Meet my buddy, snow white, I mean “maki,” my macbook! It has been 3 years since I got this as a gift from hubby, and he got me one of the pretty macbook skins I like. I’ve called it “maki” and you know that when you name something you get attached to it, I did. Maki has since undergone some ‘operations and parts replacement. Once for having bathed with milk (credits to the little boy), for being made into a piggy bank (little boy put some coins in the cd slot) and for just dying out while we were on a far away vacation.
Ever reliable hubby revived maki on all those instances (handyman!), yes even when I thought that the dying out phase would be the last I’d see of maki. I have to thank hubby for his really good skills and understanding when it comes to computer memory, capacity detection (?), hardware, software and programs. He was the one who made maki and our other notebooks look cooler with this skin…there are tribal designs and other cartoons/anime too. 😉 I however saw another version, snow white’s revenge…ain’t this one cool? lol! Let’s see what the wicked witch has to say.
Anyway, for those 3 years, I’ve always used Windows on maki. Very seldom have I used it’s own OS, actually I use the Mac OS when I use hubby’s. Basically, I haven’t enjoyed the experience much but I always tinker with the desktop and programs when I get the chance (read: when hubby isn’t around). I recently read a friend’s post saying that hers died out totally after 3 years…hopefully, I don’t get to write that on my facebook status soon. Maki has been a big help and companion to me. Whether it be blogging, facebook, photo stocking or plain music tripping, it’s wih me all along…until now that I can’t sleep because of pollen allergies, maki is the only one ‘awake’ with me. 😉
