Good news in the drowned mackie department. See previous post if you’re not privy to the tragedy which occurred here on September 3, 2012. However, everything’ up looking up - got a donor body! I already have the brain! Now I just need to do some mad professor Frankenstein stuff! Ferb, I think I know what we’re going to do today!
Don’t know who Ferb is? Watch this 58 second title sequence, then go watch some episodes. Laugh yourself silly. You can thank me later. Go AFTER you’ve read the post, though. Please. I’m fragile, after all, my girl is on life-support.
Turns out GorgeousGirl (I have nickname explanations in a tab above) has a Macbook she’s not using! I mean, I knew she was a mac girl (after all, we are an endangered species if you ask anyone else who lives in this house) but apparently since getting her iPad, she doesn’t use it much. So she brought it to me yesterday. Making herself late for work – now that’s true love, eh?
I waited for Jake to come home because no way was I doing brain surgery in my current mental state. However, silly boy thought he should do his homework first. Guess all that I said last year made an impact, so who am I to complain. (Yes, I complain all the time…I hear you). Anyways, homework gave him a migraine, so we postponed surgery.
Today, though we hope to:
* Back up GG’s stuff.
*Create a new user on Arthur (that’s what she named him – good name, I’d tell you why, but then what’s the point of all my nicknames…)
* Install mackie’s brain as the new user.
* Have a mac that we both can use, should she choose to come over and collect it, which she said isn’t likely.
* The only hitch would be the operating systems. Her's is a year older than mine. I’ll think about that later. Right now I’m dreaming about having my girl back, and ditching this PC…
If you’re one of those techy people, please feel free to chime in and tell us what’s wrong with our plan. Or, come over and assist. We could always use another hand. I have lots of gloves.
Have you ever had to do a technical thing you’d never done before? How did it go? Am I crazy to try this or should I just go to the genius bar at the apple store, which wouldn’t be anytime soon, since I just got to unbuckle my seatbelt and move freely about the cabin on Wednesday. Translation: I’m not on bed rest anymore, but I’m not allowed to do anything…
