Does anyone else out there name their computers? Ever since I was in college, my computers have all been the Frumious Bandersnatch, or The Frum for short. I tried to rename the laptop, because I have a desktop downstairs that is The Frum, and we'd have serious computer identity issues if we gave them the same name. So I called the laptop the New Hotness.
The New Hotness overheats. Constantly. Which seems only natural since he is the new HOTness, but I didn't expect him to take me so literally. The power cord actually fell apart under the pressure. "Why isn't this working?" I asked, and then it literally fell into two pieces. It reminds me of the night Slayer proposed to me, and we toasted each other with sparkly liquid, and I was so shaky excited that I put my glass down on the edge of the table. It fell over and shattered. So Slayer's washing the remaining glass in the sink, and he says, "Well, at least we still have ONE glass."
The bottom fell off. Plunk. Right in the sink. Not kidding. Not even exaggerating for comedic effect.
Anyway, I've learned my lesson. I have a new power cord and two computers named The Frumious Bandersnatch. And Slayer and I only toast each other with plastic cups.
