On a average day. A day in which it either rains in the morning or its extremely hot. I might pull out my white ibook laptop and I'll carefully slide a CD or DVD into the slot loaded drive. I would leave it for a while - venture off to do something else. I might make sandwich or I would watch television. Often times I would go back and check if it has fallen asleep, at which point I would wake it up again. Wake it up to make sure that the lithium ion rechargeable batteries have not yet overheated, posing a fire hazard. because I am too lazy to send them back to the dealer.

Sometime I would return to it, wake it up and proceed to repeated press the F9, F10, and F11. Watching the windows zoom in and out of the screen. Sometimes I would purposely open multiple windows so that I can make the animation more random. Pretty. Other times I would bring up the RSS screen saver and watch the text fly around the screen but that doesn't work unless the power cord is plugged in.

I listen to music as well currently I am listening to Kanye West's Album: Drive Slow. But the hard drive tends to get pretty hot after playing music and I wonder it is going to melt through the plastic. One of my greatest personal fears is that at so point when I return to remove the CD or DVD. That, at that dreaded moment in time, the CD or DVD would become permanently stuck inside the drive. Forever sending it into eternal damnation. But today is not that day.
