A picture is worth...

a new desktop wallpaper.

I love my Mac. I think I have probably told a few thousand people that. Pretty sure I have.
One of the things I really like is the ease in changing the desktop picture. I guess I tend to get a little bored with what I've got up there. Either that or I have ADD when it comes to this topic. I don't know.
I seem to change my desktop AT LEAST weekly. Sometimes daily. If I see a picture I like, I "steal" it (another great thing about the mac? If you want to copy a picture, just hit the apple key, shift, and the number 4, and voila!).
When I had my windows desktop, I wasn't like this. Sure, I changed the picture, usually with the seasons or holiday. But I have to admit I have been pretty out of hand with it since I got my laptop.
The picture I have on usually depends on my mood. I tend to like the irreverant ones. Anything funny or entertaining. I had Calvin and Hobbes on there for a long time. I also really like going to see what the Starz Bunnies are up to. They usually have a few wallpapers up. Right now I have a picture of a large ice burg in some cold, cold water up. Don't know why. But I am thinking that will probably change. Its been there a few days.
Frequently I use pictures I've taken. That usually works, too. Until I see something different and my brain thinks ooh, cool picture, bet that would look good as wallpaper...

So there you have it. I guess I am a wallpaper junky. The first step is admitting the problem, right?

I am, too - but on my PC! I change Gilda's pic all the time. It's really easy, though - 3 clicks and i'm done!

I seem to change wallpaper on my Mac depending on what trip I just got back from or what 'amazing' photo I have that I must look at all the time .. but here's my odd twist to it.. I must have this EXACT same wallpaper on my office PC and on my iPhone... I know I am very weird
