First, it is the female equivalent of the central character of J.K. Rowling's hugely popular books. The series of books which my owner didn't read but she still viewed all of the movies.
Second, the books speaks of amazing wizardry and everything magical. In that aspect, I am also magical because I perform tricks. Tricks which she thinks aren't funny. I actually annoy the heck out of her, sometimes. But I'm still loved so go figure who is the tricky one in this symbiotic situation.
Third, I was baptized a female as I'm prone to tantrums and I'm as fickle minded as a hot tempered member of the fairer sex. Sometimes, I do as directed. Other times, I go all blue screen on her. Most times, I am like a light bulb. I switch on then I switch off consecutively for several minutes. Naturally all these weird behavior drives my owner batty mad.
Poor girl is under so much stress. Several factors seem to all line up and combine to give her sleepless nights. I don't help by being such a difficult gadget to operate. But hey once, I'm on (after several attempts to warm me up) I function and perform really well. What can I say? I'm not a morning person just like my owner so it's natural I am very cranky at 8 in the morning.
I better get my act together, real soon. I've heard her talking about replacing me with a top of the line laptop. She is planning to get herself one for her birthday, this year. Good thing she is still very broke and has a long way to go before she can achieve that plan. Hmmm but she just might have enough saved by Christmas. Oh huh, now I'm in trouble!
In case you haven't guessed correctly ... I'm Harriet Potter, her HP desktop computer. I know she loves me, she just has a funny way of showing it. Mea culpa, I don't blame her, at all. :D
