My new monitor is arriving this afternoon, so I’m going to disconnect my computer and everything on my desk in order to make room. These activities are strangely fun (and comforting) for me. The disconnecting of wires isn’t that exciting, but rewiring everything from scratch, in an effort to make everything look perfect — that’s fun.

And seeing the new monitor when it’s finally in place is going to be sweet. It’s about twice the size of my current monitor, and it’s widescreen, so it will look pretty striking — even if it wastes most of its time displaying Finale scores.

And the smell of new electronics… Mmm… For me, that smell is up there with the smell of baking cookies or hot beef stew or even the smell of trees after a spring rain. Really, the smell of new electronics may trump them all. But I’m kind of a freak.
