Since my desktop computer died last Thursday (R.I.P. Herbie 1999-2007) I decided to bite the bullet and buy the notebook computer I have been dreaming about purchasing for a long time. What helped my decision was the necessity (the above mentioned computer death) as well as 0% financing for a year from Circuit City as well as a free printer and router with mail-in rebate. The actual process of purchasing the computer was brutally horrific, what with the warranty spiel (no thanks), and the “we don’t have the printer in stock, so you won’t get any of the items for free”. Luckily, my wife, who I call “The Closer”, a baseball term, was there to make sure we got everything they advertised. Anyhow, with Helen and Karen posting pictures of their workspaces, I thought I would post a picture of my new workspace (Herbie 2):
Note this isn’t a picture of my actual notebook, as I wouldn’t display a completely random picture of a generic football player doing his best Statue of Liberty impression, but it is a picture of the laptop I purchased. Notice I opted not to take a picture of my workspace in my home. I do this as a service to you, my dear reader, as it is currently too gruesome and NSFW as my poor old computer is just laying there. guts strewn about.
The great thing about the notebook computer is that hopefully my new workspace won’t be in any one room anyhow. I hope to be more productive a writer as I will be able to write in bed, in the office, or in the kitchen. I think I’ll stay out of the bathroom, though.
