Kid in a Candy Store

We are pleased to announce the arrival of a new toy at House of Lime.
A new computer!
Lime has been blogging on a Mac with an old OS so she didn't get all these fun bells and whistles before.
Now she can play with color.
And Size!
And font!

Shiny computer
Staring at me from the desk
I marvel at it.
I can make a silly haiku look oh so poetic by center justifying.

Hhhmm, I tried to figure out the picture thing so text could wrap all around it. I'm not doing something right. And maybe I will finally figure out that whole link magic. I dunno. I'm not going to fool with it anymore at the moment. But you can bet I will fool with it later. I've got more buttons on this 'create post' box than I even knew existed before. Yes, I know this is a pretty dull post for all of you to read. Feel free to laugh at me for my childish excitment. It's ok.

In not so exciting weekend news, I went to the local St. Patrick's parade. Diana marches in the band and the hubby is a firefighter so we've got two people to watch. Isaac was at a friend's house so it was just Calypso and I. We froze our butts off waiting for the parade to start 45 minutes late. Then we got to see every friggin politician in the county trudge past. No, I don't want a pencil, or button, or balloon, or some other stupid piece of junk with your name or face on it. In fact, I don't really want to see you at all. I want to see marching bands, and bagpipers, and floats, and horses, and big Irish dogs that look like they could eat you in two bites. Hey, now there's a thought...Let's get the dogs to chase the politicians. Now THAT would be a parade! But I digress. Calypso and I were frozen to the core. Thank heavens the marching band and the fire trucks were early in the parade. We waved to Diana and Daddy and then hightailed it out of there. Aren't we just full of the holiday spirit??

So what did you do all weekend?

YAY! A new computer is awesome . I was in awe of the many things I had missed out on when I got my new comp eight months ago . Have fun playing with your new toy !

This weekend was fun but busy . Saturday was my daughters 14th birthday and we took her out to dinner and of course games and such . Her boyfriend went with us and he and I played a little bump and rub on the go-carts and I beat him . That was fun! hehe I hope you have a good day !

Congrats on the new computer. I look forawrd to seeing what new tricks you will pull out. Even though I have had the capability of size and color difference I almost never use it. I am so boring!

Congrats on your new puter. I think parades and really big dogs were made for each other. I'd like to see more of that.

A new computer! What fun! What did I do this weekend? Slept most of Saturday after picking up an extra shift at work. I was pooped! Watched the Sopranos. Ate Hagaan Daz Coffee Ice Cream. Watched a great movie with a friend (Rabbit Proof Fence). Blogged a bit. Real athletic stuff, you see.

Congrats on the new toy, Limey!!!

Don't you wonder why we do parades? "Yay it's a holiday. Let's walk around in costumes and play annoying music?"????

BTExpress said...

I'm so pleased you got a new one. Is this one a mac as well?

I had a great time on Friday night - but the rest was decidely average - I adventured with the amazing projectile vomit boy - woo hoo - he's stopped now so I've decided to keep him.
