My Boyfriend CK

I realize I will be eating my words with this blog, but the flash of inspiration I’ve had while riding the bus home just was too hard to resist. So, here goes…

I have decided to take the risk of naming my laptop. I know that taking this new “relationship” to the next level means more emotional investment on my part…but I’m hoping that this will help me move on from grieving over my iBook, which still holds a special place in my heart (which goes to show that NOT naming it didn’t make it easier to cope with the loss…sniff, sniff.)

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you: “CK.” Nope, not for Calvin Klein since I’m not really a fashionista…but Clark Kent! Why Clark Kent? Well, it flew in to save me when my iBook crashed, just when Superman was (and still is) all the rage. My laptop has a bit of the “superman” feel to it with its handsome steely look and sturdy feel.

So why CK and not Superman? Well—it’s simple, I would like to go for some subtlety with a dash of style. I realize that unlike the real guy, this one isn’t bulletproof and won’t be able to leap tall buildings but I do hope it will love me as much as Superman loves Lois Lane…sigh!

Now to make sure there’s no Lex Luthor or kryptonite around…

Am I just hallucinating or is CK's hardcase the same color as Superman's blue suit?! :-)
Welcome to Jojie's life, CK. Here's to many memories and words yet to be written.
PS: Parang di bagay na friends si CK at AprilBoi. Mine sounds so jologs, hehe. :-) But I'm sure CK wouldn't mind.

Hi Beng, yeah, I did notice the similarity, gusto ko nga sana itabi ang photos sa layout and put a caption like, "notice the likeness" or something like that--but, anyway, super glad you noticed! Yeah, I dont think CK minds what the names of his friends are--one day magmi-meet din sila ni April Boi!:)

i heard your new CK weighs a ton... how could you soar with him?

Gypsy said...

I am sure superman weighs a lot too, but he has superstrength...;-)

Why not Kal-El, the real name of CK? Got an idea, paste a big "S" sticker on the case and a red cape to boot. This way, when you carry it around, people will easily notice CK and marvel at it (no pun intended though CK is from DC comics and not Marvel comics).

Btw, since you and CK are already "on", maybe you would like to rethink changing your URL to Gypsy's Lane? :):):)

Hi Gilchrist, thanks for your out of this world (maybe you're in Krypton!) suggestions! But I think I am contented with my name choices...hehehe

I. Knew. It.

That one day you would come to your senses and name your new gadget :)
