This past Saturday I was out of the house for most of the day running errands and doing family things. When I arrived back home I walked into the kitchen and found a box sitting on the counter waiting for me. Kenny surprised me by buying me a Asus Eee PC – Seashell mini laptop. ‘I thought you could easily just throw it in your purse or your bag when you’re riding or on trips,’ he said. Isn’t he just a gem?
With a 10 inch screen, built in camera, Microsoft office suite and a web browser, I pretty much have everything I personally need to sit down and write something or upload photos when I‘m on the go. This light as a feather little bugger came dressed in a very spiffy high gloss black finish and I’ll tell you, if it isn’t just the cutest darn thing, I don‘t know what is!
Cut to this morning. As I sipped my coffee and got myself ready for work, I moved all of the things I had put in my tank bag the night before out on the counter to put into my handbag. That’s when it hit me. I’m a nerd. A big one. There may have been some key indicators prior to this, but clearly I must have been ignoring them.
Blackberry, Ipod, camera, backup camera I used to take the picture of my regular camera, 8GB memory stick, and now… a tiny laptop? Oofa, I think someone might need to stage an intervention and save me from myself. All this from the girl who won’t succumb to using a GPS!
So how about you? What’s in your tank bag? Are you a road GEEK or are you the no cords attached type when you hit the highway?
