I want a new computer

I am having severe malfunctions this morning. I want a new computer. I want a mac. I have a 4 year old Dell - which I loved - but now is slow and starting to do wacky stuff. Why can't computers last more than a couple of years? I can't seem to upload my workout information to nike+ which really makes me mad. I ran a 5K this morning. I want those three miles on my little graph of my runs.

Do you see my alcoholic nature in the above paragraph? There it is in green and white, and some red. I want what I want when I want it. And then I want more.

Oh, but I need to always remember that I have what I need and, oh, so much more!

"We are taught to differentiate between our wants (which are never satisfied) and our needs (which are always provided for). We cast off the burdens of the past and the anxieties of the future, as we begin to live in the present, one day at a time. We are granted 'the serenity to accept the things we cannot change' - and thus lose our quickness to anger and our sensitivity to criticism." -- Alcohohlics Anonymous, 3rd ed. p. 560
