It’s The Second Year, Bitches, Back To The Blog

March 3, 2008 § Leave a comment

Recently at work we were talking about how it wouldn’t feel like the new year until a certain book was done. And now, the same sentiment feels apt to describe the new laptop I got in the mail today. So, we’re back at it again. I’m going to treasure this beast of a machine the same way that Hillary Clinton is treasuring these last moments of relevance on SNL* and tonight’s The Daily Show.

I apologize for the watermark but not the outdated reference. It still works.

Speaking of which, tonight I will watch and react to her appearance on Stewart’s show that is daily. Whether or not this is in a liveblogging fashion will be entirely up to the heat levels, supposedly quite low, that the MBP irradiates onto me as I sit here in the reclining chair.

First not so positive reaction to the laptop: my hands moving across the keyboard seem to trigger the dimming/illumination function more than they should. Maybe my living room isn’t brightly lit, but it’s not dim either.

* Is anyone else really not feeling Armisen’s Obama? Armisen could do no wrong before this letdown, and now his lackluster Obama really doesn’t help the racism inherent in having a guy who most would classify as White playing Barack Obama, the first incredibly likely presidential nominee of color. Lorne Michaels can spin it anyway he wants about how this can be a moment of true color-blindness, but I don’t think the Obama impression (which suffers more from the awkward nature he’s been given, which my roommate compares to Kermit the frog) is impressing anybody.
