macs UK

For those of you that enjoy the Mac v. PC commercials from Apple, take a look at the UK versions. They have a distinctly Brit feel to them. I think my favorite is the piechart one, which is similar to the US version. But I like the terminology. Monkeybusiness, indeed.

my inner editor cringes

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have an inner editor. And man, is she picky. She harps on everything she reads, even when it’s not her own. She bitches at me when I don’t use all caps, but I ignore her.

But I can’t any longer.

Every time I see an ad for Will Smith’s movie “Pursuit of Happyness” I just want to scream. I have so far refused to see it on principle. Will you just spell the freaking word right already? I don’t care if it’s on purpose, it bugs the crap out of me.

Gah, it drives me nuts. I just got a flyer from B&N with an ad for the book. Same spelling. Somebody shoot me them!

almost paradise

I have my screen saver set to show pictures in my Belize folder. So when my computer goes idle, I am reminded of our Thanksgiving vacation.

I know I haven’t written about it yet. I’m not sure I can put it into words.

But each time I see those shots of our friends and that beautiful aqua-colored water, I long to go back. I doubt we’ll ever move there. I think it would ruin the charm. Because you don’t notice paradise when you’re struggling to make ends meet. Not as much as you notice it when you’re just there to get away. I want to go again this year, but that money cuts into our house fund. So I’m not sure we’ll stay as long as we did last time, or if we’ll even go. We would like to, though. It was an incredible vacation. I miss that place and our friends who live there.

migraines can suck it

I had the worst migraine I’ve ever had last night. I thought my head was going to pop off. It was awful – I wanted to die. I’ve never felt that way before. I laid in bed and cried until I went to sleep.

I wish there were some way to get rid of these. Besides a lobotomy.

game day!

i unexpectedly got a chance to go to the playoffs. i’ll be at the stadium, freezing my hiney and screaming my head off. i’m quite excited about it. what a nice surprise that was. i’m taking my camera and 300 mm lens. i’m hoping that our view will be ok so i can snap a few shots. we’ll see… (we will have an obstructed view, and i’m not sure what that consists of, yet.)
