Giant Blackberry

I get treated really well over at my contract office, I must say. Today was kinda weird. They told me to just walk in on their staff meeting to pick up my new machine. In fact, I was waiting in the front office and the gal just gleefully told me to go into their conference area insisting that they were expecting me...and well, I walked in on a meeting. Heh. Karen, the financial lead asked me to join. Um, Okay... Tea and crumpets? Sure, why not?

Granted, I'm still family, but all I had to do was show up with bright red friction burned shoulders once and whine about the 16lbs lap top a couple of times and suddenly, the thoughtful initial luggage rack order was immediately replaced with a very thoughtful beautiful little itty bitty teeny weeny two pound 11 inch monitor Sony VAIO laptop. A Cindy sized laptop! I just didn't expect to get it within days of them noticing the old machine was a wee bit heavy for me to lug around.

It's so tiny, it's cute. Either that or one can think of it as an enormous blackberry with more computing power. It's got this index finger swiper thinggie too...unfortunately this model doesn't have a web cam. If it did, I'd stream some of the more bizarre and comical meetings I have at the UTLC for entertainment's sake.

Hey buddy! Nice blog that you maintain here.. I just chanced upon your blog surfing the blogosphere. I was thinking.. you could try out some interesting widgets on your page and spice it up with some great pictures. E.g try out the poster widget on http://www.widgetmate.com with your relevant keywords. It has some of the best images i have ever seen.
