patience is really stretched

I had a very long day. I attended my class early even without sleep from my baby's tantrums because of runny nose and asthma. After school i sent my daughter at school and attended again another class. After two subjects at exactly 3:35 in the afternoon, im rushing to my daughter's school to pick her up because shes already aout at 3:00 pm. We ate our merienda and afterwards i was reminded by the school's administrator for the parents orientation at 5:30 so we went back again to my daughter's school. My daughter, who is two years old is touring around the meeting hall ang getting all the things inside the room so im signalling the nanny to get her(my daughter). I keep on making signals to the nanny but she never mind. I stay calm. After the orientation at 8:00pm, on the car, i instructed the nanny to cook food for ayesha so she can eat rice when we got home. What happened is she went outside the house ang make "tsismis" to the nannies on the neighborhood! I cooked the food, fed my daughter and washed my daughter! So im really pissed off. Its the first time I uttered nasty words to her. I've been very forgiving all the years but she's taking advantage of my kindness so i think what I did was right!

my new favorite lappy

Steve Jobs says netbooks are just slow, cheaper laptops with low-quality displays and are no good for anything. He dissed them as such during the unveiling of the iPad and judging by falling sales, since then, he may have a case. Except that the new macbook air had launched, just become my new favorite laptop.

It costs $999 so its not cheap but on the other hand, i works for me as a small screen laptop with a long battery life and its just easy to carry around compared to my old macbook first generation.
The design is a thing of beauty and the weight at 2.3 pounds is trifling. I had trouble finding the thin sliver of aluminium in my bag this morning among all my papers. I also like the way the slim power cord attaches magnetically to the edge of the Air.

A PC person would also question the value for money here. I think the quality of the screen, the solid state drive, the included iLife software and the overall build quality of the aluminium casing justifies the price. It is also a third less than the previous lowest priced MacBook Air and is now the same price as the basic macbook, so in Apple’s terms, this is one cheap netbook!
