My first ‘miscellaneous’ post in this blog

Behold the beast that put me $3k+ in debt. Now that I actually have it at home, I can safely say that it was worth every penny. I mean, look at it! It’s gorgeous. For those who are unfamiliar with iMacs, the viewable screen area is 24″, and the machine itself is about 1.5″ thick. The computer is built into the back of the screen, so there isn’t a tower that goes with it. Basically what you see is what you get. The laptop beside it is what I’ve been using for the past 1 1/2 years, and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I am so glad I switched. I thought it’d be had to switch to an Apple, after having used PCs all my life, but this computer is so much easier to use! It’s so intuitive; No more messy program installations, no more clutter, and everything is so graphic-oriented. I. LOVE. IT. Plus, it comes with a built-in webcam (see black square at the top of the computer), and a remote that can control music/dvds/photo slideshow/etc from across the room (see white thin thing on the right side of the comp – when I’m not using it, it’s held there magnetically). My BF’s computer is in a nook to the right of my desk, and every so often, I see him glance over at my beautiful iMac with a look of jealousy. Anyway, I could talk about my computer all night, so I’ll just stop for your sake. :)

In other news, I had my surgery done yesterday afternoon (it’s like 2am, so technically it was yesterday). The procedure took 2 1/2 hrs b/c the said they ran into some difficulties with my bottom 2 wisdom teeth, and said I would feel more pain than normal in the days to come. They’ve been drugging me up pretty good, so I haven’t felt much discomfort yet, but we’ll see. The BF made me scrambled eggs for dinner, and jello for dessert since I can’t really open my mouth very wide, and chewing is out of the question. I put the $200 cost on my Mastercard, and will pay it off next Friday.

Financially, the TSX has made some major ground the past few days, and I was able to recoup some of the losses I suffered last week in my portfolio. I can only hope this continues!
