Shannon was in heaven last night. He could watch watch hockey and play Civilization IV at the same time. How did he do that you ask? Isn't your desktop computer in the kitchen while the TV is in the living room you say? Why yes. But he used the laptop.
Yep, we bought a laptop Sunday. Shannon may be heading out for the summer in the next month so we thought we'd get him the laptop for entertainment and talking to us via Skype. It was pretty much the cheapest laptop at the store but all we were looking for was something with a webcam that would play Civ IV and his collection of old strategy and war games. This is it:
Of course, this means that the desktop I'm typing at right now has now been officially titled Mom's Computer. No more husband looking at me with big brown eyes and wanting to play Europa Universalis while I'm trying to write a blog post. Despite the fact that I now how my own exclusive computer I'm still a bit jealous though. His latop has twice the RAM and twice the hard drive space.
I should note that his heavenly computer/TV time last night wasn't perfect. Philly lost to the Penguins. For the second time in the series. Hee hee.
