Awwwwwwww ... so romantic


  1. 1. My whole family swoons in The Apple Store.

    2. We have to stay 200 feet away from The Apple Store lest we make another $3,000 impulse purchase.

    3. FINALLY that dippy song has a purpose.

  2. I was going to comment on the Mac, but I realized it's Lent and I ought refrain. I cannot guarantee this bonhomie will hold past Pentecost, though.


  3. Joke:

    You never say why you don't like Macs. Not even during the many dull weeks after Pentecost, when it gets very hot and dull, and amusement is sorely needed.

    What you ought to do is remember to use the "to" part of the infinitive, which, if you hadn't noticed, is considered by us English Majors to be the thing to do.

    Ordinarily I would let you off with a warning, but it's Lent, and you need to do penance.

    So read this.
    And say a rosary, not leaving out a single mystery.

    And then go forth and sin no more.

  4. I sing this very song to my new MacBook every morning.

  5. I have been a long-standing member of the Mac Club (more than 15 years).

    But on Monday, my Mac was unknowingly the cause of much distress. The US Govt apparently sides with Joke and refused to interface properly with my Mac with no explanation, thus barring me from submitting a funding proposal on time.

    Rather than blame my beloved Mac, which the Govt tried to imply was at fault, I focus my anger and burning resentment at the Govt for complete failure to warn (or even suggest the possibility) of possible browser interface incompatibilities for the final authorization step.

    "Use Internet Explorer," they said.

    Never mind the fact that MS stopped supporting IE for Mac years ago, and you can no longer find versions that run on today's OS. "Don't you have access to a PC?"

    No! We're a Mac-based company!

    Joke is obviously in cahoots with the Govt.

    Oh, the humanity!

    (P.S. Forgive the extra long run-on sentences. They are the last remaining vestiges of working on a multiple page federal funding application for several weeks.)


Gentle Readers:

For the time being, I've turned off comment moderation. Please don't spam; it's not nice.
