Meet My New Girlfriend, Jeffra

Yes, yes, I know I've been away for quite some time now but I have excuses! They are many and myriad, these excuses - but first, Jeffra;

Hi, I am Jeffra. And I love Kok very much.

She's a beauty ain't she? I'm like, talking to you through her right now. Trippy huh? I won't bore you with her, um, measurements but she's definitely beefier than any system I've owned in my life before. For the first time ever, I can actually run games not published a decade ago. Joy.



I named her after my favourite Sim which I lost to toasted silicon after Priscille's very sudden demise last Wednesday. Priscille was my girl for the past 4 and a half years. She was with me through my entire tenure in India, working hard almost 24 hours a day to keep me entertained, happy, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. I have an incredibly low threshold for boredom, you see, and I've sworn off television completely (I am proud to say that I have not seen a complete show on the telly for four entire years now). In the intervening days between Priscille's death coma and Jeffra's entrance into my life, I tried sitting in front of the bloody tube for a bit and I found that I can no longer enjoy anything passively. I need to read, to click, to interact. This is one reason I have never named our TV. It's a buggered piece of machinery. Mechanical, cold and unfeeling. Now, we'll discuss my computer fetishism one day. Today is not that day.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a bit of "us alone" time to spend with Jeffra.

She says hello, by the way.
