My late birthday present and early Christmas present arrived a day early today! It was supposed to arrive tomorrow, and I almost didn’t get it today because I wasn’t home when UPS attempted delivery. Shortly after I returned home, though, I received a personal phone call from my UPS driver. (We’re on a first name basis because, well, I generally hate shopping in-person. It was a little weird to get a personal phone call, but whatever.) He suggested that I go to the local UPS store at 5:30, his scheduled stop, and sign for it there–which is exactly what happened.
Ben and I got home about the same time and celebrated together. I affixed a permasmile on my face and he celebrated by taking photos, laughing at my excitement, and making tacos while I oooohed and aaaaaahed and started to set things up. I somehow managed to tear myself away long enough to eat dinner.
And now, after all the updates have been installed and the battery is fully charged, I’m still setting things up and getting used to the new OS. Some things are beautiful and wonderful, but some things are still very awkward. (I already miss the Delete button that erases letters in front of the cursor–didn’t realize how much I toggle between the PC’s Backspace and Delete.)
I’m connected to our home server, so I have delightfully convenient access to all of our MP3s and photos and other shared files on our database. I’m going to take my time transferring files from my PC so that they’re in a more streamlined organization here on my MacBook.
My MacBook. Hee hee!
Of course I still had to do the crude partial desaturation of that photo with Photoshop on my PC… the teensy bit I’ve played with iPhoto made it crystal clear that I need/want Photoshop or at least GIMP.
