I didn’t know I was looking for love

Billy Mac(k)

I swear. True, and I am quite sure, ever lasting love.

From the moment I decided I wanted him, truly and utterly wanted him, until the moment where he actually sat down on my lap, I guess only a few hours went. I met him, had a very brief talk with him and that was enough. He swept me off my feet. Completely. I invited him to join me on my cafe visit. We have spend all afternoon together and pages full of script were written without any effort.

He is gorgeous beyond belief. Impeccably dressed, slick, lanky, simply so beautiful. He is the man of my dreams. I didn’t know that I was looking for love until I found him.

And he is very intelligent too and so easy to talk to, he only needs half a word and he understands what I want. Very fast.

He wanted me to give him a name. That was a no-brainer – Billy, of course, I said to him. Billy. Mac(k).

I am sure we will go on adventures together, train travelling, spending time in cafes drinking tea and do a lot of writing.

Love. At first sight. What took me so long.

I’ll let you know how it is to switch from a Vicious Vista PC to a Mac OSX Beauty. I haven’t run into any problems yet, everything seems intuitive and easy to find. Mind you I had never ever worked on a Mack before. I installed Final Draft on it, and that went without any problems. And the fact that it is small and beautiful and easily fits into my bag will probably mean that we will become inseparable. In fact, I think we already are.

Just the fact that it takes about 5 seconds for it to start up (Vista takes about 5 years on my fairly new laptop) blows me away. And it being a Mack, all those super groovy features is has, and just the beauty of the machine itself, it was worth every penny. I really do understand Mac-o-holics now, once you are used to this you never want to go back. This is indeed, how a laptop is supposed to be. I am sure I will run into some problems too but until now, it’s looking good.

How could it not be – check those legs!

  1. It looks very nice, so congratulations :) Just don’t put it too close to candles because it melts easily. Trust me – You don’t want a big hole in the back of your sleek computer, do you?

  2. I don’t have candles at home and the cafe doesn’t have them either. So no worries there. I would be more worried for Billy to get stolen.

  3. Ah, good point! But I don’t think you would ever allow such a thing to happen. Guard him with your life :D

  4. Another Mac convert, I know quite a few. If I ever get a laptop (I’ve tried my son’s Vaio and couldn’t get on with it) I’ll certainly look at Mac(k).

  5. I’ve often been tempted to go for a Mac, but I use massive amounts of PC only software and the idea of running Windows on an emulator just seems daft.

    Ah well – maybe in a different life.

  6. @grigorisgirl: I can recommend it.

    @wicker woman: I have a massive amount of pc software too, I keep my other laptop (with larger screen) for things like photoshop and illustrator. Maybe one day I will make a complete switch, but that is too pricey at the moment.
    By the way – you can run genuine (non emulator) Windows XP on a Macbook without any problems. (Not that I am doing that)

    @Jill – Hey what can I say. :-)

  7. It sounds like a match made in heaven.
    I wanted to swap too, but the software I use for my works needs Windows :(
    Maybe in the future… Who knows.

  8. I am a very lucky girl to be able to use my best friends Mac all the time. The three of us have loads of fun together :o)
    He fits in your lap and is as fast as a guy should be (unfortunately guys are not…)
    I wish the 2 of you many happy times !!!

  9. I started with Mac(k), which I loved, and then switched to the PC guy because it was cheaper and most of my work used it. But tell you, if I had the money, I would get myself a macbook.

    My original “powerbook” was the first color screen 6 inches, had 4 mb ram, and cost me $3000 LOL!
