My Guilty Pleasures....

This weeks challenge blog is about our guilty pleasures... I've been mulling this one over for the last few days since stumbling upon the blogging group and was honestly left scratching my head...

In the meantime I've been sitting back with a hazelnut nescafe coffee stick coffee drink thingy (hey I know what I mean LOL) reading and updating facebook, playing facebook games, searching out seeds for my proposed veggie garden on ebay and online shops, hyena-ing a gorgeous MCN set for my baby boy and re-connecting with my blog and searching out my favourite music on you tube... All the while processing photo's for friends and family in lightroom and playing with them in photoshop as well as in "my time" playing a bit of World of Warcraft and whooping some alliance backsides in Barthilas (for the horde!!) and then it hit me - My guilty pleasure is my computer!!!


Guilty as I know I spend waaaay too much time and money with it LOL But it is a necessity, a work horse and for me a pleasure!!

I usually sit in my chair in the corner with my feet elevated on the stool that is meant to be my laptop table and laptop on my lap whilst I type and click away with the TV on in front of me playing a music channel from Austar... My mouse is in my right hand when in use and I use my rather ample thigh as a mouse pad ;) The funny thing with this laptop is at the moment things seem to take twice as long as normal to do at the moment as my poor old MacBook Pro is so well loved she has worn out and lost several keys - I'm missing my "n", left shift, return and control keys - as well as that she is onto her third power-cord - for some reason they just give up the ghost on me - augh!!! But I love my computer - however am looking forward to receiving an upgrade for my birthday in a few weeks (the upgrade is being received in a few weeks - not my birthday LOL)

This lappy has sooo many good memories on it - so many photo's and friends are to be found - especially in facebook.. at the moment I'm addicted to the cafe world game (warning do not start playing!!!) I can usually find someone to chat to if I need an ear to vent to or some friendly advice, It's a great place to re-connect with friends and family who have moved away - making the world that little bit smaller and bringing it into my lounge room :) It's a place where I can search out information and support for the health issues myself and my family are being affected by of late - I can also be very practical and bank pay parking fines etc on my computer!!! There's a wealth of information and resources at ones finger tips with a computer hence mine being my guilty pleasure...

On my computer I can interact, socialise, drool, cry, vent, buy, relate, support, inform, educate and most of all share my life and experieces with a wider world and hopefully find some new friends along the way....

I summary, my guilty pleasure is my computer.. be it online or off.... It's my portal to the world :)
