Liking A Laptop

Last week, I discovered that I am a grandma masquerading as a yuppie, what with my preferences for non-touchscreen devices and willingness to ditch these time-wasting games/apps (displaying maturity right there), only to succumb to a good game of Fruit Ninja this afternoon for a good fifteen minutes.
