Liberated from its box,
I cannot help but look.
It beckons me with its speed.
Like the caterpillar from its cocoon,
It is as elegant as the butterfly.
It surfs the web
Like a knife cuts through butter.
The Siren has hooked her lover.The ship has sailed.

Note to reader: This is a follow up on my Magpie tale, The Siren .
(And, if you haven't guessed it, both were about my new laptop.)
*doin' the happy dance*
A new lap top or ordering fast food at the drive-thru?ReplyDelete
dufus: My "Siren" is waaaay faster than the drive-thru. See?? There I am ... gone!ReplyDelete
Addictive isn't it!ReplyDelete
Loved the egg/baseball story. Only one thing to do after such episodes. Have the car detailed then sell it!
Stafford: Very addictive - mind you I went from 512 mb to 4G RAM. My ass is RAMming all over the place!ReplyDelete
Re: Egg-baseball: Thanks! The car didn't smell that bad because the seats were vinyl and it was a fairly easy cleanup. (But she did leave the windows open as much as she could.)
Ooh Ah. A new toy!ReplyDelete
Reffie: Yessss! I'm 'giga' fast now. Mega was so outdated.ReplyDelete
This is wonderful. I am typing upon a new beast, myself. Dancing right along side you, sorry if I step on your toes.... woo hoo!ReplyDelete
brenda: No worries! It'a a great feeling, eh?ReplyDelete
I wish I had a new Siren singing, but an old hag it is! :(ReplyDelete
RA: I'll have my Siren try and send you a sailor with a new laptop!ReplyDelete
That's wonderful! I'm so excited! New laptops rock! (And so did your poem!)ReplyDelete
Linda: Thanks! I'm having a ball zipping here and there with ease - my golden oldie (which I will keep updated) took forever to download some sites. (My mum had to use "oldie" for a couple of days while her's was in the shop - it drover her nuts!)ReplyDelete
This is the first poem I've read about a laptop. Congratulations.ReplyDelete
BonyMike: I was going crazy with the old one - got the new one, but didn't yank it out of its box for a month!!! Yeah, I procrastinate. Glad to hear you got your "New and Improved" computer, too! Now, no lollygagging ... get back to writing that book, mister!ReplyDelete
I'm limping along on KOA camp wireless right now and really, really wishing my ship would sail.ReplyDelete
Alice: Wow! I'm surprised you can even get a signal out there. Happy camping!ReplyDelete
