Someone at our apartment complex put a perfectly good skinny computer monitor out by the garbage today. (About the thickness of your average hardback Lord of the Rings book.) Works fine, great screen resolution, nothing at all wrong with it. I think that literally the only reason they threw it away is... well... it's ugly. It used to be white, I think, but now it's kind of orangey white? And dusty, and old, and, well, ugly. But I like it. It is mine now. I will name it Sveta. Why, I don't know. Just feels like the right name for it.

This is a first for me. I've named computers before, but never a monitor. But the poor thing looked so woebegone in the trash like that, and it's so ugly, I feel it deserves a name. So it is Sveta.
