The Shame

Ok ok soo after all the hassle of game city (I’ll fill you in on the details later) I came home dying from a cold and sneezing my brains out. I made it back on sheer hope that my new laptop was sitting on the side when I got there. My lovely new RED dell, baby doll thing.

Sure enough I finally arrived home and there it was. Centre of the room, glowing, church music playing in the background and fairies dancing around the top. cant quiet work out how much of that was in my head, but my god it was a spectacular moment. I picked up the box it was a little light considering it’s a laptop and the box was kind of small and shabby. But I was too overwhelmed to pay any attention to detail. I ripped open the box and there inside I found this=

Hmm don’t look quite right. The stuck on print out of the dell logo, was a sure give away. this was not what I ordered. I look up in pure disbelief at the 3 family members now laughing there asses off. I cant believe that my family could have been so cruel or that they had the time to make it. This particular dell “rip off” started out life as a book, some red paper and good old masking tape. The custom keyboard is a great touch, the coffee button has to be a new must for all computers…. if it worked. Once again I cant believe that these people especially my mother spent a whole day off there life’s making this trash. Just for that one moment.


This is probably one of those things that will never ever go away a will be brought up at any possible moment to peeve me off. I can see it now “Rebecca go get your laptop to show them” pftt I feel depressed at my future shame.

So after a hour and a half of nothing but shame and begging for them to give me my real laptop, i finally saw it. And what the first thing I do, first though to go through my head “I have got to put this on my blog” SAD. Which leads us to this very moment. I’m still ill and still peeved so what do I do? I write about it, typical English approach. But my new dell baby doll makes up for the poopiness.
