Introducing Rochester

Growing up with two brothers and one sister can be tough sometimes. It definitely is when all of them would preferably spend the whole day in front of a screen, the younger ones playing computer games and the older one working for school and surfing the internet, especially when there is only one ancient computer at home.
I usually have to write my posts in the middle of the night because that's the only time when said computer isn't occupied and whenever I try to shoo my brothers away from their games during the afternoon in order to do my homework the scenario surprisingly much resembles World War II.
However, it doesn't matter anymore because yesterday I have received the most amazing Easter/very early birthday present ever:


Ta-da-da-dam! This is my new Acer Aspire, a laptop which belongs to nobody but me! Apparently I have been moaning about needing a computer successfully, so when my father was shopping in an electric shop and saw the special offer everything played out more than well.
His name is Rochester, paying homage to Jane Eyre, and yes, my wallpaper is a picture of the University of Cambridge...if my classmates find out!
That I have received Rochester means three things:

  1. There will probably be more life signs from me (posts, comments etc.),
  2. I have finally created a Goodreads profile,
  3. Saying that I'm happy would be the understatement of the year.

Should there be anyone whom I have not yet bombarded with friendship requests on Goodreads, please add me. I hope you are all having as nice a weekend as I do and a belated Happy Easter!

  4. Thank you all! I'm just afraid I'm already starting to spend a tiny little bit more time with Rochester than necessary ;)

  5. What a delightful surprise. Rochester is a fabulous name for a computer. Maybe I should name mine Jane and they can 'go out'? :)

    I look forward to your increased presence online.

    1. Oh yes! And then they'll have children we can sell and so we'll be able to start a computer shop.
      I wonder why no one else has ever thought of that? :)

  7. Hi girlie!

    I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the name! Jane Eyre was a book that I didn't read until I was 30 years old (last summer)... and it was one of those books that I kicked myself for NOT reading sooner. It's what the term "classic" was made for.

    Enjoy the new laptop!

    1. Thank you, I couldn't resist the temptation of being able to say: ""I'm in my room with Rochester, please don't disturb us!" ;)
      You're completely right, Jane Eyre is the book I would throw at anyone who says classics are boring!

  8. Dude, I stared at the photo of Rochester for about 30 seconds just to make sure, but we have the same computer. LOL. My computer doesn't have a name yet, but I'm thinking about calling him (it?) Captain Wentworth. We should really name all electronic gadgets after romantic heroes. :)

    1. That's divine will, not a mere coincidence! We have been chosen to create an army of gadgets named after sexy romantic heroes.
      I'm totally for Captain Wentworth. That's a worthy name for him! ;)
