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 sheÃ‚Â got sickÃ‚Â 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 willÃ‚Â 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’sÃ‚Â 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 totallyÃ‚Â 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 neverÃ‚Â make light ofÃ‚Â another mom’s vomiting child…karma’s certainly a bitch…
