Silver Linings

and no, I’m not talking about the movie….. although I hear it’s worth a look (Silver Linings Playbook is it’s whole title I think and Bradley Cooper’s hair got great reviews!) Sadly my beloved iMac crashed on me right before New Year and has looked like this…

20130104-183315.jpg..ever since. Yep, that would be black, as in doesn’t turn on anymore 😦
This has taught me two very important things……
1/ No, an iPad is not enough ( not even 2 of them!) and 2/ yes, I used to read a lot more before a huge permanently connected to the Internet screen was part of my daily existence. Without my main computer to lure me in a zillion times a day I downloaded Julian Barnes Sense of An Ending first and couldn’t put that down until it was finished and then today I started Salman Rushdie’s Joseph Anton. It’s been a couple of years since I read any of his stuff but now I’m back under his spell 😉 Really, it got plenty warm enough today for me to get out of here and do a couple of miles but I just couldn’t put him down. I’d forgotten how seductive it is to be in the thrall of a great writer. But……yes, the iMac will get replaced and soon! Maybe I’ll just pick one day of the week to turn it off and just read one thing instead of reading a bit of everything which is usually where the Internet takes me.
In the meantime David is on his way home and should turn up around midnight tonight so you know what that means don’t you………………….yes, we can play burglars!!! Hahaha……………..

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
