6 Days Ago.

Time is a confusing concept.

Gavin took my new computer to fix a small problem I had when I tried to publish a post.


I was expecting a 10 to 15 minute fix or an explanation of why it took longer.  The next morning 10 hours of working time, you know if you discount times I know he was doing something else like sleeping, my new computer is still being fixed.  Now I’ll go back to the beginning; the new computer arrived while I was out.  Gavin left it for me to open, I have no idea why.  Wait, yes I do; we’ve been watching a consumer watchdog TV show and they had a segment about the joy of unboxing, so I’ll credit him for that.

By the way Gav ordered the computer so I didn’t know what kind I was getting; it cost $300 and was small.  I still don’t know what kind of computer it is.  But apparently it is a 2 in 1 like the kind we had to buy for the kids for school, so Yahhhhhhh!  Although it looks more laptoppy than theirs.  And it is black with a turquoise blue line around it; OMG it is so gorgeous; I love it, I love it, I love it!  Even though it doesn’t actually work.

Teale 7557

Future update:  It kinda works now but it is definitely a 2 in 1 because it comes apart and it’s really cool and stuff.  And I just this minute realised it has a caps lock light; hurrah!

Back to the past:  You know the human memory sounds like a time machine when you write stream of consciousness style.

Anyway after unwrapping the computer; Teale, and setting him up to charge, it wouldn’t charge so I asked Gavin to take a look while I went to the ‘little mommy’s room’.  When I returned my loving husband politely informed me that this computer can’t be charged through the ear phone jack.  So I live and learn.

I was expecting, as I told him on my return, that when it charged he would set it up for me, as always.  A computer is not a computer until Gavin has had it for about 6 days and you know made it a computer, so it does stuff when I tell it to.  But he said that this computer was all ready to go.

“Have at!”  he said.  “I can talk you through adding the stuff you want to add,” he said.

Lies that’s what he said; lies and fabrications.


More later; I have children to soothe (or ignore quietly while Gavin soothes) and broken glass to avoid/complain about.

Typed on Teale!

  1. if not for the lack of branding on the bottom of the bezel (say that 10x fast) id think it was an acer, based on the trim.

    1. It is a computer.
      Only joking I’m not quite that bad. Its a nextbook, online shop brand, but it feels good and it has an Intel processor, so. Blah, blah, micro chip, something techie.


      1. haha! i saw the carton, ignored it, and then tried to read tea leaves from the bezel of the actual device. oh, that figures. of course its a nextbook. just like it says on the tin!

      2. ive been using words like realise and civilisation lately, but i actually sent a message with these spellings and the word “realize” in the title 🙂 which is pretty funny, considering i didnt “realise” that i did that. i do now– yes, this qualifies as rambling ❤ no "worriez."
