Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

I'm a Computer Challenged Goober

Not really. I just don't care about some stuff. I LOVE to look around the Internet, chat with friends, check out what other people are talking about, research different topics of interest, and occasionally I can be caught playing some online games. I received a laptop last Christmas because I constantly complained to Hubster that everything he did on the computer slowed it down and caused all sorts of other problems. I wasn't positive that it was him, but I was pretty sure the "adult" sites that were popping up were not from anything I did. Now the poor thing (the desktop) can not even access the internet, and we can't figure out why. My laptop is fine.

Anyway, I've seen all the hype for Windows Vista, and that's what I'm running, but I've never read my manual or even really checked out the features on my system. It just doesn't matter. Hubster was dying to check out the features when I first got my laptop, but part of our agreement was that he was not allowed to touch it. It was hard for him at first, because he is really into "features", but he has learned not to even ask anymore (more than a year later).

Today I decided to check out what all the hype was about, and actually look into the customizable features. I haven't as much as changed the display or the desktop theme since I got it. I always did this with new pictures of the kids each week on the "old" computer. Imagine my surprize when I clicked on "optimize visual display" and a voice started telling me about all my options. So, I'm off to play and get to know my laptop a little better. It's the least I can do to solidify our friendship.
