The other laptop is a personal Macbook Air. Lion. Light. Lovely.
So the MacBook is named Patronus. This is because my last MacBook rose from the ashes, so I named it Fawkes, after the phoenix in Harry Potter. The iPhone I bought a few months ago (jumping from 1 to 4, and wow wasn't that like living in the future) got named Buckbeak, in keeping with the theme. Patronus has a picture of Hermione's otter patronus for the hard drive icon.
Otter, because my mother really liked otters.
It's been a hell of a year. Hell of a 15-month stretch. I've grown up a lot in the last few years, and learned things one should learn long, long before hitting 50. It's so hard to imagine that my life is more than half over, because I finally feel like I'm just starting to get the hang of it. I'm not there yet, but I can see more of where I want and need to be.
