    I have a bitter-sweet relationship with any Mac that's under my whip-hand, although I'm the one who thinks I'm in control. I nurture time, attention and money upon them, curse at them, but never praise them unless in earshot of someone who casts aspersions upon them.

    I must also try to get out more often.

    My Mac is also a bloke... :D

    Edit: Although I'm not particularly pleased with this quote:

    I wasn't aware that being single was such a crime.

    Don't you know it's "LA computadora"?

    Although in Spain it's "EL ordenador"...

    I'm a total domineering husband to mine. I treat it badly and then get irritated when it doesn't work properly. :eek:

    Sample conversation from the other day:

    Mr. Lau: "Aren't you supposed to wait until the light goes on before you bung it on the floor?"
    Lau: Bollocks, it'll be fine. :p

    I never thought of mine as having a gender though, and now, even thinking about it, I can't think of it as male or female. Probably a defence mechanism to avoid guilt at my bad behaviour to it.

    Ooo... I just realised I take my 17" MBP to bed with me. It's so big and so warm...

    To watch movies on... pervs. :D

    Over the past couple of weeks: Three Colours Trilogy, Pi, Goodfellas (again), Clockwork Orange... Punch Drunk Love, Garden State, Mulholland Drive (again), random Sopranos, Seinfeld and Six Feet Under episodes.

    Nothing smutty at all; it doesn't do much for me. :(

    Still, when it gets a little hot, the MBP does start with the heavy breathing. ;)

    Oooh some good choices there.

    All my Macs have been female - must be like ships I suppose :eek:

    Occasionally my g/f has caught me looking at another woman and said "You were looking at her iPod/ Mac weren't you?"

    Sadly it's true :eek:

    Texas, unfortunately.
    Do I love my Mac? Nah, it's just holding my over until I can get one of those awesome Packard Bell's I've heard so much about.:cool:

    Seriously, it's not that weird. Ever hear of people who have sex with cars? It's pretty common.

    EDIT: w00t 1800th post! Yes, I am bored today...

    Easier to have it in the car rather than with the car.

    I really really really wish I did not just google that.

    On the subject at hand I love my violin. if anything happened to it i'd be in tears. I can't quite say the same about my macs. Well, maybe my cube.

    i love two macs. it's never a threesome, because i don't think i can handle working two computers at once. also, i don't want the older, slower one to feel inadequate or self-conscious next to her younger, slimmer and sexier sister. yes, they're sisters. is that wrong?

    One of my macs was born a pc but switched over when she realised she just couldn't take running windows anymore.
