A "Mac-tacular" Christmas!

I am sure you all can already tell the difference, but for those of you who can't - I got a Macbook for Christmas!!!!!

I am so very, very excited!  My former laptop has been on its last leg for years.  Pretty much since we got it, actually.  Without criticizing any computer maker in particular, it stunk from the get go.  I got a laptop because I had visions of me sitting at Starbucks, drinking a decaf mocha, and blogging all my deep and introspective thoughts for you all.  Alas, the battery never (and I do mean NEVER) held a charge and the only time I ventured out with it I about strangled Aly with the cordage.  At Panera.  Not my vision at all.

But now!  Oh!  The dreaming begins again!  

Of course, the downside is that I have absolutely NO idea how to work a Mac.  They say (and by "they" I mean most everyone I have ever spoken with) that a Mac is so much easier to operate than a PC.  But I here confess openly - I am computer challenged.   Severely.  I thought the power cord was a mouse.  Yikes.  

But I will press on joyfully.  I know I have lots of learning to do, but merely having a Macbook sitting here on my lap makes me feel a little cooler.  And when you're me, you'll take all the extra cool you can get!
