Officially Emergent...

I have now joined the ranks of Jason Edwards, Harris Bechtol, Rob Bell and numerous other Emergent luminaries. No, I have not suddenly developed washboard abs, grown my hair out into a mop, nor am I sporting horn-rimmed glasses.

I, my friends, am the owner of a brand new laptop computer. Sorry Dell fellows, the dude over at Best Buy sold the hell out of my gullible ass and I couldn't wait the 3-5 days for delivery. I knew what I wanted and I wanted it then.

When I was a kid I told myself that when I became a grown up and went to the toy store, I would not require myself to wait until I got home to open up the product. Well I'm a grown up and it's time to fulfill the promise. I drove myself to the nearest wireless connection, Panera Bread, and opened this bad boy up to begin being truly postmodern.

Let the coffee shop blogging begin!!!

If I see you start drinking lattes and talking down to me about music that I have no clue about I WILL call East Texas to come find you and to do what it must.

The Table Guy said...

A worthwhile investment, especially for an up and coming writer such as yourself.

Unless its a Mac.

Define "grown up".

How exciting! Yeah, I'm in living in emergent city, and all they ever talk about is their damn macs. You'll never be one of them. You don't have enough snob in you!

Singleton said...

Damning macs? Janalee!?! I didn't no Dallas was making you a cold, bitter soul. My two macs and I are crying ourselves to sleep at night.

welcome to a world of beautiful minds, craig. as if you needed the computer to do that for you. however, you will notice how much more "tail" you will be able to "swing" now that you have a laptop. especially if its a mac. watch out!

greenISgood said...

Tail?

Harris said "tail" - hehehehe

CONGRATULATIONS on the new laptop!!! That's great! I'll look forward to seeing what sort of entries come out of your pit stops at Panera Bread.

Incidentally, we have a Panera Bread in Issaquah, Washington!!! Isn't that great? :)
