Too Many Macs That Aren’t Mine :'(

MacBook Pro

I just listened to a voicemail left on my phone from a very excited Simon, who this morning purchased a MacBook Pro Dual Core Duo (just released today).

And here I was sitting in front of my computer before work just wishing I could have one, just a 17 inch MacBook Pro. Not too much to ask for is it?

Once an early adopter, I’m now behind the times. First Sue and her 24 inch iMac, now Simon’s purchase.

Congrats on your purchase Simon, enjoy the awesome power that is the MacBook Pro.

I really should start playing the Lottery. :P

Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my Dad’s birthday (thank goodness else the title would seem a little odd).

I received an SMS from him yesterday, saying that he read my blog and enjoyed the story about my Great-Grandfather Henry… so I know he’s reading this.

If his plans are still on track he should be down here in little over a week for a visit. I now have a four-day weekend coming up as my company has decided to close on the Monday before the Melbourne Cup (a big race where horses run around a track for about three minutes, but for which all Melbourne people get the whole day off).

We’ll have to think of something to do on the Monday. And whatever it is will probably end with a dinner at The Pub in Crown Casino… always a crowd pleaser.

Happy Birthday Dad, hope you have a great day.
