Technical difficulties

So I have a new laptop. It's so cute and tiny that I talk to it like a puppy (I actually said "who's a good boy" - out loud - at one point on Friday), yet it has way more processing power and shiny doodads than my old laptop. And it doesn't make that horrible whheeeeennnnnng sound my old laptop did when I ask it to do anything complicated. I'm a little bit infatuated with it.

That said, as crappy as it was, my old laptop did have one distinct advantage: I could transfer and edit my photos and I could access the internet from home. In short, it was blog-ready. I can still transfer pictures, but I can't fuss with them at all, which is killing me.

Eventually, I'll be able to do all the things I want to do with my new laptop. I just need to reinstall a bunch of stuff, including my photo and modem software.

However, said installation has been totally cock-blocked by not having a CD drive. I ask you, what kind of laptop doesn't have a CD drive???

So minimal pictures until I convince my office help desk to loan me a CD drive. And no internet access at home. So not much reading of blogs. Hopefully, this will be resolved by Monday, but there's so much to talk about - going to my first stitch 'n bitch, the subway knitter drama, seeing a Clapotis in real life, finishing a sock in less than a week.... But I really need to get the hell out of the office. Right. Now.

And I bet meanwhile you all are knitting really awesome things and making each other laugh and just being your wise, funny wonderful selves.

I miss you.

The pic looks great, even small, and I love the sock. What great colors!
