Fall to me means the coming of crispy, cool weather, bright colors of the autumn leaves, the Renaissance Festival, and of course peak season of one of my favorite fruits…apples. I have been longing for an Apple for years and I can’t seem to get one. Are you confused?
That’s because I’m talking about a Mac Apple! I want an Apple laptop more than anything right now…except maybe a trip to Hawaii. I have several loves in my life…my husband, my friends and family, Hawaii, and Mac computers.
I was teased with a Mac laptop when I was in college working for my university’s Marketing Department. I got to play with said laptop a couple hours out of every week and it was fan-freakin-tastic. Then, of course, I graduated thus ending my time with my precious computer. Back to boring PCs I went.
I currently own a Sony Vaio (thanks to my dear husband) and it has been a good computer aside from the cable used to charge the computer and the battery lifetime. The cable started “chirping” about a year after I had the computer and I had to get it replaced. Then, a year later, it started “chirping” again! I had to replace the cable again. Then the prongs on the one side of the cable messed up so we had to replace that part (luckily it was the cheaper end). Finally, just recently I caught the cable in the metal of my recliner and it cut a hole in the rubber, exposing the electric fibers of the cord so it doesn’t charge my computer anymore.
The cord not working wouldn’t be as big of a deal, but my computer holds a charge for literally 5 minutes. That is not an exaggeration. I unplug my computer, take it into the kitchen to log my food, and then after 5 minutes I have to go grab my cord. It is not fun.
Anyhow, I am going to get a new computer eventually, but I do not have the necessary funds at this point in time. If anyone wants to send me money or a computer, I would be willing to take it. It would be a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it right?
I do love fall though. It’s my absolute favorite time of the year. Yay FALL!
