Good - I have a new laptop! Wheee! It's a shiny new MacBook. OOOOH! AHHHH!
Bad - Said new MacBook came as a result of my old laptop no longer recognizing its AC adapter. It wasn't a case of the AC adapter no longer working. No, no. Vista, the bane of my existence, just decided to be the biznatch that it is and just no longer play nice with it.
Ugly - have you seen the price tag that comes with Apple products. Sweet baby Jesus!
Good - Fun new toy! WHEEEE!
Bad - Oh! Wait. All of my files, programs, documents, and essentially MY LIFE are on that computer over there that WON'T BOOT UP. MOTHER BIRD!
Ugly - Me. With a screw driver. Watch out.
Good - I can use my Microsoft mouse? For reals? and still right click? Someone is getting a huge kiss for this.
Bad - SAY WHAT?! I have lost my ability to use Windows Live Writer, people. GET ME A DRINK!
Ugly - This blog post. Avert your eyes. THE HORROR!
Good - I am no longer tethered to a power cord. Look at me blogging from the kitchen.
Bad - Wait. THAT is bad.
Ugly - Yeah, this is going to get that way super fast. Can I just saranwrap this bad boy? Is that safe? Do they sell such beasts?
Good - The learning curve is short given my history with these purdy little things in my work history.
Bad - My propensity to use CTRL + C, V, X, B, I, etc. in my daily life that will be HARD to break
Ugly - I have done it at least a dozen times in writing this post, making it twice as long to publish. Sigh.
