I do not own a laptop or a netbook or a blackberry or even an iPhone. Call me behind the times whatever but I do have a desktop. So the past couple days, I went down to the Cape(Cod) to visit my mother at her beach house and she doesn’t have a computer down there or anything. So what should be a couple nice relaxing days by the beach is nothing of the sort.
I was losing my damn mind. I was having serious withdrawals being away from my computer. No seriously sweaty palms, fidgety, the works. I’m not even exaggerating, ask Gena and Jenna, they had to put up with my non-stop text messages. How is it that something I lived without owning up until about five years ago, I can’t seem to live without now? I couldn’t stand not being able to check my email and approve comments on my blog. What if by some miracle someone famous was trying to get a hold of me on twitter or something? What if I miss something so big and so huge, like Dooce visiting my blog?
Okay, so its all a little drastic, i know. But I couldn’t even just google something real quick. And its not like I sit my ass in front of my computer all day either. I mean, seriously…..heh, who does that? Alright, so sometimes I do. Honestly though, I just like having the option to jump on the world wide web whenever I feel like it. Had I had a laptop or a netbook or anything, I would have been able to relax, even if i only used it for like 5 minutes. The option would be there.
As pathetic as this may sound, I left the Cape earlier than planned because I couldn’t take it. I think most of it is in part due to BlogHer and how I feel like i have so much more that needs to get done before I go, ie. shopping. Before you start thinking that I am some blogging junky who really has no life other than her computer, let me just say that my mothers house on the Cape is only about an hour away from my house. No biggie. I tend to go down ALOT anyways. It’s not like it was a real vacation.
So, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need a Netbook. Not a laptop, just a netbook. I don’t need to upload my pictures or music or anything like that…I have all that on my desktop. I just need something that I can carry around with me and check my email and blog from. Thats all. I’m on the hunt for a Netbook, any suggestions?? I was looking at the cute Dell mini netbooks. Hmmm..
