Asus update

Now that I've had my baby laptop for a little longer I must admit that I'm enjoying it.

Did I lower my expectations of what the Asus should be? Yes. Did I open my heart a smidge to let the lil guy in? Totes. Am I in love with Mr. Asus? Negativo. Is the speed way faster if I give the laptop a little TLC and some time to warm up before I dive in and open 10 internet pages simultaneously? Maybe. Am I in love with having my own personal computer in my apt? You betcha.

And there you have it.
I'm going to stop complaining about my brandie new miniature laptop and start appreciating the perks and benefits. Guess I just had to get over the shock of realizing the imperfection.

Kind of like with this season of The Office. Once I finally admitted that it just isn't as good as it used to be, I could just enjoy it for what it had become. A mediocre sitcom that used to be stellar. I will always have a special place in my heart for The Office, for Jim&Pam's love, and for Angela's embittered anger. It's only right. I will always care about the storyline and laugh out loud (ok more like cackle if you must know) at the jokes.

A couple years back, watching shows like The Office and Arrested Development on Netflix helped me laugh at a time when my life looked bleak. I couldn't help but escape right into the inane hilarity of it all. And forget my own troubles.

Or I'd remember my troubles but decide that "hey, at least my arm didn't get eaten by a sea lion"... "I'm so lucky that I don't have a boss like Michael and a co-worker like Dwight"... and "if GOB can get through his divorce from his wife that he married on a dare, I know my life will be ok".

And my life was ok. And in time, with a lot of laughter and an adorable Asus computer, my life is better than just ok. You know I had to work the Asus back into this post somehow.

I admit, this season isn't nearly as funny as say season 2 and 3 and 4 but I still love The Office!

um I so agree with you about THe Office...I just haven't accepted it yet...

so... since we can all agree that the Office needs a little help to get back to the glory days...

maybe you should write in and suggest me as a new cast member or writer or something? hrmm, that's an interesting idea.

And then John K. (Jim) can break
up with Emily Blunt to pursue me. the perfect storm.
