i had a little computer mishap and got to sit on the phone with apple and while waiting to speak with a tech got to hear a recording tell me repeatedly how “magical and revolutionary” the new ipad is. and then i got an appointment at the apple store and again was told over and over through signs and screens how “magical and revolutionary” this new device was going to be.
well, if apple can slap on such hyperbolic descriptions to what seems to be just a rather large ipod/touch, then i’ll tell you what has been magical and revolutionary in our world.
:: the filet mignon i had the other night. omar and i made our way to a restaurant the other night, and even though the waiter tried to convey with urgency my need to order one of the few remaining specials of the night (a 25! oz! prime rib! who eats that??!!), i passed and opted for the filet. my heavens it was good. and was itself large enough for a good leftover meal last night.
:: my photos with this lens. well, they would be magical and revolutionary if i had it. a gift to celebrate my 30th birthday next month? a gift to celebrate giving birth to a third baby? both very good reasons.
:: parking set aside for pregnant women at the grocery store. it’s a beautiful thing. and don’t think i won’t come up to you and point out the sign if you choose to park there and are not, in fact, pregnant.
:: apple. i can dish out the snarky remarks about the ipad along with everyone else, but there is indeed something borderline magical and revolutionary about a company that will take your banged up computer and within a couple of hours have it back in your hands like nothing ever happened. i remember having an issue with our old toshiba years ago and it took them days just to tell us what needed to be fixed. days.
