Cheesy Tomato Eggplant yumminess

My beautiful, beloved Macbook has been at service since last Thursday. I didn’t even realize how much I love it before it was gone. Now I find myself at different people’s PC’s, typing much as a seven year old and looking at the screen as a 70 year old. I miss my keyboard, my touchpad and above all, my Retina screen (have you seen the Retina screens? Don’t do it if you don’t wanna end up with a little something under your arm on the way back from the store). But, I hope you bare with me these days in loss, and if you find a seven year old typing mishap, you’ll look the other way!
