Get MacBook Pro fixed
I write almost every day, including weekends. But I don't have it in me to work at home. I have a cute chihuahua, an Xbox, and a sink full of dirty dishes I need to get to. That's way too much distraction.
So I'm a laptop user. And my laptop for the last year has been my lovely Apple MacBook Pro. I take it around the city with me every single day and it's held up nicely. It's one tough notebook, and I'm not easy on it.
But it's taken everything I've thrown at it in stride. Nothing would stand in its way. Not spilled beer. Not being left in a cab (twice). Not being stuffed into airplane overhead compartments on a dozen cross country flights.
It was a trooper. Without it, none of the Crave articles you've read by me would have been possible. But it's retired.
You see, my "T" key stopped working. Happily, Apple said it would fix it under warranty. But then the morning I was going to take it into the Apple store for a repair Seattle was overrun by a ferocious thunderstorm. A huge crash happened just above my building. And that cute chihuahua I mentioned earlier got scared. And knocked my MacBook Pro off the couch. The LCD shattered, and I know Apple won't cover that.
So I'm on my back-up white MacBook for now. It works fine. But it's not my trooper. It's not my sidekick. My holiday wish is that my roullette luck holds during my Vegas trip in January so that I can get it fixed in the next couple of months. It wants to go to work again, too. I just know it.
