fabulous deals but only 3-5 of the sale laptops per store (and not even all stores will carry all of the deals). buy it now and you can have the price guaranteed or price match later.

  3. It’s funny… I know you’ve said to MTM that you love the munchkin’s hair, but I feel like it’s not that long or full when I see kids like Mia (Chris and Beth’s daughter)… I think the grass is always greener.

    Re: laptop… just a thought, but could you not leverage the boxing day deal into something better (i.e. “if I buy now, I can get a 15” for $XXX but for the same $XXX on boxing day I can get a 21″… either you get the smaller one now, or the better one at boxing day.

    Just thinkin’…

  4. I feel your pain…only it’s my ONLY computer that crashed. Over 3 weeks ago. And there’s no new one in sight for me! I keep sneaking up to my parents’ house to check email and blogs.

    I would tell the husband I’d wait until Boxing Day if, and only IF, it meant I got the fancy MacBook! haha

  5. Oh no…the blue screen, I hate it! A new laptop *swoon*, I will be jealous!

  6. I’m wondering if I can be good enough in the next month for Santa to bring me a laptop. And I’m right with you on the Tudors. Mmmmmm, JRM. Drool.

  7. my laptop crashed last weekend (Dell latitude .. old), blue screen of death – brought it into work .. the guy here fixed it (ran chkdisk and it fixed it…) .. hope it was really old cause you could have probably got it up and running again just t’il Christmas..

  10. And here I thought you only blogged on company time. My bad. (tee hee)

    My thoughts are with you during your time of loss.

    LOVE the mini keg pic!!

  11. Well aren’t you just a vision in white? LOL Love the pics! Sorry about your laptop. I’ll pour one out for dat homie later!

  12. Ouch. I feel the laptop pain. I would be completely bereft and unable to function if I had to wait a month. Then again, we don’t have a desktop at all in our house anymore. Go forth and buy ye a macbook!

    (Oh, and I saw a comment elsewhere. Please tell me you’re still going to talk about Philip Pullman this week. Would love the insider perspective!)

  13. boxing day is a month away, minus a day.

    you’re a poet and you don’t know it

    well i guess you do now :]

  14. the adorableness of your children… it overwhelms me. (pop quiz! what movie is this quote from? no googling! “i know you can be overwhelmed, and you can underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?… i think you can in Europe…)

    i wish we called christmas boxing day here. boxing day sounds so much cooler. but then my birthday would only be one day after instead of two… and with a birthday that close to christmas… i’ll take all the days i can get. 🙂

  15. I think you were a lovely – and startlingly demure – bride. I’ve seen one too many hoochie looking brides recently, so I’m so charmed right now.
    The Baby has a LOT of hair – LOTS. It is NOT the blessing you might imagine.

  16. Aren’t husbands party poopers sometimes?? They just don’t understand. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  17. I actually have a laptop for sale. It’s refurbed, but beautiful. We bought two thinking I would go hog wild working for John, then I got a job. Now we don’t need it.

    Second, my wedding pictures are good, but the flowers. What the hell was I thinking? White roses are so not me. I loved my dress though. It was a Justina McAffrey! Unlike you though, I didn’t lose weight, I gained it. 18 weeks pregnant worth (oops!)

    Comment by Chantal on November 28, 2007
  18. Oh, lord; I am OBSESSED with Gossip Girl. It’s sad, really.

    Also, you are too cute in your wedding picture.

    (PS: I’m still giggling at your classification of your brother’s hairstyle as the “Tootie.”)

  19. My 2 year old has even less hair, I can’t even do pigtails with it yet. I can’t wait to do something besides a tiny barrette to keep the bangs out of her eyes.

  20. (((your laptop)))

    If I didn’t know it was you in that wedding picture I don’t think I’d have recognized you…you look completely different now.

    Comment by mamatulip on November 29, 2007
  21. My thoughts and sympathies are with your laptop. How about he gets you the laptop NOW and you agree not to pay the credit card bill until Boxing Day.

    My daughter broke the hinge on my laptop…it took every ounce of restraint to not throttle her. But now their desktop won’t start up…so I’m back on the phone with Apple trying to see what we are going to do about that.

    Maybe there’s just some bad Mac karma going on right now!

  22. I can’t believe how WEE you guys were at your wedding! CRAZY! And, I love Isabella’s hair!! It’s ADORABLE!!! 🙂 Hope the Gib comes to his senses and gets you a laptop pronto!!! You deserve it! And, that sewing machine thingy…. Also — the Tudors? wha? And, no, I don’t watch Gossip Girls!!!

  23. I think you’re pretty in late 90’s wedding. And I actually really like your hair that dark.

    I got my laptop a few months ago at Costco on their credit card deal. Sign up for a credit card, buy something expensive and don’t pay a penny for six months. Four months of overtime and I’d paid it all off before they even wanted any money. Plus you get three months to return it, no questions asked.

    Wow! How old were you when you got married? You look SO young–not that you look old now, cuz you certainly don’t!
