Finally back!!
3.24.2007

So, I bought a new computer...yeah, yeah...I know I didn't need one, exactly. But it's taking forever to get my iBook back and my PC is a piece of JUNK! It will only start up about once a week. Anyway, I decided if it had been one TV in the shop and the other one only turning on once a week, of course I would get a new one(reasoning with myself, you know) - so after my mom and I went to the mall and the bookstore today, we went to Best Buy and I got a new Toshiba laptop. If anyone has any horror stories about Toshiba's keep them to yourselves for a little while. It has Vista loaded on it and ask me how much I hate it...so much!!! It's like they took all the bad stuff about Windows and multiplied it! One good thing about the new laptop (I believe I shall call him Toshi), is that it is widescreen. I'm liking it!

In other news, I finally read Lover Revealed. I haven't read any of the reviews online (no computer, remember? - plus I didn't want spoilers). I liked it. I had wondered how she would keep Butch around and now I know. Not a big fan of Marissa, really. She was a bit boring and we didn't get to see much of her growth, etc. It was very much Butch's book and no one else's. I'm really glad V's book is next. ;-)

***ETA: So, I read a bunch of reviews and the biggest thing I learned?? Xhex is pronounced SEX! I was just reading it as X...you know, she has V and Z so why not? I would never have thought it might be pronounced Sex or Hex. Oh, and I agree with the people who gave it a B (in case you don't read the comments or read via a feed of some sort, etc.). :o)

I was wondering where you were - I thought an ibook was an e-reader. Yep, I'm hip ;)

Lucky you getting a brand new computer but I think I would lose a laptop at least twice a day!

Okay, now you can go read my review of Lover Revealed - me, not so happy.

Glad you're back!

Oh Cindy, an iBook is an e-reader and a whole lot more! :-D Does it help that they are called MacBooks now?? LOL

I read your review and lots of others (thanks to Sybil's roundup) - I think I agree with everyone that gave it a B. It wasn't my favorite so far but it still left me wanting the next book. What more can an author ask?

Ok, the people I ordered my laptop part from gave up. They can't find it. And guess what kind of laptop it was? TOSHIBA. LOL My one piece of advice is get a cooling tray to put the laptop on.

I had to buy a new computer too, but a desktop. :P

Ames - didn't I say to keep the horror stories to yourself for a while?! LOL

Our IT at work said that Toshiba was fine. There used to be an issue with proprietary parts but that it's getting better now.

Besides, this is just a fill in for my iBook. It doesn't have to do much. Yup, that's me...the queen of low expectations. ;-)

So what kind of desk top did you get? Does it do lots of cool stuff?

It's supposed to be the best kind of computer for photography, videos, any kind of digital media. I don't know. As long as I get on the internet, I'm fine. LOL
