I mentioned on Saturday that I had some news to share that would be revealed on Monday. I know that everyone was eagerly awaiting Monday to hear what it was. I know I was eagerly awaiting today! Well, here it is. I am the proud owner of a shiny new iPad. ( Were you expecting some other news? Bahaha.). It is my birthday present/trade in of my old MacBook pro. I am beyond happy with it. I am in fact sitting in bed blogging from my iPad right now. I am so excited to use it, that I can’t think of anything clever to say right now.
So this blog post is officially done. I am going to play Angry birds HD.
Today was our day off. We wandered some thrift stores in Langley and found a sweet board game from the 70′s called “Careers”. I would have some photos to post of the day, but when I went to take photos with my iPhone today the camera stopped functioning. Later in the day we went to the Mac Station (secretly hoping they’d say: “Poor girl! We will replace it with an iPhone 4″). All they did was reset it. And it worked again. Bittersweet, I guess.
We also had (what I thought was) a brilliant idea while we were there. I have been ogling the iPad since it’s inception. I need it. There’s no way around this. I just need the iPad. But…getting it is a whole different story. But I had a cunning plan today. I have my old (4 years) macbook pro sitting in a drawer in my desk. I used it up until this summer when I got my iMac. It was kept because I thought I would want to still have something portable should we go on a trip. But then…I realized today, ‘What if I could trade it for an iPad?’ I brought it in to the Mac station to get them to evaluate how much they would trade it for. Not much they said (but I will find out tomorrow afternoon the exact number). Although I’m still hoping that (if the number is too low) I can sell it on eBay and get enough to get an iPad (at the Mac Station they have to buy it for quite a bit lower than if it was sold privately because they still need to make money for resale).
That’s my story for the day.
I want an iPad.
And I’ve got no exciting pictures to share. Sorry.
